I have experienced some loss of functionality of my touchpad on my Acer laptop. I suspect that Windows 7 doesn't support all features of touchpads for Vista and older computers.

I think that the official driver is the way to go in most cases, but if that doesn't work, it is futile, until if and when a new driver comes out.

Reboot and enter your bios (instructions are on the boot screen), reset your bios to defaults. If you're using a synaptics touchpad, they're a bit finicky and you need to remove your existing software in the control panel and install a fresh copy of it.

Upgrading your laptop OS from Vista to Win 7, you have to reinstall your Bluetooth drivers for Win 7 OS(ie x86bit or x64bit) for the Bluetooth to function properly.

Web cam of inspiron 1545 is not working with windows 7 what shall i do?


Go to www.dell.com and at the bottom of teh page select "Drivers & Downloads" under "Support".
Once in the support section select "Support for home users"
In the next page select laptops > Inspiron laptops > Inpsiron 1545
Then it will ask for an OS, select the windows 7 and when you find your driver it will give both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. This should fix your issue.

If you purchased it new, you should be able to get the keyboard replaced under warranty. Dell's come with a minimum 1-year warranty. Give them a call and tell them the issue with the spacebar.

If you've reinstalled the drivers for the touchpad, the issue is likely the hardware- if in warranty, contact Dell tech support- if not, you may need to purchase the palmrest assembly and consult support.dell.com for the install instructions

The touchpad on my Inspiron 1545 isn't responding.

If you reinstalled the drivers then most like there is a problem with the touch pad its self. If you are still under warranty I would call Dell Tech Support to get the touch pad replaced on the system.

Hi there,

This can be very frusturating but you can go to Dell's website and download the software that controls the "hotkeys" and reinstall free. Click on applications, and download/run quickset program. See link below:
