Why not use both at the same time? - I do not think one disables the other or interferes in its functioning. But if that is the case right-click My Computer ... Properties/Hardware/Device Manager and there you will see the touch pad listed as an input device (I think). unclick where it says use this device, or uninstall the driver. However uninstalling the driver is a last resort - it may not be straightforward to reinstall it in cases when you do not have a mouse handy.

I am facing problem with my touch pad. it has some indicator light. while am in work with touch pad, the indicator suddenly on nad the touch pad becomes locked. its reyally frusatration to me. dont...


The button to turn the touch pad on and off can be touchy. there is not a way to adjust that either other than going to a repair shop and have it replaced. That can be a little pricey, so one less expensive way to solve your problem would be to go purchase an external mouse like you would use on a normal desktop pc. They plug into a USB port and you can then turn off the on board touch pad and still have mouse to work with.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

My toch pad is not working properly please help me to solve this problem the pointer is not moving on the screen


Did you swtich from touchpad to regular mouse recently?

If not plug in a mouse and go to control pannel and click on mouse icon.

See if the touch pad is turned off in that section, if it is turn it back on and unplug your mouse

If its on then reinstall the touch pad driver from your manufacture driver page.

If it still does not work you may have a defective touch pad that needs replacing

I hope this helps

Cursor will not move on screen when using touch pad i've shut the computer down and restarted but cant get the cursor to move


Please press Fn+F9 key to ensure the mouse pad isn't disabled. The key should have these symbols on it.

Turn off touch pad


When you are booting up from a cold shutdown, Tap the F2 key until you enter the Bios/System Setup Pages. Usually you use the Alt+P key combination to navigate in these pages, but there should also be a legend at the bottom of these pages to indicate what keys change pages. In these pages you will come upon your option to choose pointers. One is usually, glide pad + mouse. I'd try that first, as it senses when a mouse is attached and disables the glide pad. However, this doesn't always work with Dells. So, if that is the case, choose Mouse Only for a PS2 Mouse and or Serial for a USB Mouse.

The Glide Pad is found in the Control Panel, Mouse where you have a property tab that has the settings for your glide pad. Besides setting pressure sensitivity you can also disable it in some Dell Systems.

If none of this works for you, look on the bottom of your laptop for the Service Tag number and send that set of numbers and letters to me using the comment box below and I'll find you the driver update that should repair your Glide Pad.

As always, please rate all our solutions on FixYa.

Istalling mouseb has turned off touch pad ?


This usually happens so you dont have 2 mice running at once. Unplug the new mouse and your touchpad should come back.
