This may be a simple driver glitch. Uninstall the drivers for the mouse, or synaptic touch pad, from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. If there's still no change, try going to Dell's support site and check for updated drivers. These drivers are usually in a utilities package instead of being an individual driver. If you still have problems get back to me and I'll dig a little deeper.

How di make my mouse work


usb mouse or mouse bad ?

Look at the type of mouse you have.

To date, there are three types of mice: the USB mouse, the PS/2 mouse and the Bluetooth mouse.


USB mice connect with a USB adapter, which has a rectangular shape. Conversely, the PS/2 mouse uses a PS/2 adapter, which is round.


Finally, there's the Bluetooth mouse, which has no external adapters.

Plug the mouse into your machine.


Now, how you do this will depend on the mouse you're using.

With a USB mouse, simply plug your device into your laptop's USB adapter, which will also be rectangular in shape.


For PS/2 mice, you'll need to plug it into a PS/2 adapter. Plug your mouse into the PS/2 end then plug the other end into your laptop's USB adapter.

And for Bluetooth mice, no plugging is required.

Install the mouse drivers.


If your mouse is not plug-and-play, you're going to need to install its drivers. To do this, insert the CD or diskette that came with your device.

The installation should occur automatically.


Pair your mouse, if using a Bluetooth mouse.

At this stage, non-Bluetooth mice are ready to be used.


However, if you are installing a Bluetooth mouse, you must perform one additional step: pairing it to your machine.


To achieve this, use your laptop's touchpad and right-click on your Windows screen. Select the option "Pair Device." From there, follow the on-screen instructions to sync your mouse with yourcomputer.



Place your mouse onto a mouse pad. Before using your mouse, you need to place it onto a mouse pad.

This should be done for all types of mice, whether they are wireless or trackball.

Otherwise, movement will be difficult



mouse pad


Examine your mouse pad.

Dirt and grime can affect performance and slow down mouse sensitivity, if not shut it down altogether.


Make sure the surface of the track pad is clean and that there is nothing that has managed to get beneath it or around any trackball buttons that could affect the pressing and depressing of the component.


Check to see if your mouse pad has been turned off.

If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.


To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.

Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.

Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.

The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option. Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK. If this does not work,


Check the manufacturer of your laptop (for example, Toshiba) and then navigate to their official website. Find an area for Software and Drivers, and move on to that area.


Enter your laptop number (check your documentation/manuals and/or the bottom of the computer) and look through the drivers that are presented as a result of this number input.


It could be that your mouse pad simply needs updated drivers. Find the driver that corresponds to your computer and mouse pad (for example, most Acer laptops use a Synaptics touch pad).


Then, click on download.

Once the drivers have downloaded, double click them to ensure they install, restart your laptop, and your mouse pad should be working again.


hope this helps

My touch pad works with a mouse,but when I tap my touch pad nothing happen's,thats when I lef click my mouse,it will move the icon,but wont tap on toanything


This has happened to me and it took me hours to figure it out. I hope yours is the same problem...
Make sure you dont have your touch pad set to off. On my ASUS It is F9 on my keyboard. the key shows an icon of the touch pad with a slash (/) through it. If you do not see this on your keyboard try looking in control panel and see if there is a setting in there. Good Luck. Please let me know if this worked.

Mouse wont move the cusur


Connect another mouse to the computer and see if that is able to move the cursor. This will tell you if it's the mouse or trackpad that is having trouble, or if it's the computer/software having the trouble.

easy, your touching your mouse pad (square you touch to move the mouse), you can turn it off and use a regular mouse, turn off the laptop, plug in a mouse, windows will automatically detect it.

On every Toshiba notebook Touch Pad can be disabled on two different ways. The first one is using FN+F9 key combination or using DISABLE option in mouse properties.

Make changes to the mouse and mouse pointers in the Mouse Control Panel. To open Mouse, click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Mouse.

Good luck,
