    I have a vostro 1400 and suffer the same problem. I set the touchpad to my liking and these settings are lost even when I "hibernate" my laptop. Very frustrating to have to reset the snail pace touchpad to something a bit quicker everytime I turn my otherwise very robust machine on.

My laptop is only a few months old, and the touchpad randomly stopped working....what can i do?

If you have already tried another mouse and works fine in Windows OS then the problem gets narrowed down to the touchpad being faulty and would have to replace it but don't discard the touchpad could be accidently disabled in the control panel of the mouse properties. Dell laptops usually have a driver chipset and driver for the mouse touchpad specifically which you can get on

try reinstalling before getting new touchpad part for your laptop. Dell has spareparts where you can buy a refurb one and install yourself. Instructions on how to take apart your laptop is on the same site.

Dell inspiron 1545 mouse pad not working

You need to install the Dell touchpad drivers and application from the Dell support website to access the properties. You can download the drivers from the link after you select the correct Operating system version: Save the file on desktop and right click on it, to Run as Administrator. Install the drivers and reboot your system. Now you would be able to access the Touchpad properties from the Mouse properties in Control Panel.

I brought my computer to geek squad to check something and when i got it back the touchpad was disabled, how do i turn it back on?

1. Go to the "Control Panel" and double click on the "Mouse" item.
2. Go through the tabs in the "Mouse Properties" window & find the tab where you can set up your touchpad. This differs from laptop to another since it is based on the touchpad's drivers.
3. On that tab, check & make sure that your touchpad is enabled. If it is not, then change the setting to enabled.
4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.

If you cannot find a tab to set up your touchpad, then your touchpad drivers might not be installed. In this case, you will need to install them first.

If the above does not work, then chance are that your touchpad's connector (which connects the device to the laptop's motherboard) is either loosely connected or not connected at all. You will need to open your laptop to be able to check & correct this.

Can't "tap" on my Dell touchpad

I had the same problem after purchasing an HP laptop with a Synaptics TouchPad. After using a wireless mouse for awhile, the TouchPad stopped working. The TouchPad light was white, indicating it was enabled. No TouchPad devices was listed anymore in the Mouse Properties in the Control Panel. I tried reloading the driver but nothing changed.

After shutting down the laptop and removing the battery (according to owner’s manual) it worked again. After turning on the laptop, make sure the TouchPad works. Then go to Control Panel, Mouse, Device Settings tab, and make sure a Synaptics TouchPad is listed in the Devices list and that the Enable button is grayed out.

Brand new dell xps laptop, touchpad will not scroll.

The Dell touchpad settings can be accessed in Vista by going to Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Mouse. If the box that appears when you open the mouse properties doesn't say anything about dell then you need to install the driver for the touchpad. To do this go to and then click "Enter a Tag", then enter your service tag, which can be found on the underside of your computer, into the box and click "Go". After selecting the operating system that is running on the machine click the little + icon next to "Imput Device Drivers" and once that expands download and install the one that says "Dell - Driver Applies to Touchpad / Pointing Stick". Once it is installed the computer may need to restart.

I am using Windows xp, Ram 512 MB,model acer, problem is keypad, mouse and touchpad not funtioning. system opens and closes promptly. do u have any solution for this.

Maybe you just need the drivers updated
could have been accidently uninstalled
if that don't work do a system restore to an earlier date when you know the pc worked
right click my computer then properties you'll find system restore in there
then restart pc and see if that helps

Inspiron 1525 keyboard/touchpad locked.

Press ctrl alt del together then try to enter your password. If it doesn't work. restart your computer by holding down the power button for 10 seconds or until the computer turns off. Restart and tap F8 repeatedly as soon as the light comes on. Choose 'Last known good configuration' using your keyboard. Then press enter. Try if you can login now.

Dell I1720 Touchpad will not save settings. every time I reboot I have to manualy bump up the touchpad speed.

Click this if your computer runs on windows vista or this if it runs on windows XP. Run the file to update or reinstall your touchpad driver. Reboot when prompted and readjust the touchpad settings. Restart to check if the settings are kept.
