    My touch pad is also giving me the problem with the icon missing, and the pointer not responding. First the pointer was clicking on things i never clicked, rapidly from one thing to the next. Now no response at all.

    I have the same problem... I re-booted my computer and after doing so my computer no longer thinks I have a touchpad mouse.. instead it thinks I have a regular mouse.. or that's what it looks like on the control panel. It's very frustrating!

If your power adapter is a 2-pronger this is a known issue in Dell power adapters. Call Dell support and they may be able to replace it with a 3-pronger

i have the same problem with an older Dell B130, but i am using a new aftermarket power adapter with only two-prong plug. When i use the OEM power adapter with 3-prong plug it works fine (there is a tiny short in the jack that plugs into the computer, i can get the OEM to work by pulling the cable to one side) Odd that the power adapter affects touchpad performance, but it does

Try using your touch pad when your laptop is running on batteries (while power supply is disconnected).
Many of new power supply supplied with dell laptops are faulty and cause touchpad to work erratically/horribly

How do you enable a touch pad on a dell computer. The feature disappeared after my laptop was reloaded due to a virus

Two different ways to do it...
1. Use your function keys... Combination of the Fn key (next to the Alt Key) and one of your "F" keys, look on your F-Keys you will see icons.. Look for the Touchpad Icon

Then Press Fn and Corresponding F Key at the same time to Enable/Disable Touchpad...


Go to scroll to bottom of website's home page and look for: SUPPORT AND DRIVERS.... Click on the Text and It Will Then Ask You To CHoose ... LAPTOP, or Desktop, or Tablet etc.... You Choose LAPTOP..... THen Choose THe Model from the list, then choose the model number from the list and it will then take you to Your Laptops Drivers Page... Scroll Down and Find Your Touchpad Driver and Redownload it and install it....

Hi, my laptop mouse pad works fine but at the side and bottom where i can use it to scroll down the page wont work, can sum one tell me how to get it back again, thank you

go to the control panel > mouse and pointing devices > go to device settings tab > highlight the touchpad listed and click on settings > look half way down the list where it say "scrolling" click on that and make sure both vertical and horizontal scrolling is checked. If it is and the scrolling still doesn't work,

go to control panel > device manager > scroll down to mouse and pointing devices > highlight the touchpad and disable it > wait 45 seconds, then re-enable it > hit apply and ok. Reboot

I want to deactivate my touch pad on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop. Please advise how

If you do not see a Touchpad icon in your systray(lower right), go to:

Start/Control Panel/System

On the left choose "Device Manager".

Select "Mice and other pointing devices" and highlight "Dell Touchpad"

Either right click and "Uninstall" or click the uninstall icon at the top.

Restart your machine and it will automatically update the driver from Dell which will put the Touchpad icon back in the system tray.

Click on this icon and go to "Device Select"

Check the "Disable Touchpad/Pointing stick when external USB mouse id present.
