Question about Dell XPS M1330 Notebook

Touch Pad Security

I have a built in touchpad sensor. It was working at first before I had Windows Vista - Ultimate Upgrade installed. Then I lost it completely. But, the driver is still in tack. I just need to get to Biomenu to run now. Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Glenn Fluehr

This may just be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the drivers for it, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't work, then try a system restore. Still not working, do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Try these in this order, one will work for you.

Toshiba Satellite A355-S6935 touchpad problem


That is normal, because the touchpad requires a driver. Windows 7, fortunately, comes with driver installation through the Windows Update.

Simply launch Windows update (Start Menu> type "Windows Update" > hit 'enter'), and select all the updates and hit update. You could also manually do it, by going to Toshiba's website, finding your computer model in the "support" category, and finding the appropriate touch-pad driver. (I believe it would be called "Synaptic Touchpad Driver").


Good luck!

Scrolling function on my touch pad has stopped working after I updated my Window vista to Window 7. Suggest as what should I do for overcoming this problem.


After you upgrade the OS you need to install the drivers for the touch pad.. Once you install the drivers for the touchpad the issue should be fixed...
You might have got the drivers disc along with the computer or you can get the drivers from the support website of acer(www.support.acer.com)

I've a problem with built-in microphone in my toshiba satellita a200 - 1m5 laptop (win vista from manufacturer) , it doesnt work after i'd installed win7, i try to update the high definition sound driver...


Unfortunately, some functionality can be lost in a laptop when upgrading to windows 7. I lost the ability to use the touchpad button for scrolling on my Acer laptop, but found a way around it by using the side scroll bars instead.

I was told that I had to wait for an updated driver to be released, but everything I tried outside of that didn't work for this driver device problem.

I checked the manufactuer, Acer, and also the touch pad manufacturer, and tried other drivers to no avail.

I suspect that you can use vista drivers in win7 but it's a **** shoot when upgrading an older computer. Sorry about that.

You need to install the driver for the touch pad.
Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the Vista version of the drivers that match the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support :-

Upgrade to vista ultimate


If you have a full version of Windows Vista Ultimate, you can just insert the DVD when you logged in your laptop and go to Computer(My Computer) and lauch the installer for Windows on DVD icon (Double Click DVD icon). It will give you the main window for installing Windows and along the way, you should find an Upgrade option. Click that one and it will install windows Ultimate on your system. It Will not format the laptop but installer will just add system files and features to the laptop to run Vista Ultimate.

**If you haven't purhcase a Windows Vista Ultimate Disc, check this link to to purchase just an upgrade Disc (only) of Vista Ultimate.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

An upgrade disc will also not format the laptop instead it will just install additional features and add additional files on the system to run Windows Vista Ultimate

Freezing Touch Pad


Hi,
you have a couple of options here.
1:) check fujitsus website, as sometimes there are drivers specifically designed for touchpads. i.e ALps pointing devices et,c. download if possible and install.
2:) try connecting an external mouse.
3:) take to a computer repair specialist, or if your a competant person. search for downloading the service manual. and remove the touchpad, which usually involves, keyboard-removal. and seperating the touchpad from pickup panel below it.
i,d assume that the pad may have either a loose ribbon cable connection, or has suffered some fluid spillage damage.
