Depending on your specific model, you should have the option of disabling your touchpad when a USB mouse is plugged in. Open control panel and look for the mouse settings. If that option is not available, there are a number of free utility programs you can download to achieve this.

SOURCE: Internal wireless card has been disabled. How do you fix this?

Hi car7924,

First, make sure that the wireless switch on the left side of the computer is turned on (this should make the WIFI light go on -- beneath the lower right corner of the screen). If it doesn't work, then try going to Start Menu > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network Connections.

You should see the Wireless Network Adapter in the window that comes up. If you don't, you need to download the driver for that adapter. The most common adapter in the D820 is the Dell 1390 WLAN MiniCard, and the driver for it can be downloaded at the following web address:

If, on the other hand, you do see the Wireless Network Adapter, but it says "Disabled" underneath the name, then right-click it and select "Enable." This should make it work.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,

SOURCE: dell latitude D610. Screen goes black. External Monitor OK.

Make sure you have not accidentally used the FN+F5 key
That combination sets the laptop to use an external display.

If using that does not give you a display take a small torch (flashlight if in USA) and shine it at an angle on the laptop screen.
If you can see any sort of picture you would be looking at replacement of some minor parts to the laptop screen

Hope this gives you the information you need. If not add any extra information you may have and lets see if we can FixYa


It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our expert’s answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.

Thank you

As far as I can tell from the Dell website, this mouse does not have programmable buttons. Here is the link to the description for this product:
It is listed as being compatible with the following systems:
Latitude 13 Latitude 2110 Latitude E5410 Latitude E5510 Optiplex 980 I wouldn't think it would require a new driver, as almost all mice are plug and play compatible with Windows.

This bluetooth 5 button mouse does have programmable buttons, but is about ten dollars more than the one you are asking about:

Dell Laptop Trackball Too sensitive!

Go to control panel. Select mouse. In the window that opens, select the dell touchpad tab. Click where it tells you.

Then, on the bottom left of the next window that opens, select "pointing stick settings." Uncheck the "tap to click" and the TouchCheck "Enable" boxes.

That seemed to work for me. you can also disable the touchcheck on the touchpad.
