Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Netbook (IM1012799OBK)

Open Question

My Dell mini 10 has a mouse pad problem. Everytime i switch on the pc, i cannot use the mouse to open the start button, it just pops up and closes itself. It keeps doing this until i hit the Windows k

I tried replacing the drivers for the mouse pad but didnt work. I even tried detaching and reattaching the mouse pad cable to the motherboard but to no tangible results.

reboot- if that does not work the keyboard/touchpad may be disconnected or bad. ram is under an access panel on the bottom in the middle- you need a small screwdriver to add ram (ddr)

SOURCE: Dell Latiture D600 Touchpad not working!

Have you downloaded and installed the latest glide pad drivers from Dell?

Upon starting your laptop I would enter the bios setup screens and navigate the startup screens using Alt+P to find the pointer settings and set your or check that yours is using Glide Pad only, If you so choose to use an external USB travel mouse, this setting must be changed to Serial only.

Once, you download and install the latest drivers for the Glide Pad, and by the way, the Glide Pad on the D600 series is its only weak link in an otherwise best in class laptop.

To access the sensitivity settings for your Glide Pad after installing the new driver or in your case this may be reinstalling (I have to do this way to often) open Mouse within Control Panel and the last Tab is your Glide Pad. Here you can change a lot of the property values for things like sensitivity and double tap scrolling etc. Your mention of the mouse traveling up and to the right in most case is normal for this laptop.

Here is the link for the Glide Pad driver update. If this link has expired, here is the permanent location. Just click on the download button on this page. Download and move to a unique folder as the file name won't be of help. Move to something like c:\software\Dell\Glide Pad\

If the left mouse button is not working, then it is most likely the microswitch in the button has failed. To fix, you will need to replace the palmrest assembly

SOURCE: My Dell Dimension 8200 PC keeps re booting itself

As soon as u see the black screen...hit F8 repeatedly to get it into Safe Mode.....then go to system restore and reboot/restore system back on a saved day. Then run your virus protection and scan for malware. This should get you back online. You may need a full system scan to locate the effected DLL's anmd killl off your intruder.

Touch pad and keyboard do not work after re boot on dell mini inspiron


Get a USB mouse, click start then right-click computer then select manage. Uninstall your mouse and keyboard driver then restart your system. Windows will automatically reinstall the drivers and you might need to restart your system again.

Why my dell inspiron mini won't shutdown?i've tried to restore the system and reinstall the windows XP, but the problem doesn't solved. I really am need your help. Thanks


Ok here is the real fix from someone who had the exact same issue and now does not.... Disconnect cables ah what is that for advise if you dont know how to solve a problem then dont waste peoples time!!!!!
Type msconfig in the run box from the start menu, go to the tab that says "startup" point your mouse to the box that says BTMeter and click. This should remove the battery switch program from running while the OS is trying to shut down and should resolve your issue with the freeze up during normal shut down process. You do not need this program its just another "checks and measures" program Dell added in Windows already has this program built in and it works fine. Now when the PC starts back up a box will pop up stating you changed your start up applications just put a check in the little option that says "dont show me this again.

My right click menu pop's up when ever i try to click on my laptop anywhere, i have a DELL inspiron 1520.


is your pointer set to be opposite... go into control panel and mouse options, and see if you accidentally switched your mouse clicker buttons.... try clicking with the right click, does it still open your 'right-click' menu? does it work normal on an external mouse?

maybe its just a setting issue,... if not then prolly need a new mouse pad...

Windows keep popping up


I've had this happen to me by accident once and a while. if it's many months then possibly re-installing the touchpad drivers (or updating them) would help.
You can also adjust mouse settings in the control panel, found in my computer on the left side of the window.
Hope this helps a little, It does sound like the buttons are sticky. be sure to rate! :)
