No Dell Touchpad setting tab under Mouse option

This question is answered

Today, for some strange reason, I am no longer able to scroll with my touchpad.  I went to control panel>mouse, but the first tab is "buttons."  My tab for "Dell Touchpad" seems to have disappeared.  Now I cannot scroll or adjust the sensitivity of my touchpad.  It's very sad.  I loved that scroll feature so much... can anyone help?  I tried to do this: "Goto http://support.dell.com > Drivers & Downloads > Choose Model > Choose OS (XP/Vista). Look under Input Device Drivers," but nothing changed.  I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1525 and running Vista

  • Hello,

    I am experiencing the same issue (cannot scroll with the touch pad) on my Latitude E6400. Also, when typing, often my cursor will suddenly jump around. I looked for the settings to make the touch pad less sensitive, but cannot find any. Where will I find a download to re-install the touch pad? Thanks for your help!

  • Hi

    Here is the touchpad driver for your system.

  • Hello Telson,

    Thanks for the quick response. I have the current driver installed; I was thinking maybe I needed to re-install software for the touch pad.

  • hi CARROT_TOP

    Yes, the Touchpad software needs to be reinstalled, make sure the previous one is removed first.

  • Hello Telson,

    I cannot use hotkey to disable or unable Touchpad. I tried to reinstall latest driver but it not works. Please help me !

  • Hi xenlong

    Which system are you using ?. The quickset application must be installed in order for that key to function, please go to support.dell.com and download the Quickset app for your system model.

    Firstly we must remove any previous driver installations

    - Go to Programs and features and remove any 'ALPS/Synaptics' Software.

    - Restart the system

    - Download and install this for windows 7 64bit OS

    - Restart the system.

    I started experiencing this however after I loaded Windows 7 onto my XPS 1530. My touchpad scroll worked perfectly prior to the switch to Windows 7 and now I can't find any tabs/settings for touchpad at all in control panel...

    Can you help?

    I am having the same exact problem with my XPS M1530 after upgrading from Vista to Windows 7. I cannot get my scroll to work again.

    Can you help?

  • I have a XPS 15 (L501x) and I'm running windows 7, 64 bit. I recently had my had my hard drive replaced and I can no longer zoom in and out using my trackpad. I thought I had the right driver downloaded and installed but I guess it was the wrong one. Can someone please point me in the right direction! thanks!
