Windows 7: Dell touchpad driver cannot start

28 Apr 2009   #11

XPx64 Pro & Win7x64 Ultimate

Been meaning to post, mine hasn't had a problem in quite a while either. Maybe some automatic update in Win7 addressed it?

Windows 7 Build 7100

I have a M1330 and those are the exact drivers I use on it posted above. If your touch pad isn't working properly it could be a hardware issue or maybe a loose connection somewhere.

I have two Dell Laptops with the Dell Touchpads. Dell Mini 9 Netbook and Dell Inspiron 1525. They use the same Alps driver version 7.1.1500.2 which was loaded automatically by Windows 7 build 7100. Search for that version.

win 7
mouse click causes loss of window focus

I have a similar problem.

When I click in the window, it looses focus.

When the OS starts the mouse click work fine. After some time I start seeing this problem.

This is happening on a desktop (not a laptop). I have Kingston Trackball drivers installed by OS.

The only workaround I have found is starting task manager. I had this problem in Vista also. Was hoping Win 7 would have fixed it.

Windows 7

My issue has been resolved by Dell replacing the touchpad, motherboard, hard drive, (then upon them wanting to replace the LCD too???), I talked them into replacing the whole laptop. Now it is running great.
