windows 7 home premium 64, and Windows 10 64 bit

If what you have works then do not mess with it.

Like they say, if it ain't broke then don't fix it!

Thanks gopu18

Windows 7

I just installed the 64 bit, dell input driver r244796, on the Dell Inspiron 1525, and the scrolling does work. This should work for 64bit Vista or Windows 7. Here's the link for the download....

Dell touchpad settings question

I was able to utilize the driver mentioned and got back the scroll bar functionality. However, I want to turn off the double tap (which gets read as a left mouse click). I drag my thumb and it keeps causing me to relocate my cursor while I am typing...

Any ideas? I could not find anything in the driver settings and was hoping there would be an options under the generic mouse settings, but nothing there.

Windows 7
Found the windows control to adjust the touchpad

With the driver mentioned earlier, quoted below:

Dell TouchPad / Pointing Stick 64bit

I was finally able to get to the control to adjust the settings for the slide controls and double tap. Can not disable doubletap, but can at least adjust the speed to make it not happen as often. It also allows the ability ti disable if a usb mouse is installed.

I had to go through the control panel and go in through the mouse controls, which did not show up before the new driver was installed.

Dell is pretty lazy about linking drivers and supporting out of warranty computers.. The alps touchpad in the latitude D620 is identical to the one for a D630 (and probably an inspiron 1525 for that matter), as is most of the other hardware, yet Dell blatantly tells its customers that a D620 won't run windows 7. They don't say they won't support it, their techs actually tell their customers a D620 won't run windows 7. The answer is to find another model that is supported for 7 with the same hardware as your computer, usually by searching for drivers in a slightly higher model number
