Windows 7: Touchpad Problem on Inspiron 1526

18 Nov 2009   #11


snowdog, your solution does indeed work, to an extent, on my dell inspiron 1526 with windows 7 ultimate, 64 bit. scrolling is restored and the mouse is completely usable...for a short period.

after a while, during each time the computer is turned on (i turn it off and back on, and it works again), it starts becoming convinced that my mouse is a keyboard device. and if i have a window open that it can type in, it starts typing random letters (if i try to type something then accidentally hit it, it sometimes even copies what it was i typed and pastes it over and over again) and beeping and being generally unruly.

im trying to determine which drivers on that site are best, as the first one is seemingly newest, BUT does not list windows 7 as supported, where the next is significantly older and does list win7 (and seems to be the one included with win7, as it doesnt enable scrolling.) im trying the next one down and will post my experience with it.

edit: scrolling works, we shall see if it bugs out

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

hmmm. I wonder why it's not working right for you, I've been using it and haven't had a problem. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, are you maybe using a different version? or maybe Dell used different touchpads for the same model?

worked, just bugged out after a while.

i installed the third one at the time of my post, the one labeled 7.5.303.something and that has yet to have had a problem, i'll post again if there happens to be an issue, but for now, it worked fine
