Dell :: Pointing Stick Covers, The Bumpy Rubber Ones, Who Has Them?

Feb 27, 2009

I'm hunting for some elusive pointstick covers for several D-series latitudes. Specifically, the broad,

flat caps that have about two dozen tiny rubber bumps on them. NOT the narrower, domed, classic "cat tongue" caps.

The Dell website lists four possible parts:
Manufacturer Part# 3X705 | Dell Part# 3X705

Manufacturer Part# KH487 | Dell Part# 310-7703
Manufacturer Part# 7X050 | Dell Part# 310-2870

Manufacturer Part# KH487 | Dell Part# 313-4188
...but they all show a picture of the old cat-tongue caps, not the bumpy ones that came stock with the later D-series laptops .....

Dell Latitude E7440 :: Disable Click On The Pointing Stick

May 6, 2014

Received a new Latitude E7440 today, and I like having the option of a pointing stick and a trackpad depending on what I'm doing, however the pointing stick apparently also can be "clicked" instead of using the dedicated buttons... this is annoying to say the least.

When I'm moving the mouse pointer with the pointing stick, if I press a little too hard it thinks I'm trying to do a click/drag.

I can operate the dedicated buttons just fine, so is there some way to disable this pressure-sensitive click feature on the pointing stick? Otherwise I'll have to disable the stick entirely as it's more annoying that having somebody randomly clicking the mouse buttons while you're trying to work...

HP/Compaq :: Touchpad And Pointing Stick Buttons Locked Together

Apr 8, 2010

I want to be able to scroll with my pointing stick using the pointing stick middle button, but no matter what I set it at with the synaptics software it will only perform the action which the touchpad middle button is set at.

Am I missing some check box I need to uncheck, or something else that I am not seeing. I already tried updating the driver and uninstalling it and reinstalling it, and I tried it with the touchpad disabled, but nothing has worked.

Dell Latitude E7440 :: Usage Of Pointing Stick Leads To Cursor Drifting

Jan 27, 2015

I am experiencing an issue from the usage of the pointing stick (I have gotten accustomed to it) where the cursor would drift slightly about 3-4cm before it stops when I let go of the pointing stick. It occurs maybe about 5-10 times on a working day. The funny part is if I continue to move the pointing stick and letting go just right before it finished drifting, it would continue to drift perpetually until I allow it to finish drifting i.e usually drifts 3-4cm away from the pointed area. It causes me inconvenience whenever im dragging an icon or a browser around and it can get pretty annoying.

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: Cursor Moves When In Tablet Mode (screen Touching Pointing Stick On X220T)

Jun 12, 2011

When I put my X220T in tablet mode, the screen moves just enough to move the pointing stick in the middle of the keyboard to cause the cursor to move. I can't rest my hand on the screen without causing the cursor to move all the way accross the screen.
Am I missing a driver that would disable the nub when the screen is turned over it, or is this a design oversight? I've got the latest BIOS.

Apple :: Combining 1gb Stick With 2gb Stick On MBP 13.3"

Nov 19, 2009

I got a MBP 13" 2.26ghz with 2x 1gb RAM. I was thinking of buying just 1 2gb ram and install it on my MBP so total it's gonna be 3gb RAM.

So, I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried using different size RAM together? I know it's not advisable to do that due to possible instability in performance. But I would like to get some opinion from experienced user.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: F12 Would Skip To Next Track In Playlist

Dec 6, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. On the keyboard the F1-F12 keys double as multimedia keys - so if you press just F5 for example, you'll raise the screen brightness, but hold Fn and press F5 and it'll be a normal F5 press (e.g. will refresh a webpage).

The Multimedia functions of F10, F11 and F12 are Back, Play/Pause and Forward respectively. These have worked for years, for example if I had a song playing in Windows Media Player and hit F11, it would pause the song. F12 would skip to the next track in the playlist. Recently I must have unknowingly changed a setting somewhere because this no longer seems to work. Bizarrely, every other Multimedia key works, so F5 still raises the screen brightness for example.

Dell :: Latitude E6410/6510 Alps Track Pad Verdict?

May 6, 2010

I just bought an E6410 tonight, thanks to a 30% off coupon I found.

All of a sudden, however, I'm doubting my purchase - specifically because this machine uses an Alps touchpad, whereas the Vostro 3300 I was going to buy (before I found this coupon) uses a Synaptics touchpad.

The last time I had a machine with an Alps pad was in 2004 with my Latitude D600, and that thing sucked. I mean, it was an atrocious piece of hardware.

So what's the verdict on the hardware in the new E64x machines? Is it painful to use? I found a thread talking about using different OEM drivers to improve the responsiveness of the device - is this still necessary?

Just curious to see what current owners think about this. I still don't understand why Dell's been so dead-set on using Alps hardware since the D-series. My old C600 had a Synaptics trackpad, and I loved that thing.

Apple :: MBP - Track Record For Hardware Updates

Mar 6, 2009

Even though the desktop refresh took quite awhile, it is to my understanding that you can expect a refresh with Macbooks and MBP's every 6 to 8 months, which should put the refresh sometime between 8 days from now (unlikely) to 2 months and 8 days from now.

Is that a likely assumption, or am I missing something here. And yes, I am well aware of the CPU speed bump in the top two MBP's, what I am talking about is an all around refresh, with exception to body structure obviously.

Dell Studio 1737 :: Touchpad - Alps Pointing Device Not Working On Start Up

Nov 13, 2009

I have a Dell studio 1737 64-bit laptop upgraded to windows 7. I start my computer and the only thing not working is the mouse pointer. The pointer works but, the zoom and scroll doesn't. I downloaded the latest driver version went to device manager and says the device is working, no conflicts. I went to msconfig and it's listed as one of the start up programs. And, yet the zoom and scroll is not working. I made sure I installed the 64-bit version. I opened the file and clicked on the  Apoint file and a install window popped up and, I clicked on yes and, now the zoom and scroll works. When I restart my computer it doesn't show up in the system tray and the zoom and scroll doesn't work. Is the Dell touch pad and Alps pointing device 2  different programs that both have to run at start up and, if so how do I get the Alps pointing device to run at start up?

Sony :: Vaio Z Win7 Apls Pointing Driver

Nov 15, 2009

However, poking around the European Vaio link site I've found a couple of news: first an updated Graphics driver here, but also poking around (in the Originally Installed section) saw an updated Alps Pointing device driver. The version I have installed is 7.2.* while the one for the VGN-Z51XG is a 7.5.*. Downloading the driver I could see that it supports two finger browsing, pinching to zoom and a couple of other features.

Nifty I thought; however I cannot install the driver in my computer - it says "Your operating system is not supported".

Has anyone else tried this? I thought that the pointing HW in all Vaio Zs was the same? Surely Alps cannot build a driver that only works in Win 7 x64 Professional but not Ultimate?

Can someone with a Win7 x64 Professional try to install the driver and then report back with both succcess or failure?

Dell :: XPS 16 Stick-on Perhaps?

Mar 27, 2009

In certain light it's just freakin' invisible, so I have to constantly move around to find an angle that I can actually see the screen at.

Is there some sort of matte-ising coating I can stick onto the screen? (Ideally something which comes in a 17-inch size so I can cut it down to size for the XPS and the 13/15" Crapbooks)

Dell :: Stick With The 1515 Or Get Something Else?

Jun 10, 2009

I currently have the the Dell M1330 with the 4965agn. Had some problems at first but is working beautifullynow.

I am upgrading to the Dell Studio XPS 13 and it has the Dell 1515 Wireless Card, I've been reading that people are saying the Dell 1515 Wireless card have poor performance. Could anyone recommend a good rock solid wireless card with great performances?

I was thinking of switching out the 4965agn from the old laptop to the new one. Or maybe get the Intel 5300 AGN wireless card. possibly the Intel 5100.

Dell :: E6400 Not Recognizing Second Stick Of RAM

Sep 3, 2009

I received my E6400. In short, I like it. It came with 1gb of Ram. So I ordered 4gb of Crucial (2x2gb) ddr2 6400 to put in it.

Well. It's only recognizing one stick of it. The Ram itself is not bad. I've verified this by placing each stick in individually and I get no errors. Would there be any reason the computer would not be recognizing that second stick that isn't hardware?

The bios says the second slot is empty. Which either means that for some reason the software isn't recognizing the ram or the second slot itself is bad?

Started out with XP. It did the same thing. only 1 stick was recognized.
I've installed Vista Home Premium 64-bit.
Bluetooth upgrade was user installed.
What other system info do you need?

Dell XPS 17 :: Screen Going Black When Using USB Stick At Random

Mar 25, 2013

My XPS 17 screen sometimes goes black like the display is turning off when using USB sticks, SD Memory cards or even an external Mouse. If you move the mouse it will resume but if you pull out the USB drive again it will go black causing you to have to move the mouse again. Even using programs that use the User Account Controls will cause it to go black (unlike how User Account dims the screen) causing you to have to move the mouse to bring the screen back.

The only way to stop it from going black is rebooting, until it decides to do it again. However even if you aren't using a USB anymore after it started going black, it will go black at random even when using the internet causing you to have to reboot. It will only do this if the USB or user Account has triggered it going black first.

Sometimes this doesn't happen for a week or two and sometimes it happens a few times a week. Dell has replaced my motherboard and my Graphics card with brand new ones. It seemed to have fixed it until it did it today (week later)

I don't believe it is software related as I have all the latest bio updates, driver updates and windows updates.

I tried something I've never tried before. While it was going black using USB drives I tried pulling the battery charger cable out from the back. When I did that, it completely stopped going dim without a reboot. I've never tried this before and no matter what I tried before doing this the screen would always go black.

Could it be my Power Cable that charges the laptop? or could it be my display? It seems it's related to the charger because me unplugging it seems to have fixed what ever was messed up until it occurs again at random.

Dell :: XPS M1330 Ricoh Memory Stick Problem

Dec 25, 2009

First of all its a great site and thanks you all here. I'm not a native english speaker so excuse me...

I recently installed windows 7 64-bit and for some reason the windows installation didn't install any driver for the memory stick card reader (and didn't even give a notice or something about that).

I tried to manually install a driver and all I could find is the driver R168331.exe. It installed properly but now it can't read all my memory sticks and it only give me a massage that I need to format the stick (even if its an old one that I used recently).

Even if I'm trying to format the stick a massage come up and say that it can't format the stick because it can't read it right.
