I have a zbook 15 mobile workstation and love it. I have a docking station at work and same docking station at home.
When I plug into the docking station at home the mouse will double click every time I single click. If single click, I have to quickly move off of the object or it will double click every time. I've tried a new mouse, reducing double click speed, and does NOT happen on my docking station at work or when using laptop with mouse plugged in locally.
It is extremely frustrating and makes working from home a pain rather that productive.
I have a problem with double clicking. (assume that all clicking is the left click) It is most apparent on the internet, when I hit the back button once, I go back two pages. Its annoying, but now i'm having trouble highlighting, and other important tasks. I do know about keyboard alternatives, but the mouse is just more convenient.
This problem started soon after my laptop survived having orange juice spilled onto it.
I have done my own research, and most forums state a software problem, but I am sure that I have a mechanical problem. I noticed that there is an "upstroke" and a "downstroke" to my click. When I click, that is the downstroke, the mouse performs as it's supposed to; but when I lift my finger, there is a second click that I did not intend, the upstroke. I've tested this on button clicking games on my laptop, and on other computers.
I am having problems with the touchpad on my laptop. When I am in the middle of typing I have to watch because it will begin typing where my cursor was laft on the screen. I have to be very careful because I barely touch my touchpad and the mouse will click. I have tried to figure out how to turn the sensitivity down but I cannot find it in the devices. It tells me no devices were found when I click on the mouse folder. I have tried and tried but I cannot find anywhere to change the settings for the touchpad. when I am trying to type a paper and I look up and half my paper is in the middle of a different section or it just hasn't been typing because I have clicked out of the screen.
I've recently purchases a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 540 and it worked just fine untill earlyer today.While i was browsing the internet, some how my touchpad developed a problem.It only registeres right click where ever i click.I've deleted the drivers, even tho they were the knewest ones, downloaded a fresh .exe and installed it after the reset and what not and it still has the same problem.
If i turn off the touchpad in the ultranav software and enable only trackapad, the buttons work like they should, the large area in the touchpad registeres as the left click and the small area in the top right is registered as the right click. Tho i can't use the touchpad for navigation.So clicking doesn't works, well neither does tapping. I can doubletap normaly, but i cannot tap and drag such as selecting a block of text.
Again, i've already tried a fresh install of ultranav drivers and it didn't work. The problem manifested itself during normal browsing, nothing was installed nor changed hardware vise. It litteraly changed in a second.how to solve it since the driver reinstall didn't work.
As a confirmed trackpoint user, having the mouse built into the trackpad of the T431s is causing me all sort of grief, including sore wrists - but there are two problems I can't seem to diagnose.
1) When clicking the pad for left mouse click, it often does not work until I click it a few times. I notice this more when I disable the trackpad for cursor movement (which I had to do because the cursor moves when I try to click) - but its there even when that is enabled. It comes and goes. I guess there could be some foot trapped in there, but I've only had it a week and been pretty careful. I'd rather not learn to remove the keyboard on day 6.
2) The right click gets into a condition where, when browsing,a click brings up a new tab of the link I clicked on, rather than showing me the options (open in new tab, incognito window, save link, etc). If I connect a real mouse, it is normal.
About a month ago my touchpad started to act up. I couldn't use the touchpad to click on anything with any consistency. I tried the reinstall of the driver but no change. I bought a new touchpad assembly and it worked perfectly for about a week. Now the pad part works but the scroll feature doesn't. When I install the latest driver from Synaptics the scroll works but the pad is erratic. I've rolled the driver back to the 2006 edition and the pad works perfectly but no scroll. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.
I get 7 beeps after I click the power button. my options but I understand this might mean a processor issue? I am fairly handy so is this something I could do myself if I purchase parts? My laptop is NOT under warranty.
How do I go about getting a new touchpad from Dell on an in-warranty laptop? My left-click button incessantly sticks. It is not a software issue, and I am well within my warranty. I have already done the software trouble-shooting. It is a hardware issue and I'm relatively certain I need a new touchpad.
The touchpad on my Inspiron 11 3000 2 in 1 is driving me crazy. I think it's working as intended, but the fact that the area over the buttons is also part of the touchpad means that I'm constantly moving the cursor right before I click on something... It there any way to disable the touchpad area over the buttons?
I have this system running on Win 8.1; The touchpad is possessed. It moves and click on its own half the time. I've upgraded the drivers to the latest 4/01/14 release but to no avail. I've even restored the system but the result is the same.
Steps I've tried which took nearly 50+ hours to do:
1) restore, uninstall dell drivers, update to newest drivers;
2) restore, and update to newest drivers over existing drivers (included in the restore)
3) performed steps 1 & 2 with and without WOW64
I've been having to use the mouse to save me from this, however, the touchpad still takes over and moves the cursor on its own, though less frequent.
dell 5547/win 8.1 touchpad left click not responding correctly randomly, not all times, left click not work and both clicks respond as right click sometimes once or twice a week….or two or three times a day.
latest driver updated and also driver uninstall and re-install OS format and reinstall but problem still there.
My computer was being used by my girlfriend to watch some show. During her use, my computer "freaked up" and she had to manually shut it down. Now whenever I turn on my computer, it goes to my normal log-in page but instead of my password boz coming up, a gray window comes up. It reads:
"Start Up Repair. Windows cannot repair this computer automatically.If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer. If you continue to see this message, contact you system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance, Click Finish to exit and shut down your computer.

I am not able to wake up my new laptop from sleep via USB mouse or keyboard. I would like to be able to do that because I usually keep my laptop lid closed, so the power button is not immediately accessible. I've searched the forums here and found similar issues with other models, and at least with the Inspiron 17R the problem was recently resolved with a BIOS update. I had no issues when using the same USB mouse and keyboard on an old XPS 8000.
Now for the details:
Model: Inspiron 15 (3521) BIOS: A06
USB Wake Support: Enabled
Operating System: Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit Keyboard: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Software: Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center Mouse: Logitech Performance Mouse MX Software: Logitech SetPoint
If I go into Device Manager, and look at various devices, I see the following:
Human Interface Devices HID-compliant consumer control device - no Power Management tab HID-compliant device - no Power Management tab Logitech HID-compliant Unifying device - no Power Management tab Logitech Unifying USB receiver - no Power Management tab Microsoft Hardware USB Keyboard - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out USB Input device - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out
Keyboards: HID Keyboard Device - no Power Management tab Microsoft USB Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 - no Power Management tab
Mice and other pointing devices: HID-compliant device - no Power Management tab Logitech HID-compliant Unifying Mouse - no Power Management tab
Universal Serial Bus controllers: Generic USB Hub - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out USB Composite Device - no Power Management tab USB Root Hub - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out USB Root Hub (xHCI) - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out
If I go into an Administrator command prompt, I get the following:
powercfg /deviceenablewake "Logitech HID-compliant Unifying device": You do not have permission to enable or disable device wake. powercfg /deviceenablewake "USB Root Hub": You do not have permission to enable or disable device wake.
From what I've been able to find online, I should be able to enable "Allow this device to wake the computer" in the Power Management tab of various devices in Device Manager, especially the USB Root Hub devices, and possibly the Logitech USB and Microsoft keyboard devices. I assume if I can get that enabled, things might work as expected.
I am using dell inspirion n5010 i3. And i am getting problem with its touchpad . Problem is that while using the laptop, touchpad suddenly stops working but right click option continues to work but at the same time usb mouse continues to work and after pressing ctrl+alt+del and doing logout it starts working.
I have a new XPS 12 and has been working fine until today, I lost the cursor for a while. When that came back, I can no longer click (left or right) anything. HAVE to use touch screen. I use mostly as laptop rather than tablet, so would rather get my click back!
Most keyboards have a handy key that performs the logical equivalent of a mouse right-click on whichever screen item currently has focus (no mouse involved). The right-click usually brings up a context menu, of course.
My Dell XPS 12 has no right-click key on its keyboard; not even with the 'Fn' function key.
I've noticed that when I shut down the computer, just before everything turns off I hear a loud(ish) click from the back of the computer. Same sort of noise as when you turn on a light switch, maybe a little sharper.
At first I thought it might be the speakers, but not so sure. Anyone else have this? It might just be hardware turning off
I have had this problem for a while. I used to have Vista installed on my 1420, it had taken me a long time to find a 64bit driver for the ALPS touchpad that featured middle click (when you click both buttons, it registers as a middle click).
Now, I am on Windows 7, all Vista 64 bit drivers for the ALPS work with Windows 7, but I am having trouble finding the driver that I had used with Vista64 that allowed me to use middle click.
I have searched on Dell's driver page and literally installed almost every driver they have for ALPS touchpads. Almost all of them have the ability to use the feature middle click, but they never work. I was wondering if there are any 1420 owners out there that have, or know where one could find a 64 bit driver that allows me to use middle click?
I have recently been hearing a random "Click" from the hard drive, however it is not a constant click, and is not a problem that CHKDSK has picked up on, as I ran it several times and it told me the HDD was fine.
The click can be described as the sound you might hear when pushing in a CD/DVD Tray on a drive that doesn't have the motor that automatically pulls it in. so that "click" noise when it is being locked in on some laptops.
That's the noise my Hard Drive is making. Sometimes 10 times a minute, sometimes once an hour. Very random.
The laptop is a week old, however I've been informed the HDD was changed for some reason when I bought it (ebay power seller), I am following up to find out why it was changed... and with what.
Drive is a Toshiba MK6459GSX. 640gb.
I also downloaded VirtualCloneDrive to mount an iso... and it didn't seem to do this before I did that I don't think? But it also didn't happen right after I downloaded that either sooo... thinking about trying to uninstall?
