Dell Inspiron 3542 :: Installed Windows 8 - Touchpad Is Not Working
Sep 16, 2014
I just purchased a new Dell inspiron 3542. it came with a preinstalled Ubuntu. touch pad was working fine. I deleted Ubuntu and installed Windows 8. Now touch pad is not working and Wifi adapter is also not working. I swear its only 7 hours when i purchased this laptop. and facing these issues.
I also tried the drivers from dell website. downloaded and installed. my win8 is 64 bits.
How to resolve it. is this issue is under warranty?
Bluetooth is not at all working on my dell inspiron 15 3000 series 3542 after i installed win 8. I downloaded several Bluetooth drivers from dell, but nothing seems to work. I Have a Bluetooth icon on my task bar but when i connect device it says"no device found."I have run many tests but no luck so provide me with correct Bluetooth software and installation instructions.

I bought an Inspiron 15 3542 laptop and it works fine; the Power button has an LED which never lights up; also, the system LED at the right bottom (front of the laptop), does not light up all the time. It only lights up in white when I start the laptop from sleep or shutdown. Is this a design flaw or is something wrong with the laptop? I have never seen the Power button LED light up, which is annoying since the keyboard area is always dark without any lights; I have a HP Pavilion which has many blue LEDs on the surface and front of the laptop, so I find it weird not to have any lights on the Dell.
i have windows 7 64bit and can't get Bluetooth to find any device have updated driver and check every thing and it's still not work, when run dell diagnostic it's say all good but can't find my phone or any other device.
Brand new laptop, received yesterday. Plugged in a USB mouse today. All was fine until I unplugged it - now the laptop's touchpad will not work, despite the fact that as far as the computer is concerned, it is enabled (have gone through control panel, touchpad controls, etc. - everything thinks the touchpad is enabled). Drivers are up to date. Mouse works fine when I plug it back in, but cannot get the touchpad functioning.
I have some problems with a new Dell laptop (bought a few weeks ago). The model is Dell 15.6'' Inspiron 3542. I've searched on google and on other forums but i didn't found something useful for my problem.
The problem is that when i turn on the laptop, running only on battery, after starting the windows, it freezes. If i turn on the laptop, with the AC adaptor plugged in, it works perfectly. But if i remove the AC adaptor, the laptop freezes after a while. If i turn off the laptop without the AC adaptor plugged in, the screen goes black but the laptop dosen't shut down completly, it freezes. And every time it freezes, the only way to shut down the laptop is to press for 5 sec the start button. I can use the laptop on battery mode, only on "Safe Mode" option of Windows.
I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits, and i installed all the drivers from Dell support site.
My Dell Inspiron 1525's touchpad no longer works. It worked fine this morning. I updated security essentials and windows and then it stopped working after updates had installed. I tried system restore and it still does not work. I can use a corded USB mouse, but I really need the touchpad.
Just got a brand new laptop, Dell Inspiron 11 3137, and updated to windows 8.1. The touchpad does not work properly now; gestures/scrolling/pointer not working. I've spent over 16 hours getting windows 8.1 installed and then troubleshooting this issue. I've contacted Dell; updated the driver from Dell, even tried installing the latest driver from Synaptic. I even tried setting the Synaptic app to run under the windows 8 version.
Touchpads have been around a long time. It's the last thing I expect not to work properly.
At this point I am ready to send the laptop back and call it quits on windows.
my laptop is Pavilion g6 Notebook PCafter i installed windows 7 i noticed that wireless not working when i press on the button its idle .. nothing happensi know i must install a driver but i realy dont know what is the right driver for my laptop
After turning on our Inspiron 17R laptop the cursor is between 2 user profiles and I can't get the cursor to move using the touchpad. I tried using the Hot Key to enable the touchpad but that didn't work.
Just installed Windows 7 64bit on my inspiron 1420 and its running fine. the only driver i'm having a hard time finding is "base system device" (location: PCI bus 3 device 1, function 3). i have no idea what it is and have no idea where to start looking for it. Dell's driver and suport website has to be one of the worst site ever cuz its soo hard to find anything. so if someone can help or have any idea i kind of need some help. and can someone show me were to get windows 7 64 bit drivers off the dell site? i'm looking to install the touch pad drivers so i can get more of the options and features.
I have inspiron 5520 and i brought new windows 8 after that I lost all the drivers and every time i try to download any driver from dell drivers it says it can't be installed because my computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements.
I have a tt series VGN-TT190 notebook and after installed windows 7 the auto dimmer, and the noise cancelling doesn't work. I called sony and they don't know how to fix it either- they told me to live with it.
Is there anyway to get the TouchPad features for Windows 8 on a XPS 15 L502x? Used them on a Windows 8 Laptop today, and i want them too! I tried installing the Dell Windows 7 Drivers, and the original Synaptics Drivers.. both didn't work really hate this touchpad and their existing drivers..
I bought a DELL Inspiron 3542 4th generation recently. there is something wrong with the battery i charged it 100% i unplugged the charger after about an hour and a half the battery was 55% and suddenly it shows a message that my battery is only 7% remaining! I don't understand why that happened my laptop still has 105 days warranty.
I am having issues with my touchpad not working, I have gone through most of the troubleshooting tips such as hitting touchpad enable/disable hotkey, turning of the laptop and holding down the power button for 15 seconds, and downloading the suggested driver. The most distressing thing is that when I go the mouse hardware/driver, the only thing that the computer is recognizing is the usb mouse I am having to use.
