Dell :: Studio 15 Touchpad Button Depressed

May 26, 2010

Is there a way to "re-cushion" or do something to make the "press" of the button more with a nice, comfortable, normal distance press versus a small dull short distance press.

Basically my left touchpad button has worn down and isn't as "springy" as my right touchpad button which acts like new due to relatively less use.

If I told suppot at dell that the button was like this do you think they would repair it and if so how would they do it?

Do they have to remove the whole plate around the keyboard or something? Because that looks really set in.

Dell :: Collapsed Left Mouse Button On M1530 Touchpad

Apr 17, 2010

I have a collapsed left mouse button on my m1530 touchpad. The button still works but does not return to its original position so it is most likely the return spring (or whatever it is) that is broken.

The laptop is out of warranty so I'm looking for a way to fix this myself. I've tried searching for this part but with no success,

and I can't find any pictures of this part to tell whether I can use some other substitute.

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Left Touchpad Button Double Clicks

When I depress the left button on the touchpad it "single clicks".  When I release pressure from that button there is another "single click".  I have looked at the Mouse settings and I do not see an option for this.

Sony :: Vaio Touchpad Button Issue!

Mar 4, 2010

I bought a Sony Vaio VGN-FW51MF about a month ago with Windows 7 and its developed a weird fault both the touchpad buttons don't work except for being able to select one of the quicklaunch icons,

no other icons respond to either buttons either single or double click, I can use the click on the touchpad itself to get around but this has only happened in the last couple of days,

I've tried reinstalling the driver, system restore and even removing the battery for 10 seconds but they still don't work and under the settings they are configured correctly

Sony :: Loose Touchpad Button On UK Vaio CR31

Oct 16, 2009

My Vaio is just out of warranty and it's always had a bit of a clicky odd left-button.

I've noticed that it is gradually getting worse so I'm expecting it to break soon. I should have had it done while the computer was in warranty, but I've heard bad things about their service centre, and they'd probably have charged me for the repair anyway. I did ask them about it toward the end of the warranty period and they wanted me to email them Admin passwords and then pick up the computer for an undisclosed period. I just didn't fancy it - my fault.

Anyway, I have several friends at work who are IT technicians and one of them will have a look. I haven;t found a service manual for the CR series yet, but I'm assuming the buttons are part of the mount for the trackpad and can either be replaced individually or the mount (or pad) can be replaced.

It's just over a year old and I'm thinking about boosting the RAM, HD and upgrading to W7, but on the other hand, I'm not convinced the machine is going to survive another 2-3 years...

Dell XPS 15 :: Touchpad Left Button Only Work If Pressed 2 To 3 Times And Battery Failure Message

Mar 23, 2013

Using an XPS15. My left touchpad button has some problems. It seems to only work if it's pressed 2-3 times, or if you push it down hard...

Could this be related to any settings / firmware? - I think it's more likely that's it's probably failing and needs to be replaced?

I have a permanent battery failure message...

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Windows 8 - Both Mouse And Touchpad Operate Cursor - Disable Button Inactive

Apr 15, 2013

I wish to disable the touch pad on my Inspiron 1545 with Windows 8.. I have a Logitech wireless mouse.  Currently both the mouse and the touch pad operate the curser.  I want to only use the mouse. In Windows 7 the default was mouse only as soon as the wireless interface was installed. This is not the case with Windows 8.

I've been told to go to the Device driver and select the touch pad under Mouse and other pointers.  The touch pad is not listed. I've tried disabling the PC Mouse compatible but the disable button is inactive.

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: SL510 Touchpad Displays A Button Not Arrow - How To Change It

Jan 3, 2012

Just got a Thinkpad SL510 2847 D2U, Windows 7 Prof.(64 bit).   

Often when I touch the Touchpad I see the arrow on screen change to a "button" being displayed.  And the button is not like using the arrow.  Very difficult to work with it.  So I keep moving around Touchpad to get rid of the "button" and return to arrow.

How to rid of this "button" action?  Or what am I doing to cause it? I believe I have changed the sensitivity of the touchpad.  I'll check again.

Dell :: Studio 1535 Eject Button

Apr 15, 2009

Recently (as in, the past couple of months), my touch-sensitive media panel has been having some issues above and beyond the common complaints of the sticking eject button. Don't get me wrong, it still does that, but it adds something new to the mix:

More often than not, the eject button does not function at all, even after it unsticks itself.

Once I boot up, it sticks like normal until I boot into Windows, then attempts to eject about 10 times, and then stops. However, most of the time, it will no longer eject when pressed after this. Touching the button will cause it to illuminate like usual, but the DVD drive does not respond, regardless of whether there's a disk in the drive or not.

Sometimes, it works just fine for hours on end, ejecting every time I press the button. Sometimes it starts out working, but I'll come back to it half an hour later and it will no longer function.

Also worth noting is that when the capacitive eject button does not function, neither does the Fn+F10 keyboard shortcut.

I don't believe it's an issue with the DVD drive itself, as I can still eject via software while this happens, by going to My Computer, right clicking the drive and selecting "Eject" (although this occasionally causes an instant Blue Screen of Death).

However, I don't believe it's a touch panel issue either, because I've had the entire panel and ribbon cable replaced by Dell, and there was no difference. Also, all the other buttons (volume, playback controls) work perfectly when the eject is not sticking.

I also doubt it's a keyboard issue, because this started happening with my old keyboard, which I later replaced with my current backlit keyboard, but the Fn+F10 shortcut still does not work when the eject button does not work.

With all this, it left me to believe that the only thing it could be is software, so I completely reformatted the hard drive, left no partitions intact, not even the Dell Recovery partition, and re-installed Windows Vista 64-bit from scratch, but as luck would have it, it was doing exactly the same thing within 30 minutes of loading Windows for the first time.

I am really out of ideas here. I just can't think of anything else that could possibly be causing this, unless it's an issue with the DVD drive itself, which as I said earlier, is unlikely because ejecting via software works. Also, Dell refuses to replace the DVD drive anyway after I sent them basically this exact same message, because they "do not believe that there is a problem with the DVD drive".

Any ideas on why this might be happening? If it were just the regular sticky eject button, I would not be bothered as long as it worked as normal once it stopped sticking, but this is not the case.

Dell :: Studio 1745 Eject Button Not Working

Jan 1, 2010

1. Eject Button - I can't get either the eject button (near F12 key), or the touch eject button (that lights up) to eject any CD's. I have to go into My Computer, and right click ...and then eject it that way. Anyone know of a way to get the eject buttons to work? Should be able to use one of the eject buttons.

Note: I did try the holding the power button if for 30 seconds, and then rebooted. This didn't work for me.

2. Brightness - what FN + ? key adjusts the brightness of the screen? When the AC cord is plugged in, it's bright. When I disconnect it, it dims. I'd like to adjust the brightness to where the screen is the same brightness when it's on either AC or Battery.

Dell :: Remapping MediaDirect Button [ Studio 17 TouchButton]

Apr 7, 2010

I know this has been covered a billion times but a lot of the posts I am reading are ancient.

What is the best / latest method of remapping the Dell Media Direct button on my Dell Studio 17 (touch button).

I would like it to open something else.... e.g. itunes...

Could I assign the button to perform a task? e.g. defrag C drive or am I being a little too adventurous?

Dell :: Studio 1555 Eject Button No Longer Working?

Dec 10, 2009

I've had my Studio 1555 for awhile now, and all is has been pretty fine. However, I just noticed that my eject button for the disc drive has stopped working. I rarely use it, but I have used it before.

I upgraded my bios today from A06 to A08 and went to install my new bluetooth mouse, and the eject button just does not respond at all. I can eject the disc from my computer > right clicking the drive and selecting "eject" so it's definitely the button.

I'm not sure if this is related to the bios upgrade or something else.. Computer spec's are in my signature and I'm running Windows 7 Professional, clean install.

Dell :: Studio 1535 Media Direct Button Going Off Randomly

Jan 22, 2009

I'm new here, so I apologize if I'm not doing this right or if this has been addressed.

I recieved a new Studio 1535 for Christmas. It was purchased on Thanksgiving Day so its past the 21 days. Everything was working great, but all of a sudden, randomly the eject button started lighting up and trying to eject a cd.

This did it for a little while, my sister has a MAC and says her's does the same thing. It was my first time with a slot loading cd I took her word for it.

Then it kept happening. Next, the volume button would light up..raise the volume up all the way on the screen and stay there. I would manually try to lower it, and it wouldn't let me

Dell Studio 15 :: Jammed Touch Sensitive Eject Button?

Aug 3, 2008

The touch sensitive eject button on my new Studio 15 laptop appears to be stuck on. When I reboot the laptop, the media control lights flash back and forth as normal. However, the CD drive immediately ejects and the eject button light stays permanently on. This all happens the second the laptop comes on - long before it boots into Vista. This makes me suspect a hardware rather than software issue.
None of the other touch sensitive media controls work.
I've tried cleaning the button, checking for dirt under and on the button and rebooting the laptop. I also rested it overnight.
I only got the laptop on Friday.

Dell :: Studio 1558 Left Touch Pad Button Not Working?

Jan 31, 2015

I have a dell Studio 1558 laptop. I'm extremely careful not to have liquids anywhere near my keyboard.  However I was drinking tea and felt I was far enough back that liquids should not even reach the laptop. I was probably about a foot back. Well one of my cats nudged my arm and hit it with enough force that a few drops hit the touch pad.  I cleaned it up.  This morning I turn my laptop on and now my left touch pad button does not work. I figured that I probably needed to clean it. So I pried the button off gently.  And used a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and cleaned it off. When I pried it up it didn't look really dirty at all. There was no residue on the inside that I could see.  I put the button back on, and it still doesn't work.  So now I'm wondering if enough got inside to actually cause damage or if it's just coincidental that the button stopped working at the same time?  I used it all the time for copying stuff and scrolling. I can use all the other buttons and scroll without using it.

Should the cleaning underneath have cured it if it was the liquid? If the liquid got past the underneath of the key itself then it should have affected the whole key pad not just one key, right?

2.the fans run and the computer makes its usual whirring noises as it would normally do whilst booting up.

3.the screen however remains completely inactive. As if the laptop is off.

I have turned off and on again and connected an HDMI cable to an external screen but there is no signal.

Dell :: XPS 1340 Volume Control Button/missing WIFI Button

Ok after 3 days of using the 1340 I just realized the button on the top panel that you can use to increase/decrease volume stopped working. I had updated the latest drivers from Dell site but not sure if that is the reason.

Also non of the other buttons that are for DVD work either. And I know they were working when I got the laptop and only thing I have done is update with latest drivers.

Dell Studio 1558 :: Not Booting / Battery Status Light Keeps On Blinking When Power Button Pressed

Jan 10, 2015

I have a Dell Studio 1558 laptop which is currently four years old and out of warranty.

Currently, with or without the battery with AC adapter connected when I press the power button, the power light does not light up but the battery status light keeps on blinking until the power button is pressed. I don't see any boot up screen or hear any sound of CPU fan running in the mean time. Basically, it does not start at all.

I recently got new dell authorized battery as a replacement for laptop fearing that could be source of problem. However, the new battery does no good. I checked the battery health and status and its fine.

Before this issue the laptop would start and immediately on boot screen it would shut down. So, I got it fixed from a repair service center who cleaned up the clogged cpu fan. It worked fine for two days and then the issue resurfaced.

Now, it does not start at all. I even checked with another adapter and also changed the CMOS battery (as date and time kept changing on every boot) but the issue still remains.

Also tried removing and reconnecting the RAMs one after another and then trying to boot. Also tried draining the static charge if any after removing the battery and adapter and then holding the power button for 50 seconds. Reconnecting with ac adapter with or without battery then also does not start the system.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Touchpad

I recently ordered a SXPS 16 and have a potentially silly question about the touchpad.

For when I want to play a game and need to use a USB mouse is there a way to disable the touchpad like I can with my current ASUS G2S laptop?

Nothing is more annoying when trying to play a game and having inadvertant mouse clicks and movement because I can't or forgot to disable the touchpad while using a mouse.
