Dell :: Looking For Studio 14z Alps Touchpad Driver
I went on dells website and couldn't find the studio 14z drivers.

I heard the studio 14z supports multitouch. Also it has the same touchpad as my toshiba. Currently I'm using a dell driver for my touchpad.

But I would like multitouch, so I hope to find the studio 14z driver.

Or any other dell driver that supports multitouch and is for the alps touchpad.

Dell :: New Alps Touchpad Driver From
I just installed it again (first time didn't work!) and it works now on my M1530.. and I must say its pretty awesome.. touchpad feels better than before, the scrolling functions are working fine and also the left vertical zoom in and zoom out settings.


^ Link to the driver in the above post.

Considering many XPS users are using this new driver, here is the link (same as the one in my initial post above, but posting the link here again so that people can get it right away) this is not to mean a repeat post from me..

Dell :: Model For Best Alps Touchpad Driver?
Does anyone know what the most modern DELL system is that has the best Alps driver support for features such as tapping and scrolling?

The drivers I have for my Alps touchpad from another manufacturer do not have any support for things such as Browser back-button or continuous scrolling (by leaving your finger at the edge of the touchpad after moving across it).

Dell :: Studio 1735 Touchpad- Synaptics Or Alps?
My touch pad driver recently stopped working the other day. I had not noticed because I always use my VX Nano, but I was out of the house with the laptop for once and had no pointing device when I booted up.

I re-downloaded the Synaptics driver that I had installed previously, but it didn't work. I had to install the Dell driver to get it to work, but on install I noticed it saying it was an Alps, not a Synaptics.

What gives with this? I even remember seeing other posts on here saying to forgo the Dell driver when installing windows and to use the Synaptics driver............................

Dell :: {lock Up Frequently} All Driver For Studio Xps 1340 Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
I use studio XPS 1340 with specifications:

Intel Core 2 Duo processor P8600
4gb ddr 3
320 gb hardrive
NVidia GeForce 9400 M graphics
wireless and bluetooth mini 1515

I've upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 ultimate

but hang / lock ups occur more often when I'm in windows 7

I had to upgrade to bios A11 and then lock up the place never before (in windows vista, when the battery is between 60-82%, the computer is slow and cpu usage is always 100%). then I change the bios to the A6, A7 to try whether permanent freeze. and the fact remains there lock up.

Dell :: 1420 64 Bit Touchpad Driver Middle Click
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?

Dell :: Studio 1537 Permanent Marks Behind The Display & Touchpad Freezing
I've had a Dell Studio 1537 P8400 @ 2.26 GHz with 3 GB ram, Vista 32-bit OS since December last year, and only in the past couple of months have i had a few problems, much to my disappointment that Dell hasn't increased their quality..

I've noticed a little "blemish" behind the screen, like a little cluster of dust 0.5mm in diameter, but its BEHIND the text and graphics...quite strange but such a pain as its in the middle-left of the screen..there's also another, half the size right up the top..

Dell :: 2 Finger Scrolling, Alps Touchpad, Inspiron 1545
I recently bought an Inspiron 1545 and absolutely cannot stand not being able to 2-finger scroll. The "side pad" function works poorly at best, and is so undependable that I am resorted to using a mouse whenever possible.

How on earth can I get my Inspiron 1545 with an Alps touchpad to have 2 finger scrolling similar to Mac systems? Is it even possible?

Dell :: HOW TO: ALPS Touchpad With Circle Scroll And Back And Forward In Firefox
I have been looking to make my alps pad better and with some info i found on here i was able to do just that. now i have "back/forward" slide gestures and circle scrolling, in firefox! this will also enables alot more things.

first of all thanks to fonduekid for letting us know of the new drivers.
and to SpotMe for the regedit info.

to start off go HERE, and download that driver.

Install, restart.

after windows restarts run regedit
with in that folder look for "UseCustomGUI"
double click and change the value data to "0"
close regedit

open mouse properties and you will have all the features unlocked. circle scrolling are within the dell tab and the back/forward is under gestures tab.

Unfortunately Alps still will not recognize Firefox. To be able to use the "back and forward" slide gesture you will have to go here and download a firefox addon called nightly tester tools.

once installed, with in firefox go to tools>addons and click on options for Nightly tester tools.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Bluetooth Driver (Windows 7 32-bit)
Dell XPS M1530 is running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. The only thing that I can't get to work is the Bluetooth.

Before (with Windows Vista), I was able to connect my Dell 968w printer and Blackberry Tour to my laptop via Bluetooth with no problem.

Now when I try to print with my printer or send files to my Blackberry via Bluetooth,

it doesn't work. I've looked everywhere but I can't find the right fix. I'm guessing that maybe I need to update my Bluetooth driver, but I can't seem to find the right driver for Windows 7 32-bit

Dell :: Best Driver For Studio Xps 13 (Win 7 64 Bit)
Has anyone any recommendations on which driver to use on the studio xps 13. I tried to play fallout 3 with EVERYTHING turned off and set to the lowest resolution and it plays sooo slow.

I had a macbook 2ghz with a geforce 9400 card before I went to the XPS and still managed to play it at 1280x800 on medium settings.

I checked out a few reviews of the card and playing at these settings is way achievable but it seems like im having a driver issue?

Dell :: Studio 1537 And Windows 7
Did a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit on a Studio 1537 and have a few questions. First off is how do I get the Dell backup software installed? My previous OS was Vista 32 bit so as I'm running a 64 bit os the disks that originally came with my computer probably won't be of any use.

I also require the Dell webcam software program. S Dell has a site where you can download this software but like a number of pages on Dell's site, it doesn't seem to work, does not recognize my service tag..

I also need software for the fingerprint reader. I found the driver for it, Authentec Inc but for some reason I can't find my previous software, Digital Persona Fingerprint Software.

Let me correct that, I did find it on their website but for some reason the program never fully installs itself. It says that it's now preparing to enrolling process but never does

Dell :: E4300 Alps Alternative Mouse Driver/Software?
The E4300 uses the Dell Touchpad driver and I think it feels very buggy.
It looks like the Dell uses an Alps hardware

This is probably the first time where I'm quite annoyed by a touchpad/buttons. The touchpad buttons do not always respond immediately, sometimes requiring two presses to click.

And sometimes, when I'm using the touchpad, it will automatically click on a link I didn't intend to.

I know this seems minor, but it's quite annoying at times. I almost returned the laptop because of it, but now I'm trying to live with it but it would be most helpful if there was an alternative.

Dell :: Will Me Studio 17 Run Better And Faster With Windows 7 64-bit?
I am almost hesitant to even bother with installing Windows 7 because #1. I use "tethering" to my Sprint 3G cell phone to use broadband data everywhere, not sure if that will work in W7.

Also should I do an "in place installation" over top of Vista 64-bit to Windows 7 64-bit.

or do a complete reformat install to Windows 7 which I imagine would be a driver hassle.

CPU wise I think I am covered a dual core T9400 2.53Ghz with 6MB cache and 1066Mhz FSB. 4GB RAM.

A few things to ask as I'm desperate

What can I do to make this work ?

Do I have to format my comp for this to work or can I just update over the 32-bit installation

OR can I just install on a partition ?

Is a Win7 driver available from Dell at this point or does the corresponding Vista driver work perfectly?

Dell :: Touchpad Freezing Lessened With Toshiba Driver
I've had problems with my M4400's Alps touchpad sporadically freezing/locking up, ever since I received it a week ago. I saw the same problems in Windows XP, Vista, and in Windows 7. I did some searching around and found others also reporting problems. I was about ready to return my laptop (instead of submitting to a potential troubleshooting quagmire), but I found one suggestion that seemed worth trying.

I removed the Dell touchpad drivers (Driver Version:, Driver Date: 12/21/2008) and installed one from Toshiba's web site (Driver Version: 7.2.303.107, Driver Date: 9/19/2008). After installing the Toshiba driver, I disabled all of the touchpad "extras", including browser support, scrolling, tapping, and inertial movement. It seems to have lessened the sporadic freezing (the jury is still out on whether it improved the input lag). I have had one freezing/tracking problem since installing the Toshiba driver, but overall it seems improved over the Dell driver. I'd be very interested in knowing if it helps anyone else also having problems with their touchpad freezing up.
