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?

Dell :: M1530 Left Mouse Button Not Working

Mar 29, 2009

The left mouse button on my m1530 has taken a battering. It has gone all lop-sided, crunches every time I press it, and now doesn't work at all unless I press down on it very very hard with two fingers.

I work fast, so this is an incredibly frustrating thing to happen, as everything now takes ten times longer to do.

Dell XPS 15z :: Left Button Of Trackpad Just Stopped Working?

Mar 20, 2013

Yesterday while I was working on a spreadsheet, the left button of my trackpad on my Dell XPS 15z just mysteriously stopped working.  I assumed that maybe my system was slowing down, as I tend to multitask and often will have a LOT going on at once.  So I restarted, since it had been about a three days since my system was restarted.  Anyway, it did no good.  Still, the left button wasn't working.

So, I then pressed it SUPER hard and it started working.  Today, I noticed that it was messing up again.  However now, depressing the key good and hard doesn't seem to magically fix the situation.  Moreover, it doesn't work at all now instead of intermittent workability.

There wasn't any sort of update or anything...  I'm really confused.  Right button has no issues, but clearly I need both.  Not sure what I should do.

Dell Studio 1558 :: Screen Stays Off When Press Power Button To Turn On Laptop

Dec 6, 2014

Laptop was working fine up until yesterday. Then this happened...

1. Pressed the power button to turn on the laptop

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.

4. I turned it off and on again several times. Once it came on and worked as normal, I could access all files and backup everything.

5. This morning I turned it back on and it has done the same thing. Makes the sounds as normal but screen is inactive.

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

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.

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad U530 Touch - Backlight For Left Most CTRL Key Stopped Working And Turn Off Completely

Jul 21, 2014

Before the end of 2013 I bought an Ideapad U530 Touch for school and it's been working fine up until a few days ago when the backlight for the left most CTRL key stopped working and shut off completely. Every other key on the board is fine, except for this one. Is there any easy to fix to this problem, or do I need to send the entire computer back?

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 :: Windows 8 Pro - Eject Key Not Working

Dec 28, 2012

I recently updated my OS to Windows 8 but the Eject key on the keyboard doesn't work. I thought the problem would be solved by installing QuickSet but still the same. All other media keys (change display, wifi, battery, brightness, mute, volume etc) are working perfectly except the eject button.

Dell Studio 1558 :: Synaptic Touchpad Not Working

Jan 29, 2012

I have been using a Dell Studio 1558. However, for the last 2 days, my Dell touch-pad has not been working. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers. I have taken the drivers from the driver disks that came with my laptop as well as the drivers from the dell website.

I have also tried using system restore to roll back to a time much before the problem had started to appear. This has not resolved the problem as the touch-pad is still not working.

On checking in the Device Manager, the device is not normally visible. when all hidden devices are seen, the Dell Touch-pad icon appears with a yellow exclamation mark.

The error code shown is "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)"

I have tried to update the driver from the device properties, but i get a message that the latest driver is already installed.

I am unable to diagnose the problem.

Dell Studio 1737 :: Eject Soft Touch Button Don't Eject CD Whilst In Vista

Jan 12, 2009

I received my Dell Studio 1737 only a few hours ago and the immediate problem I've found is that Fn+F10 and the eject soft touch button don't eject a CD whilst in Vista.  They work fine in the BIOS or Diagnostics Utility but don't work when the machine boots up into Vista. 

BIOS is showing as A04 and the latest available on the Dell Drivers website is A02

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 :: 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 :: 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 N5110 :: Left-click Button Sticks

Mar 15, 2013

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.

HP ProBook G2 430 Lockups :: Trackpad Left Button Unresponsive Intermittently

Oct 19, 2014

I have a brand new ProBook 430 G2 (SKU # G6W35EA#ABB) with Windows 8.1, fully updated. I find that every 10-15 minutes, the left button on the trackpad becomes unresponsive. The trackpad still moves the mouse pointer and the right button continues to work, but the left button does not react. This lasts for several minutes, perhaps 3-4. Then the left button resumes working as if nothing had happened. Since the button resumes working, I suspect it is more likely to be a software issue with the driver or Windows 8.1.
 
I have Synaptics TouchPad driver version 18.1.8.1, the current version of the driver.
I have Windows 8.1 version 6.3.9600. 
I have Bios version HP M74 version 1.03 (07/07/2014)

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...

Acer Aspire R7-572 :: Touch Screen Will Start Registering A Click In The Very Upper Left Corner

Feb 20, 2015

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire R7-572-6423 touchscreen notebook.  It works great for the most part except for the touchscreen seems to glitch out every once in a while.  What happens is out of nowhere the touch screen will start registering a click in the very upper left corner of the screen (as seen by the Windows 8 touch visual feedback) even though I am not touching the screen.  The clicking happens very fast (several times a second) and makes the notebook unusuable.
 
I can make the clicking stop by touching and holding my finger on the screen near where the clicking is happening.  However, as soon as I lift my finger, the clicking resumes.
 
To fix the issue, I have to do a touch screen calibration (Windows settings -> Tablet PC Settings -> Calibrate -> Touch input).  However, the calibration appears to be off using this method (I cannot swipe the windows 8 bar to the right) so I then do a calibration reset (Tablet PC Settings -> Reset).  This generally resolves the issue for a while.
 
I have tried moving the screen into different positions and cleaning the screen but the issue still comes back on occasion.

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: Left Mouse Button Stay Held When Dragging On L530

Jun 24, 2014

on an L530, when i click and hold the left mouse button on the trackpoint while performing a "sweep" operation -- ie dragging out a rectangular area on the display -- the button doesn't stay held; it prematurely unclicks / releases before i lift my finger off the button.

i had this problem with the original keyboard.  i called support, they quickly shipped a replacement keyboard, and almost as quickly the problem reoccurred.

this is annoying, because i frequently perform mouse sweeps (almost exclusively in conjunction with "snipping tool" on win7).  invariably, i need to retry the sweep 2,3,4,5,6.... times before i'm successful at getting what i want.  and i'm pressing down on the button with significantly more force than should be required.

this isn't a problem that develops over time; it's there from the get-go.

i've phoned in to support again, and they're shipping me a 3rd keyboard.  sounds like a design flaw, since the same problem's shown up on 2 keyboards.  (progress has been made, however; on the original keyboard, F10 wasn't working reliably either; on the now-in-use 2nd keyboard, F10 works fine.)  hope i'm wrong about the chronic failure, and 3rd time's a charm...
