Dell :: Unresponsive Touchpad On Inspiron 1545

May 22, 2009

I have a brand new Dell Insprion 1545. Everything has been good on it, and then all the sudden today the touchpad became totally unresponsive.

The pointer doesn't move AT ALL when the touchpad is touched. Luckily, I have a USB mouse, but having to use it kind of takes away the portability.

but it's entirely possible that I made some sort of stupid error or changed some setting to make the touchpad unresponsive.

Dell Inspiron 13 7000 :: Touchpad Becomes Unresponsive Temporarily

Jan 23, 2015

I recently bought this 2-in-1 and I love it but when using the keypad the cursor freezes temporarily in between actions so I have to resort to touch to continue. There's a lag of a few seconds (10) that is frustrating when I want to use the device as a laptop. The touchpad becomes unresponsive and I have to wait or use touch to continue...

Can this be altered in Settings or is it a bug?

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Touchpad Erratic And Unresponsive At Times

Feb 9, 2013

The touchpad on my Dell Inspiron N5110 is behaving strangely sometimes: suddenly it becomes unresponsive, cursor moves, but very hard, and after some time it just comes back to normal state.

I'm unsure whether this is the driver problem or a hardware problem. I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64.

My driver is up to date, it was downloaded from official site, but however I can't get my touchpad to work correctly consistently.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Touchpad Is So Sensitive

Dec 9, 2014

I have a Inspiron 1545 and the touchpad is so sensitive that when I am typing, if my thumb touches the pad it usually moves the curser somewhere else on the screen and I continue typing in the middle of a different sentence.Is it possible to switch off the touchpad as I use a mouse almost 100% of the time on it?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 Touchpad, Bluetooth And Blu-ray Not Working

Aug 12, 2009

Purolator dropped off the laptop today and I was quite excited. I tried the Bluray and it's definitely worth the extra money. However, some things are going wrong.

First, the damn touchpad sucks. I want Synaptics back. But at this point all I can do is BAWW about it, so whatever. But when I try to install the drivers, the cursor flips out every time I touch the pad at all. It goes all over the screen in random directions.

Second, my bluetooth doesn't seem to be working. I installed the drivers on Windows Vista and Windows 7, but neither of them yielded results. The drivers install without a problem and then tell me to enable Bluetooth using the radio button. The radio button is already enabled, as Wi-Fi is working, but there is still no Bluetooth option in the Control Panel or anywhere else for that matter.

Third, Bluray movies seem to not work with WMP. What's the problem? If it's not supported, what program do you guys suggest I use for Bluray movies?

Fourth, no matter what I do, Catalyst Control Center just won't install. The drivers are there, but CCC just won't work at all, let alone show up in my desktop context menu.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Touchpad Driver Keeps Disappearing

Apr 8, 2013

My touchpad driver keeps disappearing and its the only way I can disable the touchpad - I much prefer to use the mouse and I am a touch typist so the touchpad is a nuisance.  Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to find a win 8 touchpad driver or other way of disabling the touchpad - win 8 even on a standard laptop is magic and has improved my older laptop no end but its now annoying me due the limitation of drivers and the fact that the only way one can disable the pad is via the driver settings?

Dell :: 2 Finger Scrolling, Alps Touchpad, Inspiron 1545

Sep 17, 2009

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?

I need disabling my touch pad. I have tried everything but the right way!  Maybe it is not possible with this hunk of junk, but I can no longer tolerate it.  Inspiron 1545 running Vista? Because every answer I have gotten so far, is from people who have something else and trying to apply the directions that they use.  It doesn't work mine.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Touchpad Left Half Can Only Respond To Up / Down Finger Movements

Mar 30, 2013

Laptop 3 years old and touchpad slowly stopped responding one night.

Downloaded new driver (ALPS Touchpad v7.1007.115.102. A05) no less than 3 times and had a partial success. Now right half of touchpad is ok but left half can only respond to up/down finger movements.

Run Dell diagnostics and all hardware is ok.

Run a full antiVirus scan and ok. Laptop says new driver is ok and running ok.

Touchpad does not work in BIOS and done a full diagnostic check and said the touchpad is fine!

Use of mouse is ok so not the end of the world!

Back to factory settings?

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.

Acer :: 5315 Touchpad Is Unresponsive

Sep 23, 2009

I sorted my 5315's battery problem (it was the AC adapter), only to find that now the touchpad is quite unresponsive. It won't move smoothly, constantly stopping and starting.

I've played with all the settings I can find, and installed the latest Synaptics XP driver, but Windows seems to see it as a "PS/2 port pointing device" - the laptop doesn't have a PS/2 port, so this is obviously incorrect.

HP Pavilion G6-2123us :: Whole Touchpad Is Unresponsive

Dec 10, 2014

I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Pavilion g6-2123us I purchased in 2012.  For quite a while now I've had some annoying problems with my touchpad. And it's been getting more and more common as time continues.  When these events happen, the whole touchpad is unresponsive, including the on/off buttion, as if the device had been simply unplugged.  I have tried a wide variety of things to fix it including uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers multiple times using the most up-to-date drivers from both the HP and Synaptics websites.I have gone to the "mouse properties" in control panel and used the reset devices which worked quite well.  Some times, just putting the computer to sleep for a short period of time will do the job too.  However, as time continues, these things work less and less.  Could it just be an internal hardware issue with a loose connection?  Or, just an overtired device? I've replaced and updated the drivers multiple times, so I know that option wont do the job.

Dell Precision M4700 :: Touchpad And Keyboard Unresponsive Since Connecting Wireless Mouse

Apr 24, 2013

I have a Precision M4700, Windows 7 Ultimate on which the touchpad and keyboard nubbin have become unresponsive ever since I installed a Mircosoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000. The touchpad doesn't even appear in the device manager under the human input devices. Pro support at Dell is baffled. I've looked at the settings in the Dell Touchpad software and everything looks OK (e.g., Touchpad is not disabled). It's simply gone. It doesn't appear in the Bios or when we booted from a Windows 7 DVD.  We well probably either have to send the system back or replace the motherboard? What is to prevent it from happening again?

HP SleekBook TS 14 Display :: Windows 8 Lock Screen And Touchpad Unresponsive At Power Up

Dec 21, 2013

My Pavilion TS 14 Sleekbook running Windows 8 did two updates today that required restart for both. I don't know what the updates were, I have it set to autoload important updates. When I tried to "flip" my lock screen to enter my password to open, the screen did nothing but show energy waves around my fingertip. Used the keyboard to open to password page. Tried to pull up touch screen keyboard, nothing. Used regular keyboard to type in password and then the touchscreen works fine.

Dell :: Upgrading Inspiron 1545

Mar 23, 2009

I ordered two basic Inspiron 1545's on March 16th. $479 each on the one day special.

Dell says it will arive on April 6th. Does Dell usually take this long to deliver?

Both have Dual Core Pentiums. Can they be upgraded to Core 2 Duo later? Are the CPU's soldered on the main board?

Ram is limited to four gigabytes, even though the laptop uses a 64-bit CPU. Is this something that might be fixed in a future BIOS upgrade?

Is there any way to upgrade the onboard graphics? I found an ExpressCard chasis that has PCI express slots, but it costs over $700. I could build a PC for less than that. Do I have any other options?

Dell :: Cheapified New Inspiron 1545

Dec 22, 2008

I just looked at the pictures and specs of the new Inspiron 1525 replacement, 1545, and I couldn't believe what I have read. No HDMI port, no firewire port, only 3 USB ports, no modem, no eSATA. Also, it is 15.6" 16:9 screen, which is fine, if they offer higher than 1366x768. It is more like the 13" Inspiron than the old 1525 to me. I think Dell is going to re-align Inspiron as a cheap line like the HP Presario line. Dell Studio will compete with HP Pavilion.

Dell :: Do All Inspiron 15 (1545) Have LED Screens?

Apr 20, 2009

My question is if the early 1545's came with LED's or CCFL's? I see all the 1545's now come with only LED screens.

I ask because on the 'Dell Outlet' it doesn't state if it's a LED screen or not. It just says: "15.6 WXGA Laptop Screen Display with TrueLife"

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: How To Set Keyboard

Jan 18, 2015

I got an old laptop (dell inspiron 1545). I bought it charger and installed Windows 7.  then I discovered that he had a strange problem. As if the keyboard is not calibrated. I press a button and he thinks it's another key ... I thought it might be a hardware problem but when I plugged in a USB keyboard had the same problem and even when I uploaded the "virtual keyboard " on screen the problem continued ... I went to the site of DELL and the diagnosis tool indicated the computer is fine (their detection software glitch found in DVD-ROM but it really has nothing to do with it) I still tried to delete the drivers of the keyboard from the computer and reinstall but the problem remains you might know calibration software keyboard?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 With Bright Screen

Apr 3, 2009

I've noticed that the screen doesn't seem to be evenly lit. For example when I set the desktop background to black, it looks pretty black at the top of the screen, but as I look further down towards the bottom it turns almost medium gray/blue-ish.

I've tried all brightness, contrast and gamma settings with no luck.

Has anyone else seen this problem, and is it a reason for sending back the laptop? Or is this something "you get" for buying a lower-end laptop like the 1545?

Dell :: Spare Parts For Inspiron 1545?

Aug 11, 2009

I was interested in getting another hard drive caddy for a 1545 but looking on Dell's website by model # they do not even list the 1545 per se.

They have a choice for "15" which I assume will include anything across the board for the 15 "family" models so I looked in there but no parts like this.

I tried ebay and googling around, found several places that sell spare Dell parts, even called & spoke to one but it seems to me that (a) Dell doesn't sell a part like this separately, and (b) places that do sell these kinds of parts are salvaging them from old/dead PCs and since the 1545 is a fairly new model spare parts haven't really surfaced for it yet.

Am curious if folks here know of any decent places to find this kind of thing though, since I certainly could be overlooking something!
