Dell :: External Bluetooth Mouse And Touchpad Setting

Mar 27, 2009

I noticed this problem with my studio 1537, I usually use a external bluetooth mouse at home, but I don't bring it to school. When I do use the mouse I disable the mouse touchpad.

However the problem is that if i kept the mouse on and connected and allow the laptop to sleep, when I turn it on the next day at school I don't have mine external mouse with me and the touchpad is still disabled, which I thought it would have automatically enable itself since it doesn't detect an external mouse.

I was just wondering if anyone does this and might have already figured out a way to solve the problem. So far the only way I can fix this problem at school without using external mouse is to restart the laptop all over after I wake it up from sleep first.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: No Option To Disable Touchpad When External Mouse Is Connected To T440p

Nov 8, 2014

New ThinkPad T440p and the first issue I encountered is there is no option to disable the touchpad when an external mouse is detected. I don't want to do it via the bios or some other hack as I use the touchpad when it is not convenient to use an external mouse. So it should be able to do the switching as needed, this is a simple feature that other manufacturers have had for years and years. 
 
I already upgrade the UltraNav Driver to the latest v18.0.7.57 and that didn’t present a solution. I am running Windows 7 SP1 - 64bit.

HP Envy 15-u011dx Display :: Setting Up Multiple External Monitors?

Jan 2, 2015

recently purchased an HP ENVY x360 - 15-u011dx Touch Laptop. Try to set up two external monitors using an HDMI splitter. I can "extend" the desktop, but both screens are showing the same image, which isn't what I want. Can i set up two external monitors with this laptop using a splitter (this was what I was told would work when I purchased the unit along with the two monitors.)  Previous laptops had HDMI and VGA ports allowing for two monitors.  This laptop (as well as most newer ones) no longer have a VGA port.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z710 - Touchpad On / Off Setting

Mar 13, 2014

The touchpad on/off function does not persist through system lock/unlock. For instance, with the touchpad disabled, locking my computer will re-enable the touchpad (as will signing back in to my computer account if I take the trouble to disable the touchpad before entering my password).
 
I permenantly use an external mouse, want to leave my touchpad disabled as it interferes with typing. Thus, I see this as a bug. Is there any way to change this behavior short of a bug report? Perhaps some buried setting?
 
Running Win 8.1, user is account password protected, but not linked to a Windows live account.
 
Edit: Laptop has a Synaptics touchpad.
 
Solution: Solved by going into Control Panel -> Mouse Settings -> Change Mouse settings -> Device Settings -> Settings (Device needs to be enabled for this to be accessible) -> Advance Tab ->  Touchpad Status
 
Under touchpad status, setting was changed to 'keep previous enable/disable status'.

Acer :: How To Enable Bluetooth On D150 Without External Bluetooth Button Under LED

Aug 12, 2009

I have finally tested the Acer Empowering Technology software on my Acer D150.

Great news, the software works to enable/disable the Bluetooth module on the netbook without physically pressing the button. This is great for people like me that do not have the button on top to push the button inside. There are two software needed for people to get this running on the D150. First is the required Acer Empowering Framework software and the second is the Acer ePower Management. Once both software are installed on the system, the setting to enable/disable the Bluetooth module is in the ePower Management.

Power profiles within windows will probably be reset to default, so those would have to be readjusted if a user changed them. I am actually running Windows Vista on my Acer D150 with the Acer Empowering Technology software for Vista. I am not 100% sure if the software will also work on XP, but from the notebookreview forums, I believe it should work just as fine (but more options on other Empowering Technology software).

(in XP, the driver also works, but need XP edition, not vista editon).

My brother gave me an older Dell laptop (about 3 yrs old I think) that had a dead battery, broken screen, dead touch pad, and other misc problems.

Dell :: Bluetooth Mouse

Jun 11, 2009

So I dropped the extra 40 something for the bluetooth capability in my 1640, thinking it would be a fantastic way to save a usb port and add convenience for an external mouse.

Problem is, I've been to several futureshops, bestbuys, and londondrugs and none of them (okay, there was ONE) have bluetooth mice...

Where would a good place to look be, a place I can actually go in and get a feel (even if only through clear plastic) of the mouse (rather than online like NCIX or Newegg).

Dell :: Vista 64 Mouse Touchpad

Mar 19, 2009

I just upgraded from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Vista (it was free). The onboard mouse buttons and touchpad work fine in Vista 64. My problem is that I always use an external mouse. When I'm typing and my palm hits the touchpad my cursor moves. In Vista 32 bit I could set the onboard mouse buttons and trackpad to switch off in the Dell touchpad driver whenever an external mouse is plugged in. There is no 64 bit Vista driver to download from Dell. How do I turn this touchpad off?

Dell :: 370 Bluetooth Module + BT Travel Mouse

Jul 22, 2009

I wanted to add Bluetooth to my laptop so that I could get a wireless mouse (and down the road, a wireless keyboard as well). I know I could have went with some sort of RF wireless, but I just know that somewhere down the line I would end up losing the dongle -- so BT was the best bet!

Made my purchase 7/21 early in the AM, and my items arrived on 7/22 in the afternoon! I live in Indy, and the items came from near Dayton, Ohio... but still, talk about free shipping! I also purchased a new SwissGear/Wenger backpack, and that shipped separately from South Bend, Indiana -- and also arrived today on 7/22.

Went to install the BT module in my laptop, and my worst fear was true -- Dell sent me the wrong screws! There were many reviews on the Dell site about them sending out the wrong screws, and I was afraid it would happen, and unfortunately it did. I went through all my screws, and could not find anything that would fit... so, so that I could test the module I temporarily left it installed without being screwed it. The install was uber-easy, connect up the blue antenna, and done!

I really like this travel mouse, as well. I put some rechargeable batteries in it which I hope will help it last for quite a while. Its slightly larger than my previous wired travel mouse (from Logitech), but I like that. It isnt anywhere near being a full-size mouse, but its a good size for me. A little heavy with two AA batteries in it, but not terrible or anything. I'd might try to find a little pouch to stuff it in when taking it with me, for a little extra scratch-protection and what-not. Oh, I got the matte black version, cuz I hate glossy things that show fingerprints

I chatted with Dell tonight, and they are "supposedly" sending me the proper screws... in 3-5 business days. I tried to get them to upgrade that to overnight shipping so I would definitely have them this week, but they absolutely refused to do that. So now I need to shut the laptop back down and remove the BT card because I don't like the idea of it just dangling in there not being screwed down.

Anyway, thats my experience. My first attempt at an upgrade to my Studio 15 (1537). Next will be a back-lit keyboard, when the finances are not so ... strained After that, maybe a bluetooth keyboard if I can find a decent one that isn't like a bajillion dollars

Apple :: MacBook Air As Main Computer With External Monitor /keyboard/mouse

Mar 1, 2009

I'm thinking on using my MBA as my main computer, therefore I'm considering buying the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and the Mighty Mouse and hooking up to my HP Monitor for when I'm at my desk for long periods.

It's very easy to hook up ... this MBA seems quick enough and a usb hub can be added if need be ... why not use it as a main pc?

Further, the only windows app I'm really going to miss is Publisher, I'm thinking on being daring and installing Vista on the Mac with Bootcamp and then run Publisher in Windows. If that worked well I could get rid of the T500... (I have a desktop I could use for heavier app's, movie/music downloading) ...

Seems like a lot of work for such a small little machine, lol, can it handle it? Has anyone there done this before with success?

Dell Latitude D630 :: Cannot Register Microsoft Mouse With Bluetooth

Mar 13, 2009

I've had this problem for quite a while.  I'm unable to register Microsoft mice with the bluetooth on my Latitude D630.

I originally thought it was the mouse I purchased ... but the mouse worked fine when I used the bluetooth adapter that it shipped with.

I recently purchased a MS Presenter Mouse 8000 and tried to register it with the bluetooth stack.  Every time I try I get a "Registration Failed" message.

The software can see the mouse ... and I hear the standard "Registering hardware" chimes, but then I get the "Registration failed" message.

I'm running "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba" version 4.31.02.6(D).

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 5547 :: Touchpad Mouse Moving Erratically

I recently bought a Dell Inspiron 5547 about 2 weeks ago. I've noticed a problem with the touchpad. My mouse sometimes moves erratically by itself. I'm not sure if this is a windows 8.1 issue, a hardware issue or driver issue. I have noticed that closing the monitor and then opening it again usually stops the mouse the issue temporarily.

Dell Inspiron 7347 :: Mouse On Touchpad Hangs Up Intermittently

Jan 5, 2015

I have had my Inspiron 7347 for a few days.  When operating on the battery, the touchpad exhibits some quirks that make this P:C extremely hard to use as a portable laptop.

The mouse on the touchpad hangs up intermittently, sometimes for several seconds.  This erratic behavior makes using the mouse terribly difficult.

When scrolling using the mouse on a vertical scroll bar, the right click menu for the desktop keeps popping up.  I must move the mouse away from the scroll bar, left click to get rid of the right click menu, and return the mouse to the scroll bar.  Sometimes this behavior is constant when scrolling through a long page, making it impossible to use the mouse to scroll.
