Gestures On Touchpad Not Working On Recently Updated Dell Inspiron 3537 Laptop
Aug 6, 2015
I have dell Inspiron 3537 Laptop recently update in windows 10 before it was using windows 8.1 that time my laptop gesture touch pad was working when I scroll in our touch pad with 2 finger it was working but now is not working. My touch pad driver already installed and update.
just today my touchpad on my Asus laptop was working perfectly and for some reason stopped working. I can move the cursor with it and perform dragging gesture but two finger gestures aren't working, all drivers are installed so i don't know what to do...
I am getting my 3 year old Dell Vostro V131 laptop up and running. I bought Windows 10, installed it and configured everything without too much of a problem - except for this little issue.
Just as the OS installed, the touchpad just allowed me to move the cursor and tap to click - not much of a surprise, as it ran on stock Windows drivers. I got the touchpad drivers for my laptop model from Dell's site (was labeled as a Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 driver, but there was none for 10, so I just used that). The scroll and zoom gestures worked fine in file explorer, MS Office, Skype, Spotify, Chrome, control panel and desktop. However, there is no reaction from Edge, modern/metro apps (like settings, weather) and the start menu!
I'm pretty much stuck right now. Here are the things I tried:
1. Configuring the touchpad in Windows settings - not possible, as the OS doesn't classify my touchpad as a "precision touchpad", and therefore doesn't allow to configure any gestures.
2. Installing a driver from Synaptics' website (obviously with the Dell one uninstalled) - doable, but it doesn't change anything at all; the touchpad is still listed as "PS/2 pointing device" in the device manager, no gestures are available, no driver is listed in "Programs and features", and no icon is to be seen in the app tray.
3. Same as 2, but first uninstalling the generic driver via device manager - not effective, as the driver uninstall requires a restart, and after the restart Windows installs the generic driver back.
What I thought about: This is obviously Microsoft's fault, as only their new, Windows-10-modern-interface-touch-controllable-minimalistic-cool-looking software faces this issue. Could I, by any chance, fool Windows 10 into thinking i have a "precision touchpad"? Registry editing comes to my mind, but I have no clue how to find such an entry if it exists.
I own a Dell Inspiron N5547, updated from W8.1 to W10 Pro a few days back. The Dell Touchpad came installed with the upgrade, and for the first 2 days, all the gestures were working perfectly. On the third day, the three finger scroll up (for task view) stopped working and invokes Cortana instead. I went on the Dell Touchpad program and tried to untick the three finger tap for Cortana, but to no avail. Its really annoying, I tried to restart my latpop but faced the same problem.
I tried to search for solutions, one included uninstalling the Dell Touchpad from Programs and Features, then downloading the latest version from the Dell website. I did so, and installed it again, and once again for the first day the three finger scroll was working perfectly, but when I woke up the next morning, it started invoking Cortana again.
I have been using this version of windows 10 from last 1 month. I installed all the drivers and everything was working just fine. From last few days my wifi driver isn't responding. I tried reinstalling the driver but the problem still exists.
I can connect through the Ethernet cable and the Bluetooth driver is also working. Only the wifi driver has stopped.
Just installed win10 in the afternoon and so far enjoying the experience. then again there are a few things I need to get used to, but the one thing I have been getting really annoyed with is the trackpad gestures.
I own a dell xps 15 and was running windows 7 earlier. one gesture on the trackpad that I mostly used was the a horizontal 3 finger swipe to navigate front or back in an app/browser. Since I have installed win10 it seems this gesture is to switch between apps.
I hope you can see how this can get really annoying. I just wanted to know if there is anyway I can configure/disable the default windows trackpad gestures.
I had been under the impression that if you had a PC with UEFI (instead of the legacy BIOS), you couldn't boot from a CD or DVD drive. Having just gotten my first PC with UEFI, I was delighted to find this Dell article on how to do it here:
I followed that procedure on my new Dell Inspiron 15 5559 laptop, and booted Linux Mint successfully from the DVD I have it on. One of the considerations is that you have to disable "secure boot". Not ever having had that before, I didn't hesitate to do that. I imagine that would be a handy feature if you were worried about boot sector viruses, but I've never seen but one instance of one in 35 years of working with PCs, and that was on a neighbor's PC. I also noticed that booting was considerably faster.
I've just done a clean install of W10 on my Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop. I turned off the laptop last night when the battery was about half discharged.
I tried turning on the laptop today after it had been off 18 hours and it was completely dead - there was no response to the power on button and no charging light despite the charger outputting the correct voltage.
I read online about removing the battery so I did this. I removed the battery, pressed the power button for 60s then plugged in the power lead and hey presto the laptop started! I then put the battery back in and started W10 fine. The battery showed 56% charge so the battery wasn't flat.
I can only think there was a poor battery connection which prevented the laptop starting and removing and replacing the battery cured this.
As the title says how exactly do you achieve this?
I have an ISO Ran RUFUS 2.6 GPT Partition Scheme for UEFI Fat 32 8192 Default X Quick Format X Create a bootable disk using X Create Extended label and Icon Files
so the next part is the Kicker Dell did a number on their Bios and rather than using standard logic as we have done so many years just setting the boot order to "Boot USB" first, you "Only" have the option to create a "Boot Program"!!! so you select your USB Drive then which ever file you want it to boot I'm Assuming? So I tried selecting Setup, bootmgr.efi, and autorun with no results!
I get the secured boot error crap, turn that off and I get Legacy BIOS (that defeats the entire point) What the hell happened to Win95 Boot Discs and FDISK?
I am so frustrated with this garbage, I found out the hard way with Windows 10 and trying to nuke the SSD and put a clean install of 8.1 on it.
I recently upgraded my Dell 2320 Inspiron all in one to Windows 10 and since doing so I am greeted with the limited internet connection problem (wifi). I have tried the TCIP reset suggested in another forum I read however this has not resolved the issue. What I can do as this is my home office computer.
I have an Advent Monza S200 laptop. I've recently upgraded to Windows 10. Before I upgraded my touch pad was working fine, but after the upgrade my touch pad stopped working.
Once my laptop is turned on, the cursor is not visable on the screen, the touch pad is unresponsive too. If I plug in an external mouse, the cursor re-appears and I can control my computer that way, although as soon as I un-connect my external mouse the cursor stays on the screen but I can't control it with the touch pad.
I can un-install the touch pad drivers, then re-install them from the Advent webpage and the touch pad will work perfectly until I turn my laptop off, then when I switch my laptop back on, I'm back to square one again and can't do anything unless I plug in my external mouse.
I've tried asking on the Advent forums but they don't seem to have had any traffic since early 2013.
I have a relatively new Dell Inspiron 7000 series (7548). Installed Windows 10 and about 15 seconds after logging in I keep getting an error message about an internal power failure. What an absolute f#$% up. I have never had a problem with the laptop. I tried the Restore System Point option but it says that there aren't any system points saved.
On my wife's AIO (Dell Inspiron One 2330) the Start menu wasn't available on her non-admin user account(but was ok on my admin user account).My XPS8100 wouldn't awaken from sleep properly (labored without real progress).I reinstalled Win10 on both PCs last night (about two hours each) and all is well. Here's the link: URL....Use the Download Tool Now button and follow the simple instructions.
After updating win 10 from 8.1, am getting the frequent pop when ever i use the touchpad. (pic attached)
1) Resinstalled driver, still popup continues 2) using autorun app, i have tried to remove the entry (It stops the popup but the Dell touchpad utility is not starting up, so I cannot use the scrolling and the gesture support) 3) Again I turned on the services from autorun, popup came again 4) Tried cleaning registry by ccleaner, still the issue persists. 5) Tried to reset windows, but tat also not happening (boot device failure)

I can tap the screen and operate scroll bars but cannot change pages or scroll by simply flicking. This seemed to begin after an update called eGalax USB touchscreen. I can't find it and the normal HID USB touchscreen device is not in my device manager, it is however in hidden devices and greyed out.
I just upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7, I have a ASUS G75vw.
Well i guess to sum it up as soon as I updated the software my audio and video playback doesn't work anymore. For example iTunes tells me "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration, Audio/Video playback might not function" how to fix it?
while working on my laptop, it suddenly goes off, and I cant get it to switch back on, so I take the battery out and after few seconds I try to switch it back on, no go, then
after a minute or so, the computer suddenly springs back to life, saying its doing a windows update,i had no notification of a windows update, so I cant understand whats going on here, and best of all , this is the second time this has happened
I can't open any photo files, it says they have the wrong file name. I had to update windows 10 because word stopped working ( I had already updated to Windows 10 from Windows 8, thinking it can't be worse than Windows 8 - but I was wrong about that.)
Word 13 stopped working a few days ago, and a computer techician tried to identify what was wrong. After checking various things he reinstalled Windows 10. Now I can't open any photo files, it says they have the wrong file name. I could always open the photos before. How can I view and edit my photos as I could before ?
Also is this problem with Word 13 continually jamming and stopping working also due to some windows 10 issue, or is it a virus ?
I went to Dell and saw that my laptop is compatible with Windows 10. It's a Dell Inspiron 3737. I thought I fixed my issue when I disabled "fast startup" in power settings. It occurs to me that some of my problems were fixed (excessive battery draining).
If I shut the lid and leave it, the next day the laptop won't turn on. I have to hold the power button down until I see the power LED flash and then I can press the button again to turn on the laptop.
I have a Dell laptop with Windows 10 on it. When it goes into sleep mode, if I swipe the touch pad within a few seconds it will come out of sleep mode. However if I'm not at the computer so that it is in sleep mode for a while, then when I swipe the touch to pad wake it up sometimes it will wake up but sometimes it won't. If it won't wake up then I have to use the power switch to shut it off and reboot it.
