Dell vostro touchpad and Shut down problems

Dell vostro touchpad and Shut down problems
Views: 50
I have two questions. The first is the scrolls of my Dell vostro laptop touchpad are not working under Windows 7.
The second question is that I can not shut windows 7 down.
I am running Windows 7 64-Bit with Vista 32-Bit and Ubuntu on my laptop. I use EasyBCD and Neosmart to set up the triple boot.

Solution for unsupported Touchpad on Dell Vostro 1700

Solution for unsupported Touchpad on Dell Vostro 1700 Icon
I have installed Windows 7 32-bit on a Dell Vostro 1700 notebook, but I am having issues with a 'jumping cursor' (while typing, the cursor will suddenly move to another line in my text, usually the place where my mouse previously clicked).
I have read many discussions and I now know that it is to do with the mouse driver (both touchpad and USB) and that Dell does not do drivers for Windows 7 for the Vostro 1700.
I tried to just live with it for a while but I cannot work like this anymore, so I am wondering whether there is any solution, other than reverting back to Vista?
 

touchpad Dell Vostro 1700

I'm having a small inconvenience issue with my touchpad on my laptop (model and manufacturer in subject line). I cannot scroll down any screen by running my finger down the right side of the touchpad. I was wondering if there was a fix for this because the drivers from Dell will not run in Windows 7. I also would like to be able to change the functionality of my touchpad buttons (i.e. clicking both buttons to open up a new tab in internet explorer, like I can do with my Vista install on this laptop.)
 

Driver from touchpad conflits with Windows 7

Driver from touchpad conflits with Windows 7 Icon
I have just purchased a Dell computer (vostro 1320), with Windows 7. Everything was working just fine, when I started to get those blue screens errors. I seeked help from Dell, which told me to install WinDbg, to find out the problem.
After analyzing what caused the error, this program pointed the error was in a driver from Dell touchpad.
I contacted Dell, which said the problem was in the software, which was conflicting with windows, and then they told me to format the pc.
I am very reluctant in doing so, mainly because the pc is brand new, and every time I formatted my old pc, it never was the same, and the old problems always returned.
So, my question is: is there another solution for my problem? Maybe an alternative driver, which can substitute the one from Dell and does not conflict with windows!
 

Missing icon for the Dell touchpad.

Missing icon for the Dell touchpad. Icon

What happened to my Dell Touchpad Icon under Mouse Properties Normally, when I wanted to disable/enable my Dell Touchpad, I go to Start, Control Panel, Hardware, Mouse and there it was with a Big Ole Icon to click on to disable it.

It causes me so many problems when I type and I use the keyboard, never the touchpad. However, this is a borrowed computer I am on and I need to find out what happened.

The driver for the Touchpad is present under Programs and it is up to date but that dag gum Icon is no where to be found.

I ran a search for the Dell Touchpad and it can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know what happened or how I can get this Icon back where the Touchpad can easily be disabled/enabled?

 

Windows 7 Refuses to Shut Down, Sleep, Hibernate etc

Windows 7 Refuses to Shut Down, Sleep, Hibernate etc Icon

I have a Dell Vostro 3750 laptop. Recently it hasn't been shutting down. I have it connected to a Dell monitor and it has never impeded shut down. Recently I connected my Xbox 360 to the monitor's VGA port but I had to connect the audio phono cables to my sound card.

Since, I have been unable to shut down without disconnecting everything but the charger for the laptop including the monitor and the monitor's USB hub. When I try to shut down without doing this it apperrs to shut down, the monitor goes into sleep, but just as the hard drive sounds like it's stopped it kicks back into life and Windows re launches.

 

Dell Inspiron 1526 touchpad drivers and problems

Dell Inspiron 1526 touchpad drivers and problems Icon
I am running Windows 7 64 bit on my Dell Inspiron 1526. However my touchpad does not have it's same functionality. The scroll does not work and I cannot disable it. In Vista 32 my touchpad used to disable automatically when I plugged in a mouse. I found an ALPS driver (from the previous thread) that enables me to scroll without bugs but it does not let me modify my touchpad in anyway. I also found a Synaptics driver that lets me disable my touchpad manually, but it will not scroll. My touchpad is not actually recognized as a touchpad but as a "Standard Pointing Device". I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a driver that would grant me the same functionality that I had in Vista 32 or at least let my touchpad actually be recognized on my computer. It is rather annoying constantly having to switch drivers.

I have a dell latitude D630 running windows 7 and the damn thing won't vertically scroll using the touchpad. I'm confused--I've done internet searches and can't figure out if this model dell is using a synaptics or alps touchpad.

Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computers hardware Icon

Recently we have bought some Dell Vostro 3450 Laptops. While I was installing Windows 7 Enterprise edition to those laptops strange thing happened which I never came across. Message is,

"Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computers hardware" We are using Dell D630, Dell E6400, Dell E6410, Dell E4310, Dell Vostro 1520 & HP nc6220 laptops and those are never given me any error messages like this. I tried changing the SATA mode in Bios to AHCI & ATA but it was failed.
