Dell vostro touchpad and Shut down problems

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.

Dell Vostro A860 - touchpad driver
I have a problem with touchpad driver on my Laptop - Dell Vostro A860, Dell supports only Vista32 drivers - so i was thinking that i can use Compatibility Mode in Windows7. Negative !

Solution for unsupported Touchpad on Dell Vostro 1700
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
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!


Dell Inspiron 1526 touchpad drivers and problems
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.

Need Touchpad driver
I'm new to windows 7. I installed it on my Dell Inspiron e1505 32-bit. I have a question about my touchpad. I can't seem to scroll using it as I use to like I have before. I tried downloading the driver from Dell but I need to install microsoft framework 3.5 sp1. in order to get drivers from that website. Can anyone tell me how I can get the touchpad driver


Adjusting Touchpad sensitivity on Dell 11z running w7 ultimate (x64)
Did a clean install of W7 ultimate on a Dell 11z (x64) with all the updates. The touchpad cannot be adjusted. There is no property for any adjustment. Problem is when typing, the slightest brush of the touchpad causes the cursor to jump. And I mean the *slightest* touch! A mere brush of atoms on the touchpad causes the cursor jump.
The Dell site offers both Elan and Synaptics drivers. I am an experienced Synaptics user and want only the simgple single finger "right edge scroll" capabilities offered with the PS2 Compatible Mouse drivers - with touchpad adjustment capability because of the cursor jumping. But I will take any touchpad adjustment - anywhere - that will allow me to de-sensitize the touchpad. Elan drivers allow for touchpad adjustment but not the single finger scroll, instead forcing their multi-finger "gesture" control - which I think is junk. Arrrrgh!
I have read and tried many of the suggestions form Dell and Windows communities, and nothing works.


Alps Touchpad
I am currently running Windows 7 Pro on my Vostro 2510 Laptop. It's the best deal I ever got, but the touchpad is simply wretched cause its an Alps Touchpad. The drivers are simply abominations. The only gesture my touchpad driver has is Scroll.
So I looked around, and found this newer driver. It had some decent and most basic gestures, and it sufficed for my needs. However, it causes my Aero cursor to freeze up and no longer animate. This usually forces my mind to think my computer has frozen when it has not, very discontenting.
Then I had another Idea, what if there was a way to force Synaptics driver to think my Alps touchpad is a synaptics one so I can get synaptics features?


Disable tap on touch pad as a click
I am much too clumsy to deal with the fancy feature of tapping on the touchpad to cause a click. I talked to Dell support and they assured me that if I removed their Dell touchpad utility that would also disable the tapping on the touch pad feature. Well I removed their touchpad software and now just using straight Windows control of the touchpad and I am still getting random touch clicks when I don't intend them. How can I disable this annoying feature. I just want to secure the cursor with the touchpad and do with the left and right buttons. I don't want any of the fancy stuff.

Enabling the touchpad
I have a new Dell inspiron 14R with Windows 7. Somehow I disabled the touchpad and I'm not sure how to undo it. I saw a little box pop up on the right hand side of the screen that said the touchpad was now disabled. I wasn't doing anything different at the time and I was not using a wireless mouse. I've restarted the computer and its still locked.

Touchpad not working after installing a usb mouse
My touchpad stopped working after I had installed a usb mouse (and an IR remote). I searched numerous forums and tried everything out there with no success, including the following:
Tried the function key to turn touchpad on/off (the most obvious source of the problem)
tried reinstalling driver for touchpad from the manufacturer web site
removed the usb mouse and rebooted
went to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Mouse to enable touchpad - touchpad was no longer even listed
There were no problems showing up in the Device Manager
This all became a bit frustrating because I would have to reconnect the usb mouse to do any maneuvering around the system (since the touchpad was not working) to try something else.
The solution is ...


Touchpad Problem on Inspiron 1526
Today I installed Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) on my Dell Inspiron 1526 laptop. I previously ran Vista Home Premium (32 bit). I am currently having an issue with my touchpad. Specifically, it is no longer scrolling when I drag my finger across the far right of the touchpad. I have no idea how to fix this, and when I attempted to update the driver it said it was up to date. Any help would be appreciated.


Keyboard won't work after booting from Linux Mint
I have windows 7 home premium dual booting with Linux Mint 8, on a Dell XPS M1530.
When I shut down linux mint and go back into windows I have the following problem.
Upon the windows 7 desktop appearing, I am able to type or use the keyboard as usual-until I touch the touchpad on my laptop. After I touch the touchpad, (even for just the slightest second!) I am unable to type anything. For example, if I launch the start menu and then try to type to find a file nothing will happen. The only way for me to get by this is to reboot the computer again. So essentially I have to reboot twice in order to get a working keyboard with Windows after being in linux.
This problem does not happen if I stay in Windows and reboot windows repeatedly. (I tested it by reinstalling windows and having it as the only OS for about a week.)


The issue of Synaptics Touchpad has been resolved with inspiron 1501?
I was an user of Win7 X64 with a Inspiron 1501 Dell laptop, but went back to Vista due famous synaptics code 10 error...
Unlike Vostro 1520 this computer doesn't have bios updates anymore, so that doesn't fixes my mouse problems.
First two months Windows works really smooth, then one day my mouse stops working with the code 10 problem. I've tried everything, from uninstalling and installing the drivers, trying another drivers form another pc manufacturer but nothing, it stays with the code 10 error.
Here are some weird symptoms, I used to have a dual boot configuration with my good old XP SP3 a 7 X64, sometimes when returning back from XP my mouse would stop working or my screen would turn really messy, impossible in fact to read (will display messy lines) but after a reboot the screen would turn normal and the mouse would stop of working.


USB trackball and laptop touchpad problems
I'm running Win7 64bit Home Premium on my new Asus G60VX laptop and I'm having a problem. The laptop touchpad worked just fine until the first time I plugged in my USB trackball. Now the touchpad will only work in the login/welcome screen, after I sign in it is non-responsive even when the trackball is not connected. Is there anything I can do to make them both function at the same time or at least have the touchpad work when no USB pointing device is connected?


Touchpad not working.
Touchpad works until I enter log in pass and fully boot. Then can only use Blue Tooth mouse. Updated touchpad drivers but no luck turning on touchpad. With Vista it was as simple as turning Blue Tooth off. Computer is Alienware m15X. Any ideas?
Forgot to mention the Fn + F12 Key turns the lights on and off the touchpad but do not allow it to work.


Touchpad automatically clicks when typing
Whenever I try to type an email, during a chat, and even in this post, the touchpad clicks by itself leading me to send an email before i want to, closing the window, or just moving the cursor to a location in the middle of an email where a lot of jumbled text begins to form. How do I fix this problem of the touchpad clicking automatically.
I have visited the HP website and they do not have a driver for the touchpad for vista. I have an HP dv4335nr laptop
The touchpad is an Alps Touchpad Pointing Device as listed under XP. I've already re-installed windows 7 twice on this laptop and have the same problem every time.
