Dell vostro touchpad and Shut down problems
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.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Compatibility mode don't work and my touchpad is not installed. Dell put on board (ALPS touchpads).
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?
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!
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?
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.
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.
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.
