Hi shepherd_jul,

Kindly let me know the system model and Operating system installed on the computer so that I can help you better.

Check if the same happens in safe mode. Restart the computer and hit F8 on dell logo and select safe mode.Now use the touchpad in safe mode.

If the touchpad shows the same behavior in safe mode, try uninstalling/reinstalling the touchpad Driver:

Follow below steps to Uninstall and reinstall the drivers:

  • Click “Start”, type “Device Manager” and press enter.
  • In the “Device Manager” window, open the "Mice and Other Pointing Devices" selection.
  • Under “"Mice and Other Pointing Devices", right click the Synaptic touchpad, and click “Uninstall”.
  • Check the box “Delete driver software for this device”, click ok and follow the on-screen instructions to uninstall.
  • Restart the computer.

Install the touchpad drivers:

  • Visit the following website: http://dell.to/10GaKAc
  • Enter the Service tag of the computer in the box provided and click “Submit”.
  • In the next page, click drop down arrow to select the Operating System which is installed in the computer.
  • Under category Input, click on the touchpad drivers and click “Download File” and save the file on desktop.
  • Double click the file and follow the onscreen instructions.

****NOTE: The above troubleshooting steps are for windows 7 Operating system.

Let me know the status.

Thanks & Regards
