The touch pad on my N7110 Inspiron stopped working.
I do not see a touch pad device listed in Device Manager and do not have a touch pad tab in Mouse Properties.
I have downloaded and installed the touch pad driver, R307442, to no avail.
Does anyone have any ideas?
No pointer movement from the touch pad is usually the result of one of two things: The touch pad has been disabled in the driver interface, or the touch pad cable is damaged or disconnected. Follow the steps below to determine the problem.
The Inspiron™ N7110 / 17R come with a Touch Pad status light which is lit when the touch pad is disabled
