The touchpad is not working on my Inspiron E1705, I have tried all ideas that I can find in the Dell site and nothing works that makes it work.
It can not be a hardware problem as when I am in Diagonostics the touchpad works, when I am in normal mode it does not work. I normally use a Logitech wireless mouse which is great but if that ever went bad I would be up the river without a paddle. I have disconnected the USB wireless that works for the Logitech and still the touchpad will not work. Driver after driver I have tried without any success. I have tried removing the battery and pressing boot-up nothing. Has anybody any gems of wisdom?
Double click the Synaptics Touchpad Icon in system tray(it looks like a monitor and highlights in green when you press and use the pad).If it is not in the tray click control panel>mouse.Then click to UN check "Disable TouchPad / Stick when a USB pointing device is present".Then click to Enable the "Touchpad Buttons" and "Touchpad" directly above this option.

Thanks for the response but sadly it didn't work.
The icon is not in the sys tray and when I went to Mouse in CP it is not available unable to connect and then received a message saying rundell.32 has stopped running and will be stopped. Very puzzled.
