Hey guys, My Dell Inspiron 15R running Windows 8 has has had a touchpad problem for as long as I can remember. Basically, when any key is pressed, the clicking function on the touchpad is disabled both while the key is pressed and for about 1 second afterthe key has been pressed. The latest driver update (126.96.36.199) fixed the <ADMIN NOTE: Substitute character removed as per TOU> Palm Rejection feature. With this update, when Palm Rejection is disabled, it allows for the cursor to move while/after a key is pressed, but actually clicking (whether it is with tapping or with the actual left-click button) is still not enabled, no matter how many different settings configurations I try from within Dell Touchpad settings.
If you want the quick version, here are things I've already tried:
Updating my driver: it's up-to-date.
Enabling/disabling Palm Rejection.
Enabling/disabling tap clicking.
Please look into this for me. I truly can't afford to buy a mouse right now, and this fix would be very helpful. Thank you.
