Dell Studio 1749 Touchpad Scrolling Problem


Recently my laptop, dell studio 1749 lost it's proper ip address for wireless. I couldn't get a resolution to the problem by working with the router support people or internet provider people (should called dell). But i did get help from someone much more computer savy than me who fixed it by reinstalling, i guess pretty much everything. The computer really works fine now, with wireless connectivity, the only thing i no longer have is the capability of using the touchpad to swipe to scroll instead of using the scrollbar. How do i get that back? Windows 7 home premium. Is it a driver that didn't get reinstalled? How do i do that?  Should i try it myself if that's the case?

How To Disable Mouse Touchpad On Dell Laptop ?

I have a dell vostro 1500 laptop. When i opted for the yahoo task bar, i was pushed into yahoo 8. I wasn't happy, so i switched back to yahoo 7. Since then both my mouse pad and the hand mouse have been on simultaneously. When i go to the control panel and click on 'mouse", i receive the message that it can't open the synaptic pointer device. What is that? How do i get to it? I just want to turn off the mouse pad and stop my cursor from jumping around the screen. Does anybody know about this and can help?

Dell Xps Delayed Mouse Wheel Scrolling

Since installing win7-64 (dell xps) i have been noticing a weird scroll effect. Approximately 2-3 seconds after mouse-wheel scrolling, the active window "jumps" one more scroll increment in the same direction, without any input from me. This doesn't happen every time, but often enough that it causes problems. i.e. I'll scroll to a given location in windows explorer's folder list, then go grab a file to drag to a folder, but before i can drop it the folder list scrolls by itself. I've seen this happen in many programs, including windows explorer, ie8, firefox, eclipse, oxygen/xml, textpad. Anybody have any ideas what's causing this?

Dell Studio 1555 Bluescreen

I have 3 month old dell studio 1555 laptop which has 64-bit windows7. Since a week, it en-counted a bluescreen problem 3 times. Even today also. I thought i would like to share the dmp files to the microsoft support team so that they will give me the solution. I have uploaded the dmp files on my skydrive, as was requested by the experts for the analysis of the problem. Here are the links of the dmp files.

Upgrade On Dell Studio Xps 420

Trying to upgrade from vista on dell studio xps 420. The windows 7 operating system install disk will not auto launch and kicks the disk out of the drive after it scans from "my computer". I then get the insert disk message. Before attempting to install my windows 7 upgrade to my vista machine, i did all the uninstalls called out in the advisory scan. After uninstalling, i could no longer see my dvd drive in windows explorer or in "my computer".

I did a restore and again removed software. I then got an error 32. It seemed as if itunes had something to do with the missing drive. The update still would not load. If i selected the drive, it would scan, then the drive bay would open and i would get a "insert disk". The drive will read and write fine. Evey time i would do a driver update on the drive, i would get the best installed driver was present message.

Dell Studio 1745 Freezes Randomly

My new dell studio 1745 running windows 7 (64 bit) home premium / intel core 2 duo cpu t6600 @ 2. 20ghz / 4gb ram / freezes (for about one minute - once per day) randomly. I'm usually running the following applications daily: ie8, ms office 07, including outlook, excel, and word; itunes, and adobe reader. As i mentioned above, the machine randomly freezes (for about one minute) once a day. Sometimes the mouse cursor disappears during the freeze. Other times it turns into the "i'm working. Please wait" spinning wheel, during the freeze period.

Dell Studio Display Driver Crashing

I have had a dell studio 1537 laptop for almost a year now, and i installed windows 7 around christmastime. Since then, i have had trouble running a few of my games that worked perfectly fine before. The screen will go black, and the lappy will freeze for a few moments before returning with a bubble message that says "your display adapter has stopped working and has recovered". The card is the standard integrated mobile intel 45 express chipset and it says my driver is up to date. What to do?

Dell Studio 1555 Wireless Problem

I have a new dell studio 1555 laptop. Out of box worked okay, but eventually unable to connect using wireless unless i am sitting and using it in room directly below router. Even then i can have slow connection and at times can't connect. Had time warner cable check router, new router and working fine on tech's laptop. Called dell-they had me reinstall drivers. Still not fixed. Do i really have to pay for tech support for what i have been told is a windows 7 problem with a brand new computer?  This has been a very frustrating problem.

No Sound Dell Studio 1557 64-bit

No sounds on windows 7. I have a dell studio 1557 (64-bit) with windows 7 installed when i bought it last november. I used it without any problems until about february, when suddenly sound started not to work at all. Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem but running even a simple program (such as sound recorder or playing a wmv file using windows player) wouldn't work. I tried system restore as a last resort and it fixed the problem. For a while. It reappeared again after some time, and i fixed it again that way, and again and again. So i am wondering if this has any easy fix, and whether any programs might have compatibility issues and cause this?

Dell Studio 1737 Horizontal Lines

I just installed windows 7 on this dell studio 1737. I was using the pre-installed windows graphics driver, but am now using mobile intel(r) 4 series express chipset family drivers. Here is an example of the problem i am having at it's worst.

http://lh4. Ggpht.com/_8ex_rjq_ii4/tbesz6ptd4i/aaaaaaaaagq/y40jpm80mds/video%20problem%201.png

Now, i just discovered tonight that switching to 16-bit colours will fix the problem entirely, and still leaves windows working great, so i can live with that. But i am worried in case this is a hardware problem, in which case, i'm pretty screwed, right? Given that this isn't a graphics card, it is an integrated chip. Thanks for any help. Edit: this computer has worked fine on vista for about a year now, with no display problems in that time. It has only just happened, right after i installed 7.

Dell Studio 1537 Infrared Receiver Problem

How do i get my dell studio 1537 laptop, with win7 pro, and the "itecir infrared receiver (ec)" driver to recognize my rc6 xbox 360 universal remote control?

I have a dell studio 1537 laptop, with a built-in rc6 ir port. The "microsoft ehome infrared transceiver" is listed in my device manager. The "itecir infrared receiver (ec)" is listed in my device manager. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing each, several times, with reboots between.
I've tried the "update driver software" several times for each.

No matter what i do, i cannot get windows media center to move when i use the remote. The rc6 xbox universal remote works perfectly on the xbox in a different room. Windows media center navigates fine with the keyboard. I do not want to have to plug in an external usb ir receiver - i want to use the one that is built in to the laptop. Is there something i'm missing? Does anyone know any other websites that could help me with this?

Close Lid Problem In Dell Studio 1555 Laptop

In power settings on my dell studio 1555 laptop, i changed close lid action to "do nothing" the laptop still stopped display when i tried to close the lid and use an external monitor only. I found this support forum about windows vista: http://social. Msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en/tabletandtouch/thread/06d8f624-bdd3-4d45-a62a-60c9bcb81f57

Within the thread, i found a workaround which neutralizes the menacing acpi lid driver. So microsoft, please fix this awful acpi lid driver that still screws up laptops that are connected to external monitors! This problem is at least 3 and a half years old.

Mouse Scrolling

I recently installed a wireless keyboard and mouse. ( Microsoft natural wireless ergonomic keyboard 7000  and mouse, microsoft natural wireless laser mouse 7000) so, i installed the disk and the mouse has functions to zoom in go back to pages and vertical scrolling. So, it works good.

Then when i want to use my old mouse ( only can click, scroll and right click ) to play computer games as the wireless mouse does not fits me (counter strike cz), i couldn't scroll down to select weapons even when i use internet and trying to scroll down, it doesn't work.

But the wireless mouse is useful for surfing the internet so i do not wish to delete the program that allows the mouse to function. But drags me down during gaming.

Uncontrolled Scrolling

I'm experiencing uncontrolled scrolling on my dell studio 1737 with a windows 7 64-bit os. It isn't limited to a specific software. Whenever a scroll list is available, the list cannot be pulled down further than what is immediately viewable without rolling back up to the top (program list, file list, favorites list in ie, etc. ). It is even evident in the volume control in the system tray.

If i pull the scroll bar down in the volume control, the bar just rolls back up to the top at max volume. I've actually had to mute the volume. Dell is refusing to support the problem (without paying them more!) Claiming it's a software issue. I've updated my bios and sound driver to no avail. Any ideas?

Scrolling Problem With Win 7

After installing windows 7 on my workstation two months ago, i recently started having scrolling problems such as:

1. In excel if i scroll to a cell outside the initial display screen, the document will automatically scroll back to the top or left side of the document. I have to hide cells to enter data beyond my screen display.

2. When i try to select a program at the end of the "all programs" list (selected from the "start" button), the list automatically scrolls back to the top after trying to select a program.

3. After downloading a program file, i could not select a language from a drop-down list because it would automatically scroll back up to the top of the list.

Anti-virus, malware, and spyware application scans are up to date ( no infections) including windows updates. I tried using a mouse plugged in by usb vs wireless and still have the same problem.

Any suggestions?

Touchpad Settings Problem

I recently bought my hp pavilion dm3-1030us and installed win7 professional. When i started, i could access my touch pad settings via the control panel (under devices and sound) by clicking on "mouse". In order to have a real mouse as well as a touch pad, i plugged in a usb mouse, which installed itself (as would be expected). However, the problem is that now the only mouse settings i can find are the ones for the installed usb mouse. I really want to change the settings on my touch pad so that it's less jumpy and doesn't "tap-click" while i'm typing.

Scrolling Problem In Virtual Pc 2007

I'm running virtual pc 2007 on a dell inspiron 1545 laptop with windows 7 as the primary operating system. In virtual pc i'm running windows 98 se, so that i can run some old ssi games (panzer general 2, pacific general). The problem i have in the games is that when i go to the edge of the screen to scroll through the map, rather than a nice smooth movement, it jumps all the way to the edge of the map, with no in between. It either doesn't move or when it does it's rapid uncontrolled movement to the edge. Is there any way to slow it down so that it behaves more like it did in a native setup of windows 98?

Synaptics Touchpad Conflict With Microsoft Mouse

I am having a problem with win 7 and an apparent conflict with the synaptics touchpad. I have a microsoft mouse working so i can use the laptop, but the touchpad won't work. I have tried just about everything from uninstalling both the touchpad and the mouse to a clean install of windows. I have narrowed it down (after several clean installs) to what seems to be a conflict with outlook connector. After the clean install the touchpad has resumed working and then i had to reload all of my programming which is a real pain.

The touch pad seemed to stop working after i downloaded and installed the outlook connector to allow mapi connection to my msn.com emails. I can not keep up the clean install process (done at least 3 times). I have downloaded the synaptics driver direct from the company without a fix. Gateway says keep doing a clean install which is ludicrous. The touchpad driver says it is working properly with no conflicts even though it does not work. I believe that this is a windows 7 problem. Any further ideas would be appreciated. By the way once the synaptics touchpad stops working nothing short of a clean install will fix the problem, so i have a choice no outlook or no touchpad.
