Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a dell inspiron 2200 laptop. The touch pad stopped working, thus I had to get an external mouse. How do I fix the touch pad to work again????


Answers :

You probably just need to reinstall the touchpad drivers. First, find the Dell Service Tag # (usually on the bottom of the laptop). Go to www.dell.com - near the bottom middle click the link under Support called "Drivers and Downloads". Click "Enter a Tag" and enter your Service Tag #. On the next page, select your Operating System and down below you will see a section for Input Device Drivers (probably a Synaptics driver). Download and install that driver and you should be able to use your touchpad again. Let me know if this helps. Thanks.
