Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

Can't see the touchpad icon on the system tray


Answers :

Hi! I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with a touchpad (this model is a bit older than yours). If you want to see the touchpad icon in the System Tray so that you can change the settings and so forth, here is how to do it in Windows XP:

1. Go to Start, then Control Panel, then Mouse.

2. In the Mouse Properties dialog box that pops up, look for a tab called "Dell Touchpad" and click on it to select it.

3. Click on the big picture of the touchpad with the arrow in the middle of the new dialog box that pops up.

4. You should now see a new window that says "Dell Touchpad" pop up.

5. At the bottom of the Dell Touchpad window, click the checkbox that says "Display icon in taskbar" (you should see a checkmark in this box).

6. You should now be able to see the Dell Touchpad icon in your System Tray.

7. If you still do not see the Dell Touchpad icon, or if you do not see a tab that says "Dell Touchpad," then try re-installing the driver for the Dell Touchpad by going to:

http://support.dell.com

Enter the service tag of your laptop, or its model number (Inspiron 1525), then hit the Confirm button. You should see a new window pop up that shows all the compatible drivers for your laptop. The one you will need in this case is under the section "Input Device Drivers." Look for the driver for the Dell Touchpad, download it, and then install it, if necessary.

Also, please make sure that you can see all the icons in your System Tray. If you can't, then try clicking on the little left-facing arrow in the System Tray, which will expand the System Tray to show all the icons there, and then you should be able to see the missing Dell Touchpad Icon.

I do hope this solves your problem. Please feel free to comment on my solution, and rate me as to how I did. Thank you!
Right click the taskbar and go to propreties. In the notification area click on customize. From here you can tweak what programs are displayed and when. If this doesn't work, make sure the program or driver is still installed in programs and features of the control panel. If it is, make sure the program is in your startup programs. Do this by typing msconfig in your search bar ( win 7 and vista ) or in the run command. Go to the startup tab and make sure that program is checked.
