Having problems with your Dell Latitude C610 Notebook ?

Is there a way of disconnecting my ''tracking ball'' - not sure what it's called? It broke off and now my pointer keeps floating all over the screen. If I connect a mouse it seems to override it but would like to continue using the cursor pad without a mouse. Thanks Andy

Answers :

It can be disconnected, but if you have never taken apart a laptop I would not try it. A better way to disable it would be in the device manager. I'm going to assume you have Windows XP, if you don't, just let me know and I will give you the right instructions for whatever OS you have. Click on Start, then right click the "My Computer" icon. Next click "Properties". Select the "Hardware" tab and click "Device Manager". This will open the device manager window. Find the selection that says "mice and other pointing devices" and click the + sign next to it. This will show you what Windows sees you are using for a mouse. If you are also using a USB mouse at this time, it will be shown here. Right click on the mouse that is labeled as a touch pad and then click "Properties". Next click the "Advanced Settings" tab. Click the drop down box for "Wheel Detection" and select "Detection Disabled". This should cure the problem you are having. If not, you will need to disable the entire touch pad or find a way to disconnect the wires from the effective spot. Also, with this problem, you may have a hard time going through the procedure I just mentioned, but it is definitely much easier than taking the laptop apart, trust me. Let me know if you have any questions.
