Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook ?

Touchpad key 'sticky'

\015 The left touch pad key on my Dell Inspiron laptop is sticky, and you have to hit it a couple of times to illicit a response. I am sure the problem is not serious - can anyone tell me how to remove the key to clean it, and see if anything needs to be replaced? Thanks\015

Answers :

Hi Talderman,\015\012\015\012Are you referring to the ?mouse? button just below the touchpad? If yes, that is a common problem and could be the result of foreign material getting in-between the contacts or more likely mechanical wear from use. You can try cleaning the contacts but you will need to disassemble the laptop to get to the touchpad assembly which is part of the palmrest. It?s not a quick or risk free job and typically is beyond the abilities of most home users since it involves removing the LCD panel. \015\012Unless you have the skills, tools and have the ability to risk the machine I would suggest taking it to the local Dell authorized shop and having the touchpad replaced.\015\012\015\012If you decide you want to try let us know and I?ll post instructions on how to take it apart. By the way Ebay has the part for about $20?..\015\012\015\012Good luck and please don?t forget to rate the post.
