Solved: Dell Latitude D630 touchpad icon in tray disappears, so does touchpad!

Q: Solved: Dell Latitude D630 touchpad icon in tray disappears, so does touchpad!


I have a Dell Latitude D630 laptop that has issues. Sometimes the touchpad works, and sometimes it doesn't. I've noticed when it doesn't work, the icon in the tray has disappeared or never booted up to begin with. Sometimes it boots up and sometimes it just doesn't even boot up to the tray at all. And at other times, it does.
(Along with this, maybe it's just a coincidence, but I've been working on this for days and days but when the touchpad doesn't work, the keyboard acts up too!) This might have nothing to do with it at all.

I've done a complete reformat of the hard drive, installed Win XP Professional, reinstalled drivers over and over. Been to the Dell website and have all the newest drivers.
When I reinstall the touchpad drivers, it does work once again, but this seems to be short lived.
The laptop is 4 years old...seems strong otherwise, can handle multiple tasks fairly well, has a dual core installed.
I can't figure it out.
Can anyone help?

Thank you!!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello all,

I recently installed Windows 7 x64 onto my Dell Latitude D630 and found that the scrolling with the touchpad does not work at all. I have already downloaded and installed the Synaptics driver and nothing happened. I also downloaded R165804.exe directly from Dell's site and it came up with an error saying that 'the software does not work on your operating system. Click OK to exit.'

What now?

A:How to Enable Scrolling on Dell Latitude D630 Touchpad?

The Dell downloads do not show a touchpad driver for Vista 64 bit. Just the one you have which is listed for Vista 32 bit only.

Try installing that in a compatibility mode and see if that will help.

You can also post on the Dell laptop forum and maybe someone there will have something for you. Officially Dell does not support Win 7 on this model, although Vista drivers should work OK.

i have a dell latitude laptop and the touchpad started behaving crazy from last week. i didnt notice when it started to happen and don't know what might be the cause.

in the synaptics tray icon when you right click there is a set of options that you can choose, and one of the options is called a pressure graph (there is also a mood pad next to it), and when i click on this pressure graph it gives me the following message: "Sorry, this program requires a Synaptics TouchPad and the Synaptics TouchPad Device Driver." and i'm pretty certain i've got the driver for it, and i've got the correct driver for it; but i can't be sure whether the installation is damaged or not. how can i check this? could there be something in the registry that prevents this from working or perhaps a conflict with another device? i tried reinstalling - it didnt work.

So it could be either hardware or software and I need to find out as soon as possible because I'm getting little annoyed by this mouse business.

Anyone with a solution?

Hi all,

I have the aforementioned laptop. The issue with it is that Windows 10 does not seem to register the touchpad in Device Management. I have attempted to rectify this by doing the following: 1) new touchpad drivers from Windows 10 update, 2) new device drivers from Dell support pages, 3) new device drivers from the Dell Device Detector dongle, and finally 4) Bios update. None of these seem to fix my issue. 

As a bonus: I am receiving an Alps_Mouse_SetMouseMonitor error as well with every reboot of the laptop that I perform.

Thanks in advanced!

I just installed Win7 on my Dell Latitude D620 Laptop. Now some of the functions (scrolling mainly) are not working. I have been unable to find where I can change the settings. In addition, when I click on the screen and, for instance, begin to type, the cursor will randomly move to where the pointer is. As you can imagine, this is very frustrating. Your help is most appreciated.

Thank you,

The touchpad on the Dell Latitude E7270 is not properly detected with Ubuntu 16.04. It is only detected as a "ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse".
The touchpad works, but there is no possible configuration about it.
I can't find what is the brand/model of the touchpad, it doesn't seem to be a Synaptics. Do you know by any chance what is the brand/model of the touchpad and/or if there is any driver for Ubuntu?

I'm using a Dell Latitude D630 computer with XP on a network and when I close the cover it doesn't talk to the network. I've checked and set all settings in XP, Bios, and the Registry for the laptop to stay on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Dell Latitude D630

Go to Control Panel - Power Options.

Since you have a laptop, there should be a setting that's associated with closing the lid.

Set it on "Do nothing", then apply the change, then restart the computer.


You might also want to set the power scheme on "Always on" and set all the other settings on "Never" and turn off hibernation.

Hello Latitude E7470 Owners,
I'm a bit fussy about touchpads. I consider buying a Dell Latitude E7470 because of its physical touchpad mouse buttons. However, I read in a German notebook review, that they found the touchpad a bit imprecise. Especially when they scrolled with two fingers the screen content did jump or was lagging. Can someone of you confirm this?
Thank you very much in advance!

Anyhow, at some points while using this laptop the pointer would randomly go off into the corner of the screen. Whenever I tried to move it from there it would resist from movement. I installed the drivers for this laptop but it still does it. Any help is appreciated.

(I'm afraid to contact Dell about this laptop cause I bought it at a Yard Sale. I tried to once but apparently I guess the phone number and name didn't match the the info on the Service Tag and they were asking me weird questions.)

Recently I have bought my Dell Latitude E5470 laptop and from the beginig I have annoying touchpad issue :(
When trackpoint and touchpad are active at the same time, cursor freezes for 3-5 seconds and moves to the left at a small angle. When trackpoint is disabled, cursor freezes for 3-5 seconds and doesn't move at all. If I use touchpad actively, this happens each minute or two.
I have checked this situation from the BIOS and the case looks slightly different, but still the same.

I just bought a refurbished Dell latitude 2110. Worked fine when I got it, but then the touch screen stopped working. If I reboot, it works until I choose a user, then stops when I open the user account. It's going back unless I find that I've inadvertently turned the touchscreen off. Without the touch screen, it's pretty much a brick. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My oldest teenage grandson is in need of a "cheap" laptop, so I bought him a refurbished Dell Latitude D630 from NEWEGG for $215.00 plus shipping.

It has a 14" display, an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.83 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 60 GB hard drive, a DVD/CDRW drive, and Windows XP Professional.

My decision to buy this laptop was based on Dell being more reliable than most other laptop brands - according to some members here.

Any input from the members here would be very much appreciated.

Hi, when I try to use my latitude, the cursor and highlight are extremely erratic. When I try to enter the start menu, I can barely click on the right application because the highlight keeps rapidly switching from side to side and when I click it opens whatever was highlighted. I can't get into my System Properties because the tabs keep switching and as soon as I try to get back to the tab I want, it does a cycle through all the tabs. I can't use the arrow keys to control the highlight. Reinstalling the touchpad driver didn't help at all.

I newly got a Dell Latitude E7470 laptop, It was perfect until I discovered this weird issue.
The cursor is moving slowly.when I finger oh the touchpad / pointstick had moved to the position I desired, the I need to wait for cursor to move. Sometimes I can see he laggingf shadow with my cursor.The issue only happens when Laptop wakes from Sleep with Battery(not plug in AC) or startup with Battery(not plug in AC).

I had switched with all 4 battery mode(Dell,Balance, high performance, Power Saver)
The battery level is regardless, I had tested with 100%, 65% 35%,7%.
Full shutdown and reboot doesn't help.
I had the latest drivers for input devices installed as well. 
The machine was newly restored with system image.(not related to OS)
No hardware upgrades.

Workaround: Connect External Mouse or Simply plug in AC. The most weird part is I don't even have to keep AC plugged in, I could plug in for 1 sec and then unplug, the cursor will be fine until I turn off the lid.
What do I want?
This is definitely how laptop suppose to work, and I don't have external mouse to carry with me. Can some advise what is might be the issue?

Thank you for in advance.

Hi all,

I'm running latest Windows 10 64bit on E6430. Few days before, tapping on the touchpad stopped working - no click is produced. Everything else is working perfectly. The driver is the latest one from Dell.
When I returned to an old driver which does not support multitouch, clicking works, but this way I miss the multitouch...
I guest that this has been broken with the latest Windows updates.

What should I do to get my touchpad fully functional?

I switched my Dell Latitude D630 on yesterday morning and the WiFi light wasn't lit, and I am unable to connect to any network. I'm completely baffled why this has happened. I was using it the previous night, streaming some music on Spotify, then I turned it off as normal, and when I tried using the internet the next day...nothing. The bluetooth light is lit as normal but the WiFi light stays off, and I've tried turning the external switch on/off to no avail.

Can anybody suggest what might be causing this, or any remedies?

Many thanks.

Two days ago my Internet/Wireless connectivity icon suddenly disappeared from the tray. I found this thread here:


The first fix worked immediately until I rebooted again this morning. The icon was gone again. I tried the second fix shown which suggests altering the power settings, but my settings were already set accordingly.

I've been asking myself "what did I install two days ago that could have caused this?" and the anser is "nothing". Nothing except the usual stuff that Windows Update sends down the line and who knows what that contains? Defender updates, security updates. I suppose it could be in one of those.

Can anyone suggest a handling?


A:Solved: Network Icon Disappears From Tray

Read other 9 answers

I have purchase multiple xps 13 and inspiron 13 laptops and observe the same issues.  I tend to use the touch pad with my right hand's index finger, and click the touchpad button with my left hand's index finger.  It's a quick way to get things done.  Many in my organization do this, too and have been running into problems.
However, quite frequently (but not all the time) when I click the button with my left hand the cursor jumps to another location on the screen.  Frequently this is the lower-left corner of the screen, but sometimes it is the upper right, too. This causes different windows to come into focus, or it activates the start menu.  Really , really annoying, and it happens on both laptop models.  Our previous Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro and Acer laptops did not have this issue. 
I think this has to do with the touch pad thinking that the user has two fingers on the touch pad and moves the cursor thinking the finger jumped around the pad.  Otherwise the gestures and movement of the touchpad is fine. 
Is this a known issue to Dell?  It's really aggravating and other users in my organization are complaining as well.  I may need to return the lot (3 XPS 13, 5 Inspiron 13 machines ) and look at different hardware.

First you need to contact that son of yours and give him a bit of your mind after he tells you what he changed.

Hi all,
ok I pulled a real boner and it has me going nuts. I bought a used Dell D630, the unit had/has a bios boot password. Well the price was good has an extended battery etc, clean machine etc. I thought what the hell I should be able to work around that! LOL wrong
anyways while trying different key strokes while booting I found a combo that did something. As the unit is booting I held the CTRL key down and mashed the 'D" key (not the delete key "D" as in Delta) a zilllion times, well the password screen came up with normal text except a now it showed a few garbage characters, ok it is doing something. I repeated the boot and mash three more times and finally came up with total googly gawk. Cool maybe I got somewhere, did a reboot with no mashing.....oop's NO video, unit lights up, drives come on back light comes on NO nothing no text no boot no post screen nothing!

Removed cmos battery, took out battery unplugged power held down the power button for minutes...walla nothing. It appears I bricked the unit? it wouldn't even boot up with a live cd. So now have I just flushed 150.00 down the toilet? from key combos? I even tried the external monitor that didn't work.....any ideas? Thanx all

I recently acquired a Dell Latitude D630. It only had one issue, the battery was bad. I can deal with that.

After having it and using it, working fine of course, for about a month or two it shuts down on its own and restarts. Thinking "okay, that's a bit weird but its working fine" I go back to browsing the web only to have my screen discolor to a shade of pinkish purple with a hint of the matrix and freeze up for a period of two minutes. Then it goes complete glitch and my screen flashes with an almost statically distorted image where it then tries to blue screen but the screen display is so messed up I can barely tell what it is.

And so I restart it. Nothing off or wrong when I login to my admin account. Everything works fine for ten mins tops while I am running a virus scan and a sys diagnostic. Near the end of the processes I run it does the same thing.

In normal boot, I can get 5 minutes top before it complete fritzes and restarts itself, after screen distorted images.

safe Mode with Networking works fine, when I can even connect to a network.

All I want to do is play a game or browse the web but I can't even do that now. Any and all ideas, fixes, etc would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello... I'm hoping someone can help me out on this...

I replaced the LCD for the dell laptop since it was stepped on an broken. The computer worked perfectly before installing the new screen, except for the fact that you could only see on half the screen and the other half was shattered.

I bought the screen off of ebay using a part number and installed it. Now the united doesn't even power up. Nothing, completely dead. It was suggested that the motherboard fried and perhaps it was the wrong part... however it never turned on at all since. Not for a second or anything. Took it to another guy and he said the keyboard isn't hitting the power button and there should be a way to turn it on without the keyboard. Perhaps under the wifi? I can't find the switch, though it looks to me like its just on the keyboard. If so, is it possible that it's just the keyboard that was busted? I did remove it because I thought it was necessary though it turned out not to be.

Any help would be really great, as it appears as though I broke my bosses relatively new laptop. Thanks in advance.

I'm having a problem with my computer.
I haven't done anything out of the ordinary. The other day I was on my computer and all of the sudden a screen appeared over my current screen. It almost looked like a screen in a window but with a yellow color so I could still see the window I had open. It froze my computer and within 30 seconds, it had shut down. I tried to reboot the computer but it did not turn on.

I then took out the battery and put it back in, but nothing worked. About 30 minutes later it finally turned back on but within 10 minutes, the same thing happened. This happened another 4 times that evening.

The next day when I finally got the computer going for more then 15 minutes. I ran a full scan for the computer and for the internet. Everything came up negative.

I was wondering if anyone knows what this problem is and if so how to fix it.

Thank you so much.

Hi all,

I have a Dell Latitude D630 and I would like to attach 2 external monitors to it and make one a default monitor and the other the extended with the lid of the laptop closed. The integrated video card is a Mobile Intel GMA X3100, and i have a port replicator (not a docking station).

What i've done is attached a dongle to the replicator, attached both external monitors, closed the laptop, and then both monitors are clones. I go into display properties\settings tab and select monitor number 1 to be default, selected monitor 2 and checked "extend Windows..." click apply but the "extend Windows..." selection deselects and goes back to original configuration.

Second try: I opened the lid to the laptop and sucessfully set the laptop as default monitor and "extend Windows..." to monitor "2" but both external monitors are clones. So essectially the system recognizes 2 monitors, one is the lcd on the laptop, and the second are both the external monitors.

I understand that the video card can only recognize two monitors therefore we will not see "3" monitors in the display properties. But i don't need the laptop and both monitors to work. What I'd like is to have my laptop lid closed, monitor 1 be the default, and monitor 2 be the extended, but the system is still seeing 3 monitors instead of 2 even with the lid of the laptop closed. Does someone know how to trick the system? Thank you in advance for your help... Read more

A:Concern of Upgrading RAM on Dell Latitude D630 (HELP)

hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer!!
considering that your Lappy is windows XP, it may be time to consider a new PC rather than upgrading an unsupported XP machine. but i can definiltely understand not wanting to just de-commission a PC that should still run well with that Core2 in it.
RAM is a data hold area that is frequently accessed in a cache, to avoid hard drive accessing, which is considerably slower..everytime the PC is reset or powered down, the RAM resets and is ready for a new session to issue data to it for a temporary access channel. there are a number of options for you. you could consider a thorough backup of data on an external media and a windows 7 home premium 64 bit clean install which would wipe your hard drive clean. those windows licenses are around $100 though.  70gb hard disk space is plenty for a casual user that isn't storing massive media files and such. but most users  aren't comfortable with only around 50gb hard drive space free (windows x64 needs around 20gb itself and then needs another 10gb just to run in spec)
or, you could go with the windows 7 32 bit, which is fine also, and won't be so  demanding of resources like hard drive space and RAM. the 4gb RAM is  the maximum that can be read with a 32 bit OS system though and that is what you have so you will be fine there.
after a ram upgrade, XP alerts the user that the hardware is found and then asks for further configuration , at which time, ... Read more

all right here is the story.

I just bought a 2gb stick of memory, and went to install it. all I got was a blue screen saying .......failed or whatever.

so I decide to try it in the primary memory slot, (located in different spot) so i take the keyboard out, and try it in there. still no go. replaced the old memory and booted it up (in the original state it was in)

no lights, no fan, nothing happens. I plugged the power cord in and I get 1 light telling me that it is getting power on my keyboard, but the power button still does not work.

so question is, do i need a new keyboard (maybe the wires got messed up for the keyboard) or is it my motherboard?

any tips would be GREAT!

The rest is being used by Windows or hardware inside the system - that's normal;  it means you have 25% of your memory available.
If the system has an integrated Intel GPU (likely, as most of the discrete nVidia ones are long dead due to a design fault by now), it's also using system memory for video purposes.

Try an external screen - if it shows a good image, it is likely a bad display panel (and/or backlight, part of the display).

Hi Guys, i have a Dell Latitude D630 Laptop and i need to know how i can activate the keyboard light, i tried to press Fn+right arrow but nothing happened, i'm wondering that i un-installed by mistake the driver of this option !! thank you for replying to me.Abou Kenza
