Dell Latitude E6430: Tapping on touchpad does not produce click

Q: Dell Latitude E6430: Tapping on touchpad does not produce click

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 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.

I own a Dell Latitude E6430.   I am looking for a Dell Companion 12000mAh or 18000mAh type of device to power and charge my Dell Lattitude E6430 when I am traveling (no outlet available).   When I view the compatibility list for both the Dell Companion 12000mAh and the 18000mAh I don't see the Dell Latitude E6430 in either list.  I went and purchased the 12000mAh and I am attempting to use this to charge and power my Dell Latitude E6430.  It powers my Dell Laptop for about a minute and then quits.   Is there a solution for this problem?   And/or is there another Dell Companion type device that I can purchase that is listed as 100% compatible with the Dell Latitude E6430?   I would like to either get this solution working or purchase the product that is listed as 100% compatible.

I have a HP Entertainment PC laptop. It's Windows 7 (upgraded from Windows Vista). When I tap on the touchpad, it won't work as a click. It's so annoying that I have to use the button below the touchpad to click. Help me, please.

Thank you~

A:How can I make “tapping the mousepad (touchpad) to work as a click”?

Did you install the touchpad drivers from HP? If so, you may have to play around with some settings for it in control panel. If yo did the upgrade isntall its supposed to keep all your drivers, but sometimes it doesn't retain all of them.

hello i have both these laptops well i have bought a e6420 for my girlfriend as the other one she has is crap.well i have read that these e6420 get warm and well i found out they come with one pipe heatsink well i heard u can upgrade the heatsink to a 2 pipe one.(DUAL HEATPIPE heatsink DELL P/N - TYP01) i was wondering what else do i need to do this as when i get this laptop its second hand i7 pro in it 2.8ghz im going to clean it out and put new paste on it put i hear people are on about this copper shim to put on it.can this be done and well can i upgrade my dell latitude e6430 i5 pro 2.6ghz heatsink with the double heatsink as i know that one only comes with one pipe.love you guys info if you guys can help me would be class thanks

i got this info here GPU Temperature 103C on Latitude E6420 - General Hardware - Laptop - Dell Community

A:Dell latitude e6430 and dell latitude e6420

Joseph mate best leave as is after all it was made to function as it came. Now for the compound and copper shim personally I would not bother with the copper shim I can see no good reason for it the dual pipe again if it was made to work with one pipe then leave alone.

It is better if you renew the compound using a decent cleaner and compound and I can recommend these for that job

Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean for thorough cleaning and preparation and Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5 for the compound.

Now it depends on who you listen to but I always use these products and after the old compound is thoroughly cleaned off and the surfaces prepped I spread the compound very thinly and across the both entire surface of the CPU and the heatsink with my finger inside a vinyl or latex glove and then place a rice grain sized piece of compound on the CPU and replace the heatsink. If you touch the surfaces after clean and prep then redo it.

While you are in there do make sure the fan and the radiator are really spotless and I sometimes relube the fan bearings to make sure the fan is running at full tilt when needed.

Hi,
I got a dell latitude e6430 around a year ago as a present and since yesterday (7/09/14) I couldn't get on it. It starts but it keeps going on startup repair (I've done this around 5 times) and the message that comes up with...

"if you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer. If you continue to see this message, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance"

I click finish and still when I turn it on again it doesn't work. I've attached my photo memory card but I done it ages ago with no problem and nothing new has been attached.

If someone knows how to fix it I would be so grateful

Many (most) Dell's do not have user fan speed control. Its what it is. Laptops, in general, tend to run warm as they sacrifice extra cooling for reduction in fan noise.

A:Frequent BSODs on my dell latitude E6430

Bluetooth is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Out of 10 memory dumps there were 7 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Windows will install most of the drivers. In most cases you will need to download and install the correct sound driver as Windows will only install the generic, basic function High Definition Audio Driver. Any specific Dell hardware drivers may need to be installed.

If the Latitude came with Windows 7, access the Dell downloads using the service tag number and it will list all applicable drivers, as it was originally built.

I'm planning on reinstalling Windows 7 on my Latitude E6430, but it's been so long since I bought it that I'm not sure if I have the correct re-installation DVD.  I have a couple of Dell laptops, and the one DVD I can find has a dark blue label, with the following Part Number at the bottom:
P/N D0V2K
I also have the driver disk, which mentions that it's for the Latitude E6430, so I should be good to go if I can Windows 7 successfully installed.
Thanks for any advice.

A:Reinstalling Windows 7 on Dell Latitude E6430

The driver disk is too old now. Get the drivers from Dell Downloads and Drivers for your model, All the Dell reinstall disks can be used as long as it is the exact same version of win 7--Home, Pro, SP1, Media, etc.
I have to warn you about reinstalling windows 7--it rarely works without major problems. Windows 7 is not supported by MS except for security updates and many have found that it would not reinstall properly. Be sure that a reinstall is needed. Why don't you consider upgrading to windows 10 while you can get it free? That offer is over at the end of July.

I have some problems with networking when using a docking station I hope to solve with this..Please no advice how to update Bios, I already tried everything(!). The Laptop does just a reboot instead of flashing the update.
I can create a dump of A14 from Windows using Intels FPTW (64bit Version) without a problem, so I hope it will work with A18 as well.At least using Windows 7 Pro 64bit with Adminstrator account. If anybody with an E6430 and A18 could just create a dump (just click "dump.bat") and upload it here it would really make me happy.

I have several Dell Latitude E6430 PCs that I use external wired USB keyboards with. After a while (~ one hour?) the keyboard stops responding. If I wait long enough (15 minutes?) I can start typing again. It seems that the notebook keyboard also stops responding. I am using external monitors via e-port replicators. There have been times when I am able to type ONLY in a certain field. For example a form in an IE window that is running in compatibility mode. I do not have an issue within VMware Workstation 11.

I have restored to factory image, reloaded software and still have the problem. I have updated BIOS and drivers. I have removed USB controllers using Device Manager and restarted. Still have issues.

Systems are using Windows 7 Pro.

Curious if other software might be causing issues. Some installed programs include MS Office 2013, Notepad++, Paint.net, BeyondCompare, VMware Workstation 11, FileZilla, Greenshot, Google Drive, Chrome, Tracker PDF Viewer, GoToMeeting, Kaspersky Internet Security.....

A:Default sound device is disabled - Dell Latitude E6430

Hello. Is your audio working at all? If so, what is showing as the default device? Which device are you trying to make be the default?
If the audio is not working at all, did the failure come with no unusual circumstances, or was it after a new program or operating system was installed?
If no audio at all, use System Restore to try to undo changes. Try to find a restore point dated from before the failure and revert to that date. Using System Restore will not delete any data files. Type "system restore" into the Start menu search box, and then, in the list of results, click System Restore.
If that does not help, remove the IDT audio driver and run on the Windows native audio driver. Go to Start>Control Panel. In the upper right corner select "View by category". Select "Uninstall a Program". Find the IDT audio driver then right click on it and uninstall it. When you reboot the computer Windows will install its native audio driver. Check that it is installed by going to the Sounds properties. If it says "High Definition Audio Device" on any of the tabs then it is the native driver. If it says "IDT High Definition Audio Codec" then it is still an IDT driver, so repeat the procedure. (Windows will keep installing IDT drivers until all that have been downloaded are removed.)

I recently bought an E6430 laptop with Windows 10 Pro and had about 3 months of trouble free use out of it until yesterday morning when it completely failed. It is definitely the motherboard, because whenever I connect the (or any other) AC Adapter to the laptop, the green light on it instantly turns off and the computer is still stone dead - no lights, no sound of spinning fans or HDD. Totally useless now.
I tried the recommended 'reset' steps where I removed the battery, AC Adapter, (and later: the HDD and RAM as well) and held the power on button for at least 30 seconds, before reconnectig the battery and trying to turn it on again.. Still dead. Nothing I tried worked, so conceded that I'm just another one of possibly 100's of thousands of similar disappointed 'victims' of this (all too common) fault with many post 2006 laptops (not only Dell). This is the third such experience I've had myself with the same total failure, since 2012!
So, quick solution (so I thought earlier yesterday): I went on ebay and bought a new laptop which I thought was identical, however I've since discovered the (newer) one I just purchased on ebay for $400.00 is not exactly the same as the model that just self-converted into a doorstop.

Before replacing the system, it's common for the short circuit (which is what you're seeing when the LED turns off) can commonly be a DC jack:

If replacing that doesn't work, what you want to do SHOULD work but:
1.  Turn OFF secure boot if it was on with the older system.
2.  Make sure the drive SATA mode (AHCI, RAID) matches the one on the faulty system.
3.  You may have to re-activate Windows when you boot the drive in the new system.

Hello,

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 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.

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.)

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!

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.

Hi,
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.
Please, help me to solve my problem. Thank in advance!
I have Windows 10, BIOS 1.9.4, Dell Multi-Touch Touchpad Driver 10.1207.101.113 A06

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.

Sorry guys,
I cant find anyplace else to post this, last Sunday my Latitude D 620 started right clickeing by itself all the time, I replaced the "Palm Rest" which includes the touch pad and buttons and it still is doing it.
I tried a hard drive that was working perfectly that I removed two months ago because I wanted a bigger one and it does the same thing , so it cant be a viris or malware.
Has anyone ever seen this before?
 

A:Dell Latitude D620: Right click keeps clicking

The palm rest or keyboard data (flat ribbon small cable) is not pushed in all the way
I usually use tweazers (or tiny electronic pliers) and hold and push it in, then lock in the side clamps

Hi,
I newly got a Dell Latitude E7470 laptop, It was perfect until I discovered this weird issue.
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).
Troubleshoot:

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.
Zeke

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. 
I need to do a CPU fan replacement on an E6430. What other CPU fans will work with the E6430 other than the one that specifically came with it? The reason I'm asking is that I need to get one IMMEDIATELY, and all of the ones I'm finding will take too long to get. So, I'm wondering if it's possible to use one from a different model of laptop. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.   :-) 

A:Which CPU Fans can be used with the Latitude E6430 ?

Best bet is to get an exact replacement - and the assembly you need depends on whether you have integrated or discrete video.

I have a Latitude E6430 that isn't charging. When I plug it in, the battery indicator lights up for a few seconds, but then goes out. The battery wont charge off of the built in port or through the docking station. I have a Dell 90 watt power adapter, but I have also tried a 130 watt one; neither work. It runs quite happily off of the adapter, but won't charge.
I updated the BIOS to A18. Is this an issue with my main board?

A:Latitude E6430 Not Charging

Check system setup (F2 at powerup).  Des the system sense the AC adapter correctly, or does it show unknown?  If unknown, the system will run but the battery will not charge.
In that case, since you've already tried a new adapter to no effect, the next possibility is a bad DC jack:

If replacing that doesn't solve the problem, it is a faulty mainboard.
