IBM sold a mouse with a pointing stick in the location where a scroll wheel is common now. Sir, I tried all those driver. Thank you for working on this. In this case the generic Microsoft driver is used. On certain Toshiba Libretto mini laptops, the pointing stick was located next to the display.

McLaughlin’s post on August 6, To find the x64 folder with the drivers:.

Some users feel that pointing sticks cause less wrist strain because a user does not need to avoid resting wrists on a touchpad, usually located just below the keyboard [ citation needed ].

The mouse pause happens with a MS Bluetooth Mouse or the touch pad on the machine. Since ThinkPad computers have a nub that is responsive to pressure in a direction, and there is a patent for this, [ citation needed ] other companies have made it so a person has to move the finger a large distance tocuhpad/pointing cause the nub to rock from side to side in a much less efficient way.

The latest version is A11, available on the Precision M Windows 7 bit download page:. I imagine it’s a hardware thing as well as a software one Select let me pick from a list of touchpad/ponting drivers on my computer:. DawnSchoenfeld Replied on August 20, This is because a user’s finger may run toufhpad/pointing the edge of a touchpad while positioning the pointer, requiring them to reposition their finger in order to continue. In reply to DCJ’s post on August 16, Hopefully the disconnect as you put it will be fixed in a windows update.

On the Gestures tab I turned Gestures off. This driver is unbranded, which is nice. I dont want to use Dell’s one, I am woring on E The cap is red on ThinkPads, but is also found in other colours on other machines. One criticism is that because the pointing stick depends on the user’s applying pressure, it can cause hand cramps although this can be partly solved by setting the sensitivity higher and lifting the finger when the pointer is not being moved.

The mouse buttons can be operated right-handed or left-handed due to their placement below the keyboard along the centerline. Sir, I tried all those driver.

Scrolling with touchpad (ALPS drivers) won’t work

In a large number of cases the driver will not be installed and Windows 10 will still continue to use its generic driver. Posted December 7, This seems to be ideal for external mice, although for my Logitech mice, I do use SetPoint and don’t have SetPoint set to override the Windows Mouse settings. I have already tried the original driver which is offered on the dell website: I’m certain my drivers are up-to-date since my touchpad worked perfectly before the upgrade.


It would seem to me that the core resident processes are a bit smaller and less Syick hungry than the old 5. The Dell driver set allows setting “acceleration” for the pointing stick and “speed” for the trackpad. Posted April 16, edited.

Pointing stick

This feature is disabled by default but can be enabled via a checkbox on the Devices tab in the Touchpad. This isn’t so bad since Windows 7 sleeps and resumes so quickly.

I appreciate any other option like regedit or gpedit or something from you to solve my problem. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. However the recalibration can also allow brief periods of ‘drifting’ movement of the cursor while the user is not moving the pointing stick.
