Dell Touchpad Drivers

Please note I am an individual, not Dell and not an organisation and as a consequence don’t have access to all Dell Hardware to test.

Introduction

This guide is for older Dell Systems (<2016 Hardware). Going forward there is a future push for Microsoft to natively support new Touchpads, so called “Precision Touchpads” which should alleviate any OEM driver issues.

There have been numerous Touchpad issues with the release of Windows 8.x and Windows 10 primarily due to drivers.

  • Windows 10 will install a generic driver from 2006 which will in most cases give the Touchpad limited functionality.
  • Although the Windows Vista/Windows 7 driver for the Touchpad is customised for the Touchpad, it often won’t install properly with Windows 10 rejecting the driver and preferring its own generic one.
  • Newer driver releases, in many cases the last iteration of Windows 10 Touchpad drivers released often work with older Touchpads although they are not designed for the specific Touchpad in question.
  • In most cases the installer will reject the hardware, therefore one has to force install the Driver via the Device Manager.

This is an unofficial guide and covers a large range of hardware so unfortunately finding the best driver it is quite “experimental”. Fortunately however this unofficial guide is well-reached and many Dell customers have tested and reported the best driver for their system.

Please comment on your findings so I can update the list at the bottom which is populated by other people’s testing on their models.

List of Dell Touchpad Driver Versions (by Vendor):

Alps and Synaptics are the most common vendors.

1. Extract the Driver

Download the suggested driver (if no driver is suggested then look at your Drivers and Downloads page and determine if the driver is Synaptics or Alps and try the latest version).

Extraction of the Driver depends on the Driver Package. For the Newer Driver Packages you should use the .exe to Extract the Driver to a specified folder. For the Older Driver Packages it is often better to use 7zip to extract the driver.

Variant A (Newer Driver Package)

Double click the driver:

16

Accept the User Account Control:

uac

Select Extract:

17

Select Downloads and make a new folder, call it Touchpad:

18 19

Select ok and then close:

20

Go to the Downloads folder and select the extracted Touchpad folder:

21

Look for the 64 Bit folder (assuming you’re using 64 Bit Windows 10):

22

Select the address of the Download location and right click it then left click copy:

23

Variant B (Older Driver Package)

Note if you do not see a separate x64 or x86 and only see a .exe after extracting. You may have to further extract using a utility like 7zip (I advise 7zip version 9.20 because it works better in my testing):

25

Then you can look in the extracted folder:

26

To find the x64 folder with the drivers:

27 28

You can then copy this address like before:

29

2. Force Install the Driver via the Device Manager

For best results remove any USB mouse attached to the system.

Right click the Start Button and Select Device Manager:

Expand Mice and other Pointing Devices

Select “PS/2 Compatible mouse” or “Dell Touchpad” or any other similar devices and then right click and select properties:

Select the Driver tab

You will be told the driver version and date. In this case the generic 2006 Microsoft driver is used.

You can attempt to install the driver normally and then recheck the version in the Device Manager. In a large number of cases the driver will not be installed and Windows 10 will still continue to use its generic driver.

To amend this select update driver…

Select Browse my computer for driver software:

Select let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer:

Select Have Disk:

Paste in the 64 Bit extracted location then select open:

Select ok:

Left click the Dell Touchpad and select next:

Accept yes at the warning:

The driver will install:

Select close:

 

Select yes to restart:

Right click the Start Button and Select Device Manager:

Expand Mice and other Pointing Devices and look for Dell Touchpad. Look for an ! mark.

If no ! is present right click it and select Properties:

Select Driver. You will see the driver version of the Touchpad has now been updated:

14

If there is an ! then the driver has not taken and must be uninstalled. If the Touchpad is not-responsive or erratic you may need to plug in a USB mouse to do this.

Right click Dell Touchpad and select Uninstall:

Ensure to check “Delete the Driver Software for this Device” then select Uninstall:

Retry with an older version of the driver.

3. Test the Touchpad!

Right click the Start Button and select Settings:

Select Devices:

Select Touchpad:

Amend the settings to your preferences and play around with your Touchpad to see how it works and how stable it is…

I would appreciate it if you left feedback in the comments on what Touchpad driver works best for you in your system.

  1. hi, i’m using dell vostro 3458 and which is the best driver that is compatible with my laptop. I couldn’t figure it out and it’s not working on my laptop which i preinstalled

  2. What is the best for Inspiron 5558, note that i installed the official one and it’s working but with no extra features (like scroll, multi-touch, etc…)
    thanks

  3. Synaptics Touchpad – 19.15.2 Windows 10 64 Bit — not installing on vostro 3450 (Windows 10 enterprise x64). It just say installed successfully but it doesn’t install actually. Plz help.

  4. Dell Precision M6500.
    After update from Win7 to Win10 driver do not work correctly.
    Which driver I can use?

    1. I’m not too sure and don’t have that model, you will need to try the Synaptics versions in a bit of trial and error. Dell are unlikely to release a new driver for that model.

  5. Sir, I am confuse about suitable version for my laptop. Can you please help me to find out the right one?
    Laptop model: Dell vostro 3450
    OS: Windows 10 Enterprise (x64)
    I am facing scrolling problem on metro apps, MS edge and start menu with the version Synaptics Touchpad 15.3.2.1. It worked perfectly on windows 8.1 enterprise (x64).
    I tried some of the very latest versions from your given list but not installed.

    1. This is just a list of the Synaptics drivers from Dell, you will need to try them in a trial and error as I don’t have all the Dell laptops to personally test what works.

      1. Sir, I tried all those driver. Only 14.0.2 to 16.4.0.4 version installed on my laptop. Other versions (16.6.13.0 to 19.15.2) didn’t install even in compatibility mode. In the end, those drivers couldn’t solve my problem. I appreciate any other option (like regedit or gpedit or something) from you to solve my problem. Thank you.

    2. I also have dell vostro 3450 with winows 10 enterprise. But non of those drivers worked for me. Everything is working except mutitouch genstures. Are you having issue with normal funcions or is it just gestures for you too.

  6. My Alps Touchpad on a Dell E6420 ATG with Windows 8.1 works well with driver version 7.1208.101.124. I Tried some newer drivers (don’t remember the versions), but they didn’t als well as this driver from 2011.

  7. how can I found out if the dell d830 touchpad is defect or not? I have a Dell D830 but I cannot get the touchpad working. I have already tried the original driver which is offered on the dell website: Versie 7.1.102.7,A03

    And also the driver that is mentioned as the latest driver which is confirmed to be working with this older model. 7.102.101.224

    Both did not solve the issue. In device manager, the touchpad is under the ‘hidden devices’. Wich a yello exclamation mark. The problem is code 28: the device is not working properly, or not all drivers are installed.

    I would like to fix this, instead of buying another used touchpad from ebay. (I am trying to make this notebook ready for people who do not have the money to buy a computer themself.

    1. Boot to a Linux Live DVD and see if the touchpad works there. If it does its a Windows issue if it doesn’t its likely defective.

    2. Alps TouchPad – 8.1200.101.217 – Windows 10 32/64 Bit Worked fo me on a D830 Windows 10 64. The scrolling wasn’t working on 10.1207.101.102 – Windows 10 32/64 Bit

  8. Dell XPS 13 2012 (L321x)
    Cypress Touchpad – 5.5.1.72 Windows 10 (Dell list as 2.5.1.72) works like a dream.

    Thank you so much for saving me from installing CAB drivers myself.

    1. Same for me, XPX 13 (L321X) with Cypress Touchpad works perfectly after installation of “Cypress Touchpad – 5.5.1.72 Windows 10 (Dell list as 2.5.1.72)” (see list above). Before installation there was no pointer at all after installation of Windows 10. Thanks for the brilliant list.

  9. You are a life saver! •Cypress Touchpad – 5.5.1.72 Windows 10 works for me (XPS)

  10. for dell vostro 1450 model windows 10 which driver would be better for me?
    can u help me to choose the suitable driver ??

  11. Latitude E6510 – Used 8.1206.101.118. Issue was that scrolling on the right side of the touchpad didn’t work out of the box with the Windows 10 update. With this driver I’m happy; the scrolling does not work the same, but now anywhere on the pad with 2 fingers. I’ll get used to this. Thanks for this site.

  12. Hi,
    I have an acer gateway laptop with windows 10 in it, my question is will synaptics 19.15.2 Windows 10 64 Bit work on my laptop(since its from an other manufacturer).

    1. The latest driver that works is a bit of trial and error in Dell systems.

      For your Acer honestly I don’t know as I don’t have any non-Dell systems.

  13. For my DELL XPS M1330, running Windows 10 Pro final release, the “Synaptics Touchpad – 16.2.21 Windows 7 32 Bit” suits perfect even in modern apps Scrolling works like a charm.
    (…after days of testing…and many cups of coffee…)

    1.Step: If another Synaptics driver is installed, uninstall it and reboot system to get it clean!
    2.Step: Right click “setup.exe” and select “Solving compatibility problems”
    3.Step: Install version above by clicking “Test settings…” and after setup save compatibility settings and reboot your system again
    4.Step: After reboot in the settings activate h-/ and v-scrolling.
    5.Step: Enjoy!
    Good luck!

    Btw: This driver doesn’t suit only Win7-32 but also Win7-64/Win8-32/Win8-64.

  14. hi sir,
    i have dell inspiron 15 3542 with windows 8.1… i was finding better touchpad driver for my laptop. i downloaded Synaptics Touchpad – 18.1.48.1 Windows 7 and 8.1 32/64 Bit from your website and it worked for me. thanks a lot sir 🙂

  15. Thanks for posting links to the drivers. The 10.1207.101.102 version was installed on a Latitude E5410 successfully. Manual installation, where I selected the specific driver and location (“Have Disk,” etc.) was utilized (automated setup did not change driver). Alps Touchpad was hanging after Windows 10 was installed — no hanging since Alps 10.1207.101.102 driver was installed.

    1. Strange I could only get 10.1206.101.118 to install on a Latitude E5510 (I would have suspected the E5410 to be the same).

  16. This worked for me. Windows 10 Inspiron 1545. 8.1200.101.217 – Windows 10 32/64 Bit

    1. Thanks I’ve updated the information, does 8.1206.101.115 not also work? I had it on a E5510 so would expect the E5520 to also accept it.

  17. i am not able to find touchpad driver for dell 3524 inspiron for windows 10 32bit please help

    1. E6410 Touchpad driver for win8.x, Win10.x from driver version 8 onwards has a problem… Triple step disable touchpad, pointer stick and both is not working on fn+F5. It just disables the touchpad on single step, without disabling pointer stick. Also the gui on fn+F5 is not displayed.

      Dell Windows 7 (7.1208.101.116) is working perfectly.

    2. Corroborating. Dell e6410: 64bit Alps; Version: 10.1207.101.109; Driver Date: 10/5/2015. No more lag or lack of response from touchpad. Thank you.

  18. I have DELL Insprion 15 5558 Core I5. I have problem with dell touchpad i can not update or install dell touchpad driver

  19. E6410 upgraded from 7 Pro 64 bit to 10 Pro. The ALPS 10.1207.101.102 for Win10 does not install. I am using the latest Win8 driver 8.1206.101.118 which works but scrolls slowly and jerky in Windows File Explorer.

  20. The 8.1200.101.209 – Windows 8 32/64 Bit works for my Dell Inspiron 1464 running Windows 10 Pro 64x

  21. My Dell XPS 15 (L521X) didn’t recognize multi-finger gestures after upgrading to Windows 10. The update process had installed the first Synaptic driver for 64-bit Win10. I installed the second one (v.19.0.15.2), which is listed above. Everything works fine now.

  22. Inspiron 15 5547 Synaptics Touchpad driver, Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 8.1.

    Windows Update forced an install of 19.0.15.2 which works but all the gestures are changed from what I had before, disabling the functionality I wanted. Unable to change gesture functions in this driver to what I was using. I uninstalled it and reinstalled 18.0.5.4 which had been working fine and gave me the gestures I wanted, this restored my gesture functions. The next reboot the ignorant Windows Update again installed 19.0.15.2. So now I have Touchpad with useless gesture functions. No info from Dell as to who did this, was it them? Microsoft? Synaptics? All I know is this is the most ignorant thing I have seen yet related to Windows Updates. Time to revisit Linux distros if this is what the future of Windows looks like. DO NOT TOUCH MY SETTINGS YOU IDIOTS!!!!!

  23. hi, i need your help guys, im thinking of trying out some third party driver for my trackpad (Dell 7548), in windows 10 x64 flatform, which do you think is the best? thanks in advance @philipyip

    2. do you think work

  25. When reinstalling Dell Synaptics touchpad enhancements or Dell’s OEM versions has anyone else found an unsigned driver file in Device Manager keyboard driver files that is identified as “synaptics” but doesn’t register when run sigverif.exe ??? Possible Keylogger or just a harmless anomaly !!

  26. Synaptics Touchpad – 15.3.2.1 Windows 7 64 Bit WORKS FOR MY DELL XPS M1330 RUNNING WINDOWS 10 PRO

  27. Vostro 3558 – I recently was given one of these that had been updated to Windows 10, and the touchpad could not be disabled. Using your site, and the drivers listed “Synaptics Touchpad – 19.15.2 Windows 10 64 Bit”, I was able to get it working. But, no amount of straight installation worked. Eventually, I had to use the ‘extract’ option of the installer, and then manually update the driver through Device Manager. After that, it worked like a charm, and I got the missing “disable touchpad while USB mouse is connected” option I desperately needed.

    1. Great! thanks for letting me know that extraction and update via the device manager worked. I’ve added it to the list above.

    2. I cannot get any driver to work on my Vostro 3558. I have tried the “Synaptics Touchpad – 19.15.2 Windows 10 64 Bit” in both “INSTALL” and “EXTRACT” (with Device Manager). It just tell me the “best software for your device is already installed. The installed driver is the default PS/2 Compatible Mouse” from 2006. Any suggestions?

    1. edit : Doesn’t work 🙁
      Starting to have blue screens, trying lower versions now

  28. Dell inspiron 5520 – Elantech touchpad – windows 10 64-bit – works well
    Thanks

  29. Alps Touchpad – 8.1206.101.104 – Windows 7/8.1 32/64 Bit
    Working with Dell D520 on Win10.
    Newer versions don’t work.

  30. After Windows 10 upgrade on an Dell Inspiron N5010 Audio no longer works, only headphones. Help! Any solution yet? Flo

  31. On 10/6/2015 I downloaded Alps Touchpad Driver 8.1200.101.217 onto a Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop and it works like a charm. All of the old functionality … including disabling the touchpad … works perfectly. Many thanks to Philip Yip for getting me back to the performance I previously enjoyed.

  32. DELL XPS 14Z, Windows 10 64 Bit. Works with this driver.
    Synaptics Touchpad -16.6.13.0 Windows 7 64 Bit
    Thank you so much!

  33. Works great on
    Dell Latitude D630 Running Windows 10 64 bit.
    8.1200.101.217 – Windows 10 32/64 Bit

  34. After many many weeks of testing, I finally found the right Touchpad driver for my XPS Studio 1555 running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    The “latest” driver on the Dell support site – for Windows 7 – is 14.0.2, but Dell specifically stated that the laptop is NOT tested for Windows 10

    I tried the drivers from the Synaptics website (none worked). The touchpad worked but I *really* wanted 2-finger gesture scrolling support.

    I tried versions 19.x.x, 18.x.x and 15.x.x from this website – no luck. Finally, I installed 16.6.13.0 and viola! 2-finger gesture works again! I did notice that there is a slight deal with the left mouse click button, but it’s something I can live with. I’ll try tweaking the settings to see if I could fix it.

  35. Glad I found this site. Running a Dell Latitude 5420A with an Alps touchpad and Windows 10 32-bit. The touchpad was sticking badly since the OS upgrade, but the Alps Touchpad – 8.1206.101.118 – Windows 7/8.1 32/64 Bit driver seems to have fixed this. Thank you so much for the page and the driver!

  36. I just discovered this site. Guess I was looking for some sort of help and/or direction just days after the Windows 10 release. Running a Latitude 5420A with an Alps touchpad. Incidentally, I used to own 2 Alps printers back 12 years or so ago. Loved them when they worked! Sort of the same deal here.

  37. dell inspiron 3542, windows 10 pro
    device manager does not show PS/2 compatible mouse
    what to do?

  38. Thank you for the link to download the updated Cypress track pad driver for Windows 10. This one: 5.5.1.72 Windows 10 (Dell list as 2.5.1.72) (Link: http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER03187577M/1/Input_Driver_VYVMP_WN32_2.5.1.72_A00.EXE ) worked for me on my Dell XPS 13 ultrabook (2012), running Windows 10 after upgrading from Windows 7. The two-finger, three finger menus are now back! And it no longer freezes up like before.

    1. synaptics 15.3.2.1 works like a charm for xps m1330 win10 64 bit…just follow as prompted…no need for any needed procedure..thank you
