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

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

Microsoft have addressed many of these issues and going forward Microsoft will natively support new Touchpads, so called "Precision Touchpads" which should alleviate any OEM driver issues.

For older Dell Systems (<2016 Hardware) however:

  • 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 read instructions on how to forcefully install a driver via the device manager and then look below to see if a driver has been tested on your model. If your model hasn't been tested then you need to be experimental (you want to find the newest driver that works for your model).

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.

Installing a Driver via the Device Manager

List of Dell Touchpad Driver Versions (by Vendor) Alps, Synaptics, Cypress and ElanTech. Alps and Synaptics are the most common vendors.

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

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.

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. I wasn't able to install the newest Alps driver either. Version 8.1200.101.214 worked for me. My machine is labeled D820, but BIOS says D830, and the D830 BIOS update worked. Thank you for this page!

  2. I found that the TouchPad_ALPS_8.100.2020.205_W81x64_A.zip works best with my dell latitude e6410 on windows 8.1 x64. enertia works for pointing and scrolling which is what I wanted. plus 1 finger scrolling AND 2 finger scrolling.

    1. Thanks for the feedback can you tell me where you got the driver from? I can't see that version on the Dell website but can see it on Acer and Levenos.

  3. I got version 8.1206.101.104 to install on the Dell Latitude D820. The driver version in the device manager is still at 7.102.101.223 however.

    1. Its an Alps Touchpad for that model try the latest driver at the top and check the version in the device manager after installation.

      1. sir i donwnloaded Alps Touchpad – 8.1206.101.104 – Windows 7/8.1 32/64 Bit but its not working . still my scrolling not working .

      2. sir it showing an error message while i am installing . "a problem occured installing this package"

    2. As a note, the .134 doesn't want to even run on my Win 8.1 It complains that it is incompatible while trying to install drivers after unpacking and bombs out.

      8.1200.101.134 installed fine, and works better than the windows default (treating it like a PS/2 mouse with no options), but causes occasional long freezes (2-3 seconds) where the cursor decides not to respond to the trackpad. These are intermittent and tend to occur when lots of events are firing (e.g., opening multiple tabs in a browser). Trying .214 next…

      1. Sorry, had that first one as a typo. It was the 7.102.101.224 that did not work at all on Win 8.1, at least for the installer.

  4. but sir version: 7.102.101.224 will work on windows 8.1 ? i have windows 8.1 operating system .

    1. Give it a try.

      Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 are almost the same and drivers should work on both. Let me know how it goes. 🙂

      1. I don't use any online driver checking application. The drivers mentioned installed fine on my Latitude D820 which is an older model than yours.

  5. sir its very hard to install . i dont have more knowledge about this :'(
    can you sujest any online driver checking application .

  6. Hi,
    got a Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 laptop, I'm using an official Alps Dell Touchpad drivers from here: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=TK588&fileid=2731101988
    Touchpad was always working ok on this drivers, but recently it's stopped.
    Now I'm experiencing exactly the same behaviour like you can see on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y79H00oicFE
    I've tried everything: uninstalling and reinstalling drivers (also drivers from this site), a clean install of windows, etc.
    Still no good.
    Sometimes, when i reboot my system, touchpad is working fine again but not for long.
    Does anybody got a working solution for this?

    PS. Sorry for my bad english.

  7. which driver I should download for my dell inspiron 14r-4110.?? please help.

  8. 8.1200.101.217 works perfectly with D630 and Windows 8.1 64bit. By default touch scroll is disabled. Right click on the tray icon brings up configuration that controls everything related to the touchpad and the pointing stick.

    1. Thank you, I had tried several other drivers till I saw your posting. 8.1200.101.217 worked perfectly on my Dell D630 – even though I'm running Windows 10 Technical Preview!

    2. Thank you for your post, 8.1200.101.217 worked perfectly on my D630 – even though I'm running the Windows 10 Technical Preview, Build 9860. Should there be future problems, I'll post back here.

      1. The 8.1200.101.217 still works for my Dell D630 running Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 9926

  9. The ALP 8.1200.101.214 driver download worked for Dell Vostro 1015 Windows 8 to give basic up/down, side to side scrolling. I also tried 104,134,129 but they all failed. Thanks.

  10. I'm looking for a Synaptics driver AND software for the XPS M1330 WIN 8.1 64bit that supports 2 touch scroll and 3 touch program start-up. I have found one that almost works, but it's just to annoying and half assed as far as reliability goes(works superb in WIN 7 32bit Version 15.2.4.4 12/15/2010 (WinXP/Vista/Win7/Linux). The file name is sp51498 and is about 93mb in size..).. Super annoying that the latest driver for Synaptics own site is a no go on m1330 and WIN 8.1… Grr!!

    1. Hey Einar! You just saved me with this link. =p
      It was the only driver which really worked for my XPS 15 with Windows 8.1 installed.
      Thank you so much!

    2. Hey Einar! You just saved me with this link. =p
      This was the only driver which really worked for my XPS 15 with Windows 8.1 installed.
      Thank you so much!

    3. Thanks a lot. It is the only driver that works properly in my dell xps 15 for windows 10

    4. Oh god, man i tried hundreds of drivers. this is the only one that works properly. on my Inspiron 5558 Windows 10
      Thank you for saving my life 🙂

    5. My God, Einar, I have been searching an eternity for the driver for my Dell XPS 15 touchpad. Thanks!!!

  11. Hi. I've an Inspiron 15 3000 series and I struggle to get a driver working for the touchpad. When I try to install Synaptics software, it works but two minutes, then becomes erratic.
    Any ideas what to do, what to download ?

  12. mine is a Dell Inspiron 3521… none of the above drivers work. can I get the right one.

  13. Thank you so much for this page. I have been looking for wireless drivers and this site helped me find one to restore my wireless drivers. Good guy, thank you.

  14. Any idea which touchpad driver is appropriate for a Dell Inspiron 13 7347 (2014)? I have the Signature Edition which has a generic mouse driver installed and the MS Store guy told me if I wanted more control over its functionality I needed to get an appropriate driver.

  15. Dell Inspiron 1525 Windows 7 x64 worked with Alps 8.1200.101.214. I tried .104 first, but it wouldn't work.

  16. Hey, I have a Dell Studio XPS 1640, bought in 2010, and I recently installed Windows 8.1 with Media Center on it. I got some basic driverrs through the Windows Update, like my graphics driver, but not my touchpad driver. I tried a few drivers from the Dell website for the Windows 7 OS but those didn't have any effect. I also tried the first Synaptics Touchpad – 18.0.1 Windows 7 and 8.1 64 Bit – that you have listed but that didn't work either. I also tried to update it by searching automatically using the Device Manager. Am I doing something wrong? Can you suggest the best possible driver for my laptop?

    1. No, you aren't doing anything wrong. Going beyond the original OS is a trial and error process. I've had my D630, built in 2009 for Windows XP, for two years and it took two years of trial and error to find the 'correct' driver. I say 'correct' because there is technically no driver that fits my D630 for Windows 7 since that's an unsupported OS.

  17. Hi All,
    I've just installed "Cypress – XPS15 windows8.1" and it's work! for my DELL XPS13 with Windows 8.1(64bit) after tried so hard to resolve touchpad. (updated windows 8.1, double fingers to scrolling is doesn't work.) so, massive thanks sir. I can enjoy my XPS now. 🙂

      1. FTW, this is the driver that I got to work on my Windows 7, Home Premium on Dell D630. Hope this helps someone.

        C:\dell\Alps_Touchpad_W8_X02_A01_Setup-W71Y8_ZPE.exe

        > WordPress.com >

      2. I've also tried the "Cypress – XPS15 windows8.1" (v 2.5.3.65) on a XPS 13 L321x, and the user hasn't reported any issues so far (2 weeks now), so it -seems- like this works. I'll post an update if anything shows up. I've been trying to solve this issue with Dell ProSupport, and they where not able to figure this one out, so, thx! (I'll let them know)

        Apparently the current recommended cypress driver for the L321x on the Dell website (v 2.5.1.65) causes problems on Windows 8.1. One note: the driver download page contains no drivers for 8.1, only for 7 and 8. Strange, for a laptop that was released in the same year that windows 8.1 was released.

        We also have an XPS13 9333, and that runs fine with 8.1.

  18. 7.1209.101.217. This one worked worked for my dell inspiron 1420 win7 64 bit laptop

    1. Thanks for this reply! This one worked great as well on my Inspiron 1545!

  19. Thanks a lot !
    Alps Touchpad – 7.102.101.224 Windows 7 32/64 Bit for my Dell Latitude D520 with Windows 7

  20. Alps Touchpad – 7.1209.101.217 Windows 7 32 Bit/64 Bit worked for Dell D630 Thanks!!

  21. DELL Inspiron 17" Series 5000 (5749). Win 8.1 OEM removed and manually installed Win 7 64 bit Ultimate. Drivers download from DELL install succesfully but after reboot Synaptics error saying it stopped working.
    http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=C3XGM

    Tried from this page:
    Touchpad_Driver_Synaptics_A08_WIN7_WIN864_WIN8164-SETUP_ZPE.exe
    Same as above

    and again from this page:
    Synaptic_TP_W74_X01_A00_Setup-YKT9W_ZPE.exe
    this time working correctly but there is no option to enable secondary click with two fingers.

    Can you help please?
    Many thanks in advance.

  22. A quick note on Windows 10 pre-release / evaluation, builds 9841 and 9926. I have a Dell D810 and I was able to install without any problems or issues the Dell Alps 7.1209.101.217 touchpad driver. I have not extensively tested all of the functions of this driver as the only thing that I really use is to disable the "tap" feature. The icon on the bottom works as expected and my guess is the other functions would work as expected. So based on this, it looks like I will be able to continue to use W10 on my laptop. All other Windows features and functions (hardware specific) already were working. Thanks for the extensive list.

  23. http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails?driverId=5NMGT&fileId=2731127774
    for evryone who need a working touchpad driver for windows 8.1 for dell inspiron 1420, this is the working driver i have test, just download it and extract then it will say not compatible, but dont worry just extract it then go to device manager then update the touchpad driver to the folder you extract the file, it will work trust me, but before that just make sure to update the bios to a10 version, only work and tested with dell inspiron 1420, try it at your own risk, hope this helps who need it

  24. Dell inspiron 1545 running windows 8.1. Tried these all going down and 8.1200.101.217 was the most recent one to work. Hope this helps!

  25. which one suits for dell vostro 1000 windows 8.1 x64?? can it stop the cursor jumping all around the screen??

  26. the driver Synaptics Touchpad – 18.0.1 works great on my xps m1530 with Windows 8.1. even the scrolls work.
    Awesome website by the way. Thank a lot.

    1. Great, glad you have found my website useful. 🙂 Thanks for leaving a comment to let others know what version works best in that model.

  27. I have got an oldie in the form of Inspiron 1525. Just installed Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit and made the touchpad (ALPS version) work like a charm (up&down and side scrolling included) with the 8.1200.101.214. You just need to use the Mouse applet from under Devices and Printers menu in Control Panel to make necessary adjustments.

  28. Dell XPS 15z using the Cyprus Touchpad Driver has terrible corruption when using hdmi. I can't even use a second screen anymore

  29. On Inspiron 17 5000 (5749), Win8.1 x64 the Synaptics touchpad WORKS but settings cannot be modified in "Control Panel/Mouse/Dell Touchpad".
    I'don't see any tray-icon related to the touchpad (with driver 18.1.16)!
    This issue is still here since I bought the laptop!!!

    Not an HW issue because I've changed the touchpad but no results… I've just tried 18.1.34.34 and some older drivers by DELL but no results at all ….. Windows is up-to-date, .Net framework installed, JAVA installed.

    SOME DETAILS OF MY TRIES…:
    -"DellTPad.exe" when manually executed shows a Windows error (… program has stopped working…) on every clic above the settings buttons;
    -"DellTouchpad.exe" when manually executed remains hidden (nothing appears);
    -"DellTouchpad35.exe" when manually executed sometimes opens: I can see all the driver settings and I can modify gestures but….. NO EFFECT ON THE TOUCHPAD!
    -in control panel. the touchpad driver version is the one I've installed (18.1.16 or 18.1.34.34), not a MS Update driver, I think….
    -I've disabled Driver Sign Force option
    -I've disabled fast boot and safe boot options

    Can you help me please? 🙂

  30. Hello, first I would like to thank you, Philip Yip, for this collection of Dell computers' drivers.
    I'm using Windows 7 64-bit on Dell Inspiron 6400 or more precisely E1505 – best laptop in the universe! I've been working for 2 years without Synaptics Touchpad driver, because previous one was getting on my nerves so I've simply deleted it. But today I've decided to find a new driver.

    First I've tried with generic one, found on the official site and V18.1.34.34 for Windows 7 and 8.1 64 Bit. I installed both of them on my computer but I couldn't find where the drivers were installed. There was no sign of any modification. I tried restarting computer and I searched for any new files that should have been created, but I had no luck. Then I tried installing V16.6.13.0 for Windows 7 64 Bit and after restarting computer it started working perfectly.
    A note: Actually in version.txt file after extracting the archive, there is written that the version of the driver is 17.0.6 and in Synaptics Gesture Suite there is written that the Driver Version is 16.6.4.13 04Jun13.

    After driver was enabled I have some problems adapting from touchpad buttons to tapping feature, because when pressing a button, the poitner mow starts sliding if I'm holding my finger near the edges of touchpad. But instead I really like circular scrolling option. Everyone should check it out!

  31. Installed the "Cypress Touchpad – XPS 15x Windows 8.1" on my XPS13 L321x and it's working perfect. Thank you kind stranger!

      1. i have tried many drivers for dell e6400 on or window 8.1 pro 64bit but unable to found

    My system is Dell Vostro 1700 Win 7/64 ultimate
    This driver does the job: Alps touch pad 7.102.101.101 Windows 7 32/64 Bit

  38. Dell Latitude D520 windows 8.1 64 bit works with driver Alps Touchpad – 8.1206.101.104 – Windows 7/8.1 32/64 Bit tanks

  39. After dozens of Uninstalls, Installs and reboots….none worked for me…My system : inspiron 1525…Tried all the Alps driver, shall I try others too? Can anyone help?

    1. Try the driver 7.1007.115.102 which is the Dell Windows Vista driver for this model. As the driver was released in 2010 is should also support Windows 7 even if Dell explicitly state Windows 7 under compatible Operating Systems.

      1. Hi philpyip,

        I already tried it couple of times, but to no avail. Do I need to delete the specific registry entry and then try it?

  40. 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

  41. 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

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  44. 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.

  45. 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.

  46. 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

  47. 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.

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

  49. Thank you so much. 7.1209.101.217 works on my Inspiron 1545 in Windows 10. When I upgraded, I lost the ability to scroll, but this driver got it back. Yay!

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

  51. 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.

  52. 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.

  53. 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.

    1. thanks for this! works perfectly on my m1330 xps of 8 or so years 🙂

  54. 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 🙂

  55. 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).

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

      1. Alps 8.1200.101.217 is meant to work with Windows 10 64 Bit on that model.

        What problem do you have?

    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.

  57. 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.

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

  59. 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.

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

  61. 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.

  62. 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!!!!!

  63. 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
      I tried many times then he is appear but when i'm doing settings and apply it its gone

  65. 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 !!

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

  67. 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

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

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

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

  71. 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.

  72. 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!

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

  74. 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.

  75. 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!

  76. 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.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I don't know of a Latitude 5420a, just wan to confirm do you mean a Latitude E5420?

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

  78. 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

  79. Thank you very much!!!
    It worked with my Inspiron 1464 – Windows 10 64 Bit.
    Easily download the file and lauch it. Restart (and wait) and the issue is solved.

  80. Hi,

    I have the XPS 15 9530, the latest Synaptic drivers (Synaptics Touchpad – 19.15.2 Windows 10 64 Bit) work but not without problems. If I put the laptop to sleep, the Windows 10 gestures not longer work like their suppose to. For instance, 3 finger swipe up no longer brings up Task View, it instead brings up cortana! Only way to resolve this is by rebooting. I'm grateful for anyone with a solution.

      1. Hi, I'm davide and I'm from italy… I've got the new xps 13 9350 and I performed a clean install of windows with no hassle thanks to your guide. the problem is: this machine has the new NVMe PCIe ssd technology and a sigle slot for ssd, the bios set the sata operation by default on RAID but I'm not sure this is the best way to get the most out of the new technology. In fact now I have very bad write performance, far less good then samsung official benchmarks. I also read about disabling the cache flushing option in device policy, but is it a safe move?
        and is letting windows update the drivers by himself after the clean install a good thing or will I loose some functionality or performance?

  81. I have the dell 15R 7520 with touchpad v15.3.0.14 installed. It worked for some time after which the erratic behavior started showing up. So I tried installing older versions(v11.3.10.2/ v11.3.15.4) Both works but gives the same problem after sometime. Can anyone suggest me the proper driver for my laptop? I am running windows 10 home single language.
    P.S – Now I can't even install the latest version touchpad(v15.3.0.14). An error pops up saying that the update installer operation was unsuccesfull.

    1. There has been some feedback that the newer drivers are not installing correctly (even on supported systems). You may need to do some advanced installation of the newer drivers, follow the instructions in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fy5sdukBhyo
      Try this with the newest version first 19.15.2 and then 19.0.9.4.

  82. Works on XPS 17 L702X using RedDragon's video as a guide. Windows 10 X64. Synaptics 19.0.15.2 using extract from download and update driver via Have disk method.

  83. Finally works scroll in Metro aplicatons and Edge, for Dell Vostro 3300!!! Is necessary have old Dell driver (15.1.2.3 for me) installed, not only Microsoft universal PS/2 driver. Touchpad works, but no scroll in system, Metro apps, Edge. Then download new Dell driver (19.0.15.2). x86 version I used after unpacking archive. No uninstall old Dell driver!!! Only install new driver from Device manager, manually put from Disk. After reboot, configure Dell touchpad. Still no scroll only one finger, but perfectly scroll with two fingers. After many months it works! Thanks for this webpage.

  84. For admin, repair please your comment: Vostro 3300 not 3330. And 32bit Win10, not 64 bit.

  85. I was using synaptics version 19.0.9.4 for windows 10 for my DELL XPS 15 L521X, but the curse kept freezing constantly. So I installed synaptics version 19.0.15.2

      1. Nope, re-tried it just for you, and no joy. The one listed above is the only one I can get to work. If you do find a more up to date one which will work please let me know. thanks 🙂

    1. As I state at the top this is a list of drivers and I do not have every single Dell model to test with. So the updated driver may or may not work 100 % correctly. No-ones left feedback for that model yet.

  86. Dell Inspiron E1505 (may apply to Inspiron 6400 also) running Windows 10 Pro 64bit. The only driver I've found that restores scroll functionality is "Synaptics TouchPad, v.13.2.2.2, A01" from file R230390.exe (07 Jul 2012). Still not able to open the Synaptics "Dell TouchPad Settings" utility to fine-tune it, but I can finally scroll again! You can download R230390.exe from http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=6RTR8 (direct: http://downloads.dell.com/input/R230390.exe)

  87. For Studio 1747, successfully installed latest Synaptics v 19.0.19.1 by downloading the PS2/SMBus package from the Synaptics website, unzipping it, and manually selecting the "Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad" device driver from "Update Driver" in Device Manager. This worked great even though it warned that it was not listed as compatible (due to the different Dell-specific Device ID). This gave me the best functionality (including two-fingered tapping) compared to previous versions. Confident it should work too for Studio 1745, possibly for other Studio laptops, and hopefully for other Dell Synaptics models.

  88. hi everybody

    i made these instructions from various places for myself and hopefully will help you

    firstly get the generic driver from synaptics or dell ect

    then go to device manager and go to the ps2 mouse and uninstall previous driver

    1) Extract the files to another folder

    2) Open the folder with extracted files copy the path of the x64 drivers

    3) Go to Control PanelDevice ManagerMice and other pointing devices

    4) Right click mice and other pointing devices, select Update Driver

    browse the computer

    then select HAVE DISK VERY IMPORTANT

    5) Add the x64 drivers path

    6) Select Dell Touchpad or synaptics

    7) Install drivers

    8) Restart
    ——————————————————————-

    but it probably wont work so

    so see here http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/help-needed-to-mod-a-generic-synaptics-driver-to-work-with-the-dell-xps-13-9343-will-gladly-pay.775614/page-2

    and here http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-tms/microsoft-precision-touchpad-not-very-precise/ca01bc04-0db7-4241-bff9-192cfb5af012?page=2&auth=1

    So what you need to do is:
    1. Disable PTP drivers
    2. Install generic drivers (force way)

    1. Disabling PTP drivers:
    Go to device manager and locate "Human interface devices" node (node means the little arrow which expands). Locate "HID-compliant touch pad" item and disable it. (To make sure, you may open device properties and on Details tab, in the dropdown go to Hardware IDs property will have this line HID_DEVICE_UP:000D_U:0005 – this is how TPT reports itself). (with mine i had a 4 instead of a 5
    Now, in the same node, disable "I2C HID Device" item.
    Done. PTP is dead.
    the mouse wont work so use touchscreen
    (i cant remember if i did a reboot here or not)

    2. Installing generic Synaptics drivers:
    Download generic Synaptics driver here: http://synaptics.com/en/drivers.php
    In device manager, go to "Mice and other pointing devices" node and locate your touchpad disguised as "PS/2 mouse". Select "Update driver" from context menu and make it hard way: "Browse my PC" – "Let me pick it myself" – "Have disk" – point to folder where you have unpacked downloaded driver into (x64 subfolder, to be precise). Windows will say that driver is not compatible. That's a lie. Press Yes. Reboot. You're on generic driver now. Scroll and 2/3/4-finger gestures are at your disposal.

    During phase #2 Windows may complain about missing digital signature at driver's package (Synaptics' fault). There are 2 ways to circumvent it:
    1. Disable driver signature enforcement (just google this whole phrase). This is easy but potentially creates security risk as from now any unsigned driver can be installed to the system.
    2. Sign it with a valid certificate if you have one (also requires installed WDK).
    I did mine by signing .inf file with my company's certificate, but I'm not sure if I can redistribute it.

    From my experience, precision of generic driver is inferior to PTP, but it's free of PTP bugs and offers all extended features Synaptics has to offer. Or maybe it just requires tweaking (it has so many parameters).

    ——————————————————————————————-

    now for chirascroll do this

    Requires use of regedit

    Navigate to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTPCpl\Controls\03TabScroll\ 4OneFEdgeScrollChiralInfoText\ and inside the other window there will be a key called visibility

    also do this for Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTPCpl\Controls\03TabScroll\ 4OneFEdgeScrollChiralCheckBox\ and inside the other window there will be a key called visibility

    Find the items and

    Change the Visibility key of both from 4 to 0

    Open the Synaptics control panel, go to scroll tab, it will have appeared

    —————————————————————————————————-

    finally mess around with

    If you want to tweak the settings for the three mouse-speed settings (MouseSpeed, MouseThreshold1, and MouseThreshold2), launch the registry editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse\.

    Along with a few other settings, you'll see the three mouse-speed values in the right panel. Mouse-Speed is a multiplier that is set from 0 (always run at the basic speed) to 2 (multiply the calculated speed by 4). MouseThreshold1 indicates the number of pixels you must move the mouse between interrupts to automatically double the basic speed (unless MouseSpeed is not set to 0). By default, MouseThreshold1 ranges from 0 (do not introduce speed-doubling) to 10 pixels, but you can set its value to higher than 10 if you like. Setting the value closer to 1 makes Windows introduce speed-doubling sooner, which causes your pointer to pick up speed.

    The last of the three pointer values, MouseThreshold2, behaves like MouseThreshold1 except that it causes Windows to again double the mouse's speed.

    but i am not sure if it makes a difference
    i have tested it and i dont think it makes any difference

    —————————————————————————————–
    BUT here is what i did and it does work!

    i downloaded a program called regshot which is free and it compares the registry before you make a change and after you make a change (there are probably other programs as well but i found this the simplest of the lot)

    i then changed the mouse speed in the synaptics driver. i then used the reg compare and it directed me to a folder in the registry hkey current usere/software/synaptics/syntp/touchpadps2tm3014/pointermotionspeed

    edit the speed to a higher number such as 300 instead of 190

    i could not find this in the default windows program called regedit but i downloaded a program called registrar registry manager which shows a lot more than regedit and you can edit it there

    you can use this method to find the appropriate registry key to edit for whatever you wish

    i am no computer expert and accept no responsibility for these methods but hope you have enjoyed hacking and credit to the forums which got me this far

    regards

    1. Thank you for your information.
      I could install synaptics driver to dell inspiron 7568(2in1) and , utility softwares worked perfectly(newtonpad , strokes plus , two-finger-scroll).

      1. Great glad it helped! I added your note to the list. I am assuming version 19.0.27.3 and Windows 10 64 Bit (TH2)?

  89. Yay! I have two and three-finger swiping back finally! Thank you for your hard work putting this together. I was beating this up with the reference drivers and getting nowhere. I hadn't thought to scour Dell for their various versions. Awesome. Anyway…

    Inspiron 15 N5010: 19.0.15.2 works with a manual install and not the self install. None of the v19s worked with self install. Did not bother trying earlier versions.

    BTW, this page is broken on Chrome. It loads over and over and over… until you hit the stop button at the right time. Works on Firefox.

  90. Hi, First of all, great guide, thank you.
    Tried the Alps Alps touchpad, v7.4.102.102,A02 for Dell Vostro 1520, and worked like a charm.

    1. It will be an Alps Touchpad. Dell listed version 8.1200.101.127 as compatible with Windows 8/8.1. You can try this with Windows 10 also.

      You may also try the latest Alps Touchpad driver following the instructions on this page if you do let me know how it works out for you.

  91. The driver 19.0.9.4 works with the inspiron 5448 BUT the dell touchpad panel is not accessible for configuration nor the double tap works. Its shitty because the functional drivers dell provides works with windows 8.1 gestures (which work also in windows 10 but the task view is not available (in the gestures))

    What works in 19.0.9.4: task view, minimize, scroll, back/forfh navigation gestures.

    What doesnt work in 19.0.9.4: double finger tap for right click, call action center, access and configure dell touchpad app

    This is for inspiron 5448

    1. Its got a Synaptics Touchpad, Dell list 19.0.9.4 as compatible but there are some reports that it might not install correctly so you may need to manually install it. I would try with the latest Synaptics Driver first and if it doesn't work as expected try 19.0.9.4.

    1. Thanks for reporting your findings. I've added it to the list. I expect it will be similar for the Vostro 1520 also. 🙂

  92. This worked great for me! I have a Dell Inspiron 5523 with Windows 10 installed. I recently lost touch scroll capabilities, so I installed the latest Synaptics driver, and my touch pad works fine now.

  93. Thanks so much for this guide. Manually updating the driver to the Synaptics 19.0.19.1 Windows 10 64-bit driver worked on my Inspiron 11 3000 2-in1 Series Special Edition (3152). The 19.0.15.15 driver from Dell's website didn't work.

  94. Mice and other pointing device doesnot appears in device manager

    1. What is the model of Dell and the operating system. If its not showing at all? Does it work in the BIOS setup?

  95. Many thanks for this information. Well done for finding it all!

    I can confirm that the Windows 10 Alps touchpad driver does work for Dell Latitude E6420. It seems much better than the previous drivers, so well worth updating. (10.1207.101.109)

    1. Thanks was wondering how the Touchpad fared with that model with Windows 10. I only used that system for a little while near the release of Windows 8.

  96. dear philip,

    i have an inspiron 3421.
    i downloaded the latest synaptics driver file suggested by you and then extracted it to a folder. As it had an exe file, instead of any x64 folder, i used 7z to further extract that file (Synaptics_v19_0_27_9__C__x64__Win7_Win8_Win81_Win10__Signed__MUP__DellWPF_RMIHID).
    but even this extratced folder didnot have any folders – none at all, only files – so, i used this folder in my selection for the force install.
    following your instructions, i found that there were 2 devices showing up under 'select the device driver you want to install for this hardware' – "dell touchpad" and "touchpad" – and so i selected 'dell touchpad' and completed the install.

    on restarting i found that the touchpad was not working at all, and had to use a mouse.
    and the device manager showed 'dell touchpad', but with a yellow traingle.
    so, i checked the 'properties'. this is what it said under device status:

    This device cannot start. (Code 10)
    The specified request is not a valid operation for the target device

    what do you suggest?

    thank you.

    1. Right click it and select uninstall it in the Device Manager… You can double click the .exe and select Extract… as shown in the guide.

      If the driver still doesn't work try the earlier versions (next latest version) of the Synaptics Touchpad.

      1. i don't know what happened… but now i have the touchpad showing up as dell touchpad. and the weird thing is, the version shows up as 19.0.9.4.
        now, how did that happen? as i think, the file i was using was for version 19.027.9, correct?
        i am stumped.

      2. like i mentioned before, philip… mysteriously, the input driver that has loaded is version 19.0.9.4.

        i thought of reinstalling that to ensure everything is perfect. but when i checked dell downloads, the download file is different (0CDNN_WN32_19.0.9.4_A00), while when i checked the 19.0.9.4 file mentioned by you in this post is different (CN4KX_WN32_19.0.9.4_A00)

        dell mentions that the file you suggested above (under synaptics downloads) is for Inspiron 3442/3542/5748/3458/3558 .

        these are the pages for the file you suggest, and the one dell suggests for 3421:

        what do you suggest?
        your reply will be valuable, as i want to reinstall the win10 from scratch and install the correct drivers now that i have found which are working.

        thanks

      3. Biren this is one of the things which needs to be tested specifically for each model… If your Touchpad works well and shows as Dell Touchpad in the Device manager then you definitely have the correct driver and since both are the same version its likely the same driver. The main issue is that many Dell drivers weren't installing correctly which is why I instructed to force install the driver which works in most cases.

      4. it seems i was not very clear, philip. maybe because i am writing so many comments it is difficult for you to follow my thread. 🙂
        the dell touchpad driver that i installed was the latest one you suggested originally – version 19.0.27.9.
        it did not work – a yellow triangle showed up in device manager.
        then, after a few restarts (as i was installing other drivers), i suddenly found the yellow triangle had gone. when i checked the version, it was 19.0.9.4 instead of 19.0.27.9 that i had used. i am stumped at how the 19.0.9.4 got there – and i was asking you if you could maybe solve this mystery for me 🙂

        the other thing i wanted to know was… that since 19.0.9.4 did get installed and working… i thought i would use the actual 19.0.9.4 file to reinstall that driver.
        but i found there were 2 files for version 19.0.9.4 – one mentioned in dell downloads, the other mentioned by you in this article above.
        i visited the pages of these 2 files for 19.0.9.4 on dell site. they are:
        for the file you suggest above, the page is:
        http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=CN4KX

        the page for the file i searched for on dell site for 3421 is this:
        http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=0CDNN

        i wanted to know if you can tell me which of these files do i use to download 19.0.9.4.

        also… is there a way to keep my windows installation clean when i keep installing and uninstalling all these drivers? i am worried – will it bloat my windows with digital debry?

        thank you, philip.

        once i have a perfectly working setup with all the drivers installed, i will let you know here – just in case it might help others.
        if you want me to experiment and try something, do let me know.

        regards

      5. Windows 10 Update sometimes automatically installs drivers in the background… its possible that it installed the Touchpad driver by itself.

        At the moment there is no point in performing a clean install again… Installing some drivers twice won't influence the performance much. Just get it up and running so everything works. Then use it as is for a couple of weeks…

        On the 2nd of August Windows 10 RS1 will be out so that would be a far better convenient time to clean install with up to date installation media.

        i.e. a clean install now will upgrade in about 2 weeks and the upgrade install of the new Windows 10 build will leave a lot more digital derby than installing a touchpad driver twice.

  97. Thanks for this excellent site.
    The hardware I had problems with is Dell Latitude E6510, with Alps touchpad. Re-purposed work laptop, from 2011, I think it came with Win7. I upgraded to Win 10. The Win 10 installation picked 8.1206.101.112, which was next to useless. Jerky movement, freezes then big jumps, etc.
    I tried several drivers, 8.1206.101.109 and 104 were a bit better, but far from good.
    The solution for the Dell Latitude E6510 was 8.1200.230 dated 2009.11.22.

  98. philip,
    here are the results of my experiment (i have inspiron 3421 with synaptics touchpad):
    since i was ready to clean install win10 RS1, i thought, i would use my present setup of win10TH2 to experiment with the touchpads.

    i used the following 4 driver files:
    1. Input_Driver_WP72P_WN32_19.0.27.9_A01 (suggested by you in above article)

    2. input_Driver_CN4KX_WN32_19.0.9.4_A00 (suggested by you in the above article)

    3. input_Driver_0CDNN_WN32_19.0.9.4_A00 (suggested in dell downloads for inspiron 3421)

    4. Touchpad_Driver_756GC_WN64_19.0.15.2_A00 (suggested by you in above article)

    Every time i was installing a new driver, i ensured that the previous one was uninstalled fully and perfectly, bringing back the PS2 driver version of 2006, as included in windows 10 originally.

    first i tried 19.0.27.9 – did not work – there was no functionality at all. (msg – 'this device cannot start. code 10')

    then i tried the version 19.0.9.4 file suggested by you – did not work.

    then i tried the same version 19.0.9.4, using the file available in dell downloads for 3421 – the touchpad was working. since i don't know all the functions that should be working, i can't say if this was working fully and perfectly, but the basic functions were ok. i also tried the 2-finger scrolling on webpages – that was also working.

    then i tried 19.0.15.2 – this worked too.
    since i don't know which functions to check, i can't say if the touchpad worked better with 19.0.9.4 or 19.0.15.2 – for me, both seem same.

    hope this helps.

    now, i will try the same sequence as above, after i clean install win10 RS1.
    will let you know the results.

    thanks, and warm regards

    1. Many thanks. I followed your article and installed Synaptics Touchpad driver 19.0.15.2 on my Dell Inspiron N5010 and now the touchpad scroll function is available in windows 10 Edge browser also. Earlier, scrolling was working only in IE11, Chrome, Opera and Vivaldi. Thanks again.
      H.P.Agrawal

      1. Great, strange that it only didn't work before in the Edge Browser… Thanks for confirming that this version works best for you.

  99. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! Silly thing that costs so much time… Dell Vostro v131 with Synaptics on board. Tried many options but 18.1.48.1 finally worked. Got two finger scroll back!

    Weird thing is, this scroll does not work in OS windows like mouse options. Other program windows (browsers, notepad) scroll correctly.

    Installed as Dell Touchpad, not as a Synaptics device, so in mouse options there is Dell Touchpad tab opening Dell Touchpad options, not the Synaptics one.

  100. Thank you so much…the instructions were very organised .. it really helped me install my touchpad..I m happy Thanx a lot

  101. I really dont know What to do anymore. I have a Inspiron n5110 which is Alps and I've tried nearly all the drivers. the problem with mine is that it suddenly starts to lag then stops completly. I have stop using it for a while for it to work again. Restarting it doesnt work either.

      1. Yeah I've done it. I dont know if thats the problem… I'll try again. I noticed it stops working when I'm using the computer for a long time and its hot, but I'm completely convinced if its actually hardware because this didint happen before windows 10.

  102. I have a Dell L501X laptop and, as recommended above, Synaptics driver version 19.0.15.2 works perfectly – or at least it did until a recent W10 update reverted my machine to the useless Microsoft generic touch pad driver requiring me to go through the driver installation again – how irritating Microsoft is.

    Thanks so much for your diligent support – I wish Microsoft / Dell were half as conscientious!

    1. Probably you installed the Anniversary Update which is essentially an OS Upgrade install i.e. a new build of Windows 10. You can leave feedback to Microsoft in their Windows Feedback App.

  103. Anyone find a driver to work with 64 bit Windows 10 and the Synaptics Touchpad for m1330 dell xps.

      1. I tried those drivers and it made the mouse functions glitchy and clicking didn't work correctly and still no scrolling functions.

    1. 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/Win10-64.

  104. L321x Windows 10 x64 here. Multitouch does not work on 2.5.3.72, where it does work on 2.5.1.72. Left click and right click work on 3.72 and no errors in device manager, but there is no cypress tab under control panel -> mouse or display icon in task bar or customizable settings from the display icon program.

  105. I have Dell Inspiron N 5010 Laptop. Dell has not tasted this for Windows 10, however, I installed and this has been updated further by the Anniversary update. On this laptop Scroll function of the Synaptics TouchPad does not work in Edge browser or any of the Apps available on the windows store. The TouchPad functions excellent in IE11, Chrome, Firefox, Opera and also Vivaldi on the same laptop. Earlier I had installed driver 19.0.15.2 on 22.8.16. This enabled its functionality in Edge browser as well as all the apps. However, the touchpad function was not stable. A single click will result into multiple pages opening and therefore, I reinstalled the original Driver i.e. 15.0.0.1 ( released 23.12.2009). I wonder why the scroll function is not working in Edge browser and related applications.

  107. hi there. how do I re-enable circular scrolling on dell trackpad to work in windows 10pro. like it use to work on windows 7pro. have Tried all latestest drivers they all work. but just dont have access to circular scrolling or one finger scrolling in the dell pointing devices software? like it use to have in windows 7. dell latitude e6530

      1. Can you be able to collect all the Dell Touchpad Firmware as well? I have no way to find the newest firmware for XPS 13 9360. Right now, Im having problem with my touchpad, the firmware I have poorly chosen to flash was not compatible with this touchpad. Its dead and unusable at present, no matter what drivers I tried to install. Also, under device manager or control panel–mouse, it was not shown on both of them.
        If you have access to the newest firmware, please let me know. Great thanks in advance!

      2. This is drivers only, I've no intent to list firmware as it should be system specific and if its not it could brick touchpads its not intended for (like I guess you discovered). I don't have newer firmware than Dell list and Dell don't list any touchpad firmware for this model.

  108. Inspiron 1420 running on Win10Pro 64-bit. Alps 8.1200.101.209 gave the scroll functionality back.

  109. Cypress Touchpad 2.5.3.72 Windows 10 64 Bit driver works on XPS 15z (L511z). Thanks!!! after instalation I needed set up 3 and 4 fingers multitouch functions

  110. I have not been able to find a touchpad driver for Dell N 5010 . The driver installed is Synaptics 15.0.0.1. Scroll function does not work in Edge browser and Windows 10 apps. I have upgraded to Anniversary update also. Scroll works in IE11.

  111. i just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH, i got my l502x working by following your install instructions with a specific synaptic driver

  112. the newest Alps driver listed ("Alps Touchpad – 10.1207.101.113") links to a Logitech Unity device driver (a universal wireless mouse hub, i think). The 'newest Alps driver' link embedded in the text links to the same non-Alps file, too.

  113. Cypress Touchpad – 2.5.3.72 Windows 10 64 Bit XPS 15z (L511z) and XPS 13 L322x. Please let me know if you test on the XPS 13 L321x.

    Early results on the L321x are looking good!
    I have multitouch, pinch zoom, etc… and the trackpad seems more responsive.

    1. Interesting I had an earlier comment saying it didn't work. Let me know how if it still works well after some extended use. 🙂

  114. Works fine on Vostro 3700 and Win10 64Bit
    Synaptics Touchpad – 19.0.15.2 Windows 7/10 32/64 Bit

  115. Can confirm that Alps vers 8.1200.101.217 works perfectly on Dell Latitude D630 running Win 10 , 64 Bit. Has returned touchpad scroll functionality.

    Many thanks!

  116. Thank you for your Guide, it works great.
    I had issues with my Touchpad, sometimes it generates additional characters in the applications or just does not work for a few seconds after changing a window.

    So far it seems to work without any problems, my Hardware for Reference and the Alps driver I downloaded:

    Dell Precision M6600
    Alps 10.1207.101.113 Windows 7/8.1/10 32/64 Bit

    1. This is regarding Synaptics Touch Pad issue on Dell Inspiron N 5010. Only today windows update services automatically updated the old Driver with a new one release no. 19.2.17.55. This installation has solved the scroll function of the Touch Pad. I was facing this difficulty since I upgraded to Windows 10. Earlier scroll function was not working in Edge Browser and any of the the apps offered by Windows 10 although it was working in Opera, Chrome, and also IE11.
      Thanks to Synaptics and Windows Autoupdate system for addressing the problem of so many N5010 laptop users.

      1. Thanks for writing to let me know that Windows Update is getting on board with the touchpads. I assume you are using the version 1703 build 15063 RS2 of Windows 10.

  117. Thanks. I am using windows 10 Home version 1607 build 14394.969

  118. Inspiron 9400 (Synaptic v15.3.45.91) Installed and ran successfully in Windows 7 Professional x64). Default settings are horrid though. Disable the palm detection before anything else. I'm successfully using multi-touch gestures (2 and 3 finger gestures), and also edge detection.

    I've no plan at present, to upgrade it to Windows 10, but if I do – I'll try to remember to report back here.

  119. Philip, I just want to say first of all, a big Thank You for the incredible amount of time and expertise you have put into this website. It has been a big help to me. I know you're also a 'Rock Star' at Dell, and I would add the title 'Tech Support Saint' for all the people you have saved from PC Hell!

    I'm wondering if you, or anyone else reading this happens to know what make of touchpad was put into the Inspiron 1520?

    1. Problem Solved! I read your instructions more carefully, got the original Dell driver, extracted it, and found out that it's a Synaptics touchpad. Thanks again for all your good work.

      1. The driver that Dell released supported the Inspiron 1318, Inspiron 1520, Precision M6300, Vostro 1000, Vostro 1500, XPS M1330 and XPS M1730.

        The XPS M1330 is reported to work successfully with the Synaptics 15.3.2.1 driver and Windows 7 64 Bit (probably also Windows 10 64 Bit). Newer Synaptic versions may also work.

  120. Hi Philip,
    I am running Windows 10 64-bit on the Inspiron 1520. I had tried some of the newer Synaptics drivers and couldn't get any of them to install. After reading your reply, I tried the Synaptics 15.3.2.1 driver, and it worked! So thanks again, you are the best!

    1. Philip,
      I have a Dell Inspiron N5010. The update driver Synaptics 19.0.15.2 – Windows 10 64 bit did not solve my scrolling problem. I attempted to use the latest Synaptics Touchpad driver 19.0.27.9 Windows7/10 64 bit, but I could not get it to install. I cannot see where to find the 64 bit information in the folder files. I am having the same problem finding the 64 bit information in the Synaptics driver files 19.0.27.3 and 19.0.9.6. I need this to add to the address of the download location. Can you provide help in locating this information?

  121. I have clean installed Windows 10 Creator's Update (1703) on a Studio 1558 Memory: 8GB; CPU: i7-720QM, Chipset: HM55; Wireless: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN; Display: AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5470. I used the "touchpad_synaptics_w84_x10_a02_setup-nvcd2_zpe" for the Touchpad. I tried the Synaptics – 19.0.27.9, 19.0.27.3, 19.0.19.1 and the Dell 16.6.13.0. I ended up using the Dell 16.2.10.3 as the Touchpad seems to work the best. The first two Synaptics drivers caused a complete loss of the Touchpad. Good thing I remembered the keyboard shortcuts for shutting down (Alt+F4). Otherwise, I would have had to do a hard reboot. The Generic Synaptics and the Dell 16.6.13.0 drivers worked, but, there were issues when trying to copy and paste. Unfortunately, I cannot remember or find how I came up with the Dell 16.2.10.3 driver file. I'll keep looking. It came off the Dell ftp site. I saved all the links but there are over 50 of them. I'll post the complete install order and driver name/version used, under the "Driver Sets". Thank you Philip, for your VALUABLE documentation!!!! I would have never figured this out on my own.
