My dell inspiron trackpad

Postby Killer boi » Thu Jul 21, 2016 5:26 pm

Hey guys, I recently got a new laptop, and am having an issue I can't seem to find anybody else having.

When I run ultimate edition, it works fine for a bit, but typically after I click on something with the trackpad, the trackpad seems to disable itself.
It doesn't come back on unless I restart, and it just happens the same way every time.

I went through and tested a few older variants of Ultimate Edition, the oldest I tried was 2.6, and the trackpad worked, but I couldn't get the wifi to work, same with every version I tried up to 4.2.4, Ultimate Edition 4.2.4 is the first version I find where my wifi works, and my trackpad still works, I may just sit on it since everything just works for the moment, and I wanted the laptop for programming practice and steam streaming, both of which it works fine for while on 4.2.4.

Does this help?

I understood that newer Dells were no longer shipping with Synaptics Touchpads but a weird and obscure 'Cypress' one? ;) :D
