1) Try the drivers that I pointed out in this thread on the first page for your touchpad drivers. They should be the same. If you do have an M1730 or Inspiron 1720, then it is a Synaptics touchpad. If all else fails, it's probably a setting in the driver that's not right, so check your touchpad configuration.
Hey, sorry about providing no system data; I do have an Inspiron 1720. I tried your Synaptics driver again, to no avail. (the video works great though, thank you) The specific problem I get is, when I run Dell Touchpad Settings, I get a window with four clickable icons: Device Select, Scrolling Settings, Touchpad Settings, and External Mouse Settings. When I click on a button that works, I get a submenu. When I click on Touchpad Settings or Scrolling Settings, nothing happens. The system acknowledges the click, but no submenu opens.
This leads me to believe that I'm still running the basic XP PS/2 driver, somehow.
Thanks very much for all your help.
