Alas, looking at these forums and elsewhere, that’s not the case. Since this laptop was functioning perfectly in pretty much every way up until the moment I did the Win10 Preview installation, and the issues began almost immediately, I feel that a hardware issue is not likely at the root of it. Also, did you notice that the oldest version of Windows elligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade is Windows 7? Staunton, VA Local time: I am more than aware of the logistics involved in what I propose. I fail to believe that there isn’t a device driver for something as fundamental as a laptop touch pad, even old ones, that cannot be found to work with Win

That’s not happening, and it is really unrealistic to believe that a huge number of users even know how to perform upgrade compatibility checks and a lot of those happen to be 17720 of mine. I know this might be hard to understand if you don’t have a programming background dll think about this: Any other drivers that exists are unofficial, could be malicious, buggy or simply work for a few users with special setups. It’s very common also for double click on desktop icons to stop functioning and a single click directly on the icon giving a context menu with “open” as an option.
Did you ever try to install a driver manually by selecting it from the list of available drivers from Inpsiron

Microsoft makes very few device drivers, per se, but should be able to compile one of the most extensive catalogs of existing drivers for all kinds of hardware on the planet.
It just doesn’t make sense. The warnings exists when the Windows 10 Compatibility Advisor encounter hardware components that aren’t supposed under Windows Alas, looking at these forums and elsewhere, that’s not the case. Or had flaws that could cause bugs and issues? Ever thought about that.
Driver that works under Win10 for Inspiron 17XX series touchpad? – Windows 10 Support
I fail to believe that there isn’t a device driver for something as fundamental as a laptop touch pad, even old ones, that cannot be found to work with Win The Alps Electric touch pad which Dell used on this series is common as dirt, and that’s why I’m so frustrated at my lack of success. Since this laptop was functioning perfectly in pretty much every way up until the moment I did the Win10 Preview installation, and the issues began almost immediately, I feel that a hardware issue is not likely at the root of it.
Once again, this touchpad brand was used for many, many years. Vista was released 8 years ago, it’s almost a decade. Believe me, I agree with you on the “you can’t support something forever” front. Personally I understand Microsoft to not have drivers for touchpads that old. It’s an Inspiron as noted in the initial post.
I have only myself to blame because I used this machine during the Windows Insider program and the warnings were there, but I also thought that certainly there would be no compatibility issues with virtually any “fundamental hardware” even if a generic driver was required by the time “ready for primetime” occurred.
If I didn’t reply to you within 48 hoursplease send me a PM. Several functions may not work. I think there’s also a built-in check during the upgrade process, but youchpad not as thorough. Click here to Register a free account now! But was the model you have used for many, many years?
Driver that works under Win10 for Inspiron 17XX series touchpad?
This laptop was made for Windows Vista hell, maybe it even came with Windows XP and you expect Microsoft to provide hardware support for a laptop after 3 generations of Windows were released? You’d think that a generic HID driver would work with virtually anything, but even that hasn’t worked on this particular machine.
Driver that works under Win10 for Inspiron 17XX series touchpad? An Operating System by definition is a system software that manages insiron and software resources, therefore you could see it as a “middleware”. That’s OK and with this post on this subject I’m signing off for the time being. Page 1 of 2 1 2 Next.
