I am having the same problem as this person was:

Hello friends. I have a Dell Vostro 1000 Laptop. I am having a problem with my touchpad driver. It does not have to do with the charger or battery I beleve for I tried with and without the charger. Here is the problem. I shall describe it. Do you know how on the touchpad you can tap it and it acts as a left click instead of pressing the button to click/left click? Well now I can't do that I have to tap several times so it acts as a click. To click once I have to tap the touchpad twice where as before you just had to tap it once. The settings have nothing to do with it. I can't find where to get the drivers so can somebody hep me with this problem. Also can I have a link from where I can get dell vostro 1000 drivers for xp. I use a mouse sometimes and I am not sure if its because of that so can I have the driver site or help please the is very necessary because it is more convenient for me to just tap the touchpad to click rather the press the cleck button I am just so used to it. Thanks alot.

Although they did not post their solution :/

Any help pleaseee! This problem is making it so I cannot play my games.

All Dell machines have a "Service Tag Number". It'll be on the bottom of a laptop. Go to:

http://support.dell.com/

Click on Drivers & Downloads and click on Enter a Tag. All the information and downloads you should ever need there.
