The issue, When booting Microsoft Windows 7 on a cold boot the Touch pad on my Dell E1505 doesn't respond. I can login using the keyboard and everything works other wise. But if I reboot anywhere between 1-3 times it will start working.

It just bugs the heck out of me and would like to get it working on the first boot every time, instead of rebooting 1-3 times.

Specs

Dell E1505
1.83ghz
2 gigs DDR2 667 Ram
160 Gigs Sata HD
DVD-RW
Ati Radeon x1300 mobility

Windows 7 64bit with a unbootable Ubuntu partition (don't worry about this just need to reinstall the boot loader)

Does the same problem happen with a USB mouse plugged in?

Also, if you are Beta testing Windows 7, have you sent a "Bug Report"?

Yeah, it does sound a bit weird. Is there an updated touchpad driver you can install? You may find it on the Dell website.

It may or may not fix the problem. Either way, it's good to send the feedback to Microsoft - gives them something to do. :)
