How to enable touchpad


On some laptop machines there is a switch on the pad you just have to push to activate the touch pad. If the touch pad is not activated, your using an external mouse instead unplug the external mouse because it is conflicting maybe some laptops you can use both the pad and a external USB mouse at the same time. If this does not activate the pad then you may have to go to dell.com and download the mouse pad driver again for your make and model. More than likely either way this will fix the issue for you.

How do I disabled the touch pad and only use an external mouse and the keyboard on the lap top?


You do not have to actually disable the touch pad on this laptop to use an "external" mouse. Just plug in your mouse and it will install the drivers if needed and viola, your good to go. If you insist on disabling your touch pad however, you can do that by double tapping the top left hand corner, when you do this correctly, a little orange light will show and the screen will show a notification the the touch pad is disabled. To enable the pad back on, just repeat the same step you used to disable, and the on screen notification will indicate the touch pad is enabled!
