1) Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.


  • 2) Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
  • 3) Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked.

    http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insm5030/en/sg/sg_en.pdf PAGE 30

    You have to go to (winkey)- xto get to the Windows Mobility Center and in the function key row, select Function Key instead of Multimedia key. This should reverse the Fn problem.

    You can find some instructions on disabling the touchpad herehttp://www.labnol.org/software/disable-touchpad-on-laptop/14052/
    and this link has a piece of freeware called TouchPad Pal which allows you to disable the touchpad while you're typing (which should be the only time it gets in the way really) http://download.cnet.com/TouchpadPal/3000-2084_4-11143760.html

    Hi,

    If the settings of the touchpad doesn't load, you need to reinstall or update the touchpad driver. You can go to "Device Manager" or Dell website and download an updated driver.

    Hope this helps.

    My mouse is frozen please help


    try to restart the pc and check if the touchpad will still act on it. If not, try to use an external mouse and check if it works. Otherwise call Dell to possibly repair your touch pad..
