    The driver is installed, but the touch tab doesn't appear under "Pen and Input Devices" as it should.

    I want to disable the touchpad in my Inspiron 1525. It has XP Installed. The reason I want to disable it is because it has an erratic behaviour and keeps jumping around when least expected, specially when you are typing some text and you end up typing half of it elsewhere.

I have a Dell Latitude D830. How do I disable touchpad when using usb connected mouse?

Disabling a touchpad is not required while you are using a USB mouse.
however if you wanted to do it, follow the steps given below depending on your windows

If it is XP follow the following steps

1)Right click on my computer Icon
2)Click on Manage
3)In the left side of this window click on device manager
4)In the right side of the windows you will see the device manager
5) In the device manager screen click on the plus sign adjacent to mice and other pointing devices
6)Now you should be able to see the touchpad listed there.
7) Right click on the touchpad and choose disable.

Note: remember to enable it before you disconnect your mouse, without the mouse enabling it back will be a challenge with your keyboard.

If it is vista / windows 7

Click on start or windows pearl
type device manager and click on the device manager appearing on top of the menu.
and then follow from step 5.

Can you please tellme how to disable the touchpad so may use a mouse?

I am sorry, it seems you've closed the chat window, and I have no other way to contact you and get back to you. Anyway I wish you good luck.
Here's the steps again..

Click "Start" go to "Control Panel" and open "Mouse Properties" then "TouchPad" and disable it.. There must be several options to disable or enable, the best is to select "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing device is present" so that it'll not be necessary to manually re-enable it from the Control panel..

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Dell 1545...... How do you disable the touch pad.

If you double click on the touch pad icon in the task bar it will bring up the Dell Touchpad Settings. Then click "Device Select / Button Settings". There should be two tabs there. Make sure "Device Select" is selected, and at the bottom of this tab, there should be a check box that says "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present".

If you cannot find those settings, they may also be in the BIOS. Try pressing F2 while booting and look around in the BIOS for a similar option.

No response from curser when usb is plugged in

Restart the computer using the keyboard "Windows key" and leave the mouse plugged in the USB port. If it has a driver CD, install the software and drivers then restart the computer. Windows Xp should find the new device and make it ready for use. If you are using Windows Vista then you will need to go into your "My Computer" and then "Control Panel" and "Printers and other hardware" and then "Mouse" and click "Troubleshoot" If you are using a Laptop or notebook, disable your touchpad first then plug the USB mouse into port
