If what you are referring to is the 'eraser' type mouse joystick on many laptops that eventually go haywire and make the mouse drift off wonkily to the edges of the screen, those are able to be disabled if you download the mouse driver for your computer from dell. (the touchpad driver is usually the correct one) and in the control panel you can disable the toggle.

I want to change keyboards


Hi Richard,
most enhanced keyboards need a specific driver to run.
Go to the manufacturers website to download the driver. or search on Google.
You might also have to enter BIOS (accessed when the computer is booting..look for a message that tells you how to get into BIOS, or look in your user manual). Often it can be accessed by pressing the DELETE or F1 key just after you power up. The option in BIOS you may have to change is something like "enable Legacy support for USB".
Have you tried looking in the Dell support website? As you just recently(?) bought this, you can ring up Dell support centre and ask them to help.
Cheers,
Steve

Dell Inspiron 8600 validating problems


This is a problem associated with a wireless connection. What it is asking for is the identity of your wireless lan. That is, the name the router is broadcasting. This is called the network ID.and is what you must supply when asked. If you untick the IEEE.802.1 you disable the connection. You will also need to have the nework securety code (WEP) to logon.

I need to replace the keyboard on my dell inspiron 8600 laptop


Its really simple...

Theres a small lip on the bezel just above the keyboard and all the way to the left side. Stick a small screwdriver under it and pry it up. Unplug the bezel from the right side and put it aside. Unscrew the two screws on the top of the keyboard that the bezel was covering and pull upward gently from where you removed the screws. It should come right up. There is a plug just underneath the keyboard. Unplug it and youre home free. Reverse these steps to reinstall.
