I used to have a touchpad settings program but can't find it any more

Usually all dell system are provided with ALPS touchpad. First check whether ALPS is installed or not from (control panel -> programs). If installed go to (control panel -> mouse) then you will see a tab called "dell touchpad". click on the image, you will see touchpad window settings. There check the checkbox (Display icon in taskbar).
If the ALPS touchpad is not installed please go to dell driver download site and download and install that.

Cursor problem

Disabling the touchpad on a Dell Inspiron can be useful when typing for long periods of time, or using an external mouse. Bumping or tapping the touchpad while typing can cause cursor jumping and unwanted results. Use the touchpad software to enable or disable touchpad controls. Download the driver for your touchpad at the Dell Support website.

Click on the "Touchpad" icon in the task bar. If the icon doesn't appear, you can download and install the driver for the touchpad from the Dell website, or choose "Start" and "Control Panel." Choose "Device Select" on the touchpad menu, or choose "Mouse" in the "Control Panel" menu and "Device Select." Click "Disable" under "Touchpad" to turn off the touchpad, or click "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick When a USB Mouse is Connected."

    I am using a Dell Vostro 1220 laptop. While composing a mail or on working on Excel, many times the pointers and controls are going haywire deleting the contents, replacing the texts, etc. What is this...

    first, make sure the latest touchpad driver is installed. after that, go to control panel, click the mouse icon and on the mouse properties, you should see a touchpad tab where you can find the option to disable it if you use an external mouse. hope this helps. feel free to rate its usefulness

    Can't see the touchpad icon on the system tray

    Hi! I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with a touchpad (this model is a bit older than yours). If you want to see the touchpad icon in the System Tray so that you can change the settings and so forth, here is how to do it in Windows XP:

    1. Go to Start, then Control Panel, then Mouse.

    2. In the Mouse Properties dialog box that pops up, look for a tab called "Dell Touchpad" and click on it to select it.

    3. Click on the big picture of the touchpad with the arrow in the middle of the new dialog box that pops up.

    4. You should now see a new window that says "Dell Touchpad" pop up.

    5. At the bottom of the Dell Touchpad window, click the checkbox that says "Display icon in taskbar" (you should see a checkmark in this box).

    6. You should now be able to see the Dell Touchpad icon in your System Tray.

    7. If you still do not see the Dell Touchpad icon, or if you do not see a tab that says "Dell Touchpad," then try re-installing the driver for the Dell Touchpad by going to:

    Enter the service tag of your laptop, or its model number (Inspiron 1525), then hit the Confirm button. You should see a new window pop up that shows all the compatible drivers for your laptop. The one you will need in this case is under the section "Input Device Drivers." Look for the driver for the Dell Touchpad, download it, and then install it, if necessary.

    Also, please make sure that you can see all the icons in your System Tray. If you can't, then try clicking on the little left-facing arrow in the System Tray, which will expand the System Tray to show all the icons there, and then you should be able to see the missing Dell Touchpad Icon.

    I do hope this solves your problem. Please feel free to comment on my solution, and rate me as to how I did. Thank you!

    Touchpad sensitivity

    You can change the sensitivity by entering Dell Touchpad utility (in Control Panel -> Mouse, if you DON'T have any external mice installed)

    Maybe it is also enough to calibrate the mouse speed in Control Panel -> Mouse.
