SOURCE: Can't "tap" on my Dell touchpad
I had the same problem after purchasing an HP laptop with a Synaptics TouchPad. After using a wireless mouse for awhile, the TouchPad stopped working. The TouchPad light was white, indicating it was enabled. No TouchPad devices was listed anymore in the Mouse Properties in the Control Panel. I tried reloading the driver but nothing changed.
After shutting down the laptop and removing the battery (according to owner’s manual) it worked again. After turning on the laptop, make sure the TouchPad works. Then go to Control Panel, Mouse, Device Settings tab, and make sure a Synaptics TouchPad is listed in the Devices list and that the Enable button is grayed out.

Go to the Dell support website and enter your serve tag or express service code, This will bring you to the software for your specific machine. Download fresh drivers for the touchpad, see if this resets it.
Also check the touchpad under Control Panel or Dell Utilities, and see if somehow those features or buttons were disabled.
If neither of these options work you will need to bring it to a local PC shop and they will reconnect or replace the touchpad and/or keyboard if they are attached in your model.
If they have to replace the parts they will probably get them from Ebay so if you are so inclined and they tell you they need the parts, you can get them yourself and possibly save a buck or two.
Hope this helps, I also do this type of work the CT area so if you are around there and need the service, let me know I am reasonably priced, industry certified, have passed all the Dell factory tests, and I am happy to help.
Good Luck !!
