Question about Computers & Internet
Can i disable the touchpad but still keep the pointer and use a manual mouse instead?
Depending on your laptop, It may have a shut down, you didn't give Make, Model or OS, There should a touchpad software icon in the Trat Notification Area, right click, settings, sensitivity. Without further info that's the best I can do. Have you done a OS upgrade?

As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.
Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.
Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.

Function F7 to disable the touch pad and the same buttons to enable it. The function key is the button with Fn. on it.
Good luck and don't forget to rate my answer.

If you have any dust or food particles in the cracks between the touchpad and the laptop, be sure to clean those out with a can of pressurized air. Those will sometimes cause the touchpad to think you are touching it on two places at once, which will make the touchpad jump all over the place.

Click on the start menu and select "Control Panel". Once in the control panel, select "Hardware and Sound". Once in the hardware and sound menu, click on "Mouse". Once the mouse menu comes up, there should be a tab labeled "Dell Touchpad". Click on that tab and then click on the large touchpad icon to take you to the touchpad options. Once in the touchpad options menu, click on "Device Select". Once you click on deivce select you should see the option to "enable" or "disable" the touchpad.
