Try to test it using 32 bit diagnostic
tap F12 (just after Dell Splash Screen)
select Diagnostic partition
wait for test to finish
select Custom test (may need to use TAB and ENTER)
select pointing device
if it work here, it is likely a driver issues - got to support.dell.com and download latest pointer drivers (Alps under Input Devices?) You may as well do this first since it is easier than testing see http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=22&l=en&s=dfh&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_8200
If it does not work her, you'll need to pop it open and see if cables are tight, if they are the touchpad is broken and you'll need a replacement palmrest (included the palmrest)
see the manual at support.dell.com for info on disassembling your model if required.
