Question about Dell 0Y3740 Keyboard
I have a Dell Latitude D630 and my trackball is at the intersection of the "G", "H", and "B"... Everytime I type, especially when typing the "G", "H", or "B", and one of my fingers barely brushes the trackball, the cursor goes off into a new position, and I have to do a lot of deleting...Its taking me forever to type anything! I have tried to reduce the speed and precision of the pointer, usineg the control panel option on the start menu and it does not help... Is there any way to deactivate the trackball while I am typing, or using an external wireless mouse? Thannks!
Go to control panel. Select mouse. In the window that opens, select the dell touchpad tab. Click where it tells you.
Then, on the bottom left of the next window that opens, select "pointing stick settings." Uncheck the "tap to click" and the TouchCheck "Enable" boxes.
That seemed to work for me. you can also disable the touchcheck on the touchpad.

Download the newest mouse driver from Dell's web site. http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=204968 It will have an option for changing settings on the specific mouse, or disabling it alltogether.

Dell Latitude D820. Same Problem. I fixed it!
Using the control panel, the option to disable the trackball / pointer stick didn't exist. It simply wasn't there to choose.
I had a friend over you advised me to download the lastest (optional) Touchpad / Pointing Stick driver from dell.com.
Sorry but this link below is for the D820 only, but should serve as a great direction for the rest of you. After i updated the driver, the mouse window thru the control panel changed and now allowed me to disable the pointing stick. hope this helps.

You can slow it down in pointing stick settings...but not disable. Just above pointing stick settings you will see "device settings" . You can easily disable from there. It will even show you a pic of the blue dot...and you disable that one.

I had the exact same problem. just download the driver from this link and install it. then go to control panel, mouse settings, then touchpad settings. then go to device select and then click 'disable' pointing stick. this problem pissed me off alot but this is a quick solution. hope it works for you.

Yes, you can always use an external mouse wired or wireless, you may have trouble disabling the trackball, although it can be done.
