    I am not interested in spending, and will NOT spend any more money on my Dell Inspiron 1525, all I want is to simply disable the touchpad.Your instructions are difficult to follow. I am a writer and never use the touchpad. I have the mouse connected but the touch pad will invaribly interfere within every word I write. I must get something done immediately!!

Is the problem being caused by your palm hitting the surface of the touchpad? This happens with many people. There is a setting for the touchpad which will let you set how sensitive the touchpad is, thereby eliminating your problem.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop and my cursor jumps when im typing e-mails


If your hands are really warm they don't even need to touch the touchpad in order to move the cursor. You can go into "device manager" and disable the touchpad and just use a wireless mouse instead.

My inspiron 1525 touchpad is broken, if i dont use a mouse the cursor will not going to move, stock. please help me how to solve this problem. thanks


If this is physically borken then you will have to get it replaced or a temporary solution is that you can use a usb mouse.
and if it is an issue with just the cursor and the touchpad is intact then you will have to reinstall the drivers and it will work absolutely fine.
you can do it from the dell drivers cd or you can go to the dell support website.
www.support.dell.com click on drivers and downloads and download and install the Dell touchpad/pointing stick drivers.issue will be resolved.

I want to deactivate my touch pad on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop. Please advise how


If you do not see a Touchpad icon in your systray(lower right), go to:

Start/Control Panel/System

On the left choose "Device Manager".

Select "Mice and other pointing devices" and highlight "Dell Touchpad"

Either right click and "Uninstall" or click the uninstall icon at the top.

Restart your machine and it will automatically update the driver from Dell which will put the Touchpad icon back in the system tray.

Click on this icon and go to "Device Select"

Check the "Disable Touchpad/Pointing stick when external USB mouse id present.

Dell Cursor Typing Blinking Problem


this is because you must deactivate your touchpad. you can do this by holding the Fn key and pressing the F* key that shows a picture of a touchpad in the same color as the Fn.
or you can go to control panel and turn it off in the mouse settings. but just attaching a mouse will allow the touchpad to stay active and therefore still be sensitive enough for your hand to "tap" th cursor.;
Good luck and pls rank this response! :D
