You should have a "FN" key on the keyboard and one of the "F" keys should have a symbol that looks like the touch-pad, hold FN while using this key should disable it, failing this in control panel, then mouse and pointers, you should have touchpad setting there should be a disable button/radius.

HI,
The xps 1330 is known to have problems with the internal speakers. Kindly call Dell Tech support and get the same replaced,while your system is under warranty. The cable that connects the speakers inside is either not connected right or is broken. If you are geeting sound form the headphones , your soundcard is fine , and there is no software problem on the system.

Thanks
