Re: Touchpad problem =[
The only possible reason that i can think of is that ur AC adapter is not the correct adapter for ur computer, if its not the correct charger contact dell.com and u can get the original charger for you laptop for under 60 dollars.

It may be that you have not got the updated driver for it. if you on dells support website you can find drivers for your dell.
heres a link to dell site you should try trackpaddriverurl
click the download button and install the driver, or you can perform a windows update that should find the right drivers.
i dont think dell offers windows 7 drivers for your machine but the vista ones should work fine. but if not go to synaptics website here and scroll down for the newest drivers for the trackpad (youd want the xp/vist/windows 7 32bit)
Try going to Control Panel - Hardware and sound - mouse. Once you have the menu for the mouse open, go to device settings. Click settings, and all of the advanced controls for the functions of your mouse pad can be found there.
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.
