I could not find if there is a switch on your Laptop for this, but re-installing drivers may help..

Open the Control Panel, then 'System' and then 'Hardware' then 'Device Manager'. Click on Pointing Devices, find your touchpad and/or mouse then choose to uninstall the driver (right click). After uninstall (you may have to use the keyboard only at this point), totally power down.

Boot back up and let Windows "find" your mouse and/or touchpad and it will automatically reinstall the drivers. If it asks you to reboot again, do it.

I have to hit touch pad 3-4 times to work when doing anything Dell Inspiron 1501


Make sure you have the latest touchpad driver from support.dell.com, then in the touchpad settings (Control panel, Mouse, touchpad tab) adjust the sensitivity.
If adjusting the sensitivity has no effect then it may just be wearing out, which would mean a palmrest replacement. Those are around $20

I can't find a button to disable my touch pad on my laptop. the mouse cursor will jump around all over the page.


Hi dwain_ritchi,

Changing the pointing device settings in your laptop's bios is the easiest way to disable the touchpad. Please follow the steps below for additional information:

1. Turn on your computer. Press F2 when Dell logo comes up. It will open the bios setup program.

2. Now, press Alt-p three times to get to page number 4. Near the middle of the screen you should see an option called Pointing Device. Please change it from touchpad - PS/2 Mouse to just PS/2 Mouse (this also works fine with USB mouse). Press ESC to exit the bios, make sure to save the changes.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Dell Inspiron 1501 Touchpad locked up


Check the system setup F2 at start, and ensure the touchpad is enabled, next try an external mouse, see if it works.
If and external mouse works, the touch pad has failed and a new palmrest is needed.

Dell Inspiron 6000 Alps Touchpad not working


Try unistalling the touchpad driver, and reboot. The machine will find the touchpad and reinstall the driver automatically. These have a tenancy to glitch when using an external mouse, and this should clear it up. Let me know.
