First you need to make sure you have the Synaptics Pointing Device software on your laptop. If not, go to Dell's website and download this and install it to your computer. Once installed you will see an icon in the lower right corner of your laptop screen that looks like a touchpad. Double click that icon. This will bring up your mouse properties. There are several tabs. Single click on the tab called Device Settings. Highlight the standard pointing device and select disable. Click on apply in the lower right corner of that window. The device should now show as No under enabled and your touchpad won't work.

Disable Dell Vostro 1540 Touchpad


Your problem could be that you don't have the driver installed.
Go to the dell site and then search for the Alps Alps TouchPad driver for Vostro 1540. Downlond and install. Restart your laptop and you should see an icon in the icon tray for the touchpad, you can click on that to disable it or use the shortcut key fn + f3.
Hope that helps.

I have an 2008 Dell Vostro 1510. Warranty is up. Cursor keeps jumping so that I end up typing in areas where I don't want to or it jumps to some icon and triggers it.


go to control panel, open Mouse Properties, touchpad tab
There you will have options for either TouchCheck, Or PalmCheck, enable and if there is an adjustment slider, have it mostly to the left (This disables the touchpad while typing, then when you stop typing, it will respond again)
Also if there is an option for Draglock, disable it
