Question about Dell Latitude E6500 Laptop
It seems either the Drivers are not installed or there is some hardward issues(Cable disconnect or Dust).
For drivers you can check (Start > COntrol Panel > System > Properties > Device manager) There should not be any yellow , Red mark. If it is then you need to install the driver first.
If that is OK then you need to make sure that the cable connection inside the Keyboard panel are OK.
As a temporary basis you can just put some Palm Stroke on the Back of Touchpad.. That can resolve your issues.
You can restart also once.

Press the touchpad function key and then release both keys. If this does not enable your touchpad, try holding the "Fn" key down and pressing the touchpad function key twice in a row.

Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.
Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.
Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
hope this helps
