You can find some instructions on disabling the touchpad herehttp://www.labnol.org/software/disable-touchpad-on-laptop/14052/
and this link has a piece of freeware called TouchPad Pal which allows you to disable the touchpad while you're typing (which should be the only time it gets in the way really) http://download.cnet.com/TouchpadPal/3000-2084_4-11143760.html
Hope this helps!

Cursor problem


Disabling the touchpad on a Dell Inspiron can be useful when typing for long periods of time, or using an external mouse. Bumping or tapping the touchpad while typing can cause cursor jumping and unwanted results. Use the touchpad software to enable or disable touchpad controls. Download the driver for your touchpad at the Dell Support website.

Click on the "Touchpad" icon in the task bar. If the icon doesn't appear, you can download and install the driver for the touchpad from the Dell website, or choose "Start" and "Control Panel." Choose "Device Select" on the touchpad menu, or choose "Mouse" in the "Control Panel" menu and "Device Select." Click "Disable" under "Touchpad" to turn off the touchpad, or click "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick When a USB Mouse is Connected."

Unlock the mouse in dell inspiron m5030


1) Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.

  • 2) Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
  • 3) Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked.

    My dell touchpad doesnt always work when i tap it to click on links in my browser. also it sometimes doesnt work when i want to click into boxes to type passwords etc, i find i have to use the left mouse...


    Try using an external mouse. If that functions properly then you need to have your Palm-rest (top plastics containing touch-pad assembly ) replaced.

    My mouse is frozen please help


    try to restart the pc and check if the touchpad will still act on it. If not, try to use an external mouse and check if it works. Otherwise call Dell to possibly repair your touch pad..

    I can not disable touchpad of INSPIRON 1545 of DELL Computers There is no option for disabling touch pad in the MOUSE option of Control Panel


    Go to the Control Panel. Under the 'Hardware and Sound' options, click 'Mouse'immortal4u.png

    Since you have a Dell laptop, you'll have a special tab called 'Dell touchpad' in the window that pops up. Click on the touchpad picture in the window.

    In the new window that appears, click 'Device Select'
    immortal4u_1.png

    Click on the 'Disable' radio button to disable the touchpad completely. If you want to disable the touchpad of your Dell laptop only when an external device like a mouse is attached, check the last option that says 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present'

    immortal4u_2.png

    That's it. You've disabled your laptop's touchpad for good. If you don't find an option to manage your touchpad in Mouse settings, you have to install Synaptics drivers from here. Similar options can be found in other laptops as well.

    Good luck ! if your problem is solved don't forget to rate

    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.
