"Best place to ask this question is over on the Dell Community Forums, specifically on this board -- http://www.dellcommunity.com/supportforums/board?board.id=insp_generalThere will be more people with experience in the consumer side that can quickly address this question.I'm pretty sure you can disable the touch pad in the bios, and there should be a touchpad driver config in the taskbar on the bottom right that you can configure, or in the Control Panel you should see it there.But please post this on the Dell community forums, you'll get more eyeballs looking at it over there than here."
"Sorry, the forums where being moved when I answered the question. The new site is --> http://en.community.dell.com/Click on Laptop under "Tech Support Topics" in the left nav, or try this link --> http://en.community.dell.com/topics/home.aspx?tid=1a12d275-fc80-4d93-8d38-5d3af5f4be51"
Why not just answer the question? How is the touch pad disabled? Why send us other placed to ask the question? That is not helpful.
