Besides hot key FN+F3 (works only if drivers are all good, and from and many a PC are not)
ask at why not?
no OS stated, windows 10?
I have answered this many times here. (generic windows )
there are these ways,
1: in device manger click the PAD name and right click disable.
omg so easy , no? make it dead, but related pad button go dead with it but my guess is your using a mouse right,? UNSTATED!

2: pull the cable inside to it. pad cable,. ribbon.
3: if lucky the newer DRIVER for it has been upgraded,
and has this:
A: disable the pad. (or other things there)
B: (mine) shows, if USB mouse used, disable this pad.(best)

4: or cut up a milk carton, and make pad square and stick it down with double sided tape,

5: fill the pad pit with liquid epoxy, so it is DEAD.
6: remove the pad and replace it with dummy pad home made from plastic scraps. or buy a dead pad off fleabay? cute no?

did I get them all.? (all but violent attacks to the pad) as in punish it.

ask here, for help, this is real dell, no fact virus sites that are posted at fixya endlessly.
the real Dell is here, go there.

SOURCE: must disable touchpad

Is the problem being caused by your palm hitting the surface of the touchpad? This happens with many people. There is a setting for the touchpad which will let you set how sensitive the touchpad is, thereby eliminating your problem.

SOURCE: where can I find a x64 touchpad driver for Dell


First, an educated guess: considering that the Inspiron 1525 series debuted in the first quarter of 2008, one can assume that the chipset/motherboard are the same, which makes 'em all about a year and-a-half old, regardless of when the laptop was in fact purchased.

Next: how could s/he have "bought" it for themselves, considering the OS has not been released for sale to the public yet? Most likely, it was one of the many "free-for-download" betas or release candidates that have been kicking around the web since late January 2009.

And what difference does it make if s/he installed it themselves?

The question was: do any 64-bit drivers exist for this laptop and its (internal) peripherals?


In my (admittedly anorexic) scanning of the internet and Dell's I could not find any 64-bit drivers. :(

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1545 and the touchpad

a dirty pad will malfunction. FORTUNATELY, the 1545 usually has a good warranty, so before you wait any longer, get Dell on the phone and get it fixed. You will get it back in 10 days, like new.

I'm in need of the master bios password for Dell Inspiron 15 3521 service tag # 46J20.

There is no such thing as a 'master bios password'. One password, one machine set by the owner or administrator.

You have to strip the computer down to the motherboard and reset.

You can buy the password as shown here for $45

How to Perform a BIOS or CMOS Reset and/or Clear the NVRAM - Dell days ago - Locate the 2-pin password connector (PSWD) on the system board. Remove the 2-pin jumper plug and set the jumper plug aside. Connect your keyboard and mouse, then connect your computer and monitor to electrical outlets and turn them on. After the operating system loads, turn the computer off.

I want to deactivate my touch pad on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop. Please advise how

If you do not see a Touchpad icon in your systray(lower right), go to:

Start/Control Panel/System

On the left choose "Device Manager".

Select "Mice and other pointing devices" and highlight "Dell Touchpad"

Either right click and "Uninstall" or click the uninstall icon at the top.

Restart your machine and it will automatically update the driver from Dell which will put the Touchpad icon back in the system tray.

Click on this icon and go to "Device Select"

Check the "Disable Touchpad/Pointing stick when external USB mouse id present.

Dell Cursor Typing Blinking Problem

this is because you must deactivate your touchpad. you can do this by holding the Fn key and pressing the F* key that shows a picture of a touchpad in the same color as the Fn.
or you can go to control panel and turn it off in the mouse settings. but just attaching a mouse will allow the touchpad to stay active and therefore still be sensitive enough for your hand to "tap" th cursor.;
Good luck and pls rank this response! :D
