    I have a Dell Inspiron tunning Windows XP. I once turned off my touchpad (I only use pointing stick), but I don't remember how to reactivate the touchpad.

    How do I reactivate it? Thanks.

    Was it a switch under the keyboard?

    No, it was somthing that was accomplished through control panel, or some other very similar application.

    I looked in my Control Panel and don't see anything, but I don't have a Touchpad, so...... :(

    it is in the BIOS, "disable touchpad when mouse attached" or something like that, then just choose yes or no. If not that than there should be a special dell icon in the control panel, open that and play around. I am using 98 on a dell inspiron and it is in the bios
