Hi jimneely ,Welcome to the forums, You need to redownload and install the Synaptics touchpad driver Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States] Unfortunately there are no Windows 7 32bit drivers so install the vista 32bit drivers they may have to be installed in compatibility mode
Here is the link to the Windows 7 32bit drivers (senior moment )
