Make sure the touchpad hot key is enabled.

I believe it can be turned on and off by tapping on it in the upper left corner maybe?

I remember on my own Inspiron 6400 the touchpad would work at the login screen, but once Windows loaded the touchpad software would pop up a message insisting that "an alternate pointing device was detected" (regardless whether I plugged in my USB mouse or not) and quit working. Didn't bother to fix it since I almost always used a USB mouse.

Anyway, sounds like it's a driver thing - check with Dell like seavixen32 posted.
