Should be under Dell touch Pad. But as has beensuggested, return it. It has mores problems than skipping typing.

You may be able to disable the Touchpad in BIOS Setup. The Users Guide for the laptops should tell you how (if it can be done). If you don't have it you can get it from the manufacturers support web site.

Finally found it but there is no option to disable it. This computer IS going back, but I'd like to know what to do with my previous computer that has had the same problem. I am attempting to keep NO contact tith the touch pad while typing and it seems to be working so far.

If you open the Touchpad settings (right click on it Touchpad icon in Taskbar), look for one called Tap to click and uncheck it. That may resolve the problem.

I don't have an icon for that in the taskbar unless it is one that is hidden and it will not open from the taskbar for me. But I will check my other computer (older one) to see if I can do that on it. Anxious to send this one back!!

When I don't see an icon for the touchpad on a laptop it usually means the full driver has not been installed. Go to the Dell web site (Welcome to Home User Support) and find the driver download area for your laptop, try downloading and installing the touchpad driver.

You should then see an icon in the taskbar and be able to disable Tap to click.

I was able to get the touchpad in the taskbar by having the items in the taskbar only combine when the taskbar is full. After I got it there, I right-clicked on it which opened the window with options. But there is no option there to disable Tap to Click. Must be something with Windows 7 or Dell??

Return it while you can. Also try to figure out what is installed on both systems to create this error.

It is going back. I am understanding that it is the touchpad which is super sensative that i scausing the problem as more and more have had the same problem. On the 2004 Dell Inspiration, the touchpad is in the taskbar, and I can open it. It says at the window to click the touchpad in the window to change the settings, but when I click on it, the window disappears.
On the 2011 Dell Inspiration, the touchpad icon is NOT on the taskbar but when located in the control panel, there is no way that I can figure out how to change the settings other than deleting it which I would not want to do.

As I mentioned before. Download and install the Touchpad driver from the Dell web site and you will then have the icon in the Taskbar and be able to change the Touchpad settings and even disable it.

Just had a thought. You should be able to disable the Touchpad in Device Manage / Mosue.
