I am not sure if this is the right place for this question, but...
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 that I have removed Vista and loaded XP on it. I never use the touchpad and it really makes it hard for me to type. As I brush across it with my thumbs it seems to always move my cursor, which most of the time I don't notice till after I have type a few words in the wrong place. Is there a way to disable it? Something simple as I would like to have it available in times of emergency. I have searched on my pc and I don't seem to find anywhere to turn it off/on.
