I have the same problem, but even if it a universal problem, as always, I say, you piece of @#*$& Dell. I blame every problem on Dell, it makes me feel better about myself for throwing money in the TRASH for the Dell.
$2000 and it overheats, is slow, and then the HD dying twice problem, and then the mobo dying, and then the CPU dying. I am gentle with it too...
I ahte my Dell. That typo was Dell's fault!

I love bashing dell, its so fun isn't it?

XS RULES!!! I have officially referred you.

What kind of laptop do you have? I've never heard of one with an off switch for the touchpad. I'd like to know.

I have a HP nx9010, its a business notebook, it has a little button just above the touchpad, not sure if all HP models have it

I like my dell XPS and don't have problems typing around it's centered touchpad. It also has a erasor stick and two extra buttons if I want to use it that way. Dell is coming out with some higher end systems that of course can't compete with homebuilt, but are great for those of us that want some power, and don't have the time to build.
