Hi,

There are different system types under Inspiron 14r:

Inspiron 14R (N4010)
Inspiron 14R (N4110)
Inspiron 14R 5420
Inspiron 14R 5421
Inspiron 14R 5437
Inspiron 14R SE 7420

Please provide complete system model.

Meanwhile, for Windows 8 systems try the following steps to disable touch feature on Windows 8 on your computer.

  •    Winkey + Q.
  •    Type Control Panel.
  •    Go to Hardware and Sound.
  •    Pen and touch.
  •    Click the touch tab.
  •    Disable "use your finger as an input"

Thanks & Regards
