Does your disable button show in yours?

The touchpad works fine - my problem is - is that I DON'T want it to work and I'm trying to disable it.  Before I could just use the function key but that is also disabled and will not disable the touchpad.

FN + F3 is working correctly for me, disabling the touch-pad.

I have clean install of Windows 10 with touchpad driver from windows update.

After installing the Windows 8.1 driver it works better, but I still have problems. 

I still hear crackling noises once in a while, in games, or video editing.

And I have problems with the volume and Dell Audio Settings.

So...I'm waiting for and official Windows 10 Audio Driver from Dell.

Yep. Although the windows 8.1 driver works for quickset. The button for general settings doesn't work at all, and the one that opens the chosen app works once in a while; but it's not such a big deal.

If they would have said that Dell 7720SE has problems with Windows 10 it would be ok, but to brag that it was tested and works perfectly - when it clearly doesn't is a big NONO on my behalf. Get you s**t together Dell!

To make things worse you just don't know which version to use. The Windows 8 version (last update in 2014), or the Windows 8.1 version (last update in 2013).

I'm more concerned about battery degradation, than the button not working. I've had this lappy for 3 years and the battery is still doing OK and I still get 2 hours of battery life. I don't use the battery that often and i've had desktop mode, and extended battery life options enabled since day one. The battery would slowly discharge while plugged in, and I still haven't noticed that happening in Windows 10. 

This thread has went way off topic, but i just want to rant some more:)

I don't know if this is the case for all n7720's, but I still (A17 bios) have the GPU throttling bug, in which the GPU clock cycles from 0% to 100% if the GPU's not used (it never comes to a full stop of 135mhz). So i have to run Viber, or some other program on the 650M, and then the GPU finally settles. 

Well at least they did fix the battery-unplug-GPU throttle issue after 3 years, so who knows, maybe in another 3 years they will fix everything.

This is the best, worst laptop I have ever owned:)
