About all I can suggest is to replace the touch pad or at least check that it is correctly enabled in bios and shows in XP hardware.

I wasn't able to find a replacement touchpad on the Dell website so I suspect you might not be able to get one. It might seem a little trite but I'm tempted to say you have already had this laptop as long as you can. Keep using it by all means with a plug-in mouse if that's what it takes but it's really not worth spending any $$ on repair.
