Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a Gateway S-7700 series laptop. The problem I've had & seems to be getting worse is the synaptics touch pad mouse. The mouse pointer goes NUTS! & just jumps all over the place & when I'm typing the cursor will suddenly jump to another place on the page & while I'm a pretty fast typist I totally screws up my document, email or whatever I might be working on. Can you help me please?

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

Mouse pointer jumps when moving it on screen.


If you are not using a mouse pad, try that. Using the mouse on reflective or glass surfaces. Try another mouse to see if it has the same issues. Check your mouse settings in control panel to make sure everything seems ok. Update mouse drivers. Finally, you can try to uninstall / reinstall the mouse.

You can use a USB mouse and disable the touch pad in Device manager. you can find it by right clicking my computer going to properties and on the upper left you will see device manager. look for your touch pad....common one is synaptic this should solve the problem...most touch pads are heat driven....so even if you get close to it with your palm while typing it will read as if you touched it and move cursor accordingly. Hope this helps

I have a dell inspiron 2200 laptop. The touch pad stopped working, thus I had to get an external mouse. How do I fix the touch pad to work again????


You probably just need to reinstall the touchpad drivers. First, find the Dell Service Tag # (usually on the bottom of the laptop). Go to www.dell.com - near the bottom middle click the link under Support called "Drivers and Downloads". Click "Enter a Tag" and enter your Service Tag #. On the next page, select your Operating System and down below you will see a section for Input Device Drivers (probably a Synaptics driver). Download and install that driver and you should be able to use your touchpad again. Let me know if this helps. Thanks.
