Hi, the first thing I would check is the size of memory if it is less than 384 then you may need an upgrade to say 512. Although you may not have had this problem before as the system gets loaded with stored data this can affect functions such as keyboard and mouse as it puts a strain on a small memory. Hope this helps

I can't find a button to disable my touch pad on my laptop. the mouse cursor will jump around all over the page.


Hi dwain_ritchi,

Changing the pointing device settings in your laptop's bios is the easiest way to disable the touchpad. Please follow the steps below for additional information:

1. Turn on your computer. Press F2 when Dell logo comes up. It will open the bios setup program.

2. Now, press Alt-p three times to get to page number 4. Near the middle of the screen you should see an option called Pointing Device. Please change it from touchpad - PS/2 Mouse to just PS/2 Mouse (this also works fine with USB mouse). Press ESC to exit the bios, make sure to save the changes.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My cursor on my Dell inspiron 1525 laptop is stuck in the middle of my screen the touch pad isn't working either I was wondering how i could fix this


Try an external mouse. You might have to turn off the touchpad in BIOS (F2 key on boot will get you into setup). Look for Mouse/Touchpad under 'Post Behavior' or perhaps elsewhere (differently displayed in various BIOS setups).

Touch pad possessed.


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

For extra USB ports, purchase a USB hub($15 -$20). That way you can add at least 4 USB ports to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
