SOURCE: Dell Cursor Typing Blinking Problem

this is because you must deactivate your touchpad. you can do this by holding the Fn key and pressing the F* key that shows a picture of a touchpad in the same color as the Fn.
or you can go to control panel and turn it off in the mouse settings. but just attaching a mouse will allow the touchpad to stay active and therefore still be sensitive enough for your hand to "tap" th cursor.;
Good luck and pls rank this response! :D

I have suggested in the past that people with this type of problem download Intellipoint Mouse software, from Microsoft.

It's a free download, and so far, I have had a good rate of this solution working.

Here is the download page from Microsoft.com,

SOURCE: how can I stop cursor from moving to new location

Does this happen when the adapter is connected or not.. most of the time is an adapter problem. try checking it on the battery and on the adapter. If you find change in the erratic moment on the battery. its an adapter problem.
To reinstall the touch pad driver for your machine. click on the following link.
For windows vista:- http://tinyurl.com/ntq4a3

For windows Xp: - CLICK HERE

Again, i would strongly advise you to change the adapter and use the computer. ;)

All the best

My mouse pad is too sensitive, the pointer jumps, scrolls when ever i touch the pad to move the cursor. what can i do?


To change the settings on your mouse pad you should be able to go to:
1. windows Start Button
2. Control Panel
3. Hardware and Sound
4. Devices
5. Mouse
This should get you into the settings for the mouse and you can find different settings to change. Depending on your system layout of these controls they might slightly vary, but that should get you into the mouse controls so that you can change the sensitivity.

Why is cursor jumping using Gmail or Facebook on windows 8


Your OS is out of date and now obsolete. Win 10 has the patches you require for stability.

On my CF-51 the touchpad is erratic and occasionally the screen cursor will jump. The OS is Windows XP. Everything else works perfectly.


I had similar issues with cursor jumping even while using a mouse.

Very simple & quick fix is to simply "disable" touch pad through "start up" mode use a mouse.
You have to disable in start up menu or pad will re-enable itself next time you boot.

I never liked a mouse before being forced to use it .... now it's not so bad.

Cursor jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:
  1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
  2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
    1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
    3. Click Mouse.
    4. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab. (Figure 1)

      Figure 1: Pointer Speed
    5. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
  3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.
