Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

Keyboard Malfunction I have a Dell Inspiron 1505. When I am typing my cursor will suddenly end up in another portion of the text (in particular after striking the "Y" but also randomly). Is there anything that will fix it? Nothing has spilled on it. Is it a cleaning issue?

Does the laptop have a touch pad type mouse device on it? If so, you might accidently be hiting the touch pad with the sides of your palms or thumbs while you are typing a document.

Your keyboard most likely has a stuck "x" key, try lifting it up so it is not stuck in the down position. If this does not fix the problem then the keyboard needs to be replaced.

When writing on my dell inspiron laptop, the cursor will suddenly change position and continue with my typing in another sentence - there is no particular position on the screen it goes to - what is up...


Hello.
If you don't touch the touchpad when typing, then it's a Windows problem. You need to download this program:
http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list
It's free. Basically, what it does is this: it disabled the touchpad when typing anything from the keyboard.
This problem is general to some laptops running Windows Vista or Seven. It's just like it would mistake the keys typed with touchpad instructions.
