    I have a Dell Inspiron 4100. I can't make the cursor navigate to where I want it to go. When I use the onboard mousepad and select where I want to go, the cursor goes/moves to wherever it wants to go on the screen. My mousepad can't grat the cursor or control it's movement. There seems to be a pulling effect on the cursor to either the top right corner of the screen or the bottom left. Can someone help?

Sounds like a malfunctioning touchpad. You could try an external mouse and disabling the touchpad in device manager.

When typing, cursor jumps backward several spaces


Sounds like your mousepad is ghosting. This means it thinks you're tapping the mousepad as you type, which will make it type exactly where you nlast moved the curser to. First, try cleaning the pad thoroughly with a damp tissue, and dry it well... if that doesn't solve it, you could try adjusting the mousepad sensitivity controls on the control panel. Hope that helps.

Laptop mousepad doesn't work correctly


If it is a new Laptop then I'll not suggest you to open it for cleaning because you'll void the warranty period. You can check for the latest touch pad driver and update it once. it may help you.

Cursor stuck


If the mouse cursor is stuck, try looking for the mousepad toggle. Most models of notbooks have one or two ways to toggle the mousepad off. They are generally either a button right above the mousepad or a function key.

Look for a button that has two icons that appear to be mousepads, one with a line through it. If you press it (You might have to hold the Fn key located in the lower left corner if it is a function key), it should toggle the mouse back on if it was disabled in this manner.

If this doesn't fix the issue, try pressing the windows key to see if it pulls up the start menu. If so, try navigating to restart to see if that fixes the problem.

Lastly you can also try navigating to the device manager to see if the mouse drivers are missing etc. To do that press the windows key, navigate over to computer and press the alternate menu (directly left of the right Ctrl key) and choose properties. Use the tab key to navigate to the hardware / device manager tab. Once there look for the mouse driver.

If that doesn't help please post your laptop model, version of windows and any other relevant information you can think of.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

What does the light indicate above the mouse pad on my HP Mini Netbook? It is red and after I start up the cursor does not respond to commands.


I am niot familiar with this particular model, but based on what i have seen with other HPs, that means your mousepad is locked, similar to the hold function on an ipod.

My cursor jumps when i am writting a text


The keyboard is built in a way so that it is easy to accidentally tap the mousepad while you are typing. This will make your cursor jump., if you are using an external mouse, make sure to turn off the mousepad to avoid this issue by holding Fn and pushing the F7 button.

I used to have the same problem... Have you got any e.g customization packs installed, because if you have then theres a chance you will need to uninstall that.
