Hello there, this a well known problem with inspiron 4000's like a majority of other Dell Inspiron user's... After some time I've managed to fix it simply by downloading a touchpad driver (Tp2aa10i.exe) for Inspiron 4000 from a Dell website. The problem is the defect of the mousestick! And Dell is aware of it! Upon installation, simply disable the mousestick and the headache's gone! This way you can still use you your touchpad and mouse.....

It would appear that the left/right touch pad buttons have failed. You will have 3 options at this point in time. 1) Use an external wireless mouse such as a Logitech Wireless Mouse M505 for roughly $39.99 2) Use alternative features on the laptop. Left click is typically simulated by tapping or double tapping the touch pad itself and right click can be simulated, in most cases, by single tapping the icon and pressing the pop-up menu button, typically located between the right alt and ctrl buttons. 3) Search for a replacement component online and replace the component. Touch pad replacement will require you to remove all casing screws from the laptop and then remove the case. You will then expose the screws and cabling for the touch pad. I can not give more detailed instructions as this varies per laptop model.
may be its your own Problem, because when you will be writing email or docs you didnt have noticed that some how your hand would be touching to your mousepad. i think its the problem only if its not than yor mouse should have any problem if you are using any external USb mouse.
see if your touchpad settings have a setting that controls the sensitivity on the area around the touchpad where you rest your hands on the laptop. I forget what it's called, but most laptops have a setting to control that, so when you rest your hands on the laptop it doesn't affect mouse movement. When you rest your hands, if the sesitivity is too high, the mouse pointer will move when you place your hands to rest on that area.
