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.....

Inspirion 1545 with win 7 having problems with mouse. I'll be writing a doc or email and the mouse pointer on screen goes everywhere. It will point inside the message and disrupt. Any ideas how to fix? ...


Hi,

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.

Thanks

A Ghost is moving my Mighty Mouse (screen saver turns off)


Chances are that the mouse is just drifting a bit. like, it's sitting still on the desk and the pointer starts moving on it's own on the screen. It's caused by dust getting on the optical receiver and drifting around on it. By no means is it a ghost though.

Cursor when using Logitech Trackball sometimes drifts up or down


I finally just was able to solve this problem! I saw somewhere that someone had made sure their primary mouse was selected under hardware, which got me thinking. I thought I had seen a second mouse option somewhere. So, I went into my Control Panel > System > Device Manager and click the arrow next to Mice and other pointing devices. Sure enough, there were two listed. A seemingly generic one and my Logitech I've been using. I right clicked on the generic one and chose disable and the drifting IMMEDIATELY stopped. I went so far as to re-enable that generic to see if it was a fluke because it had stopped drifting on its own yesterday, nope as soon as I enabled the generic device, drifting started again. So Happy!!!

Cursor drift


don't us the optic mouse with the roller mouse pad. what is happening here, is the optic trying locate a point. since the pad is not flat and smooth. the optic is doing search (meaning it is constantly looking for a landing point). since it can't fine one, it will draft.

hope that will help
