Is this a cXXX series Dell laptop? If so, this is a common problem with the touchpad and integrated wrist rest and bezel. You can disable the touchpad within the synaptics control panel if you use it. If you just use the windows driver, you may not be able to disable this. I will sometimes just disable both the touchpad and touchpoint and go with an external USB just so it does not wander.

Frozen pointer on my laptop , carnt even log in


Most likely problem is the connector on the mousepad. try and use a USB mouse first to eliminate the mousepad from the equation. if the pointer moves with a mouse then you have solved the problem. If it doesn't you have a bigger problem- either Virus infection or Operating System failure.

Is this perhaps a laptop? If so you may be brushing the touchpad with your palm while you type. I know that on my HP I disable the touchpad through the Device Manager. On my Wife's Gateway laptop I had to cut up an old credit card just larger than the TP and taped it over it.

Other than that, I have no idea

You can turn on "tapping" and will be able to tap instead of click. It seems like hardware problem. Take the computer apart and check the flat cable from the touchpad to the motherboard. Check with a mutltimeter whether the buttons are making contact on click.
