    Very erratic cursor that seems to have a mind of its own...travelling to different places on the screen whenever I type. Very, very annoying.

Issue most likely caused by the pointer button on the keyboard. You can download the driver/program from Dell.com and that has an option to disable the pointer. or just replace the keyboard.

Cursor problem


Disabling the touchpad on a Dell Inspiron can be useful when typing for long periods of time, or using an external mouse. Bumping or tapping the touchpad while typing can cause cursor jumping and unwanted results. Use the touchpad software to enable or disable touchpad controls. Download the driver for your touchpad at the Dell Support website.

Click on the "Touchpad" icon in the task bar. If the icon doesn't appear, you can download and install the driver for the touchpad from the Dell website, or choose "Start" and "Control Panel." Choose "Device Select" on the touchpad menu, or choose "Mouse" in the "Control Panel" menu and "Device Select." Click "Disable" under "Touchpad" to turn off the touchpad, or click "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick When a USB Mouse is Connected."

Cursor on my keypad jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.

2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.

a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.

c. Click Mouse.

d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.

e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.

f. Click OK.

g. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.

3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.

5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

Cursor is jumping while I'm typing, had this problem a while ago and can't remember how to fix it


There's a setting for the touchpad component that prevents inadvertent slips and slides of your palms over the touchpad from causing the cursor to jump around. I forget the exact name, but once you see it you'll know it. Go to Control Panel->Mouse->Hardware and you may see the touchpad configuration screens.
Good luck!

My cursor jumps while I'm typing


Go into the control panel and then the keyboard icon. You can control the speed in there such as the repeat rate, repeat delay, and cursor blink rate.

Also go into the mouse icon in the control panel and you can control the speed and such in there to since thats worth a shot.
