Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook
What has been happening as of late, that my touchpad would scroll up and or sometime freeze/lockup on me or act erratic. The only way I can force to move correctly is if I HOLD DOWN ANY KEY which is so odd, and then it move correctly. It would scroll up on my internet pages or if I'm playing a computer game, like some 2D game that allows to move in different directions, well it would lockup my keyboard and make it move up every TIME! I got so annoyed I looked for ways to disable this piece of **** and use a mouse, sadly though my program I found is half-working, but I'm still having the odd scrolling issue, but less interfering now, is there any true way to disable this thing completely? Also it keeps jumping around my texts even as I type this, it's really made me mad.

I don't know if this helps.

SOURCE: Touchpad problem
Hi Stores, First off check to see if you have the Synaptics touchpad driver installed on your laptop. Go to the control panel, then add remove programs and look for touchpad. If you have it AND if you don?t configure the pads sensitivity or take advantage of the software?s ?features? I would suggest you uninstall it. My users (and I) have nothing but problems on the laptops that have it. Windows has default support for the device and it does fine as long as you don?t need any of the special features the software driver provides. It may be a good idea to make sure you have the software to reinstall it if you don?t like the results. If this doesn't work for you let us know and always please don't forget to rate this solution once we're done.

I had a C600 do the same thing. It kept happening but I got some control over it by blowing around the edges of the touchpad with canned air and then cleaning the touchpad agressively with 99% isopropyl alcohol and a soft lint free cloth. If that makes a noticeable difference then we are on the right track. If the problem becomes unmanageable touchpad replacement may be in order. Let me know if this helps. If you need further solutions I will research further and post as data becomes available.

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.
Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

you need to isolate this issue first.
where are you typing? inside IE or in MSWord?
If both has issues then try typing in the DOS Command Window. If same issue try to boot in safe mode and check if you will still be getting same issue in safe mode. If all yes try to check the bios and update it by downloading the latest bios version from the support site from dell.

Please go through the below step, you can able to do it.
1) Shut down the Dell Latitude D620 if it's currently powered on. Click "Start" in the left-hand corner of the screen to access Windows' shut down options. Alternatively, press and hold the Latitude's power button, located on the top edge of the laptop's keyboard.
2) Turn on the computer by pressing the laptop's power button.
3) Press and hold "F8" on the top of the laptop's keyboard immediately after turning the computer on. If the Windows logo appears on the screen, you're too late and must repeat Steps 1 through 3 again. If you pressed it in time, a list of text options will appear on the screen.
4) Use your keyboard's arrow keys to scroll down to "Repair Your Computer." Push the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
5) Choose a language from the next list and select "Next." If you've password-protected your laptop, you will be prompted to enter your user name and password at this time.
