hi there you probably have the same problem as me with my dell m5040, part of the palm rest shorts with the mouse and becomes active so when your palm or wrist touches it the mouse icon moves and jumps.

My cursor does not stay where it is supposed to.


I think you need to buy a new mouse or test a diffrent one on your computer. You might also want to try and change the mouse settings. You can do that by right clicking the mouse icon in the taskbar and from there open the mouse control panel. mess around with the settings to change the speed at which it moves. If its not the problem then you might want to try and reinstalling your mouse driver. Dell computers have mouse drivers on the site. Takes a few seconds to download and install.

Dear Technician, While i am typing things, the mouse cursor replaces itself elsewhere and thus my typing shifts to the new place and continues typing from there. I then have to cut the words and...


You are probably hitting the touchpad on your laptop with the heel of your hand while you're typing. This will make the cursor move to some other place. It's not really moving by itself; you just aren't aware you're doing it. I would suggest turning off the touchpad while you're typing, and then turn it back on as needed. Compaq computers usually have a switch on the touchpad bezel to turn it off. Some people also plug in a USB mouse, finding it more convenient and comfortable if they want to move around on the document frequently.

Keyboard problem- cursor keeps jumping around when I'm typing


You may be inadvertently touching the touch pad with the side of your hand or fingers as you type OR the touch pad itself is bad and needs replacement.

Cursor moves but when i tap it nothing happens?


Down on your task bar on the right there is a little screen that shows a green circle when you move your cursor. This is the Synaptics Pointing Device. Place your cursor over that and click your left 'mouse' button (just below where you tap). You will see 'tap to click'. If you click on that it will change it to your 'tap' function. That should solve your problem, hopefully. Hope this helps.

The jumping around is you having your wrists too close to the touchpad, the touchpad is picking up signals from your wrists and moving the cursor to another area while you are typing. You can turn up the sensitivity on the touchpad properties to take care of the problem. The power adapter can be purchased on Ebay for approx. 30-40- dollars. Try to stay away from the very cheap ones...like 12-18 bucks, they are usually shipped out of Hong Kong, are cheap and get very hot. The other ones are in the USA, can handle the punishment and have warranties that actually are good. Just make sure you keep all your reciepts and paperwork.

chances are you are either taping the mouse pad or if you have one of those glide sticks in your keyboard, its probably that. If you right click on the mosepad icon in the bottom right tool bar (by the clock) click properties and in there you should be able to disable the glide stick and also disable the mousepad if it senses a usb mouse is being used. Let me know what you find out.

Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!
