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."

Dell Latitude Portable (2008 or newer) has jumpy cursor when typing


The Touchpad driver setup has options to keep the cursor from jumping while typing.
  1. Open the Touchpad Properties
  2. Touchpad Settings
  3. Enable the TouchCheck option, set the slider to minimum. (TouchCheck disabled the touchpad while typing. The Slider adjusts the delay. Minimum is .5 second delay, and each notch and additional .5 second delay)
Other options that may cause user problems are Draglock and Tap to Click under Touchpad Settings, and Scrolling and Zoom Settings of Touchpad Properties.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop and my cursor jumps when im typing e-mails


If your hands are really warm they don't even need to touch the touchpad in order to move the cursor. You can go into "device manager" and disable the touchpad and just use a wireless mouse instead.

Dell Inspiron N5040 touchpad not working while charging


If battery works and ac adapter has problems that means electrolytic capacitors maybe dried up(not supplying the current needed to run the laptop) and has to be cured by using the laptop more often.

Hi, I just received a Dell Vostro laptop and when I am typing the cursor jumps to a different location. HELP, it is very frustrating. Thank You, Janet


Most likely, you're hitting the touchpad with the heel of your hand while you're typing. This makes the cursor move to where the laptop thinks you're telling it to go. Just try to keep your wrists up a bit. You can also turn off the touchpad, either with a switch (if your model has one) or through the control panel settings. If you are doing a lot of typing, you might want to connect a USB desktop-style keyboard. Many people find these much easier to type on, and it will keep your hands away from the touchpad.

Jumping cursor of a


Hi! I think youre probably having a jumping cursor where the cursor jumps from one place to another while typing an email or something. You may got to control panel - hardware - mouse then look for the check box that you can tick on that says "Tap off while typing" and this should fix the problem. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com!

Dell Cursor Typing Blinking Problem


this is because you must deactivate your touchpad. you can do this by holding the Fn key and pressing the F* key that shows a picture of a touchpad in the same color as the Fn.
or you can go to control panel and turn it off in the mouse settings. but just attaching a mouse will allow the touchpad to stay active and therefore still be sensitive enough for your hand to "tap" th cursor.;
Good luck and pls rank this response! :D
