    In my Dell Inspiron 1525 the cursor changes placement while you are typing; that is, you end up typing in a different line, at the beginning of a sentence or even in a different box! It seems like the mouse clicks itself!

    I have the same problem. It is so frustrating

    Not an issue of inadvertantly touching another key.  I can recreate the problem typing  "tom" quickly.

    I thought I was the only one, and I can assure you that I am not clicking on the touch pad. It drives me absolutely insane. Anyone have a fix or know if there is a fix to this now common issue ?

    In Vista there is no icon for the touch pad in Control Panel / Mouse.

    What do you mean by jump back?

I've been struggling with this issue as well. I type really fast so I thought i was inadvertantly hitting the touchpad and moving the cursor. Maybe, maybe not. But today I discovered that changing one of the dafault settings for the touchpad has eliminating the jumping cursor trouble and I can type fast again without constantly checking my screen to see which line I'm actually typing in.

Here's what I did: Go to the control panel and the mouse and click on the icon for the touchpad and uncheck the touchpad setting "tap to click"

I also put my speed and sensitivity about in the mid-range. (Another suggestion that didn't work was to make my touchpad less sensitive).

Happy typing!

You might be accidentally tapping the touchpad, try typing with your hands raised a little bit higher and see if that helps.

Hi, I have a problem with my Dell Inspiron 1525. Whenever I type, suddenly the pointer jumps to different place. For example, I could be typing on on line 12 and all of a sudden I am typing a couple...

If you are hearing an intermittent beeping sound at the start of the computer, its an indication that there is a locked key, if not it can be within your Windows.Create another Profile/Account and check if the same thing happens.

Enter BIOS Setup. At the Dell logo press F12 --> BIOS/System Setup. If the same occurs then its possible that a certain key is locked. Run the 32-Bit Diagnostics (At the Dell logo press F12--> Diagnostics )a an Extended Diagnostics --> Custom Test then do the Keyboard test you can test your keyboard's keys one by one to identify which key is locked. If under Warranty, call Dell Tech support, replacing the keyboard will resolve the issue.

However, if already out of warranty, you can try using an Compressed Air Duster can and spray it to your keyboard's keys to be cleaned up.

Cursor jumps around when typing. It will go anywhere in the document. Happens in all programs.

What type of keyboard you are using (PS/2 or USB)? Is that a regular keyboard or multimedia keyboard? You need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below.

If you are using a USB keyboard:

1. Connect the keyboard into different USB ports of the computer.
2. Connect the keyboard into different computer.
3. Try using different keyboard to see if the problem will persist.

If that is a wireless keyboard:

1. Try replacing the battery
2. Connect the receiver into different USB ports.

Check the keyboard settings:

1. Go to the Control Panel > Keyboard
2. Adjust the keyboard settings and speed.

Hope it helps and have a great day!
