Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
When i type using the keys on my laptop the flashing cursor/pointer just keeps going back to the beginning with every press of the keyboard and is very annoying. I am NOT brushing the Touchpad when i type, because it happens even when i type slowly, i have even tried Touchfreeze but no difference, and also tried using a wireless mouse and disabled the Touchpad but still no difference. So if anyone can help i would be grateful, thanks

I have the same dell computer, you have to down load the newest synaptics driver and disable the touch point mouse in the middle of the keyboard.
Here is the link.
Hope this helps!
It worked for me.

A simple but temporary solution would be to use an external mouse. Logitech sells several affordable and very nice wireless mice. Then you could disable the touchpad. I find them more trouble then their worth anyway and by using an external mouse you'll most definitely increase your productivity. :)

If you can log in by pressing the f8 key in safe mode, then try the system restore. If it doesn't work, it could be very well be a hardware failure.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the suggestion. I press F8 and nothing happens. Keyboard isnt recognized at all. But your info was helpful"
Touch Pad can be disabled on two different ways. The first one is using FN+F9 key combination or using DISABLE option in mouse properties in control panel

If the cursor is stuck/frozen when we use the touchpad it can be solved by the following method.
Switch off the laptop, disconnect it from power, remove the battery and keep pressing the Power switch for 30 seconds.
Then reconnect battery and the external power in that order and power on the laptop. the cursor will be moving again.
