You're probably hitting the touchpad with the heel of your hand while typing. Many people do it without realizing it, and the computer is just moving the cursor to where it thinks you're telling it to go. If you're doing lots of typing, you may want to plug in a USB external mouse and turn off the touchpad. This eliminates the cursor jumping, and a regular mouse makes moving around a document and selecting text easier.
To be able to click on control panel options when your cursor does not move would require an EXTERNAL mouse. On notebook PCs, you will need a USB mouse.
It's a;so possible to use just the keyboard by pressing TAB and the arrow keys to switch between icons but is very difficult. USB mouse is the way to go. Most likely, you will have to disconnect the USB mouse at some point during troubleshooting to test the touchpad.
This happens for 1 of 2 reasons:
1. Either your wrist hits the mouse pad and that makes the cursor move
2. If your mouse moves all the time without your control you need to have your palm rest replaced
When this works vote me a 10
there must've been some prob with the mousepad/ external mouse driver.go to control menu->double click mouse->choose hardware tab->properties->driver->update driver... do this with ya motherboard/laptop cd/dvd in the cd/dvd rom. choose search software driver automatically. once ya done. restart and start using mouse as before.
i have latitude c610 and same problem happens with me too. i think that happens when i finish my brakfat and without cleaning my hands start using the touch pad. what happens according to me is that small particles of food(eg bread/dust particles) stuck in the corners or the body wall where the touch pad ends and keeps pressing the touchpad, thus causing the mouse to move to one direction. when i clean the corners and sides of the touchpad, it starts working ok !!
