Question about Dell Vostro 1000 Notebook
My Dell Vostro, Windows XP, touchpad moves itself, selects text and deletes emails when I've hardly touched it. I went to the touchpad settings screen and set it to act only when I click, and to minimum sensitivity, but that did not help. How can I fix it?
I have a Dell Vostro also..awesome units..but that's another subject..unfortunately the area you changed is the only place to manipulate the touchpad. What I ended up doing was buying a USB wireless mouse. Now I can control it and it doesn't have a mind of its own..it just a little glitch in the computer make-up...sorry couldn't provide a better answer but this time there is no better answer. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Tips for a great answer:
Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon.
If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad.
Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.
Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button.
Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable."
Your touchpad is now unlocked.
hope this helps
