Regular answer for this problem is to update BIOS / Touchpad drivers. Since you have already disabled the internal touch pad, can you also check if you have a track-stick that needs to be disabled. That should fix your problem!

SOURCE: Touchpad Sensitivity

Click on the start menu and select "Control Panel". Once in the control panel, select "Hardware and Sound". Once in the hardware and sound menu, click on "Mouse". Once the mouse menu comes up, there should be a tab labeled "Dell Touchpad". Click on that tab and then click on the large touchpad icon to take you to the touchpad options. Once in the touchpad options menu, click on "Device Select". Once you click on deivce select you should see the option to "enable" or "disable" the touchpad.

SOURCE: Cursor jumps around

I have suggested in the past that people with this type of problem download Intellipoint Mouse software, from Microsoft.

It's a free download, and so far, I have had a good rate of this solution working.

Here is the download page from Microsoft.com,

SOURCE: cursor on my keypad jumps around

If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.

2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.

a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.

c. Click Mouse.

d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.

e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.

f. Click OK.

g. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.

3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.

5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

I have an 2008 Dell Vostro 1510. Warranty is up. Cursor keeps jumping so that I end up typing in areas where I don't want to or it jumps to some icon and triggers it.


go to control panel, open Mouse Properties, touchpad tab
There you will have options for either TouchCheck, Or PalmCheck, enable and if there is an adjustment slider, have it mostly to the left (This disables the touchpad while typing, then when you stop typing, it will respond again)
Also if there is an option for Draglock, disable it

Cursor jumping around when typing on a Dell 1530


It is most likely the touch pad...a way you can tell is if you have a USB mouse, turn off the touch pad and use the USB mouse...go to type and see if it still jumps around.
