Re: Dell laptop pointer problem

This is a very common problem for most Dells this age.
You can try this repair if you feel comfortable.
Remove the keyboard by removing the power button bar (just gently pry up from the right side working left)
re-insert the mouse cable which is coming from the pad/palm rest. Re-assemble.
Check if all the screws on bottom of the unit are tight, especially around the palm rest area.
Good luck

Erratic pointer

The erratic pointer in the dell inspiron 1545, is a common fault. The usual cure, is to unistall the driver. Reboot install the driver again. Also check your graphics settings. If that doesnt cure the problem. You will need to overwrite/erase your hard drive do a fresh install.

How does a touchpad work on laptops

a touchpad works off the static electrical charge that resides all living tissue as far as I know. if you were to statically charge that piece of metal you are referring to, it would work. as far as why the mouse pointer doesn't jump when you touch a specific spot on the touch pad is because people, in general, don't want it to so the software that controls it has been designed not to.

Where do I turn off my laptop

Power button is top left corner of keyboard above the "Esc" key.
If you are trying to shutdown from Windows 8, follow these steps:

1. Mouse over the little gadget in the lower right corner of the screen. (You can also move your mouse cursor to the upper left corner; same result. Or, you can press Windows-C on your keyboard.)
2. In the slide-out menu (known as the Charms Bar) that appears, click Settings.
3. Click the Power button, and then click your desired action: Sleep, Shut down, or Update and restart.

Ppo1l dell latitude laptop mouse pointer keeps moving to top right corner. doesn't stay stationery

Your mouse pad is probably damaged.

Try to boot a different OS like Linux and see the behavior.

if the problem persist, you can disable the touchpad and use external mouse instead.

HP TX1000 Tablet The cursor on my screen keeps going to the bottom left hand corner and stays there. The problem remains even when I used a USB mouse. Anyone knows what the cause?

click start button in lower left hand corner, then a pop out menu will come up, click control panel, then find mouse, click it, then go to pointer options and click it, see if theres a box checked that says something like (automatically move pointer to the default button in a dialog box). uncheck that box......hope this helps you.......

Mouse pad

you would be better off using an optical mouse that has a usb or ps2 connector ( depending on what your laptop supports ) usb would be better though less chance of pins bending as there are none on a usb connection ( at least not like a ps2 connector )

Also download the latest drivers for the touchpad and make sure that the scrolling options for or on the touchpad are not configured too thickly which will be in the touch pad settings.

Dell d600 mouse pointer jumps into corners if working on documents etc.; maybe if the system stores data in the cache or ram, the cursor wether jumps into the left down corner or moves slowly in directon...

What the issue is, is the eraser head mouse in the enter of the keyboard. When you type, it's putting uneccessary pressure on it, and it makes the pointer move. The only solution I know for this is to get the updated ALPS driver for the mouse, and disable the eraserhead (The updated driver gives you an option to do this), thereby using only the touchpad mouse.

Erratic cursor

It happens with both? Sounds like it may be a driver or motherboard issue.

Check the HDD for errors with Checkdisk (Start -> Run -> cmd -> Ok -> chkdsk /f
Try redownloading the touchpad/mouse drivers from the Toshiba site
