SOURCE: Dell Laptop Trackball Too sensitive!

Go to control panel. Select mouse. In the window that opens, select the dell touchpad tab. Click where it tells you.

Then, on the bottom left of the next window that opens, select "pointing stick settings." Uncheck the "tap to click" and the TouchCheck "Enable" boxes.

That seemed to work for me. you can also disable the touchcheck on the touchpad.

SOURCE: Dell Cursor Typing Blinking Problem

this is because you must deactivate your touchpad. you can do this by holding the Fn key and pressing the F* key that shows a picture of a touchpad in the same color as the Fn.
or you can go to control panel and turn it off in the mouse settings. but just attaching a mouse will allow the touchpad to stay active and therefore still be sensitive enough for your hand to "tap" th cursor.;
Good luck and pls rank this response! :D

Cursor gets stuck


make sure you are not touching more than one finger two you touch pad. You can disable multi touch gestures from the system preferences pane.

And also insure that your trackpad is clean as sometimes that will prevent the pad from detecting you pressure.

Cursor on my toshiba sattelite is locked


Hi

This is not automatic lock but you have turned off the trackpad

Hold the Fn key and press F9 key this will re-activate the mouse and then you can use it.

It is provided to turn off because then you type if your palm touch the trackpad the cursor will move and you may start typing somewhere else.

DO RATE MY SOLUTION.

I have a Toshiba LapTop Windows 7 My granddaughter pushed keys and now i can't get the cursor to move. I have tried shutting down and it is still frozen in the middle .


Are you using the trackpad to manipulate the cursor, or are you using an external mouse?

If you're using the trackpad, it may be as simple as using the Fn keys and the corresponding F keys at the top of the keyboard to enable the trackpad feature again. If that doesn't work, try plugging in an external mouse via USB port to see if that works.
If you're using an external mouse, then try to see if the cursor moves while using the trackpad.

Hopefully one of these options will give you control back over your cursor again.

My cursor has suddenly developed a mind of its own and floats around at will! How do I solve this please?


Keep the palms of your hands away from the "touchpad" -- it's sensitive to objects that don't actually touch it, but come "close" to it.

Also, check that none of the "arrow" keys on your keyboard are "stuck" in the "down" position.

If necessary, use CONTROL PANEL to "disable" the touchpad, and connect an external USB mouse.

Jumping cursor


This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.
