Crazy curser action on Dell inspirion 1570


Are you using the Touchpad or external mouse?

When typing, cursor jumps backward several spaces


Sounds like your mousepad is ghosting. This means it thinks you're tapping the mousepad as you type, which will make it type exactly where you nlast moved the curser to. First, try cleaning the pad thoroughly with a damp tissue, and dry it well... if that doesn't solve it, you could try adjusting the mousepad sensitivity controls on the control panel. Hope that helps.

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

Why does my curser jump when I'm typing a word. It jumps so it may type some where else.


Sometimes because the keyboard bent for the pressure on it or from somewhere on the shell of your notebook. So try not to put a hand on the notebook but just fingers on keyboard. Sometimes you hand slightly touch the touch pad and send the cursor somewhere else. you can try to cover the touch pad or disable it while typing.
