Hi,

Toshiba drivers can be downloaded from here

http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK

Find the right one for your model, download it, then just run the package. it will overwite your old driver with the latest.

Bare in mind that your laptop is not really a gaming machine and it's graphocs chip is not designed to run 3D games. It might struggle even with the new driver

When typing, cursor jumps to another line or paragraph


try updating the mousepad drivers, maybe they are not good. there may be new ones on the dell site that would work better with your machine. it sounds just like the issue you get with some sony machines where the drivers are no good as standard.

Cursor freezes when connected to internet


It's most likely a driver problem with the mouse it might be corrupted. Look at the mouse for the who made it. Then google the manufacturers website and add drive download to the search. Download and install the updated driver and your problem should be solved.

You can also use your back and restore function to reset your computer to an earlier date, that should fix the corrupted driver but updating the driver is always recommended.
