    Is it the same screen every time. Or just whatever is in the tray?

When you tap your touchpad it acts the same as a left-click action. accidentally skimming the touchpad when typing can be interpreted as clicking your cursor. If your cursor was over a different window than the one you were typing in, then you may have accidentally clicked out of the window where you were typing.
When typing try to place the cursor past the very end of your text and then if you accidentally bump the touchpad it won't mess up your work.

Go to control panel, Mouse, Synaptics or Touchpad tab. There should be an option either labeled Palmcheck or An option to disable touchpad while typing. That should resolve the issue

Dell studio touch keys won't work. the eject button stays lit and none of the media keys above the keyboard work when this happens.


Shut down your computer, remove AC power, remove the battery for about a minute. Put the battery back in, hold the power button for 30 seconds. This should reset it.

Inspiron 1545 keyboard problem


This is going to sound really weird but I found a fix. I've got a Dell studio XPS laptop and was getting annoyed by the same phenomenon. I discovered the problem was more common when my thumbs were close to/touching the touchpad. I cranked down the sensitivity of my touchpad and things got a lot better. Probably works for many different kinds of laptops.

For my machin - Steps to fix:
Mouse Control Panel: Dell Touchpad Tab: Click to change Dell Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Sensitivity: Move it from near "Light Touch" to the middle.

I hope this helps someone. :-)
