Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
Dell has the diagnostics option for the mouse that you can do by tapping F12 while the computer turns on.. Choose diagnostics in the one time boot options.. Do a mouse diagnostics..
If it works there then the issue is with the drivers.. you can unistall and reinstall the drivers.. The issue will be fixed.. If it doesnt work in the diagnostics.. Take it to a local tech and replace touch pad

This happens for 1 of 2 reasons:
1. Either your wrist hits the mouse pad and that makes the cursor move
2. If your mouse moves all the time without your control you need to have your palm rest replaced
When this works vote me a 10

I have suggested in the past that people with this type of problem download Intellipoint Mouse software, from Microsoft.
It's a free download, and so far, I have had a good rate of this solution working.
Here is the download page from Microsoft.com,

Have a D600 myself and found anothe post that worked for me!
First, my problem was replying to emails the cursor would jump when typing usually back up into the middle of the text somewhere.
If this is similar, read on.
First, go to Dell's website, downlaod the latest driver for the Alps Touchpad: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R113813&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2514&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=7&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=17&fileid=149404
Download the driver but do not install yet. Note, this is for a Dell Latitude D600, Windows XP. Vista may have a different driver.
Open Control Panel/Mouse/TouchPad Tab/Touch Sensitivity Button. Open Touch Sensitivity, adjust below the halfway point on the slider. Try different settings, you may also want to check the "Tap off when typing" box.
If you do not show these properties as above, you probably don't have the latest driver installed. In that case, install the driver you downloaded above then come back and refer to the instructions.
I spend 90% of my day on this D600 and really love it, not a speed demon, but light enought to carry with one hand and is a great email/browser machine as you probably already know!

If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:
1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
c. Click Mouse.
d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.
e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
f. Click OK.
g. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.
4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.
5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.
