Dell Inspiron 1526

I just bought my notebook and when I start typing the cursor will randomly move to wear my pointer is int the middle of typing and begin typing there. I have never seen anything like this before. Also on the touch mouse pad, if I barely touch the bottom of it with my finger it is like I just hit enter. Please help. Thanks

    I have the same problem and I'm an excellent typer. Something is definitely wrong with the keypads and the mousepad. CB

    I have the exact same problem and called Dell. I bought the computer my inspiron 1526 @ Best Buy, so they told me to go there and it would be covered under warranty because it sounds as if it is a hardware issue. However, I believe this problem started after I plugged a USB mouse into my computer. I have not gone to Best Buy, yet. However, this problem has made me consider dating a member of the Geek Squad...ha ha ha!

Well, technically it is not moving it backwards, it is moving the cursor to wherever the 'pointer' is.
You need to STOP resting your palm(s) on the Touchpad.

When you touch it, it will move the cursor to wherever the 'pointer' is....which is likely where you started typing.

You can also turn-off the touch-pad if you will be doing lots of typing. This is done by pressing [Fn] and [F3].

Mouse cursor not moving on a Dell laptop


You will have to check the Mouse Settings.

Click Start and then control panel.
Look for Mouse and then Pointer Options.
Check for default settings.

You may also want to look for Drivers but before that i would suggest you try this mouse on a different system or a different mouse on your notebook.

Step 1: Start up your computer and as the computer logo appears (such as Dell orHP) hit "Ctrl>F11" simultaneously. This may be different fordifferent machines, but the most common keys to hit are"Ctrl>F11." If this does not work, the F8 key has been said towork for certain machines.Step 2: Select "Repair My Computer" from the list of menu options thatappear and press "Enter."

Dell Inspiron B130


Hello, this normally happens on laptops. I think that it is from the sensitivity of the touch pad. You would have to check the position of your hands when typing since when your finger happens to touch the pad unexpectedly, the cursor quickly jumps to where ever the mouse pointer is: As a result, whatever you type next will rather go there instead of your current position.
Hope that helps
Thanks
