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!

Your touchpad is just one case to sensitive. deactivate it by hitting "fn+ the tuchpad deaktivation key on your keyboard" and get yourself a mouse

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.

While typing the cursor will move to another section of the text and begin typing there. this occurs randomly and without warning


There are two common causes for this on Dell Laptops

1) brushing the touchpad with the palm, or brushing the case near the pad and triggering it accidentaly.

2) a circuit fault that cuases a phantom movement of the pad.

If your laptop has a sensitivity adjustment in the settings for your pad, it can help to resuce the sensitivity.

Cursor on my keypad jumps around


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.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

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
