Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook

CURSOR HANGS UP IN CORNER OF SCREEN !

When using the computer the cursor will disappear into a corner of the screen for minutes on end. I can run it out onto screen but it quickly returns to a corner, If I am fast enough I can bring up task manager but the only programs shown to be running are what I am trying to use. If I can get to processes it shows "system idle" to be using 100% of CPU. Sometimes I can reboot and all is well (I can control the cursor) other times I have to just let it run - 30 minutes or more- and whatever is running in the background will finish or I will have to continue to reboot until I can get control again. I am running Windows XP Pro. I bought the laptop used already upgraded to WIN XP so I do not have XP disk. System Restore has never worked. It shows restore points but when I try to back up to a previous date I get an error message saying it was unable to restore. Thank you for any help.

This is a problem with the synaptic touch pad. First, it could just be a driver glitch. To rule this out, uninstall the drivers for it from the device manager, them reboot. The machine will find an reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work, then check the connector, under the keyboard. Disconnect it, clean the connector, the reconnect it. Sometimes the connections work loose or corrode slightly. If it still doesn't work properly, then I'm afraid it failing and will need to be replaced.

Why a black screen on xps l701x w7 i7 1.73


Black screen - no flashing white cursor in the upper left corner - no picture at all, i.e. the initial Dell start-up screen doesn't show up either:
- LCD is dead or isn't getting a signal - not an easy fix; or
- the LCD isn't being sent a signal - holding down the function [Fn] key and press display Function key to toggle through its settings (LCD panel only, Rear VGA output only, both LCD and VGA output)

Black screen - flashing white cursor in the upper left corner - the screen goes black after the windows loading screens come up but before the windows login screen comes up - it is probably a windows video driver problem. Try starting in Windows Safe Mode with VGA. Press [F8] after the Dell startup screen disappears to access the windows startup menu

My cursor disappeared on my Samsung 303C12. Is there a way to turn the cursor on and off?


It sounds like you turned off your track pad. On some laptops there is an indentation on the pad to turn on and off and some have buttons on the laptop. Did you go into your track pad properties to see if it is on? You can do this by clicking on the mouse on the lower left corner of your laptop or by going into control panel. I hope this helps.

Hello,
Try pressing on the windows button. Does it change something? Does the start menu pops up when you press the windows button in your keyboard?

Cursor jumps to the buttom right corner of the screen


I've got the same problem. I've personally identified it as the digitizer being triggered by the fan. You'll notice that if you rotate the screen away from the fan area, the jumping will stop. Also, if you don't run the computer too hot, the jumping won't happen. I told HP about the problem a while ago but they ignored me. I've been using my laptop for the past year with the digitizer disabled in the device manager.
