Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook
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.
