I had this exact same problem (along with many others) on my 1545. It is because of the awkward position of the touchpad that the ends of the thumbs come across and touch it and move the cursor. This is actually a pretty common thing with other manufacturers too, but it's real bad with the 1545 series. I never did figure out a way to disable it within Windows by itself, I did figure out how to stop it by using third party software. If you download a program called "TouchFreeze" it disables the touchpad whenever you are typing.

    (2)Type device in the search box and select device manager.

    (4)Right click on the Internal mouse and select disable.

    Thanks and Regards.

My inspiron 1545 types two letters at once


On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard.

You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination


would be [Fn+F1] keys. If you shut down to re-activate the keyboard you will loose whatever you are working on.


hope this helps

The cursor jumps around when I'm typing -- for example when I'm typing, it will just click itself up a few lines and start typing in the middle of another word


The touch pad can cause this problem. Go to control panel to make it less sensitive. I often drag a finger by accident over the pad and away goes the cursor. It is a major grump of mine also.

This web site shows the details, if you need them, to adjust the touch pad. http://www.ehow.com/how_2292964_adjust-vista-laptop-touchpad-settings.html

I do this for fun, so 4 thumbs if it answers your question.

Cursor jumps around


Does the cursor jump around when your hands are nowhere near the touchpad? The touchpads are heat and pressure sensitive. I personally have very warm (and sometimes sweaty) hands. I have this problem often when working on laptops. If I hover my hands over the pad, it causes the mouse to move. I've had to take a business card, put tape on one side of it, and use it as a flip-cover for the touchpad on most of my laptops. If the cursor moves around when you're nowhere near the laptop, then you may want to try disabling the pointing stick (if it has one). I've had several clients with laptops where the pointing stick mouse control go crazy and move and click on things.

My Dell Inspiron 6000 notebook computer curser "jumps around"


I frequently have the same thing when using a Dell laptop. The problem MAY be with the touch pad. Without noticing it, my thumb touches the pad and away goes the cursor!

So try this: Open the control panel and go to mouse. Look at the top for Touchpad. There is a setting in there for sensitivity. Reduce the setting so that you need to apply more pressure on the touch pad to move the cursor. Test it a few times to make sure it is still functional before closing the control panel. Then try typing something in a word processor and see if it is any better.

Good luck, and please let me know if this helps.

Only have half screen on my Dell Inspiron 1501


What your describing is a failure of the LCD or possibly the inverter cable connection to the LCD. Most likely an LCD replacement will be required.

LCDs run around $150 on Ebay
