Question about Dell Latitude D800 Notebook
I have two problems...one my mouse goes crazy it will go flying across the screen or it wont work at all.....whats up with that? i am new to a laptop..lol....also when my fan kicks on it lags my puter way down and its been kickin on alot lately...how do i fix this?
Fan problem - on my d820 latitude i called dell about the overheating and constant fan useage. they sent me a new heatsink to put on. when i cracked open the laptop i found out the problem was that the design of the laptop had a fan blowing air across a coil type heat sink to cool the laptop and that coil looked like a dryer lint screen. to fix it, open your laptop to 180 degrees and pop off the plastic part where the power button is. you'll see in the upper right hand corner the copper heat sink and you should be able to clean the lint off.

The fan kicks in because your processors temperature gets above a threshold, and this usually happens when your computer is under heavy load. And when your computer is under heavy load, the computer will most likely be a little slow. Thus the fan speed can only help your computer; you don't want to change anything there.
I'm a little perplexed about your mouse problem, post back with more details.
