Make sure the scroll lock button is OFF.

Download the following from the Dell Support Drivers and Downloads page.

Quickset

Alps Input Drivers

BIOS

After downloading these update install if starting with Quickset, Alps Driver then BIOS. After flashing the BIOS laptop will automatically restarts.

After it reboots. In Dell screen hold down the F8 then select safe mode then press enter key on it. Wait until it loads in safe mode. Try working in safe mode if problem persist if not then boot back to windows normal mode by just restarting the computer.

If problem persist in normal mode in windows then i suggest back up your files then perform windows re-installation.

In doing the reinstallation you need to use the windows installation cd came with the computer.
Boot to F12 then insert the CD windows then select to boot to CD the follow prompts.

My curser jumps all around the screen when I am typing, how do I make it stop


hi...

thats normal on many laptops... even on my Dell and Lenovo...

the trick is to disable the Trackpad when typing...

1) Click Fn + F3 keys together to disable the trackpad and then type
2) Click Fn + F3 keys together to re enable the trackpad and then type
3) Buy an external Keyboard and Mouse (Wireless one) and use them (I do the same)
4) if you have trackpad drivers & application installed then adjust the sensitivity of trackpad on it

Cursor on my toshiba sattelite is locked


Hi

This is not automatic lock but you have turned off the trackpad

Hold the Fn key and press F9 key this will re-activate the mouse and then you can use it.

It is provided to turn off because then you type if your palm touch the trackpad the cursor will move and you may start typing somewhere else.

DO RATE MY SOLUTION.

Sounds like your trackpad needs replacement. The part is available on major auction websites for around $10. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair. If you want to do it yourself, here is an Blackberry 8520 Repair Guide that shows how to repair a Blackberry.

Hi - I have a macbook and seem to have locked the keyboard - if I plug a mouse in at the USB it works but the mouse on the macbook isn't responded, nor are any of the other keys - is there a simple...


Hello sarahscarah,

I've repaired a fair share of Macbooks with the same issue, but just to make sure it is what I think it is I'll need you to do a few things.

This issue is thought to be caused by a bent/warped ribbon cable that is located under the battery. This cable is what connects the trackpad and keyboard to the rest of your computer. To test if this is the problem do the following.

  1. Verify that an external keyboard and mouse will work with your Macbook when plugged in to a USB port.
  2. Connect your Macbook to your power adapter and plug into wall.
  3. Unlock your battery by turning the dial on the bottom of your Macbook with a coin.
  4. Remove the battery and set it aside.
  5. Press down on the exposed trackpad cable with your finger.
  6. While pressing down on this cable try typing on your Macbook's keyboard and moving the cursor with the trackpad.

If this works then you've solved it, you can place a piece of "Kapton Tape" over this cable to hold it down, but this is a temporary fix. You will probably need your trackpad and keyboard replaced. If your macbook is still under warranty take it to an Apple store, show them the problem and have it fixed or replaced. If its out of warranty you'll be looking at a $200-$300 repair to have the trackpad/keyboard replaced by a technician.

Here's a picture of the exposed trackpad cable for reference.

Hope this helps, if so please leave positive feedback. Thank you.

Sounds like your keyboard may have gotten wet. Somebody needs to open your Blackberry and clean it from any corrosion and residue of the liquid. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair. If you want to do it yourself, here is an Blackberry 8520 Repair Guide that shows how to repair a Blackberry.
