Re: Dell laptop pointer problem
This is a very common problem for most Dells this age.
You can try this repair if you feel comfortable.
Remove the keyboard by removing the power button bar (just gently pry up from the right side working left)
re-insert the mouse cable which is coming from the pad/palm rest. Re-assemble.
Check if all the screws on bottom of the unit are tight, especially around the palm rest area.

What the issue is, is the eraser head mouse in the enter of the keyboard. When you type, it's putting uneccessary pressure on it, and it makes the pointer move. The only solution I know for this is to get the updated ALPS driver for the mouse, and disable the eraserhead (The updated driver gives you an option to do this), thereby using only the touchpad mouse.
10 envelopes The print side of the envelopes faces up. The envelopes are loaded vertically against the right side of the paper support. The stamp location is in the upper left corner and printed with landscape orientation.
NOTE: For Japanese customers: If you are mailing within Japan, the envelope can be printed with portrait orientation with the stamp in the lower right corner or with landscape orientation with the stamp in the lower left corner. If you are mailing internationally, print landscape orientation with the stamp in the upper left corner.
The paper guide rests against the left edge of the envelopes. You select the correct envelope size. Select the next biggest size if the exact envelope size is not listed, and set the left and right margins so that your envelope text will be correctly positioned.
