Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My cursor skips around when typing. Still skips after covering keypad. Dell Inspiron 6000, Vista Premium.

Answers :

I have a Dell Inspirion and have the same very annoying problem. It has to be in the touchpad, because it happens whenever I am typing. It must be something about the sensitivity when palms are resting on the laptop (BUT NOT TOUCHING THE TOUCHPAD). I am NOT touching the touchpad when it happens, but only have my palms resting on the board. I hope I can fix it.
