Curser jumps around page when I'm typing

\015 It jumps ramdomly. I take great pains to make sure I'm not to touch the touch pad\015

Answers :

The cursor jumps here and there becasue of the adapter in certain dell laptops. Contact Dell technical support for more information on this.
here is what you can try before calling them:
\015\012open support.dell.com and click on drivers and downlaods and then enter your computer service tag and then you would see a list of drivers and then in the section of input drivers you would see the touchpad drivers install them. also you may need to update the BIOS. for that save the setup file on the desktop and right click and run as an administrator and then update the bios.
\015\012if none of above works, call Dell and get the touch pad replaced.

This caused by two possibilities, first being a corrupt driver...it is not a setting problem. What I generally do in a case like this is go to the control panel > device Manager (in XP, the device manager is in the "system" folder and under the hardware tab) scroll down to mouse, pointing devices, click on the + sign and right click on the touchpad. Choose to uninstall the device and hit apply. Do not check the box to delete the drivers also, you want to keep the drivers. Reboot the laptop, when windows loads it will recognise new hardware and want to load the drivers for it. It may even ask you to allow it to check with windows update for a fresh driver, click ok and let windows work. When it is finished, reboot once more.
\015\012The second possibility is you have a piece of malware that causing problems. Go to www.filehippo.com and download MalwareBytes Malware Remover, it is a great tool for removing all kinds of spyware and malware that most of the time you have no idea you have. When installed, choose to perform a quick scan and delete anything it finds.
