Dell Cursor Typing Blinking Problem

\015 I am using Dell Inspiron 1525 and have already attached an external mouse but the cursor still jumps to wherever my mouse is when typing. (it is still jumping as I type this)This is getting very inefficient and frustrating. HELP! :(\015

Answers :

This is because you must deactivate your touchpad. you can do this by holding the Fn key and pressing the F* key that shows a picture of a touchpad in the same color as the Fn.
\015\012or you can go to control panel and turn it off in the mouse settings. but just attaching a mouse will allow the touchpad to stay active and therefore still be sensitive enough for your hand to "tap" th cursor.;
\015\012Good luck and pls rank this response! :D

The touch pad mouse cursor on my Dell Inspiron 4000 ME/OS IE6 has become overly sensitive and needs resetting. I looked everywhere to find how to do this.
