Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1526 Laptop ?

My touch pad is SUPER sensitive, when I type, my cursor ends up all over the place. I read up on hitting the f7 key, but I am totally computer illiterate. When you guys say hit the function key, do you mean... another key and the f7 or just the f7, when I hit the f7 i get a message talking about Caret Browsing??? If I am to hit another key, which one is it?
