Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

I have trouble when typing. The letters skip all over text.

\015 While typing, the curser will move and I find the typed words jump to another part of the text. I then have to delete the letters, move the curser and start over. Very irritating. I have an optical wireless mouse (Logitech) Is there some kind of adjustment to be made? I have searched the help directory and find nothing.\015

Answers :

Do you have a small button on the top side of the touch pad that will allow you to turn off the mouse? I bet that you are accidently touching the mouse pad with your thumb while you are typing, and this is causing your problem. I have the same problem if I do not turn off the touch pad on my laptop.

You need to go into the control panel and open Pen and Input devices and adjust the touch pad sensitivity.

I have a Dell XPS M1730 laptop, running Windows Vista, and I am having a problem with my keyboard in that the letters skip and jump around when I type. I can be in the middle of a sentence and all of a sudden the letters jump to the middle of another sentence, or somewhere else in the letter or on the page. It is almost impossible to type a full paragraph or sentence without this happening. Can you help me. Thank you, Susan

Perhaps this is an elementary question, and reflects my ignorance, but I don't think so. I'd appreciate help. When I use Fine Reader 9 to convert an image to MS Word, some of the letters -- lots of them -- show in a blue background, i.e., highlghted in blue. I cannot find any way to get rid of this blue highlight, either by any command in FR9 or in Word. I have tried to get rid of this blue highlight by converting the text to WordPerfect, but that does not help, and there is nothing I can do in


I don't know much about Abby FineReader but I have a hunch it is failing to recognize all of the text in your document. So the text in MS Word with the blue background is actually a graphic and not text at all.I also think if you save th ... ABBYY Software House ABBYY FineReader Professional 9.0 Full Version for PC
