Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

Erratic curser, jumping

\015 After many forums, I noticed that there are two specific problems being addressed. One is while typing the curser jumps to another line and continues from there. The other is when the curser jumps up and down the screen to the point you have no control of the curser. It will not respond to any commands except to stop at the hold of the touchpad. This happens for periods of time or until it is rebooted. My biggest problem is the latter. This appears to happen with both Windows XP and Vista on any computer.\015\012.\015

Answers :

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
