Having problems with your Dell XPS M1530 Laptop ?

Cursor jumping around when typing on a Dell 1530

\015 I've got a Dell 1530 and the cursor seems to be jumping around when typing. At first we thought it was the touch pad pointing device but then seemed to be doing it when hitting the "Y" key, but not consistently. It could be the position of your hands over the touchpad that is causing it and particularly when typing "Y".\015\012\015\012Any ideas, is the touchpad sensitive to light or very light pressure?\015\012\015\012Graham...\015

Answers :

It is most likely the touch pad...a way you can tell is if you have a USB mouse, turn off the touch pad and use the USB mouse...go to type and see if it still jumps around.
