The ALPS Touchpad in the HP dv4 causes random pointer movements

\015 No matter how high I set the palm rest settings, how low I set the touchpad sensitivity settings, I cannot get this thing to stop moving my cursor all over the place while I am typing. It is sometimes inconvenient to turn the trackpad off and use an optical mouse or simply type in the pre-mouse way, using cursor keys.I have heard this is a recurrent problem, read about it all over forums, especially with ALPS trackpads. but have yet to have seen a solution or even improvement (other than as noted above) and none of them are satisfactory during those times when I can't conveniently use a regular mouse.\015

Touchpad Sensitivity - Toshiba Satellite M55-S329: My cursor has recently begun to jump around like crazy when I type. I believe it's probably because my hands are brushing over the touchpad, which is overly sensitive.

Now what? How do I access that driver to help me? Any other ideas? (I know I can use an

I've been into all the settings for the touchpad and I can't find out either what this arrow graphic is, or how to turn it off!!! Any help would be very gratefully re
