Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

My ps/2 mouse pad is erratic cursor goes all over the page unstable. Tried uninstall and reinstalling the drivers - no good!


Answers :

This is usually caused by moisture on the touch pad, this can be from something as severe as a spill to something subtle like damp/sweaty hands. if for example a small amount of moisture is trapped on one edge the cursor will keep trying to jump between that position and your finger position making the mouse erratic. If it is not this, then you may have a faulty trackpad, but I am inclined from the description to say its moisture.
