Dell Inspiron 1440 :: Over Sensitive Touchpad - Cursor Jumping All Over The Place

Oct 2, 2011

My Inspiron 1440 laptop running on Windows 7; I have always had the problem with the cursor jumping all over the place and sometimes it just deleted the whole of document by itself.  So frustrated to use.  I just found that it's a known problem as it happens to many of the other models. What does Dell Support have to say about this?  It takes me forever to type this message as it keeps jumping around wherever the mouse pointer is.

Dell :: Laitude E6400: Jumping Cursor From Over Sensitive Touchpad

Mar 12, 2010

I am unable to type more than a couple of minutes without my cursor repositioning itself. The problem is inadvertent "contact" between my palm/lower thumb and the touchpad. I put contact in quotes because it's not even clear whether actual contact or mere proximity is the problem.

Brief background: I worked with Dell service and we agreed that the problem is an overly sensitive trackpad. We tried changing the TrackPad settings to no avail. They authorized a replacement trackpad which was installed by a service tech (along with a new mother board after he accidentally killed the computer while replacing the trackpad).

Result: Still no improvement.

FYI: My Touchpad settings are Touch Sensitivity 6/8; Tap to Click: On/Medium Speed; TouchCheck: Enabled/Minumum. Scroll: enabled

As you can from the above, I use the TrackPad for all my control (including selection). I have tried the most obvious solution -- turning up the TouchCheck -- and find that it renders the tap to select function useless. At this setting, it often takes 2-3 clicks to make a selection which is obviously unacceptable.

Dell Inspiron 15 3520 :: Cursor Jumping And Moving To Other Lines When Typing

Jan 12, 2013

I teach online and my new Dell laptop Inspiron 15 3520 is useless.  I cannot use it in online chat with students because now the cursor is moving to other lines of text and inserting my typing.  I uninstalled the touchpad driver as that seems to be something recommended here.  I tried to reinstall from the Dell website and it failed.  So now I not only have an awful computer but a useless one.  I'm regretting the Dell decision after just a week.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Touchpad Is So Sensitive

Dec 9, 2014

I have a Inspiron 1545 and the touchpad is so sensitive that when I am typing, if my thumb touches the pad it usually moves the curser somewhere else on the screen and I continue typing in the middle of a different sentence.Is it possible to switch off the touchpad as I use a mouse almost 100% of the time on it?

Dell :: Jumping Cursor

May 23, 2009

I am having a problem with my 9 month old Dell XPS 1530. When I type for a while (a paragraph or so) the cursor will inadvertently jump from the end of the sentence where I am typing to somewhere in the middle of the paragraph. This is a real annoyance and at first I thought I might be hitting a key on the keyboard causing this. However, I gave the laptop to my father in law and had him use it for a short while. He experienced the same thing at least 6 times over the period of 10 minutes. I guess Im going to have to call Dell,

Dell Studio 1558 :: Cursor Jumping Erratically Or Freezing

Feb 20, 2013

My Dell Studio 1558 cursor is either jumping erratically or freezing. I have had the laptop for a few years but this problem only started a couple of weeks ago and has been getting worse.

When it freezes, I need to re-start the computer.

The jumping happens not just when I am typing, but even when using the touch pad.  It will move up and down and often close windows or click links.

I have checked and I have the most up to date device drivers.  I have also changed the sensitivity settings but to no avail.

Dell Inspiron 1440 :: Touchpad Not Working Properly When Charging And Battery Indicator Flashing Red

Feb 11, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1440 which I've been using since 2010. Recently I bought a new charger for my laptop as the old one got damaged and now when I'm charging the laptop the touch pad is not working properly. It is slow and sometimes I can't select items with the touch pad. So I changed the charger and when I checked in the shop the touch pad with new charger (the second one)  was working fine. But when I went home again the same problem with the touch pad when charging only. When I remove the charger it works fine. And I also tried with a friends charger (but another dell model) and it works fine.  And now my laptop battery indicator is blinking red three times. That also happens when charging only.

Dell :: XPS 15Z Keyboard - Cursor Jumps All Over The Place While Composing Emails And Letters

Jul 12, 2011

I have an issue with the keyboard on my new 15z. The cursor seems to have a mind of its own and jumps all over the place while I am composing emails and letters. This happens at random. What is causing this. I have tried disabling the mouse pad and using a USB mouse but the problem persists. I have tried being extremely careful not to touch the arrow keys located in the bottom right hand corner of the keyboard area but the problem continues

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Windows 8.1 - Cursor Jumping And Closing Programs

Jan 28, 2010

I have a brand new Thinkpad Yoga (20CD-CT01WW), running windows 8.1 64-bit, 8g RAM.  Intel Core i7-4600U @ 2.10Ghz / 2.70Ghz

When using any program in desktop mode (first noticed it on Chrome, then Quicken, but really applies to any use), the cursor will randomly jump across the screen, usually to the upper right, and then without clicking, will close the window I'm working on, often losing my work. Sometimes I'll get random right-click menus without clicking the mouse buttons. I am using the track-point primarily, so thinking it might be inadvertent contact with the touchpad, I disabled all touch-pad functionality, but the problem persists.

I ran Norton Internet security, AdAware, and Malwarebytes to look for viruses but didn't find any problems. Just ran Lenovo update, and downloaded the most recent Ultra-Nav Driver.  Now both touch-pad and track-point are using default settings, but the problem still persists.  

I'm wondering if this a hardware or driver problem, or a windows 8.1 problem?

Dell :: Inspiron 1440 And Studio 1440?

Jul 20, 2009

I just realized that both the new Inspiron 14 and Studio 14z are numbered as the "1440". Usually Dell avoids duplicating the model number- Inspiron 1525, Studio 1535, Inspiron 1545, Studio 1555, etc.

Dell Inspiron 15 7537 :: Touchpad Cursor Gets Stuck And Doesn't Respond To Movements

Oct 18, 2013

I recently purchased a new Inspiron 15 7000 (7537) with Windows 8.  I'm getting used to Windows 8, but really struggling with the integrated touchpad.  It's getting so frustrating I'm considering returning it.  The problems are hard to pin down, but in general:

-I often get the right click shortcut menu, when I'm just trying to click.  I've even changed both the right and left hand buttons to both be "click" (and neither be shortcut menu), but I still get the shortcut menu a lot.

-Sometimes the cursor gets stuck and doesn't respond to movements.  I've tried adjusting the touch sensitivity and disabled palm detection.  No change.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Windows 8 - Both Mouse And Touchpad Operate Cursor - Disable Button Inactive

Apr 15, 2013

I wish to disable the touch pad on my Inspiron 1545 with Windows 8.. I have a Logitech wireless mouse.  Currently both the mouse and the touch pad operate the curser.  I want to only use the mouse. In Windows 7 the default was mouse only as soon as the wireless interface was installed. This is not the case with Windows 8.

I've been told to go to the Device driver and select the touch pad under Mouse and other pointers.  The touch pad is not listed. I've tried disabling the PC Mouse compatible but the disable button is inactive.

Dell Latitude E4300 :: Disable Touchpad - Mouse Is Jumping All Over The Screen

Aug 18, 2009

Mouse is jumping all over the screen - I believe because it is easy to accidentally brush the touchpad while typing.

The Control Panel - Mouse on this Latitude no longer has an option to independently enable/disable the touchpad and the pointing stick - but surely there is a way to do this on this e4300.

Am running XP - 32bit.

Acer Aspire E15 :: Touchpad Freezing - Blinker Moves Elsewhere When Click To Type At Certain Place

Nov 27, 2014

Lately I have been having problems with the touchpad this week, started with freezing sometimes, which I typed in google to see another have this problem and to switch setting of touchpad to no delays, which worked as freezing hasn't happened at all anymore at the moment....and later in week, having some difficulty when typing when I click to type in a certain place but then the blinker moves elsewhere, problems with copying and pasting sometimes, as when I copy to highlight upwards, the page did not come up immediately when I slowly moved the mouse up as you do, but when it finally went up, it highlighted the entire document. Doesn't happen all the time....

HP :: 2000 Notebook - Touchpad / Cursor Not Working

May 8, 2013

I have a HP 2000 Notebook PC; can't seem to find the model numbers or anything.
 
My touchpad just randomly stopped working when I opened my laptop this morning. I'm using an external mouse right now but need to have access to the touchpad. I have already attempted the following:
 
Rebooting 5 times

Trying function keys

Toggling on/off: there is not light above the touch pad, and double tapping does not facilitate any change in the light or function of the touchpad

Reinstalling touchpad driver twice

Searching mouse properties: does not list touchpad as mouse device.
