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 ďjumpĒ 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 Iím going to have to call Dell,

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 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 :: 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 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.

HP G62 OS/Software :: Jumping Cursor When Typing With External Mouse

May 11, 2014

I have a g62 laptop with an external mouse and the cursor jumps all around when I am typing .  I installed touchfreeze and unchecked "Hide Pointer While Typing" and neither worked.  I also reviewed a suggestion to turn off "Touchpad" or something like that, and I can't even find this in my system.

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 :: Jumping From 32 To 64 Bit, What To Look Out For

Dec 11, 2008

I am most likely going to throw on my 64bit version I got this week, what "gotchas" have you guys run into when moving to 64 bit? Did most of your programs work ok? It looks like 64 bit drivers are available for all the hardware on my M1530 (video,audio,wifi, touchpad, fingerprint reader, etc)

I am mainly running Office 2007, firefox, Call of Duty 5, Steam (cod4), and the software for my Merc Zboard.

just wanted to learn from the experiances of all you people who have already made the switch.

did you guys notice much of a performance boost with that extra .5 gigs of RAM available to windows? I doubt I ever used the full 3.5 gigs that my 32 bit OS uses but then again I'm not sure.

Dell :: XPS 1730 Cpu Jumping To 100% In Vista

Feb 25, 2009

I have an XPS 1730 and recently the CPU will jump to 100% usage while just watching dvd's and not doing anything really intensive. The laptop will become very slow, usually having to restart to resolve the problem

I've tried doing a fresh install of vista 32 ultimate with all the latest drivers installed and lastest A10 bios yet i'm still having problems. Also bios defaults have been loaded.

I've ran the dell diagnostics cd, done the full system test and many of the other tests you can do and not one has failed.

All Tempatures seems to be ok aswell.

Anyone have any similar problems or have any ideas what the problem could be?

The laptop is no longer in warranty so i can't really contact dell about this.

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.

Dell :: Lagging Cursor

Aug 22, 2009

Out of no where, my cursor has started to lag. For example, if I move it quickly around in a circle, it will move, pause for a second, then sort of appear where it would be had it not lagged.

It does so on a very specific interval, like when spinning in a circle it will stop momentarily every 2 seconds. I've also noticed while playing a 3D game, the graphics will lag slightly every 2 seconds.

I've done in-depth virus/spyware checks, defrag etc. It really just randomly started. It does it with my wireless mouse and the touchpad.

Dell :: E6400 Mouse Cursor Freezing...??

Apr 5, 2009

I have had my refurbed e6400 for two now and keep experiencing a frozen mouse. I have seen this happen in XPSP3 as shipped and Vista Ultimate 64Bit.

When it freezes, the pointing stick nor trackpad response, but the keyboard continues to work. Only rebooting seems to fix this problem.

Anybody seen this before??

I have the latest drivers from Dell...should i be using Alps drivers from the mfg?

Dell Inspiron 15R SE :: Cursor Jumps Around When Typing?

Apr 7, 2013

I have an Inspiron 15R SE 7520 and while typing, the cursor frequently jumps around and will begin typing in a previously typed line.  This is extremely frustrating.  I am running Windows 8 and have looked to find where I can adjust the sensitivity of my touchpad but can't find it anywhere.  I've seen other posts for other computers that suggest uninstalling the touchpad driver and reinstalling it. What I should do for my specific laptop to stop this from happening? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall the touchpad driver.  If so, how do I do that for the Dell Inspiron 15R SE 7520 running Windows 8?   I'm also keeping my hands off the touchpad while typing but the cursor still moves.

Dell XPS M1530 :: Cursor Jumps Around When Typing?

Jun 18, 2009

This has been happening when typing emails in Outlook. It will be interesting to see if it happens while typing this. So far it's been OK. I have a Dell XPS M1530. There it did it just then, the 1530 jumped into the subject field. It always jumps into somewhere I have already typed. So it doesn't just happen in Outlook. It is very annoying. I am using a Bluetooth mouse, but also there is a touchpad just under my hands. Could it be that I bump it by mistake?

I don't know it that's the problem as the touchpad cursor is different to the typing cursor. I'm watching the touchpad cursor and it's not moving. The typing cursor is behaving itself now. I have just moved the touchpad cursor up the screen a bit and the typing cursor is still behaving itself.

While I am typing my hands are well clear of the touchpad. It just jumped again, and it did not jump to where the touchpad cursor was, so it's not related to that.

Dell Inspiron 4100 :: Position Of Cursor Changes While Typing?

Sep 21, 2003

I have in inspiron 4100 for about 14 months. I have noticed that while typing, the cursor my move back  to a different position in the line, move to a previous line, or jump to another text box altogether.  It drives me crazy that when I type, I never know if there is some combination of keys or if I accidently touch something to make the cursor change position.

Is there by default some combination of keys that cause cursor movement. It has happened 4 times while typing this message.

Can this be turned off?

Dell XPS Studio 16 :: Cursor Freezes After Sleep Mode

Mar 6, 2013

Whenever my laptop hibernates, at least half of the time, the curser will be frozen or locked up when the laptop comes out of sleep.

I have to push the button or close the lid on the laptop, sometimes 5 to 10 times before it unfreezes.

In the desktop section, stated to turn off all of the power saving options.

when I turn off all of the power options, that leaves the computer & hard drive on constantly.
