Dell :: Quick Typing On Inspiron 1720 Bug

Feb 7, 2009

My problem is that when I type quickly, sometimes cursor jumps to different position in text so it spoils what I wrote already before.

It's really annoying and I can't find out why is this happening.

I thought that maybe it's related somehow to this laptop.

HP/Compaq :: Dv4t Quick Launch And Quick Touch

Feb 24, 2009

Are both needed for the volume and mute keys to work as well as play/paul skip etc? I am running into an issue on bootup where something sort of drags and I think its the software that goes with these buttons. If I try to use the system to early I can crash explorer. I was able to do this on two brand new laptops. Or would I be better installing the lastest Sound driver, quick touch?

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 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 Inspiron 15R 5520 :: Few Specific Characters Appear Only After Typing Key Twice

Jan 6, 2013

I'm facing a very strange issue in my Inspiron 15R 5520 which I bought in August 2012. There are few characters, which appear only after typing the corresponding key on the keypad twice.

e.g. If I want to type tilde(~) character, then I have to press the key on the lest side of Numeric key 1. But, if I press it once, nothing appears on the screen. And If I press this key twice, then I get two tilde (~) characters. Same behaviour happens for four other characters. Given below is the list of characters, which do not show up by pressing key once, rather twice.


Surprisingly, when I was typing keys Shift+6 in the compose area of this forum, then the character caret (^) appeared after pressing key once. Whereas, if I try it in Notepad or Word Pad or in the address bar of Mozila FireFox, I'll have to press the key twice so that character appears twice and then delete the extra character...

I bought my Inspiron 5520 in the States in July, 2012.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Instead Of Typing Computer Perform Random Tasks

Jan 9, 2010

I own an inspiron 1545 which works properly for the most part, except for a small, but annoying problem. Sometimes, when I type, instead of characters or numbers appearing on the screen, the computer would perform random tasks like try to open a file when I press O (and I am not holding down the Ctrl key), save my work when I press S (again, no Ctrl key), and change my typing language. It used to run on Vista, and was recently upgraded to 7, but the problem persists.

For example, typing the word 'frustration' would sometimes lead to this:

frustrati (Open dialogue box appears)

It's especially annoying when it changes the typing language mid-sentence.

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: Fast Typing In Webmail Results In Missing Letters

Jul 31, 2009

I've browsed the discussions and have seen problems similar to, but not exactly the same as, my problem, hence the new thread.

Problem: I have a brand new Inspiron 1545 from Dell online. When I type text in Internet Explorer (e.g. webmail applications or this forum), even at a relatively slow speed, many of the keys don't seem to register --

that is, letters or spaces whose keys I press do not show up on the screen. As a result, I must type verrry slowly to make sure that every letter/space shows up, or else go back to re-type it. Strangely, I do not have this problem when typing text in, say, Notepad .....

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 GPU

Apr 21, 2009

I have done a search on this so forgive me if its been addressed already. I found no answers.

I have seen taht a number of Inspiron 1720s have the 8600m GT card in them with 512 mb of memory, while others such as mine have the same card, but with 256mb memory on them.

I'm getting ready to start doing some photoshop work as well as some CAD work. I'm going to start my engineering degree as soon as I finish my current degree. Would this increase in memory help out in what I will be doing?

Will it also help in gaming? I pretty much use this laptop for everything and am trying to learn what I can about it so I fully understand it's capabilities and such.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720

Mar 30, 2009

I am stuck looking at a black screen. Also, when closing the lid I am unable to open the lid and restore my previous session.

Although I am not sure if this is directly related but it seems to only deter me from restoring the session if the computer has been plugged in, otherwise the laptop comes back exactly as it was.

I have tried reinstalling the video driver twice, both times doing a complete clear and removing all registries tied to them
