Pointer Mouse keeps moving by itself

  • Can anyone help?

    I have tried to search for a driver update (Dell and Windows), but cannot find any updates.

    Any quick response would be appreciated as its driving me crazy.......................

    Thanks for your quick reply!

    I have updated the Flash / Upgrade the BIOS and installed the latest touchpad drivers.

    The cursor is still thinking for itself and moving slowly around the screen. I have disabled the touchpad and with the pointing stick enabled there's no difference yet.

    Do you have any further suggestions?



  • If you've updated the bios and loaded the latest drivers, chances are its a hardware fault. Have you tried disabling the touchstick and enabling the touchpad? I suggest it may need the keyboard/palmrest replaced.
  • Thanks! done that and seems to have stop moving by itself.

    I never use the touchstick anyway, so I'll not miss it



  • I have a dell seems many complaining curser moves on Dell. I have had this issue since buying a Dell. Its been sent back over 6 times in a year. Warrenty is up and its still moving all over.
