No we don't work for Dell, but try to help out the helpless like your for free. I have seen most every laptop do what yours is doing, and it's always because of the touchpad. Those with attitudes like yours are the ones that think they know everything, and always have something rude to say. So, work it out for yourself.
Pot >>> Kettle :smileysurprised:
Since you're not happy with the replies you've received in the community forums, I suggest you contact Dell tech support directly, to see if they can offer you any better advice?
I hope they are able to provide you with a suggestion which remedies the problem, 'coz heaven forbid they also get on your bad side :smileyvery-happy:
From experience, I've found that: “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!

I just joined this forum with the exact same problem that you have. I use an external mouse, not the mousepad. And the jumping problem has gotten worse and worse. Have you received any useful information to solve this problem? Many thank (and I agree the answers are insulting..)

I had the same problem for a Dell Mini 10 and downloaded the Elantech Touchpad driver from the Dell site and all is now fine.
I have a inspiron 1520 laptop, with an external marble mouse.
If I am typing into Word or a forum such as this, the cursor sometimes jumps around. In Word, I can hit the undo button, bringing the word that I was typing that is butchered, cursor back to the end of it. I am only out a couple of letters. Sometimes I notice a delay in the word to be typed, and the letters have to catch up.
This is all very frustrating; noticing that this phenomena just sort of started up about a year ago. I haven't heard much on the problem, a year ago because there wasn't any dialog that had the vocabulary to explain this problem.
The other laptop that we have, an Inspiron 5150, doesn't have this issue. If that was the only computer I ever had, I wouldn't know what these people are talking about. This is a real issue, and at this point, doesn't seem to be a fix?
any chance you can walk me how to do this, i can barely use my laptop it skips around so much, it is prettyworthless until i can get this fixed. thanks for step by step dir (as you can see it happened multiple times within this message alone)
I have a Dell N4110 with a Synaptics touchpad. I went to control panel>device manager> mice and other pointing devices >
clicked on Dell touchpad and uninstalled. Went to Dell site and downloaded new driver.
It now works normally. Can't believe I've lived with this problem for 4 months.
This worked for me...THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
