or family member who has a laptop with a touchpad also. Compare their behavior. If yours is really different and erratic, and phone help doesn't help, return the laptop.
I just purchased a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop/ Vista Premium operating system and since I first turned it on the Cursor when using the touchpad is either hard to get moving or goes where it wants to. I am constantly playing with it to get it to go where I want. I have tried adjusting the presure or sensitivity. Wnen the Mouse is connected it works perfectly. But I like using the touch pad for convienance and plus thats what I paid Dell for.
I had an on line chat with a Technition at Dell. He did a remote connection and worked on the Bios and several other items. When he finished I thought it was better but its still the same. Its 6 days old and I am so frustrated. I am a novice so to much detail will scare me. Oh and I disabled the Tapping to stop it from landing on items and opening then up when working on other items. I may have to try Dell again.
Does anyone have a fix for this problem? It appears that I am not alone!
Thanks so much,
