Stupid mouse touch pad

I have a Dell Inspiron 700m, which I love. It has a Synaptics touch pad. Everyone once and a while it freaks out though and acts like someone is holding their finger on a portion of the touch pad so no matter how you move the mouse around, it automatically jumps back when you lift your finger off of it. The older version of the Synaptics software had a “reset device” button that fixed it. The newer version doesn’t though. So I just get to wait for it to go away. Argh.



  1. Beth My Inspiron did that also. I thought it was because I had tried to install and then uninstall a wireless mouse. But maybe it’s just a Dell thing.
    I’m selling that laptop now though, we got an iMac instead.
