    my gf has an inspiron 1100 (i know a little old), and the touchpad is producing rather erratic motions with the cursor (it will get stuck on the screen too). anyone else have this problem? i have a 700m and i've encountered the same problem a couple times as well. we've messed with the all the settings such as the sensitivity and speed etc. anyone know of any driver updates or anything of the sort which will help? :x: thanks

    i dont know of any updates... but its not hard to just dl the correct drivers and install it... just to be sure.

    when i reformatted my 9100 it functioned just fine, but i couldnt mess with the advanced options (for the stick/knob thinger) until i installed teh drivers.

    Sure it's the touchpad? Two of our old Dell C600's had the eraser mouse randomly malfunction and drag the cursor to the corner of the screen. We unplugged it and just use the touchpad and it works fine.
