Please help with erratic cuursor on laptop!

  Tony 07:27 31 Oct 04

The cursor on my Dell inspiron laptop has started behaving erratically. Sometimes it moves around and mostly it just flies off the screen - all of it's own accord.

The laptop has a touch pad and a button/joystick cursor controllers. I have tried it with and without a usb optical mouse.

What is wrong and how can i fix it.

I would be very grateful for any ideas please.

Go to Control Panel Mouse Double click on the icon and change your mouse for a different one, and check the settings whilst you are there. See If that makes a difference.
