DELL Latitude E4300 Touchpad

Monday, November 30th, 2009

For work I use a DELL E4300, which is a really nice and handy laptop. But one thing that gets on my nerves is that sometimes when I type a long text the text cursor jumps to the position of where the mouse pointer is. After several minutes I come to realize, that a problem with the integrated touchpad has occurred. (I kid you not I was not even able to complete this sentence without this happening.)


So I’ve started investigating the problem in detail…
…I’ve tried to deactivate the touchpad via driver but the driver is also needed for the pointing stick :(
…I’ve tried to deactivate the touchpad via BIOS but there you can only deactivate both – the touchpad and the pointing stick :(

So there is only one way to work around this: Use an external mouse.

PS: Lenovo disables the touchpad if you start to type :)
PPS: My girlfriend also has problems with my laptop because the letters z and y are switched – Hahaha :)
