 Girlwithacomputer -

I just got a brand new laptop a few days ago and if I try to type or hold a key my mouse will not move. I did not have this problem with the laptop I used before does anyone know what to do.

System Configuration: Windows 7 Internet Explorer 8.0

1) Go to Control Panel
2) click on Hardware and Sound tab
3) Find Synaptics TouchPad (at the very bottom for me) and click on it
4) Find where it says PalmCheck-Enhanced and click on it
5) Move the mouse right and click on the Settings button beside where it says PalmCheck-Enhanced
6) At the top, drag the arrow on the bar all the way left to turn it off.

Hope it helps!
Thank you

computer>os(c:)>program file>touchpad

Go to touchpad setting and for me it was unclick touchcheck. You can also open it up by rightclicking and going to personilze and mouse settings.
Good luck

For Inspiron users as I am, go to Start > Control Panel > Mouse > then Touchpad Settings > Touchpad Settings > Unclick TouchCheck which is defaulted as enable.
