I plug in a USB device to my gateway mx6430 laptop... the mouse touchpad makes the curser jump all over.... start applications it passes over on the desktop..... could it be a bios problem? I reinstalled the mouse drivers and the USB drivers..... what else can I do?

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

Have you tried turning off the touchpad? Sometimes there will be a button that will turn it on/off above the touchpad. You could also go into device manager and disable it from there.

Oh I'm sorry, I thought you meant you were plugging in a USB mouse.

Is this happening with all your usb devices, or just a certain one. What is/are the usb device(s) you're using? Some USB devices, if they don't have an external power source, can drain too much power from the usb ports on a computer, especially on a laptop.
