Hi all. I have a dell studio 17 and the touchpad is very erratic. I have to use a plug mouse to even make the computer usable. The keyboard acts up also but it is intermittant. Ususally when I type in the password to sign into windows. I have already replaced the touchpad but its the same as before. I have ran several virus scans and found a few problems, but it still does it after fixing those. Any suggestions on how to figure out what the problem is?!?!? Thanks.

clean out the keyboard with a can of compressed air, and reinstall the drivers, but if that doesnt work Id guess faulty hardware, and not a lot you can do about that.

can you try removing the main battery for say 15 seconds, and replace.
