Strange Laptop TouchPad Behavior

Today I experience this strange problem on my mom’s laptop. (It’s a Dell BTW.) Still don’t know how to fix this but oddly enough the odd behavior does not happen now 😉

Edit 1. Unstable power supplier is the cause.


(AC power adapter) plugged in, (battery) not charging

06. Once logged in to the machine, perform a normal shut down.

07. Unplug AC power.

08. Replace battery.

09. Replace AC power.

10. Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot. The battery should once again be charging as normal.
