Dell Inspiron 4000 Mouse Drift THE FINAL SOLUTION

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I'm posting this mouse drift fix so it'll be in google's archives.

If your mouse is drifting all over the place on your dell inspiron
4000, touch the pointer stick. If the drift changes directions or
changes speed, it's the stick which is the problem (and it almost
always is).

It's not the driver, don't bother.  Remove the keyboard via dell's
instructions, and then take a pair of scissors and cut the 4 wire
ribbon cable connected to the back of the pointer stick.  You won't be
able to use the stick, but you WILL be able to use your computer (with
the touchpad or mouse).

Finally and drift free night.
