When I put any kind of pressure on my laptop, old latitude laptop, the mouse cursor flies across the screen. I'm running xp and wondering if there's something I can disable or anything.

Please clarify - do you have a seperate mouse plugged in, or are you relying on the trackpad? If you need the trackpad, disabling it isn't an option. – Blackbeagle Oct 30 '09 at 3:03

Look in your bios and disable the trackpad.

Or find some drivers that have an option to disable the trackpad when the mouse is plugged in.

The ones I used to use were Logitech's, but they worked on any mouse I plugged inside.

The Latitude drivers allow you to turn off the track pad and/or the pointer stick. This can be only when an external mouse is installed or any time. Many options and availabkle from the Dell site.
