Windows 7: Solution for unsupported Dell Vostro 1700

Windows 7 - 32 bit
Solution for unsupported Dell Vostro 1700


I have installed Windows 7 32-bit on a Dell Vostro 1700 notebook, but I am having issues with a 'jumping cursor' (while typing, the cursor will suddenly move to another line in my text, usually the place where my mouse previously clicked).

I have read many discussions and I now know that it is to do with the mouse driver (both touchpad and USB) and that Dell does not do drivers for Windows 7 for the Vostro 1700.

I tried to just live with it for a while but I cannot work like this anymore, so I am wondering whether there is any solution, other than reverting back to Vista?

Is there another Dell laptop which has similar drivers that I could use? Or are there any other drivers out there that I could try?

Well, if it worked with Vista, have you tried installing the Vista driver within Windows 7? This may help to resolve the issue.
