I have been trying to turn a dell latitude e6410 into an inexpensive laptop for my sister in law and have been having numerous issues. One of which that has been the most mysterious is this issue where the touchpad has been super jumpy. Quite by accident last night i discovered that it works just fine when on battery power.... After doing some research, I discovered this https://askubuntu.com/questions/309971/touchpad-doesnt-respond-when-power-is-plugged. I have tested this with another charger that is a dell brand 65 w where the regular charger i have for it is an after market 90 w charger... As far as i know, that is what this laptop needs... can anyone help me to understand how to reliably fix this problem?
