Default Computer problem


I am looking for some help with loading my Garmin 89 with the
final database release.

My problem is that my Dell Inspiron 2650 laptop seems to think
the GPS (which I have to connect via a USB com-port bridge) is a mouse
or other pointing device. The arrow cursor jumps about on the screen
uncontrollably.

How can I tame it? Any ideas welcome.

Try starting up the laptop WITHOUT the GPS connected. After its booted, and
you have normal mouse control, THEN connect the GPS.
