T60 IBM laptop keyboard pointer - touchpad. REMOVE the BAD Battery

I was looking here for a solid answer for Why my T60 IBM laptop was freezing up ( anytime I touched the pad or the pointer on the keyboard )

And I found that with the battery removed And the A'C charger plugged in, my problem was fixed. The battery was not any good ...

I wanted to share that - as I had done every conceivable thing as far as upgrades and had no luck until now. It worked.

When I type on my keyboard, the pointer skips around. I can be typing on one line and all of a sudden, the typing is in another place.


hello, This happens because you are landing some part your hand (palm) in the touch-pad when you typing. which activates the touch-pad and makes sudden movements in the pointer.
This problems for lot of laptop users, unless you can get use to prevent the hand from touching the touch-pad, the only option is getting a USB keyboard where you can plug in without any drivers and type without any trouble.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

laptop mouse problem


This is a common problem with laptops, unfortunately, there is no real solution of fixing the touch pad.
The best solution is to use an external usb mouse.
I recomend an optical mouse, they cost about 5 US dollars.

Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.
