Samsung labtop cursor jumps around when typing causing all kinds of problems including highlighting and erasing entire lines or sentences!


Press Fn & F10. This disables the touchpad. You will have to use arrows or a mouse to move the cursor. This helps when you are doing a lot of typing. Press the same keys to enable the touchpad when you are finished typing.

My cursor jumps back when I type. I am not hitting the touch pad...help


You're probably having a jumping cursor where the cursor jumps from one place to another while typing an email or something. To fix this Go to control panel - hardware - mouse then look for the check box that you can tick on that says "Tap off while typing" and this should fix the problem.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a message.

Cheers~

When i am typing something my curser jumps and types over something I've already typed. example: when i am typing hing my curser jumps and typesomet


Have you found the answer yet? I don't know that particular laptop but if you use the touchpad, it happened to me because even the lightest brush against the surface with a stray finger would make the cursor jump all over and do the same quite annoying thing as you described.

While typing on my laptop, my cursor jumps to other places on the page, then types where the cursor has moved to . I don't use a mouse.


Hi,
I guess the 'other places of the pages' is mostly the beginning of the line? It usually happens when the key stroke is not proper while using combination keys. Or also it happens when if you dont release a key when you press the next in between your speedy typings.

your palm might be hitting the touchpad causing your mouse cursor to move and jump around... try to type with only your fingers hitting the keys and the back of your hand raised and not hitting any part of your laptop... hope this helps....

I am having a problem when I type and the cursor moving


This happens when your hands get to close to the palmrest and your wrists are actually causing the cursor to jump to another spot. Go to the control panel > mouse> settings > highlight the touchpad listed and select the settings button. Look through the entries and there is a setting for palmrest sensitivity. Turn down the sensitivity so your hands and wrists don't trigger a cursor movement. The hardware and drivers are fine, this is a setting adjustment.
