Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, and then restart the pc.

Your touchpad will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

My cursor keeps jumping and moving the letters in my emails.


Step 1:
If you are a frequent user of a notebook or netbook computer, then you likely use a touchpad to navigate your computer's on-screen cursor. However, there are a number of issues that can cause your cursor to seem jumpy or unresponsive. To find what is causing these issues, you can troubleshoot both your hardware and your operating system and find a solution to the problem.

Turn your computer off and then clean your touchpad. Dampen a clean cloth with some isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and then pat the pad dry with a paper towel. Even a small stain or sticky spot can throw off your touchpad's sensitivity, so it is vital that the pad remain clean of all extraneous substances. Re-calibrate your touchpad. Go to the hardware section of the "Mouse" utility (in the Control Panel) and find the device settings. There should be an "Advanced Settings" or "Calibration" utility under this tab. Follow the prompts to calibrate your touchpad for maximum efficiency. Use manual troubleshooting wizard. If you suspect that your computer's software or drivers are at fault, run the manual troubleshooting wizard. Go to the "Mouse" utility (in the Control Panel) and then go to the "Hardware" tab. Select your touchpad and then click on the "Troubleshoot..." button. Follow the prompts to troubleshoot software issues that could make your touchpad jumpy. Reduce cursor speed. In the "Mouse" utility, go to "Pointer options" and reduce the speed. This will prevent the cursor from going too fast when you move your finger on the touchpad, which could be the source of the "jumpy" effect.

Tip

Dell Latitude Portable (2008 or newer) has jumpy cursor when typing


The Touchpad driver setup has options to keep the cursor from jumping while typing.
  1. Open the Touchpad Properties
  2. Touchpad Settings
  3. Enable the TouchCheck option, set the slider to minimum. (TouchCheck disabled the touchpad while typing. The Slider adjusts the delay. Minimum is .5 second delay, and each notch and additional .5 second delay)
Other options that may cause user problems are Draglock and Tap to Click under Touchpad Settings, and Scrolling and Zoom Settings of Touchpad Properties.

Try looking for the "tap to click" setting in the Mouse settings. Click Start>Settings>Control Panel and go into Mouse settings.

If there is a "tap to click" option - try turning it off. It will make it so that when you want to click - you'll actually have to click down on the mouse button instead of just tapping the touchpad - but that might help get the system to not have a jumpy cursor.

Carol this is a frequent problem with new netbooks,it seems when they leave the factory this is not taken into account.You should be able to manually configure the settings somewhere.Also certain types of wi-fi protocols are suseceptable to sever forms of interference(for instance in wi-fi Cybercafes) or even from consumer goods such as microwave ovens,try to configure the settings first.

Jumpy cursor , while typing the cursor jumps to another line and adds the newly typed letters somewhere else on the page


The reason this is happening is that as you are typing; you're resting some weight on the thin plastic above the touchpad...which then makes contact and registers a 'click'; thus moving your cursor around. Or you're brushing your thumb against it when hitting the space key.

Some laptops are more susceptible to this than others. Some more modern laptops come with a button to turn the touchpad off to solve this very problem.

The only thing you can do about this is to disable the touchpad through the touchpad driver (down by the clock, usually) and use a mouse instead. Depending on how you use your laptop, this will be more or less inconvenient- if your laptop never leaves the desk; disable the touchpad and use a mouse...no problem. If you go mobile a lot, you'll have to enable and disable the touchpad all the time.

The other thing you can do is adapt your typing style so you don't put any weight on anything but the key you're pressing. This is quite difficult and uncomfortable, and is not recommended for long sessions.
