Aspire 4315 keyboard problem

While typing the cursor will randomly go somewhere else and it's becoming more often now, it started rarely when it was newly purchased, but after a couple of months, it became more often. my Acer is less than 6 months.

This is usually caused by the user brushing against the mouse pad or tracker point, some laptops use ase smart software to detect when you are typing whilst others use a disable switch which disables the trackpad/mousepad

When I type use the keyboard of my DELL LATITUDE E6410 laptop,the cursor jumps to a random position (some time to a different line) at random time. However there is no problem if I input with a USB...


I have this kind of problem before with my laptop dell vostro1400, all the technician did was clean the underneath of the keyboard and the touch pad connector to the keyboard. He advise me that if the problem occurs again I have to buy a new dell keyboard..

Cursor keeps moving to unexpected locations while typing


My laptop does this and so does my Linux computer.
An optical mouse needs to work on a featureless surface. My oak grain desk is not good.
A mouse pad with a picture is also bad.
Use a clear textured surface - like a one colour mouse pad...
Or
Try a new mouse - a cheap one will do for testing. The tail on your mouse may be breaking. (Yes, they do that...)

It seems to happen with optical mice on random pattern surfaces.

I'll be typing anything and my cursor will randomly reset to an earlier place causing me to constantly correct my work. I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 15.


Mine does this quite often when I am typing. I have discovered that my hands are touching the mousepad while I am typing and will randomly put the mouse in the middle or just about anywhere in the document I am typing. The next time this happens take note of where your hands are and if they may be slightly touching the mousepad. It took me quite some time before I figured out what was happening.

While typing suddenly skips back at random to the previous line...? then types over and in between stuff i already typed and i have to backspace and retype. What may be causing this?


this sometimes happen in a laptop where the touchpad is unawarely hit causing the cursor to transfer location. that is why the typing is pointed to other location in the document. please make sure that your workspace is not having any of this same scenario

Acer Keyboard Cursor moves without my knowledge


The touch freeze fix from microsft seemed to work for my cursor jumping issues. Thanks for the link for this fix. Makes typing on this laptop easy and enjoyable again.

Cursor skips lines while typing


My experience: cursor suddenly moving backward when i was typing, or moving somewhere else on the page. I would be typing and text suddenly would get highlighted. I followed someone's advice to disable the touch pad. Since I do have a mouse & key pad that was all i had to do.
HOW TO DISABLE THE TOUCHPAD FOR ACER 3680 AND OTHERS??? PRESS Fn +F7
Yep, it was that simple. At first I made sure i typed without my fingers or palms touching or near the touchpad. I noticed it seemed to stop or happen less. Soon as I disabled the touch pad all is back to normal. Yet I spent hrs trying to find out how and there were all these posts by people suggesting downloads and other more complicated things etc..
