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

I have had exactly the same problem with most laptops I have used in the last 5 years, Compaq, Dell and HP.

what is happening is simple. as you are typing you are inadvertantly skimming the touchpad or the cursor buttons with the base of your thumb - well thats what I was doing - and moving the cursor.

I got an external keyboard & mouse - worked for me!

if there is a setting in the BIOS that enables you to turn OFF the touchpad and / or keyboard cursor buttons when an external KB / MOUSE is connected then enable it otherwise your problem will still continue.

Unfortunately, if youre using the laptop away from base, or there isnt such an option in the bios you basically just have to be more careful!

Keyboard starts typing in random places


Try to keep your hands well above the touchpad when typing. Most probably it's the gentle touch of the base of your thumb(s) on the touchpad when repositioning the hands while typing that causes the cursor to be moved somewhere else.

My letters and words will randomly go in different places


Have you checked the moue and keyboard settings see if there is something in the settings...one computer I would recommend to check the keyboard wiring but with two that would be quite a coincidence. If the mouse is chasing the cursor then its got to be a software issue..also run spyware software on both. Spyware captures keystrokes so could be affecting the keyboard pointer settings.

Jumping cursor


This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.

Acer Aspire keyboard


I puzzled over this for months, and then discovered it was because my thumb, normally attached to a mouse, was touching the board. Easy smeazy. Either wait until your habits can change, and not touch the touchpat with your thumb, or get a plug-in mouse.
