Well..that can happen when the palm of your hand touches the touchpad, as you are typing..happens to me all the time. try it with your hands a bit more over the top fo the laptop..

Dell pc pointer jumps while and after typing


Make sure your fingers/palms aren't grazing the touchpad as you're typing. What's probably happening is your hands are too close to the touchpad, making the computer think you're using the mouse, and thus jumping the cursor around.

Cursor is jumping while I'm typing, had this problem a while ago and can't remember how to fix it


There's a setting for the touchpad component that prevents inadvertent slips and slides of your palms over the touchpad from causing the cursor to jump around. I forget the exact name, but once you see it you'll know it. Go to Control Panel->Mouse->Hardware and you may see the touchpad configuration screens.
Good luck!

My cursor jumps while I'm typing


Go into the control panel and then the keyboard icon. You can control the speed in there such as the repeat rate, repeat delay, and cursor blink rate.

Also go into the mouse icon in the control panel and you can control the speed and such in there to since thats worth a shot.

My Dell Inspiron 6000 notebook computer curser "jumps around"


I frequently have the same thing when using a Dell laptop. The problem MAY be with the touch pad. Without noticing it, my thumb touches the pad and away goes the cursor!

So try this: Open the control panel and go to mouse. Look at the top for Touchpad. There is a setting in there for sensitivity. Reduce the setting so that you need to apply more pressure on the touch pad to move the cursor. Test it a few times to make sure it is still functional before closing the control panel. Then try typing something in a word processor and see if it is any better.

Good luck, and please let me know if this helps.
