I was trying to assit my lacousin with her laptop "issues" and could not figure out how to stop the cursor from skipping around. when you start typing on her laptop the cursor has been known to:

move randomly while you're typing
highlights text and deletes it
jump all over the page

After doing many google searches, I was unsuccessful in finding a solution so I thought I'd post here. I have tried to make her touch pad less sensitive but nothing seems to work.

Thanks for touching basis with me for clarification...hopes this helps!

How do I fix cursor. When I use my cursor some times it want respond to the location I need it to go.How can I fix it?


Instructions
    • 1 Close all application windows and restart the laptop. This will shut down any background processes that might be affecting your cursor. Rebooting often remedies cursor skipping problems.
    • 2 Run antivirus software to confirm that your misbehaving cursor is not caused by malware. If the cursor has changed to an unfamiliar shape without you initiating the change, your system could be infected by a virus or you might have installed unstable software. Run an antivirus scan and remove suspicious files and programs from your laptop.
    • 3 Adjust your touchpad's settings. In Windows, open "Control Panel," click on "Mouse" and then click "Tapping." On a Mac, access "Trackpad" and "System Preferences." Lower the tracking speed or sensitivity so that if you are accidentally touching the touchpad while typing, you are less likely to cause the cursor to skip. Save your new settings.

My laptop has a black screen with a blinking cursor


Blinking Cursor b> Laptops, especially models with a touchpad, occasionally experience issues with a skipping cursor. The cursor on the screen may skip or jump when you are using it or even when you are just typing and not actually using the cursor. This can be especially annoying when playing games or typing. Adjusting the sensitivity of your touchpad may remedy the problem.

Cant move cursor properly..


Could be hardware related BUT from experience it is software related requiring a completed reinstall of your software if your using vista - so backup and save any data you want - reboot and at the HP splash screen hit F11 to enter system recovery - select advanced options - select full recovery - no back up and let it do a completed restore.

HP Pavilion zd8000 keyboard skips characters


The most common reason that your cursor skips around is that you are touching the touch pad when typing. Some are more sensitive than others. On my Toshiba I had that problem, but it has a Fn key that allows me to turn off the touchpad. Problem went away when I went to a mouse instead.
Had a client with a Dell with the same problem. I had to actually physically disconnect the touchpad and her problem went away.
Now as for the first problem, (the HP), I'd say you have a stuck key on the keyboard. It would make that noise.
