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.

The mouse goes in the opposite direction from i where i'm trying to navigate it.


Check whether you have switched the Primary and Secondary buttons of the Mouse. Please click on Start>Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Mouse. Then Uncheck the Primary and Secondary buttons of the Mouse to resolve the issue.

Jumping cursor. while i type, it skips around, usually to the left, and at the top of the page area.


Hi,

Are you using an external mouse, Please try to change your mouse, I have experience the same thing before, it seems my mouse does it. If your not using external mouse but rather your laptops mouse pad, Please try to do further testing by touching the pad in different portion and check if the pointer behaves abnormally.

When typing an email the keys skip back to the


When I have seen this happen, the touch pad was set overly sensitive. When you are typing, your palm may be moving the cursor. If this happens at other times, then this can be corrected in the control panel. Go there and click on touch pad. It will have settings to set the sensitivity for the mouse pad, speed, double click/single, etc. You can change the settings to be more suited to your hands.

FYI: Older laptops were more susceptible to touchpad errors and I have even seen the area on either side of the touchpad to cause the mouse cursor to move and jump.

Good Luck

Leapfrog mouse doesn't respond on screen


We had this happen within the first 30 minutes that we owned the Click Start! It still happens periodically when the kids are using it. For us the LED lights are flashing non-stop on the keyboard, and the mouse does not move the cursor on the screen and you cannot "click" on anything either.

Solution: On the underside of the keyboard is a very tiny hole. Push a pin or a paper clip into it, you'll feel some give in there like you are pushing a button. I push it until the lights stop flashing on the keyboard. It's the reset button. So far this has worked for us everytime.

Good luck.
