Question about Computers & Internet
My laptop is just out of warranty and the best I got from Sony support, "Quote" this is not a common issue".
When I refer them to the problems on the internet they say "those are a very small" and don't really mean much in terms of the number of computers sold world wide. Not very good for customer relations.
My curser jumps to different parts of my document if I accidently brush the touchpad when typing; this causes tremendous frustration and hours of additional work going back to correct the text inserted in the wrong Place.
I trust this will generate a solution to the problem, I also cannot do without my laptop and cannot send it away for a few weeks.
There is a computer company close to me with good technicans.
PS My laptop is VGN-ZX483N running XPpro and is just over one year old purchased September 07
Go to the control panel and see if under the MOUSE icon if there is a way to turn off the touch pad so you can type and not be bothered with accidently touching the touchpad. You might also check the BIOS to see if you can turn the touchpad off. I have also had the same problem because I touch type and I share your frustration. The only solution I've found is to turn off the touchpad while typing and using an external mouse. This isn't an error of the PC because you want the touchpad to work when you touch it and it has no way of knowing if it is a "good" touch or a "bad" touch.
