I recently acquired this problem after having my computer serviced. I have been using it for over a year with no difficulty. I read somewhere that this is a microsoft problem, one of their service packages. The question is, which one?

If you type like me, it's probably your wrist or the heel of your hand contacting the touchpad -- below the keyboard. An experiment to test this might be for you to cut a small piece of foam (like an old mousepad) and place it over the touchpad. Type away! If the cursor doesn't jump around, remove the foam and type a bit more. If the cursor jumps around, it's likely caused by contact with the touchpad.

I write from experience as I had a Toshiba Satellite A127 -- and found that my right hand would contact the touchpad and sometimes move the cursor around.

I hope this helps!

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.

Cursor jumps erratically


Most likely, your wrist is gently touching the touchpad, and your computer is interpreting it as a 'tap,' and it so happens your cursor was located several lines up.
Or if you use a separate mouse, is it on a wood or uneven surface? This will cause it to jump up those few lines and again, your wrist (or if you have big hands like I do, the bottom of your thumbs) will tap it.
