Speed strip on touch mouse is too sensitive

I have a Gateway computer. The speed strip on the side of the touch mouse pad is too sensitive. Even if you accidentally rest any part of your hand, clothing etc. the cursor moves really fast. This is very annoying when you are typing. Can it be slowed down?

The touchpad is so sensitive I can't control it


You've got it, your touching the touch pad, annoying isn't it.

You can try a couple of things,

1) Go to Start - Control panel - Mouse/Touch panel - and see if you can reduce the sensitivity or,

2) Disable your touch pad (Same route) and use an ordinary mouse instead. That's what the wife does.

I want to adjust the sensitivity of my touch pad, but I cannot find any software that allows me to do so. The only pointer software and driver hardware apparent in control panel is for a mouse.


those mouse options, speed, buttons, tapping to click - should still apply to the touch pad - see if Have a look at a TAB called Pointer Options - that will enable you to slow and speed up the touch pad response

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

Shortage?


There is a ribbon cable between the laptop & the screen. It sounds like you have a short in that cable. If you're not good with tedius electronic repairs, it would be best to have a shop repair it.

Cursor jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:
  1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
  2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
    1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
    3. Click Mouse.
    4. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab. (Figure 1)

      Figure 1: Pointer Speed
    5. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
  3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.
