    I have tried your suggestion, many thanks, but it did not work. I have tried disambling my mosepad and it shows as disabled but it still works! and interferes with the typing. I have even tried a subscription to Drivedetectives to install new drives. Nothing works. Thank you in any case, your suggestion was very quick.

You can try this:
- Open the Control Panel - Open System folder - Choose Hardware  - Choose Device manager - Find and open Mice andother pointing devices
First, I would delete it from the list and reboot, forcing Win to find the 'new device' and install the driver from .cab files that are probably on a separate partition. If it is still causing problems, go through the steps above but as the last step, choose Disable to try to put it to sleep.

What to do when cursor keeps jumping


Many laptops have a settings window for the touchpad/mouse (look in the Control Panel); after getting this laptop I had the same problem. I went into the options and checked the box that said something like "Disable Touchpad when Typing." Look for an option like that in your touchpad settings.

Dell Latitude Portable (2008 or newer) has jumpy cursor when typing


The Touchpad driver setup has options to keep the cursor from jumping while typing.
  1. Open the Touchpad Properties
  2. Touchpad Settings
  3. Enable the TouchCheck option, set the slider to minimum. (TouchCheck disabled the touchpad while typing. The Slider adjusts the delay. Minimum is .5 second delay, and each notch and additional .5 second delay)
Other options that may cause user problems are Draglock and Tap to Click under Touchpad Settings, and Scrolling and Zoom Settings of Touchpad Properties.

When typing the cursors jumps to the beginning of the sentance


Most often this is caused by your thumb touching the touchpad. If you use a mouse, disable the touchpad. I've had this problem and so have a number of my customers. One lady insisted that I was not right, so I disabled her touchpad and the problem went away!
To test this to see if your problem is caused by a sensitive touchpad, cover it with cardboard and go about your typing.

Keyboard trouble and heat


The Cursor jumping can be resolved by going to the touchpad properties and enabling touchcheck (Palmcheck is some drivers) this will disable the touchpad while typing.

Ad far as dealing with heat, canned compressed air blowing dust out of the air intake/exhaust will normally help cooling

Jumpy cursor , while typing the cursor jumps to another line and adds the newly typed letters somewhere else on the page


The reason this is happening is that as you are typing; you're resting some weight on the thin plastic above the touchpad...which then makes contact and registers a 'click'; thus moving your cursor around. Or you're brushing your thumb against it when hitting the space key.

Some laptops are more susceptible to this than others. Some more modern laptops come with a button to turn the touchpad off to solve this very problem.

The only thing you can do about this is to disable the touchpad through the touchpad driver (down by the clock, usually) and use a mouse instead. Depending on how you use your laptop, this will be more or less inconvenient- if your laptop never leaves the desk; disable the touchpad and use a mouse...no problem. If you go mobile a lot, you'll have to enable and disable the touchpad all the time.

The other thing you can do is adapt your typing style so you don't put any weight on anything but the key you're pressing. This is quite difficult and uncomfortable, and is not recommended for long sessions.

My cursor jumps back to the beginning when i'm trying to type. i'm constantly having to backspace and correct and reset my cursor. any suggestions?


Disable your touchpad if you consistently have this problem.

When you are typing something, and you suddenly touch the touchpad (tapping this touchpad moves the cursor) then your cursor will suddenly change position which then mess up your typing.

If you don'r have an external mouse connected, better be careful not to touch the touchpad. If you have an external mouse, better disable this touchpad.

When typing cursor keeps jumping


Generally there is a setting (CONTROL PANEL, MOUSE, Touchpad Tab) to either enable a feature like PALMCHECK or to disable the touchpad while typing. If neither option is shown, then try updating your touchpad driver

Typing problem with keyboard


the easy method would be to hook up a USB mouse and disable the touchpad to see if that works. Control Panel -> Mouse (or Printers and other Hardware), then click on the mouse and then click on Advanced or Hardware tab to look at the options. You might be able to have it disable the touchpad when a mouse is present.

Your touchpad is very sensitive. Be sure to keep your fingers away from it when typing. I have the same problem with my Toshiba laptop--I decided that unless I was in a travelling situation, I would use a small wireless mouse. I just disabled the touchpad.
