You need to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad

In the TouchPad Properties window you can access additional TouchPad preferences.

»To access the TouchPad Properties window, use the TouchPad to select Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Mouse > Device Settings, and then select the Settings button.

(If you follow this path using an optional external mouse, the TouchPad Properties window may be unavailable.)

Dell pc pointer jumps while and after typing


Make sure your fingers/palms aren't grazing the touchpad as you're typing. What's probably happening is your hands are too close to the touchpad, making the computer think you're using the mouse, and thus jumping the cursor around.

Cursor jumping


I have had this same issue. I realized one day that the palm of my hand was touching the track pad intermittently. Some of the HP laptops have super sensitive track pads. Mine actually has a button that disables it for typing. let me know, if this helps.

Jumping Cursor


Are you using the touchpad or an external mouse?
Douse it jump around while typing or when you move the cursor?
If you are using the keyboard. try turning it over and tapping it LIGHTLY against your hand or something soft. There may be some dust or stuff between the keys.

Hi! I think youre probably having a jumping cursor where the cursor jumps from one place to another while typing an email or something. You may got to control panel - hardware - mouse then look for the check box that you can tick on that says "Tap off while typing" and this should fix the problem. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com!

Jumping cursor


This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.
