    What have you already tried? Have you done the 5 R's? Doing a software update or restore my solve this. Are you using a screen protector? Does it do it if you have the ipod on a table and you are using just one finger. Is the screen absolutely clean?

I had this same problem. I discovered by accident that it seems to have been a conflict between drivers for my Microsoft keyboard and Logitech mouse. I'd used the supplied disks to install both. When I removed those drivers and let Windows find the drivers within its own files, the problem healed itself. Just a guess, but it might be worth a try for you.

There's a glitch in the firmware. The best thing you can do is Restore, let it revert to backup. If it still does it after that, try Restore and treat as new. If you're still having the problem, try holding Alt when you click Restore and choose an earlier iPhoneOS. If you're running 2.1, update to 2.2. If none of that works, the iTouch is defective... call Apple or take it to an Apple Retail Store.

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

About a week ago I started noticing that when I used the letter y it would make my cursor jump backwards, sometimes a few spaces but sometimes several lines. What could be causing this? It only happens if...


Does your keyboard have a pointing device in the centre? (small button that is an alternative to using the touchpad)

If you have that then it is likely that you are touching it while typing and moving the cursor inadvertently.

You can disable that device, but I would need to know what make and model of laptop you have to advise further.

Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!

Cursor problem


this is a common keyboard driver problem, go to my computer,right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager> and look down the list for keyboard, click the'+' sign, right click on the keyboard type line and select uninstall. Restart the notebook and it will automatically reinstall itself and the driver. If you still have the same problem, you will need to go to the manufacturer web site and download the latest keyboard driver if any, install it and repeat the above.
