If the touchpad is working fine with the battery and if it is not working with the ac adaptor then in this case u can try with the different ac adaptor and still if it does the same thing then uninstall and resintall the toouchpad driver and restart the computer and still if it does so with the ac adaptor then u need to open the laptop chasis and then u need to fix up the power supply connector in the motherboard where the power supply from the ac adaptor is not getting the adequate response from motherboard.

The cursur jumps all over the place when I type in lenovo e530


Make sure you disable or turn off the touchpad when you are typing. You are accidentally hitting the touchpad when typin that causes your cursor to be erratic. I suggest to plug in a mouse and disable the touchpad.

My Acer 5732Z running under windows 7 has a keyboard & mouse prob


First thing to try to uinstall and reinstall the software for your touchpad. Go to Acer and get the latest drivers and or software. Sometimes, just removing the driver and letting windows find it again in device manager is enough to fix it. hopes this helps.

Normally though. keyboard and touchpad are seperate entities. which made me think of the motherboard as that is the only constant between the 2 but, if your touchpad is buggy maybe it is causing issues elsewhere.

I would try using what they call a cool mat. It sits under your computer and plugs into your computer per USB. It helps keep the computer cool. They cost like 25 dollars.

Cursor stops working when power cord is plugged in...


It sounds as if the power coming through your ac adapter may be causing interference with the touchpad, meaning perhaps an electrical signal is crossing into your mouse or disrupting its signals.

You could try to download the latest drivers for your touchpad and see if that fixes the issue.

You should also (if you haven't already) try a different mouse to see if the issue is related to the mouse sub system, or the touchpad itself.

If possible, try a different AC Adapter to see if that may be the issue.
