Depending on the laptop there is a switch that turns the touchpad on and off. My hp is on the touchpad rim, yours may also be a switch on the side or a combination of ksys, like F9 and the alt or control key, if this dosen't work, jus give me the make and model of the laptop and i'll find it for you, please don't forget to rate us as that determines our compensation, good luck and happy holiday Gym

SOURCE: Touchpad cursor is freezing up

Sounds like your low on memory, very low in other words it's dipping onto the hard drive to help with the mouse. upgrade the memory or use a less intensive antivirus, like nod32 or a free one like Microsoft security essentials.

Sony Vaio laptop (PCG-61317L) once I start browsing the internet, the screen freezes and the mouse cursor disappears from screen. When I don't browse the internet, it sometimes does the same thing

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 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.

I am loking for touchpad drivers of Lenovo laptop Model- 3000 G430

Hi appoddar1988,

I see you need drivers for your Lenovo G430.

what type of drivers do you need? you mentioned that you need touchpad Drivers, what issue are you experiencing with you Touchpad?

You can get the drivers from this link .

But if you are experiencing Jumping cursor issue then you do not need to reinstall your touchpad drivers you try installing touch freeze on your system this actually helps with the jumping cursor issues in th Lenovo G series Laptop.

Just google Touch Freeze you should see links where you can download Touch freeze for free.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day,

Jumping cursor when typing

Since you have a logitech mouse, lets just disable the touchpad. You should be able to disable the touchpad via one of these methods:
  1. Look on the top row of keys. You should have one that looks like a little mouse. If you do, hold down the "fn" key in the bottom, and press the key with the mouse on it. That *should* disable the touchpad.
  2. Go to the control panel, and find the keyboard and mouse settings. Digging through the menus, you should find a touchpad. You can disable it through there.
