Disable touch pad!

My laptop was purchased at least 3 or 4 years ago from PC laptops in Salt Lake City. I've had a chronic problem with the cursor jumping all over the screen when I am typing and starting to type somewhere else.

I've taken it in several times, and they've gone into the settings (somewhere deep where I don't know where to go!) to try to disable the touch pad while typing. They said it was because I was brushing the touch pad while typing. They finally concluded that this particular model doesn't have that capability.

I just noticed that the F10 key says Pad Lk, and wonder if that is a solution. I don't seem to be able to figure out how to use it. This computer just carries the PC Laptop brand. Near the edge, however is a label reading SD-MS/Pro-MMC. Can anyone help me?

    I tried the control panel-->mouse thing-->touchpad options and tried unchecking all the enable settings. I will see if that solves the problem. Thanks so much for your help.

Try Control Panel --> Mouse and adjust the settings there. In your last paragraph, you mentioned the label on the edge, that's for the multicard reader on the front of your laptop.

I have a medion akoya E1222, and when you type the cursor will move to a different part of the text.. muddling up the words...Very annoying


That is because your thumb is touching the cursor pad. It happens to everyone who uses laptops. Some laptop designers put the cursor pad off-centre because of this. With the akoya e1222 you can press [fn]+[f9] and that will disable the cursor pad. That way if you touch the pad by accident you don't mess up your words. When you need to use the mouse again press [fn]+[f9] again to re-enable the cursor pad.

With any laptop it pays to play with those function buttons. There are always some useful ones there.

Jumping letters on acer laptop when I type


You need to disable the touch pad while typing. During typing your palm can accidentally touch the touch pad causing the cursor to 'jump' randomly resulting in the problem.

You have not mentioned the model but on Acer laptops there's a key in the upper row with a 'pad and finger' figure on it. If the figure is in blue, press Fn together with the figure key to disable the touch pad and then again to enable it.

Touch pad possessed.


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

For extra USB ports, purchase a USB hub($15 -$20). That way you can add at least 4 USB ports to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
