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?

There should be a touch pad icon in lower right where your tasbar is, right click for options to disable, if no luck! go into device manager, it will give a list of drivers, locate the touch pad, click on plus to the left and right click, there should be a choice to disable, click over that to disable.
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.
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
