Try the Mouse Properties options in the Control Panel. Just as we have mouse pointer speed adjustability option for Desktop PC similarly there MUST be something for the laptop too.
One of my friends was experiencing a similar problem i.e. mouse jumps
about erratically even on slightest of touches. What he did was (it
might sound weird but worked for him) stuck a broad enough, transparent
sticking tape (one used for packing small gift boxes, etc.) on it.
One must have steady hands to do it. It should be done in one effort
only. Repeated pealing off the tape and re-sticking can damage your
touchpad. I personally WOULDN'T suggest you the "Sticky Tape" option. Do it only as last resort i.e if you don't find any other remedy.
Or best yet. Just buy an external USB mouse, plug it in and use it whenever you're at home or work and use the mousepad only while traveling.!!!
1 . Look for Fn function key - Most laptops have this special key Fn that is next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It should have a blue or green color, easy to find.
2 . Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touch pad, which is to control the touch pad of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.
3 . Now hold down the Fn key and the F10 key to enable the touch pad, in this example, the Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it
4 . If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touch pad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touch pad driver is installed and working properly.
Since it is a Laptop you can not just go over to the Scroll Bar. Move the arrow from the mouse over to the scroll bar. Hold on the left key below the mousepad. The scroll bar should turn a differnt color. Move the scroll bar up and down with your finger,using the mousepad.
Your laptop probably disables your touchpad when any USB mouse is detected. This is pretty reasonable, since your palms can easily stray over the touchpad during touch-typing. I'm not sure how to go about disabling that, but I'm 95% sure there's a way (even if it involves some command-line stuff).
Your mouse could be defective, but let's try a few things first.
Try to remove any wireless devices close to it (i.e. wireless router)or try to plug it in a new USB port.
Last thing try to use a very dark mousepad. The laser respond to reflection so any white on a mousepad combined with some sun light could result in a free for all mouse pointer.
Have you reset the button on the bottom of the keyboard? If you haven't, try doing so and also if it doesn't work, push the receiver button and then the reset button on the bottom of the keyboard. Hope that helps. Bud
I read somwhere that most motherboards have a third layer of conductors laminated in the middle of board.It could be possible that you are shorting out something there. Take the screws out and try it without the heatsink for a minute or so. Most big DUI stores sell plastic screws in their hardware areas. These will work no problem.
Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the
USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When
the program asks you to connect the MouseReceiver to the USB
port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
this is usually caused by the user brushing against the mouse pad or tracker point, some laptops use ase smart software to detect when you are typing whilst others use a disable switch which disables the trackpad/mousepad
I've noted that certain mousepads do cause problems- it seems to be with the graphics on the pad- reflective/light/dark areas on the pad cause the different movement patterns.
I'd guess a pad with a dull non-reflective & uniform color might be best.
