Cursor Constant Movements

When I am typing, no matter what program or email I am using, my cursor will constantly move backwards or somewhere (top/bottom of the screen) and I end up typing over what I have already typed. It's been happening for a while. This is Annoying!

Can anyone please help me why this is happening? I called Compaq/ HP, they told me that my warranty just expired.

Thank you so much in advance.

Tip

Typing on a laptop, cursor jumps to different places, you suddenly type in a...


This is a very common problem to people who purchase a new laptop, or change from a desktop computer to a laptop. When typing, the cursor suddenly moves all over the place (but usually up) and you find yourself typing elsewhere in the document.

The secret is... the touchpad.

When typing on a standard keyboard, people usually rest their palms on the front portion of the keyboard, or on a special palmrest. Typing on a laptop is a slightly different experience - you have to keep the hands more apart, to avoid placing them on the touchpad.
But even if the hands are apart, you have to move them slightly while typing to comfortably reach the upper rows of keys. Depending on typing habits, the movements will be larger or smaller, but there is always some movement.

Now consider this. If you look at your hand from the side, you will notice, that the base of your thumb protrudes down the lowest. When moving the hands while typing, you very gently touch/stroke the touchpad with the base of your thumb - even if you don't feel it :)
Unfortunately the touchpad feels it, and acts as if you deliberately moved the cursor and placed it somewhere above the spot in the document you were actually typing in.

There are two remedies.

First, and one that has to be excercised anyway, is to try and keep the palms well above the surface of the touchpad. It takes some practice to change one's typing habits, but eventually you'll do it. It's just a matter of finding a palm placement that will be equally comfortable, but will also lower the possibility of involuntarily touching the touchpad.

Second is to go to your system's controls, find settings for the pointing device, and search for options regarding touchpad sensitivity.

There are multiple flavors of these settings, so it's not possible to give one standard recipe, but if you have an original touchpad driver installed (as oposed to using a standard mouse driver, which is enough for the system to recognize the touchpad), there should be a special settings screen for it, and among other options, a sensitivity setting.
Sometimes there's also an option (checkbox) designed specifically to fix this issue - usually it's called something like "eliminate problems with light touch" or sth to that effect.

Please try it, I guarantee that in 99% of the "sudden cursor movement" cases this is the actual cause :)

Good luck, and please don't forget to come back and rate the tip if helped :)

When I am typing he cursor jumps around


It is a fault with Lenovo laptops. My cursor jumps all the time, no matter what software I am using. It is NOT the 'sensitivity' of the touchpad, for my cursor jumps even when I am not typing, even if I don't touch the laptop! I can set the cursor to a certain point on a document and then, after about 30 seconds, it will just jump to another point, even if I am in another room.

Moving cursor


Hi, sheila_sharp.

Please make sure you remove any dirt and/or fluid found on your touchpad. Even the tiniest grain of dirt may result in this. If you are using an external mouse, poor quality mice may cause this type of behavior.

Typing problem with keyboard


the easy method would be to hook up a USB mouse and disable the touchpad to see if that works. Control Panel -> Mouse (or Printers and other Hardware), then click on the mouse and then click on Advanced or Hardware tab to look at the options. You might be able to have it disable the touchpad when a mouse is present.

Typing problem with keyboard


Here a suggestion, it may or may not be the problem! Sometimes the sensitivity of the touchpad might be too low and your hands inadvertently move the cursor. Also the touchpad has a builtin feature that prevents accidental contact(palm check) You can lower the sensitivity by going into control panel and open Mouse! Go to Device Settings and with the touchpad selected click on settings. There you'll see sensitivity and you can adjust the settings. You can also modify the palm check features right there! if you have any complications or if that's not it, kindly let me know! regards, babb
