Typing problem with keyboard

When I am typing, no matter what program or email I am using my cursor will constantly move backwards and I end up typing over what I have already typed. It's happened 6 times trying to type this. This is MADDENING! Can you please tell me why this is happening? Thank you so much.

    Apparently my "Mouse" Control panel does not have a "Device Setting" tab. Do I need to update something?

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

    You may need to install the ALPS touchpad driver which can be downloaded from the toshiba website(under Downloads)!

    Also i see they have an TouchPad enable/disable utility that you can look into which can also be downloaded from the toshiba site!

Well, technically it is not moving it backwards, it is moving the cursor to wherever the 'pointer' is.
You need to STOP resting your palm(s) on the Touchpad.

When you touch it, it will move the cursor to wherever the 'pointer' is....which is likely where you started typing.

You can also turn-off the touch-pad if you will be doing lots of typing. This is done by pressing [Fn] and [F3].

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

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.
