Cursor moves by itself on ACER 5315?

I have an ACER 5315 and when I am typing, the curser will move to a different place on the page and I start typing in a different spot before I realize it. What can I do about this? Thanks!

    I had the same problem and I realized I was hitting an "F"key from time to time accidentally. My wife had the same problem until she adjusted her hands for longer nails.

You're probably hitting the touchpad and moving it involuntarily. Happens to me all the time.

Make sure that you are not placing the hand on the touchpad while typing.... This might be due to the drivers issue with the touchpad..

Boot the computer in safe mode. Do this by pressing F8 while the computer is starting then select safe mode. Log into account and run the anti virus. Cursor should work in safe mode.

When i type the curser puts the text all over the place- what is the apparent problem


If you are "cursing" at the "cursor", you are the "curser".

Keep your thumbs and palms away from the touchpad.
Sometimes, you don't have to make contact with the touchpad
for it to move the mouse.

Or, your computer has a computer-virus, and some hacker has "remote-control" of your computer, and is moving your mouse-pointer.

The cursor moves by itself during typing. It jumps to a position and I find myself typing in the wrong place.


I have found this is usually the small button in the middle of the keyboard (mouse button) I have tried some software to remove this problem but it did not on my laptop I ended up carefully removing the key board and disconnecting the two wires that go to the button My cursors kept moving across the screen
