If your laptop has the option too you can turn off touch pad through a switch above the touch pad.

If you can't find this, or you don't have one, simply go to the run command and type in devmgmt.msc, ok.

Once in the device manager go "Mice and Other Pointing Devices"
look for your touchpad, right click on it and select disable.

Please note, some laptops wont let you disable to the touchpad, mine wont, but mine has an on and off key.

ON/OFF Key
Touch Pad On
Touch Pad Off

This will keep the mouse from moving whole you type, but I suggest you get a regular mouse, especially if you have to disable the device with the Device manager.

My cursor jumps suddenly from one place to another, it's very annoying while typing emails, word documents, everywhere... pls help


The usual reason this happens in laptops is that as you're typing, you hit the touchpad with the heel of your hand and the cursor moves. I've done it myself. What I suggest is turning off the touchpad and using an external mouse if you do a lot of typing. This eliminates the accidental contact, and (to me, at least) a real mouse is more comfortable for frequent use. Most computers have a switch that turns the touchpad on or off, or you can disable it through the Windows Control Panel or touchpad utility program.

Cursor jumps whilst typing


Hello, If your cursor jumps while typing, i would want to know if this has been happening before if not then it means that your laptop has been infected with virus or malicious programs, i suggest you get a good anti-virus and scan your laptop thoroughly to remove the virus.. You can also try using an external mouse and see if the cursor jumps while typing. If none of this works try backing up all your documents to an external hard drive and format your hard drive or re-install your operating system. Regards

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.

Cursor position jumps back or down a line or two in Outlook.


Are you using windows vista? If so, that is a common problem with vista. The reason is the driver for the touchpad. Your palm may brush up against the touchpad while you are typing which moves the cursor all around. You can open up the properties for the touchpad (in control panel or by right clicking the icon next to the clock that corresponds to the touchpad and selecting properties), and play around with the sensitivity and palmtouch options in it as well as make sure you have the most up to date drivers available if you are using vista. Oh and one more thing, please give this solution a fixya rating. Thanks!

Cursor(pointer) cannot be moved by using touchpad but possibe wit


Hi,

This happens to me also. Check whether the touchpad is enabled (laptops do have an option of enabling / disabling the touchpad). Secondly, you can try reinstalling the touchpad driver. Uninstall and then re-install the driver. Re-boot the system. Try using the touchpad.

Hope this helps., if so, rate me.. thanks - billa
