My cursor does not stay where it is supposed to.

As I am typing, the cursor moves on its own so that my typing ends up in a wrong place.

I think you need to buy a new mouse or test a diffrent one on your computer. You might also want to try and change the mouse settings. You can do that by right clicking the mouse icon in the taskbar and from there open the mouse control panel. mess around with the settings to change the speed at which it moves. If its not the problem then you might want to try and reinstalling your mouse driver. Dell computers have mouse drivers on the site. Takes a few seconds to download and install.

SOURCE: cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse

Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!

SOURCE: automatically cursor jumps

I have a Thinkpad T40 that's had this problem for around a year. I've completely disabled the Touchpad, so that's not the cause. I use only the TrackPoint "button" in the middle of the keyboard, and the cursor jumps when it's not being touched.

I have Avira anti-virus working actively (often too actively, since it updates twice a day or more!), and run anti-malware programs from time to time, so I don't think that's the answer either.

HELP?!?

SOURCE: while typing on my laptop, my cursor jumps to

Hi,
I guess the 'other places of the pages' is mostly the beginning of the line? It usually happens when the key stroke is not proper while using combination keys. Or also it happens when if you dont release a key when you press the next in between your speedy typings.

Cursor moves while typing


You may need to disable the touchpad. Your wrists may be brushing the touchpad, causing the cursor to move.

My cursor won't stay in a box or on a line


i assume you do not have an external mouse connected to it, the problem that I have seen most often, is that people tend to put their palm or wrist on the touchpad and it causes the mouse to move. i would go into the control panel and make the pad less sensitive.
if its another issue, please let me know

thanks

chances are you are either taping the mouse pad or if you have one of those glide sticks in your keyboard, its probably that. If you right click on the mosepad icon in the bottom right tool bar (by the clock) click properties and in there you should be able to disable the glide stick and also disable the mousepad if it senses a usb mouse is being used. Let me know what you find out.

My cursor darts to a corner without moving mouse


do you have Word with that weird little paperclip helper? some computers have presets that make it (or your cursor) move out of the way so you can see what you're typing as that many people (not including me!) touch type while looking at the screen and the cursor being in the way is VERY distracting to them.
