Acer Aspire 5572 cursor's jump

The OS is Window Vista, and sometimes, the cursor jump to other location when typing. When unnoticed, I may be writing in the middle of the page. Most of the time happen when using microsoft words and explorer.

Dear all I have the same problem, but I have a Sony VAIO TZ170N.
Didnt find any option to set touchpad configuration. I also installed all TZ drivers that I found on sony site support.
Do you think is a keybord problem ? Thank you

Change the sensitivity to your touchpad. It is common when typing for the palm to brush up against the touchpad and the cursor jumps. Should be an Icon in your control panel to take care of it.

Cursure jumps while typing and I'm kicked out of PowerPoint slide show


Ah, the Vista mouse annoyance! Go into your control panel, and in the Mouse properties, set the pointer speed a bit slower until the cursor stops bouncing all over.

Jumping cursor


This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.

Acer aspire 5572 problem


your problem is called BSOD (blue screen of death).
many thing can cause this problem.
most common thing that cause BSOD are Operating system, memory and harddrive.
sometime motherboard+cpu can cause BSOD too, but not as often as memory+hdd+OS.
you should re-installed it first, if you still have BSOD,
ask your technician to check hdd and memory, if they can check motherboard + cpu, it would be good for you,

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.

Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
