Curser hops all over when typing

When I am typing, the curser moves itself and places it somewhere else so that I have to go back and retype everything.

    I may have fixed it now but am not sure. I was reformating my laptop, and noticed that the mouse pad didt allow me to increase of decrease size. I downloaded off acer.com a driver for te pad and restored the second problem. It appears that the hopping has stopped, but I have to first work with a bigger document to see if the problems are related. I didnt have the acer recoverymanagement program on this computer for some reason, and the store I bought it from went bankrupt, so I have been on my own to figure it out. So if I didnt fix it, then I will come back to this forum.

Hello, this is a sign that your system has virus. You need to re install windows and problem will be fixed.

Good luck

Testimonial: "I appreciate the innput - have not yet innstalled a virus program as my husband is very against virus programs and say that they slow down the computer. I believe that the missing driver was the problem (see previous post)as my laptop is behaving OK now. I have, however, had a lighter form of this problem before i rebooted the machine 2 weeks ago. For some reason, I dont have the Acer Recovery Management in my programs, so after taking a back-up, we reinstalled Windows 7 and encountered numerous "holes" in my PC. It is like having a leaking boat, and I have used 2 weeks redoing the process (reinnstalling Windows 7 3 times). I appreciate all the innput and followup. I now will have to find this Acer Recovery Management program. Thanks again! "

    I had already reinstalled windows but I believe it was the driver to the mousepad that was missing (TouchPad_Synaptics_13.2.2). I have not installed a virus program yet but have plans t do so. Thanks for your help.

My acer aspire has a roaming curser


sounds like you need to go to your control panel and go to mouse and go to pointer options and check pointer precision, uncheck snap to or uncheck display pointer trails. Your problem will be in mouse and what you have checked or not checked.

Most of the time you can recover the message by hitting ctrl + z. the curser diapering may be a software glitch or a setting somewhere, and I do not have an explanation for the curser moving by its self except maybe accidently touching the sensor with your wrist, they use the heat from the part of your body that touches them so it is very easy to accidently touch it and not realize.

This is usually caused from the touch pad just below the keyboard. The easiest fix is to turn the touch pad off when you are going to do a lot of typing.

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.. Try to unistall the drivers of touchpad from the device manager.. Then install a fresh copy from the dell website(www.support.acer.com).. If the issue is yet to be fixed please contact Acer to replace the touchpad....

The curser keeps jumping from the current spot back to somewhere where I've already typed


Are you relatively new to this laptop?

I'm asking, because I suspect that you suffer from the same problem many laptop users have, namely too sensitive touchpad. I myself had this problem with one or two laptops...
When you keep your hands low and parallel to the keyboard, it sometimes happens that when moving the hand slightly to reach keys in the upper keyboard regions, the base of your thumb just barely touches the touchpad, resulting in moving the cursor :) The base of a thumb is protruding lower than the thumb itself, and is not very sensitive to touch, so one does not feel the base barely sliding up the touchpad.
There are two solutions.
First is to go to touchpad settings, and make it less sensitive to light touch. Better yet, some touchpad drivers have a function to prevent from accidental dragging objects by light touch, which needs to be enabled.
If the driver lacks such adjustments, the only remedy is to try and position the hands a bit higher than you currently do. It may be hard at first, but it's relatively easy to form a habit of it :)
Good luck :)

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.

While im typing, my curser skips back into the middle of my sentences, and i have to retype my whole sentence again...what is causing this to happen and how can i fix, thank you


if it is the same thing that happens to me you need to shut off your touchpad (mousepad) when you are typing as your fingers or palms cause the curser to jump if you touch it while typing

Typing moves?


It could be that your hands are brushing against your trackpad.

Typing and keyboard issues


If you're using a laptop, it sounds like the trackpad is too sensitive, so that as you type, when your thumbs touch the pad, the cursor moves.  You can adjust this easily in settings/preferences.
