Straight from the user guide, just discovered it today because I have also been having this frustrating problem. Use Fn + F6 - it is a toggle switch to enable and disable the Touchpad. I have a Lenovo wireless mouse now instead.

SOURCE: Cursor jumps around

If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

  1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
  2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
    1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
    3. Click Mouse.
    4. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab. (Figure 1)
      Figure 1: Pointer Speed
    5. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
  3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

Try this software:

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.

When that problem happens to me I turn off my pointer pad. I have a Compaq Presario and it has a button to shut off the mouse pad. When I simply shut it off it does not jump when I am typing. I don't know the originating cause but at least I can make the annoyance go away when it would bother me the most. Hope this helps.

You're hitting the touchpad with your palms as you type. Either lift your hands when you're typing or temporarily disable the touchpad.

I have installed windows 8 for my new laptop lenovo G580. The scroll has not been working since then. I have been trying all the ways to unlock it but couldn't find the solution.

Just one of the many flaws in Windows 8. Unless you have a touchscreen laptop, you have wasted your money. Sorry! But, in reference to your problem, it would seem as if you have not installed the operating system correctly. Your laptop is available with Win 8 pre-installed. So, it should work fine. I would suggest checking your device drivers.

First download and install the correct software for the Printer on the laptop, you didn't post the HP printer model. In the install of the software follow the on-screen instructions. OR plug in the Printer using a USB printer cable, the Win 8 software should try to apply the driver, if available, but you may not have ALL the printer functions until you install the correct HP Printer software.

Try re-installing the WEBcam river.
The same model Lenovo can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your Lenovo, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
