I see people with I phone and other technology problems. So where should I look at on your web page for my specific problem? I only see one person who asking a simmillar question like mine about Window 8 & his cursor jumping around. Thank you very much I appreciate your help.

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.

SOURCE: Cursor jumps around

I have suggested in the past that people with this type of problem download Intellipoint Mouse software, from Microsoft.

It's a free download, and so far, I have had a good rate of this solution working.

Here is the download page from Microsoft.com,

SOURCE: Jumping cursor on EEE pc.

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

SOURCE: When typing cursor keeps jumping

Generally there is a setting (CONTROL PANEL, MOUSE, Touchpad Tab) to either enable a feature like PALMCHECK or to disable the touchpad while typing. If neither option is shown, then try updating your touchpad driver

SOURCE: when typing, my cursor will randomly jump to some

Hi rbdav1,

Based on your situation. I suggest trying the following steps:

1. Download touchpad driver from here:

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=600154

2. go to Touchpad section and make sure you select the Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 version of the drivers that matches your Windows operating system.

3. After downloading the touchpad driver driver install it and then restart your computer.

4. Log back in to your computer then go to control panel --> open mouse properties then look for Alps pointing device tab.

5. Under Alps tab uncheck tap off when typing.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using FixYa

Best regards,

Reyjoshua07

Hello

There are five different models of the G580 laptop on the Lenovo web site. You may need to open each one to find the correct driver that you are looking for.

Below is the main web page that lists all 5 models.

PRINTER TO LAPTOP


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.

Lenovo580 20157 laptop camera not working.


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: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

I can not add windows 7 in my laptop


There is no reason you can load Windows 7 on a Lennovo G580, all you need is a Windows 7 32/64bit Installation DVD with a Product Key. I assume you laptop has a 64bit compatible processor. The Support for your laptop: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT073548 Supports Win 7 and Win 8. Are you doing a downgrade?

Have you done all updates, HotFix's in Windows and Lenovo? Take a look at the lenovo site: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT073547. Open the software (Synaptics or Elan?) associated with the touchpad, look for sensitivity, may be a adjustment. It's new, so use the Tech support at : http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/feedback/contactsupport.page?

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.
