Have you done all updates, HotFix's in Windows and Lenovo? Take a look at the lenovo site: 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 :

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.

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:

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,

How do u edit an answer once posted

Currently, you cannot edit an answer once it's been posted. What I normally do if I have a typo or incorrect information is add a comment to my solution with the correct info.

The person who posted a problem also gets notified there is a new comment on the website and via email.

Hope that helps!

First thing I would do is talk to the friend ... you don't mention the model #, BTW. Don't expect much of an answer based on your question. Frigidaire probably has made millions of ovens in thousands of models for sale hundreds of markets.

I just bought a portable air conditioner model c120e. Unfortunately the exhaust hose is too short to use in my window. I have a home built in the mid 60's so the window ledge is higher than in more...

rlee - we don't stock or sell parts here on the FixYa website. We simply provide information on how to troubleshoot and solve problems with a host of things. However, you can find what you're looking for at any home center in the heating & air conditioning dept. What you need is pretty generic, but you'll have to buy more than what you need and cut it to size. Will it be identical? Probably not. But it will accomplish what you want and need to do. Be sure to take a section of your existing tubing with you, for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.
