    I have tried all of that but the problem continues.
    Even when I try to type with just 2 fingers away from the pad,
    it still jumps.

Set the sensitivity for the touch-pad to a lower setting.

    you can turn off the touch-pad and use a usb micro mouse. This is what I ended up doing with mine.

Jumping Cursor


Your thumbs may be getting too close to the the mousepad
while you're typing. Try holding them further away. Worst case,
you may have a dirty or defective keyboard. Try cleaning under
the keys.

Hi,
I believe I can help in what you are experiencing with your jumping cursor concern. you mentioned that you downloaded a driver, try downloading touch freeze, google it it will give you links where to download it and it is free, this should fix your jumping cursor issue

any of the links will lead you to the downloads page for the application.
once downloaded this is what you should see on your task bar, see image below. an icon of a touchpad with a check mark on it.

Hope this helps with your touchpad concern, Have a nice day.

My desktop pc window is jumping up and down. cannot control curser or jumping. intermittent problem.


What do you mean you can't control the cursor? Sounds like two different problems to me. The jumping is more than likely your monitor taking a ****. Check the monitor plug to be sure it is tight. Explain the cursor problem more is it the mouse cursor that won't move?

Jumping letters on acer laptop when I type


You need to disable the touch pad while typing. During typing your palm can accidentally touch the touch pad causing the cursor to 'jump' randomly resulting in the problem.

You have not mentioned the model but on Acer laptops there's a key in the upper row with a 'pad and finger' figure on it. If the figure is in blue, press Fn together with the figure key to disable the touch pad and then again to enable it.

Does your laptop have touchpad that acts as a mouse if you don't have a mouse plugged in (it's usually directly below the spacebar)? If any part of your hand accidentally brushes that sensitive rectangular area, it will cause the mouse cursor to jump around.

There is usually a button you can push at the top of the rectangular touchpad to turn it off while you're typing. On my HP laptop it has a blue light, and when I push the button it turns red.

you are suffering from pre mousepad failure syndrome....it usually culminates from grease, oil, dirt, etc, getting into the edges, and compromising the innards..

time for a new palm rest, methinks.
