Check if there is a rounded area in one side of your touchpad. Tap it twice and it should unlock your track pad.

SOURCE: Cursor jumps around

Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

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.

SOURCE: How do I unlock the touch pad on my HP mini

I'm not sure what you operating system is but I'd suggest you go to your Control Panel and look for Touch pad and look at the settings there, If there's no Touchpad listed have a look in the Mouse settings.

SOURCE: Cursor frozen

I had the same problem. I bought it 3 days ago. I am a DIY (Do it yourself) guy so I uninstalled all the demo and crappy software that comes preloaded from the store. No problems. Installed Dreamweaver C5, Photoshop CS5, Office, and some other things. No, I don't use Symantec Norton Antivirus , so I uninstalled it to install my own ESET NOD32. Then it started to freeze. Looked for hardware updates, software updates ( sometimes I would just turn on my computer and it would just freeze immediately). Searched the forums, found somewhere that it might be a bad circuit on the motherboard ( which sucked cause I got it refurbished - 7 days take it back and I bought it on sale in another state ) then I said "Darn with ESET - UNINSTALL ). Never had a problem since. All I am saying is that it may be a software conflict. Try and see which software is not compatible with your laptop. 5534 Aspire has a 64bit processor, and I installed the 64bit NOD32. Seems it still doesn't digest it well so for now, no antivirus for me ...

How do I unlock my cursor on my laptop when the yellow light on the mouse pad is not on?


Do you have a micro USB device plugged in. Some touch pads automatically disable if you plug in any type of USB mouse device. You can also go into the device manager and uninstall the pad (do not use the delete/remove drivers option), then reboot. Windows will reinstall the device, and sometimes that fixes issues. Or do like it do and use a wireless mouse. I hate those touch pads anyway. ;-)

Why is my spacebar scrolling at times?


Hi Norman,

The keyboard acts as a text tool when you've clicked in a text box and as a scroll button when you click outside a text box on a web page. Since you say you have a laptop, I'm guessing that you click the text box to type, start typing, and while you're typing, your palm touches the mouse track pad just enough to register as a click while the mouse cursor is elsewhere on the page. I'm not sure if there's a setting to make the space bar stop scrolling altogether but there are settings to make the track pad less sensitive if your track pad manufacturer supports it. For WIndows 7, go to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound and click Mouse under Devices and Printers. As mine is a Synaptics device, this window gives me an extra tab with extra settings. It may be worth checking out yours to see if you can turn down the sensitivity. Some laptops also have a handy key combination to turn the track pad on and off. Mines Function F7, but it's probably manufacturer specific. Check your laptop documentation to see if this might be an option.

Cursor jumping


I have had this same issue. I realized one day that the palm of my hand was touching the track pad intermittently. Some of the HP laptops have super sensitive track pads. Mine actually has a button that disables it for typing. let me know, if this helps.

Touch pad scroll is not working


The reason why your cursor is jumping all over the screen is because you are touching it by mistake with your thumb or hand somehow. You can turn the sensitivity down ans set two finger scroll (and other options) for your touchpad - go to control panel > mouse > device settings >


If you do not have device settings, you need to download the official drivers and software to enable all features. The driver you have is probably the default win 8 generic one. Let me know the model number of your laptop and I can help.

While typing cursor jumps of to different lines and different areas


If you are using the touch pad, try turn it off and using an USB mouse. I have found that my palm hits the touch pad and causes random cursor movements.

My computer comes on opens windows all looks ok as soon as i touch the cursor, nothing responds,


Make sure that the track-pad (mouse-pad) is not disabled. There should be a button located above the track-pad that allows you to disable or enable the track-pad. If not, I would use a USB mouse and then go into the Control Panel, mouse and change settings there to enable the track-pad.

This issue could be due to corrupt Touchpad drivers or corrupt Touchpad sensitivity settings or corrupt BIOS settings. To isolate this issue, please perform the steps provided below: 1. Uninstall and reinstall touchpad driver on the notebook. 2. Decrease the Touch Sensitivity of the Touchpad. If you are using Windows Vista on your notebook then you can follow the steps listed below for decreasing the touch sensitivity of the touchpad: a. Click Start and type ?Mouse? without quotes in Search field. b. Click on Mouse from the results list. c. This will open d. Click on Tapping tab in the Mouse Properties window. e. Click the Touch Sensitivity Button to launch Touchpad settings. f. Move the slider to the desired setting (in between Light touch to Hard touch) This will adjust the Touch sensitivity of the touch pad. Now check for the issue. 3. If the issue persists, then update BIOS on your notebook. To update BIOS, go to the HP drivers download page for your notebook model and then download and install the latest available BIOS update.
