SOURCE: 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.

Dell pc pointer jumps while and after typing


Make sure your fingers/palms aren't grazing the touchpad as you're typing. What's probably happening is your hands are too close to the touchpad, making the computer think you're using the mouse, and thus jumping the cursor around.

When i type in my MS word or replying mail using outlook, my cursor jumps to somewhere, actually it just happened several times when i type this message


On your touch pad exists a place that works like a scroller on the mouse (Usually the right part of pad with white lining). When you rest your wrists in this area, the cursor usually jumps in another place. I'm of course hoping that this is the problem and that your touch pad works fine. Try it and please tell me if this fails..

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.

Cursor jumps around


Does the cursor jump around when your hands are nowhere near the touchpad? The touchpads are heat and pressure sensitive. I personally have very warm (and sometimes sweaty) hands. I have this problem often when working on laptops. If I hover my hands over the pad, it causes the mouse to move. I've had to take a business card, put tape on one side of it, and use it as a flip-cover for the touchpad on most of my laptops. If the cursor moves around when you're nowhere near the laptop, then you may want to try disabling the pointing stick (if it has one). I've had several clients with laptops where the pointing stick mouse control go crazy and move and click on things.

Moving cursor


Hi, sheila_sharp.

Please make sure you remove any dirt and/or fluid found on your touchpad. Even the tiniest grain of dirt may result in this. If you are using an external mouse, poor quality mice may cause this type of behavior.

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.

I have a toshiba sattelite pro whose cursor jumps around the screen when i am typing. is there any way to stop this as it is really annoying?


Either its because you are hitting your touchpad while you are typing, or the little eraser mouse ball thats on the keyboard is faulty. If that is bad, you must replace the keyboard.
