Hi,
1) Are you refering to Touchpad?
If Touchpad, then go to Start/Control Panel/Mouse/1 tab usually is the Touchpad's, and there you can change the settings.

Hope it helps!

Try this software:

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: Acer Aspire 5315 micro dont work after installing Windows 7 :(

Hello rudifuhr37,

There might be a hardware compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the microphone driver. The following two web sites might offer information that can better help to find a possible solution.

1). The Microsoft Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility List. It can only be viewed with Internet Explorer.
http://windows7news.com/2009/09/20/windows-7-hardware-compatibility-list/

2). The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer Aspire 5315 is NOT in this list !):
http://www.acer.com/windows7upgrade/eligible.html

If this solution is helpful please click 'YES' by 'Was this helpful?' below.

Have a great day,

Toshiba u505 cursor jumps to other line when typing n


Hi.
Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be due to the Touchpad "Tapping feature".
This issue usually occurs when the Touchpad Tapping feature is enabled.
You may disable this option by following the steps mentioned below:
1) Click on the "Windows" logo icon. 2) Then, type "mouse" in the search option. 3) Click on the Mouse options which should be mentioned on the search list. 4) Once you have the Mouse options window open, click on the "Device Settings" tab. 5) Then, click on the "Settings" tab. 6) This will open the "Touchpad settings" window. 7) In this window, check for the "Tapping" option. 8) Once you have found that, disable that. 9) By doing this, you will disable the Touchpad tapping feature.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

Trying to disable tap to touch after windows 7 installation.


Yes without that original Synaptics software disabling tap to touch will be next to impossible. Try this Win7 Driver to see if that fixes you up.

My cursor jumps around in Outlook and also highlights things


Sounds like a hardware problem with your trackpad or your keyboard. I suggest attaching an external mouse and keyboard, then disable the touchpad and keyboard drivers in device manager. Reboot and see if it still happens

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)
      10583022.gif
      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.
