Sounds like your internal mouse maybe be malfunctioning and due to the pressure on the spacebar is causing the erratic movement.

To fix this you can enter your BIOS with the F2 key at startup.

Continue through until you find some input options to disable the internal mouse.

Problem with spacebar key


I don't quite understand why this would happen after pluggin in a USB mouse - but I've seen it numerous times after a liquid has been spilled on a keyboard.

Sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Best way to test this is to plug in an external usb keyboard and see if you can type normally on it.

If the laptop keyboard exhibits this behavior, and the external keyboard doesn't - you should replace the laptop keyboard.

I get ERR: DOMAIN everytime I try to inverse a matrix


  1. First, Press the "MATRX" button

  2. Next, enter a matrix into the calculator. To enter a matrix, press the arrow that points to the right two times when the cursor highlights letter "A." This moves the top cursor to "Edit." Press "Enter" to select the "Edit" option.

  3. Next,, enter the matrix's numbers into the matrix on the calculator. Press "Enter" to move the cursor over one column. Press a button that has a dash symbol within parenthesis [( - )] to move down one row. Repeat the steps until the matrix is completed.

  4. Next, Press "2nd" then "Mode" to go back to the home screen. Press "MATRX" to enter the matrix screen again.

  5. Finally, press "Enter" when the cursor highlights matrix "A" then press "[x^ -1]." Your screen should read "[A]^ -1." Press "Enter" again to display the inverse matrix.

Cursor on my keypad 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:.

a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.

c. Click Mouse.

d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.

e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.

f. Click OK.

g. 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.

4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.

5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

Erratic cursor


It happens with both? Sounds like it may be a driver or motherboard issue.

Check the HDD for errors with Checkdisk (Start -> Run -> cmd -> Ok -> chkdsk /f
Try redownloading the touchpad/mouse drivers from the Toshiba site
