You will need to replace the pads. It's possible that they have outlived their usefulness. Check eBay. A lot of people sell replacement parts for notebooks on there.

My cursor disappeared on my Samsung 303C12. Is there a way to turn the cursor on and off?


It sounds like you turned off your track pad. On some laptops there is an indentation on the pad to turn on and off and some have buttons on the laptop. Did you go into your track pad properties to see if it is on? You can do this by clicking on the mouse on the lower left corner of your laptop or by going into control panel. I hope this helps.

This happens for 1 of 2 reasons: 1. Either your wrist hits the mouse pad and that makes the cursor move
2. If your mouse moves all the time without your control you need to have your palm rest replaced

My cursor will not move on my laptop screen


Hello,

The reason your cursor will not show on screen is because the laptop jammed.

To fix this,

Try to shut down properly,

Then you remove the battery and reinstall it.

Turn it on back and your cursor will come back on.

Take care

Jumping cursor


First, try to adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad in the control panel for the mouse. If this doesn't work you can just plug in an external mouse to disable the touchpad. If it still jumps, read the following.

This will involve opening the top part of the laptop. Usually there is a plastic piece holding down the keyboard. Directly above the keyboard. Use a flat head screwdriver to remove it.

Once you see the keyboard, then remove it. Just below that is the connection to the touchpad, undo it and just tape it to an area underneath the touchpad.
