You need to go to the mouse settings. This is usually in Control Panel.
If using Vista, you can click the start button and in the search field, just type "mouse". That will find exactly what you're looking for.

Once you go into the Mouse Properties, click on the Tapping tab. There should be an option (checkbox) that says "Tap off when typing".

Check that box and you should be ok.

I remember a lot of people having this problem when the touchpad is very sensitive and your hand/arm/cloth brushes or well hoovers over it while you type. You can try to set the sensitivity of the touchpad a bit lower. Other than that may also be a virus, install a good antivirus like AVG and do a full clean, and from time to time clean the registry, but in most cases it is the too sensitivity of the touchpad.

On my laptop, the cursor jumps unpredictably to previously entered text.


The space bar 'contacts', internally are dirty or defective. You will probably need to replace the keyboard or seek from manufacturer a 'cleaning process ' for this keyboard.

Watch out when typing. You're probably hitting the touchpad below the keyboard with the heel of your hand. Keep your wrists up a bit and that should take care of the problem. I believe this series has a switch on the touchpad bezel so you can turn it off until you want to use it again.

Laptop keyboard issues


Is this a laptop? Some laptops will allow you to use these keys as the number pad/arrow pad as well in a certain mode. You will likely be able to turn off with a combination of the FN key plus one of keys F1-F12 (the function key will perform the action shown as a symbol on these keys).

If none of the symbols seems to indicate this mode. Try each combination and test to see which combination sets your keyboard mode back to normal.

Keyboard Cursor Jumping


I have been having the same problem for some time now with my Acer laptop and windows vista.
What worked for me was changing a Mouse setting in the Control Panel.
Go to Control Panel -> Mouse. Then go to the "Tapping" tab and make sure that the "Tap off when typing" box is Checked
