    In my Dell Inspiron 1525 the cursor changes placement while you are typing; that is, you end up typing in a different line, at the beginning of a sentence or even in a different box! It seems like the mouse clicks itself!

    I have the same problem. It is so frustrating

    Not an issue of inadvertantly touching another key.  I can recreate the problem typing  "tom" quickly.

    I thought I was the only one, and I can assure you that I am not clicking on the touch pad. It drives me absolutely insane. Anyone have a fix or know if there is a fix to this now common issue ?

    In Vista there is no icon for the touch pad in Control Panel / Mouse.

I've been struggling with this issue as well. I type really fast so I thought i was inadvertantly hitting the touchpad and moving the cursor. Maybe, maybe not. But today I discovered that changing one of the dafault settings for the touchpad has eliminating the jumping cursor trouble and I can type fast again without constantly checking my screen to see which line I'm actually typing in.

Here's what I did: Go to the control panel and the mouse and click on the icon for the touchpad and uncheck the touchpad setting "tap to click"

I also put my speed and sensitivity about in the mid-range. (Another suggestion that didn't work was to make my touchpad less sensitive).

Happy typing!

You might be accidentally tapping the touchpad, try typing with your hands raised a little bit higher and see if that helps.

Typing on a DELL Inspiron 1525 keyboard, the typing often appears somewhere else to the left on the line or a couple of lines up.


This problem can be very frustrating! It is typically from you hand moving over the touch pad to type on the keys. It would be lovely if they weren't designed so. To reduce the problem change the sensitivity of the touch pad to a lower level so it is not as sensitive.

I have a problem with a jumping keyboard...


This is on a laptop? I use to have the same thing happen to me, couldn't figure out what it was until I paid close attention to what I was doing. When i was typing the bottom part of my palms use to just touch the touch pad moving the cursor. Watch yourself see if that's what's happening. The best way to test this would be to disable your touchpad while your typing and see if it happens. If it doesn't, enable your touchpad again. If it starts happening again i would said that's what it is. Hopefully that'll take care of it for you.

Hello !!

I have seen this problem many times and the most common reason is Spyware or Malware.


So, download, update and run from these sites: http://www.spybot.com and http://www.malwarebytes.com. With Malwarebytes, be certin to choose the free software.

Hope this helps.

Cursor jumps around when typing. It will go anywhere in the document. Happens in all programs.


What type of keyboard you are using (PS/2 or USB)? Is that a regular keyboard or multimedia keyboard? You need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below.

If you are using a USB keyboard:

1. Connect the keyboard into different USB ports of the computer.
2. Connect the keyboard into different computer.
3. Try using different keyboard to see if the problem will persist.


If that is a wireless keyboard:

1. Try replacing the battery
2. Connect the receiver into different USB ports.

Check the keyboard settings:

1. Go to the Control Panel > Keyboard
2. Adjust the keyboard settings and speed.

Hope it helps and have a great day!
