Typing problem with keyboard

When I am typing, no matter what program or email I am using my cursor will constantly move backwards and I end up typing over what I have already typed. It's happened 6 times trying to type this. This is MADDENING! Can you please tell me why this is happening? Thank you so much. Touchpad Sensitivity - Toshiba Satellite M55-S329: My cursor has recently begun to jump around like crazy when I type. I believe it's because my hands are brushing over the touchpad, which is overly sensitive. There is nowhere in Control Panel for me to adjust the sensitivity on my touchpad, just to enable or disable it. I downloaded the ALPS Touchpad Driver as per Babbs suggestion on this website. Now what? Where does that driver live? Or how do I access it? Any other ideas?

The easy method would be to hook up a USB mouse and disable the touchpad to see if that works. Control Panel -> Mouse (or Printers and other Hardware), then click on the mouse and then click on Advanced or Hardware tab to look at the options. You might be able to have it disable the touchpad when a mouse is present.

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!

The cursor moves by itself during typing. It jumps to a position and I find myself typing in the wrong place.


I have found this is usually the small button in the middle of the keyboard (mouse button) I have tried some software to remove this problem but it did not on my laptop I ended up carefully removing the key board and disconnecting the two wires that go to the button My cursors kept moving across the screen

Keyboard not striking letters while in email function


Well you already proved that your keyboard is fine.

The problem is with yahoo. Try typing in other websites and see how that works.

Are you using yahoo "email classic" or the "all new yahoo email"? Try the classic and see if that works. Also, try updating your java:

Let me know how it goes.

Typing problem with keyboard


Here a suggestion, it may or may not be the problem! Sometimes the sensitivity of the touchpad might be too low and your hands inadvertently move the cursor. Also the touchpad has a builtin feature that prevents accidental contact(palm check) You can lower the sensitivity by going into control panel and open Mouse! Go to Device Settings and with the touchpad selected click on settings. There you'll see sensitivity and you can adjust the settings. You can also modify the palm check features right there! if you have any complications or if that's not it, kindly let me know! regards, babb
