You should be able to disable the pad within the mouse settings in the control panel. You can also modify the sensitivity in the same place.

By the specs your machine should have a Synaptics touchpad which adds a separate tab at the end of the mouse settings (device settings)...

Text writing is weird. I write and part of the word appears a sentence away?


Ha, it's because your wrist or thumb is touching the mousepad occasionally - some are more sensitive than others.

Try turning the mousepad off while typing, sometimes there is a button at the mousepad area, others it's an Alt-Function key. Look for a symbol on the F-keys that look like a finger touching a square or mousepad. This, and the Alt key combination will shut it off and then back on again when you select them.
An external or USB keyboard and mouse works great for me.

I am typing off the laptop keyboard itself and as I am typing it jumps back into a previous sentence or previous paragraph


Most likely culprit:

Do you have the finger touch-pad turned on?
Chances are you're brushing up against that, high static will increase the likely hood.
I don't even have to touch mine.
If you have a button to turn it off - great! Turn it off while you're typing.
I've seen some that lack this feature. I'm not sure if it can be disabled in the task bar; or if you'd need to disable the device through the hardware/device manager.
Another option is to just make sure your hands/wrists are elevated -- They really should be anyway to avoid carpal tunnel.

Other possiblilities:
Hitting the: home, pg up, pg dn, and/or end keys -- Arrow keys as well, will do it.
Some sort of software malfunction. -Perhaps, glitch or compatability issue.
Virus/someone's accessing your computer - Usually they don't just play around with your sentences though. ;-)
Broken keyboard.


Hope this helps!

Our hp pavilion 1000 mouse pad stopped working. What could it be?


The mouse pad can be turned off or on in the control panel under mouse options. If it is turned on and your still not getting any response then try and remove the last hardware change if there was any in the past 48 hours prior to the touch pad going off. Also check in system setting's to ensure there are no error codes for the mousepad. Try that and get back to me.

I find it useful. A bit like the thumbwheel on an IBM mouse.
Anyway, I would go into the touchpad settings within the device manager and switch it off if you want to.

Disable mousepad


hi,
try the Fn+F7 combo, the F7 is usually assigned to the touchpad and is indicated by an icon that's relevant.

This works on most notebooks to turn on or off the touchpad.

. Press F2 or F10 (it varies) to enter your bios setup screens. In these pages is a setting for touch pad only, mouse only or touch pad and mouse or serial. You might check that.

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.

Mouse pad wont work after water spill


not difficult..with right tools and patience..the touchpad is part of the upper assembly, and requires that the bottom be removed. When I do this, it takes around an hour.

got backup?
