As your PC is new, it's likely you have an optical mouse. Sometimes they are unable to sense movement on certain surfaces (glass, pure white paper etc). Try putting something under it - magazines or newsprint normally works well.

SOURCE: Can move the mouse but not clikc with the touchpad

Hi,

if you installed an external mouse, it would over-ride the touchpad.
try removing the external mouse, and tap the touchpad twice as if you were double clicking it.
also you could try re-installing the touchpad device driver, usually synoptics or similar.

I faced the same problem with my laptop and the fault was with the power adapter. I noticed that the cursor moved randomally only when the power adapter was plugged in. I got the adapter replaced and it is working fine since then.

Sounds like your driver is corrupt, go to windows update and after it scans choose custom install, look at available updates and look for the hardware updates, there you should see your touchpad listed. Choose the drivers you would like update and click install. Reboot when finished.

Looks like your mouse is causing the trouble. Try a different mouse if you have one lying around. Or to check, unplug the mouse when that starts to happen and check if the problem is resolved immediately. If it does, well, time to get a new mouse.

My touchpad jumps around or the arrow won't move


Keep the palms of your hands away from your touchpad.
Just being "close" to the touchpad is enough to move the mouse-pointer.

The mouse keeps jumping can i fix that?


Reinstall the drivers and try using it on a matt surface. If you got any utility software with the mouse, do install it. If issue persist, you should replace it.

Cursor on my keypad jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.

2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.

a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.

c. Click Mouse.

d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.

e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.

f. Click OK.

g. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.

3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.

5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

I have a brand new acer pc and the mouse keeps jumping all over the place


The mouse settings may be set to fast. Goto Start>Control Panel. Find the Mouse and check the settings in the tab Pointer Options. Set it to a slower speed to see if that helps.
