It's the touchpad driver that's causing it. I suggest that you update the driver. You can search for the driver manually or use RadarSync to save your time.

Cursor keeps jumping


Hello,

I suggest that you scan your computer with RadarSync so that you can find the latest touchpad driver update for your computer. It's a driver related issue.

Cursor jumping


I have had this same issue. I realized one day that the palm of my hand was touching the track pad intermittently. Some of the HP laptops have super sensitive track pads. Mine actually has a button that disables it for typing. let me know, if this helps.

My cursor jumps around. Why?


(1) If you are using a laptop for typing text and your cursor is jumping around while you are working with a touch pad then it is a common defect in many Laptops. The solution to this is that you disable the touch pad by pressing down Fn key and selecting the appropriate Function key. You have to use a mouse.
(2) If you are using a desktop and the cursor is jumping then it is a very high probability that you have a virus in your computer. Take a updated virus cleaner/remover and scan/clean your system.

Cursor jumps around when I am typing on the Gateway NV52. I am typing on one line and it will jump to another line and keep typing


This is usually due to your wrist or thumb pads striking against the touch pad when you are typing. You can test this my disabling the touchpad and see if it clears up the problem.

You may be inadvertently touching the touch pad with the side of your hand or fingers as you type OR the touch pad itself is bad and needs replacement.

My Sony laptop cursor jumps around when typing


Yes, you are accidently hitting the touch pad.
Trust me--that is what is happening. Some laptops have VERY sensitive touch pads. If you can disable the touchpad and use a mouse, do it. (that is what I do, as I suffered the very same problem.)
On one customer, I had to actually open the computer and disconnect the pad.
If you can't disable it (many new computers have some sort of switch to disable it, even if it's a combo of the Fn key and one of the special function keys, practice better hand position--raise your seat or lower the laptop to keep your wrists from drooping and getting your thumb near the pad.

My cursor on my toshiba laptop keeps jumping when am typing


Ive seen this problem a few times, the problem is that your accidently or inadvertently touching the touch pad as you type. To fix this just disable the touchpad when your typing or put a piece of paper over it. To disable the touchpad it varies on different models but can normaly be done with a button near it, a FN and F1-8 key combo or through the touchpad driver on the task bar. Consult your manual for information on how to disable this.
