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.

How do i fix keystrokes that jump backward as I type?


Some Lenovo touchpads are over sensitive and they cause the cusor to slip or jump around. In Control Panel select Mouse or Touchpad. A box will open and you can locate touchpad Properties and adjust the sensitivity. Lenovo also has updated touchpad software/drivers for one or two of the most troublesome models. i was able to reduce the cursor jumping around quite a bit by adjusting the sensitivity, but i still don't think it's a good design.

Cursor jump while typing


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.

What to do when cursor keeps jumping


Many laptops have a settings window for the touchpad/mouse (look in the Control Panel); after getting this laptop I had the same problem. I went into the options and checked the box that said something like "Disable Touchpad when Typing." Look for an option like that in your touchpad settings.

Samsung labtop cursor jumps around when typing causing all kinds of problems including highlighting and erasing entire lines or sentences!


Press Fn & F10. This disables the touchpad. You will have to use arrows or a mouse to move the cursor. This helps when you are doing a lot of typing. Press the same keys to enable the touchpad when you are finished typing.

My cursor jumps back to the beginning when i'm trying to type. i'm constantly having to backspace and correct and reset my cursor. any suggestions?


Disable your touchpad if you consistently have this problem.

When you are typing something, and you suddenly touch the touchpad (tapping this touchpad moves the cursor) then your cursor will suddenly change position which then mess up your typing.

If you don'r have an external mouse connected, better be careful not to touch the touchpad. If you have an external mouse, better disable this touchpad.

On-screen cursor jumps around while typing. When I am typing I end up typing in the middle of previous typed lines. I have a Averatec laptop running Windows XP)


Try using the function key to disable the touchpad. Most times they are sensitive and like to jump when you are typing as your wrists rub or pass over the touchpad.

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.

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.

Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
