Your thumbs may be getting too close to the the mousepad
while you're typing. Try holding them further away. Worst case,
you may have a dirty or defective keyboard. Try cleaning under
the keys.

SOURCE: Mouse cursor jumping uncontrollably all over screen.

Your touch pad drivers need to be installed. Power off the laptop. Install an external mouse, power back on and install drivers. When finished, power down, remove the external mouse and reboot.

SOURCE: jumping cursor whilst typing on an acer aspire 5315

Is the touchpad active?
It is common that users accidently touches the touchpad while writing and this causes the cursor to "jump"...
Another possibility is that the "TAB" key is jammed...

SOURCE: I have an 2008 Dell Vostro 1510. Warranty is up.

go to control panel, open Mouse Properties, touchpad tab
There you will have options for either TouchCheck, Or PalmCheck, enable and if there is an adjustment slider, have it mostly to the left (This disables the touchpad while typing, then when you stop typing, it will respond again)
Also if there is an option for Draglock, disable it

Dell pc pointer jumps while and after typing


Make sure your fingers/palms aren't grazing the touchpad as you're typing. What's probably happening is your hands are too close to the touchpad, making the computer think you're using the mouse, and thus jumping the cursor around.

When i type in my MS word or replying mail using outlook, my cursor jumps to somewhere, actually it just happened several times when i type this message


On your touch pad exists a place that works like a scroller on the mouse (Usually the right part of pad with white lining). When you rest your wrists in this area, the cursor usually jumps in another place. I'm of course hoping that this is the problem and that your touch pad works fine. Try it and please tell me if this fails..

Hi! I think youre probably having a jumping cursor where the cursor jumps from one place to another while typing an email or something. You may got to control panel - hardware - mouse then look for the check box that you can tick on that says "Tap off while typing" and this should fix the problem. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com!

I thought the problem was fixed but I spoke up to quick.

The problem with the cursor jumping to another line, continues.

The $9.95 I payed was for not.

I can't type this without the cursor going to another line I
have already typed.
