Touch pad isstP Pavilion cursor starts drifting uncontrollably

I'm running into touchpad problems with my HP Pavilion dv41212i whenever I have the battery charger plugged into the laptop. When plugged in, the cursor starts drifting uncontrollably and automatically clicks the screen without me lifting my finger from the touchpad. If I unplug the power plug and run on battery, the touchpad works perfectly. Anyone know how I can solve this annoying issue with the touchpad? Basically the touchpad is useless when power is plugged in. I'm running Vista 64-bit with all the latest touchpad drivers and firmware.

When I tap on the touch pad on a HP Pavilion dv7 cursor jumps


The touchpad is installed on HP notebook PCs.
You can "tap" and "double tap" your touchpad with your finger, and interact with the operating system in exactly the same way as clicking and double clicking on your mouse.
When using touchpad on your notebook PC, the cursor may jump, flicker, or double-click by itself.

Follow the recommendations in that HP document, or "disable" the TouchPad, if you don't like what it does.

Asus touch pad too sensitive


There should be settings in the touch pad software on your machine or in the task bar that you can directly access to change all manner of personal idiosyncrasies related to HID. (Human interface device) Try also going into the control panel and looking for input devices, mouse, touchpad and adjusting the settings from within there.

My hp g60 cursor doesent move at all.


If the cursor doesn't move when using the touchpad, make sure the touchpad is turned on. There is a button right above the touchpad with five lit-up dots above it. If the dots are white, the touchpad is enabled -- if they are orange, the touchpad is turned off.

Hope that solves your problem!
