Hi,
just clean the lens of the mouse, if its a optical mouse.
If you have a rollerball-style mouse , clean the rollerball and rollers.
If even thats not working, then shut down the pc, unplug the mouse and connect it back again, and start the PC. This will work.

Thank You,
Manish Shirsikar

your palm might be hitting the touchpad causing your mouse cursor to move and jump around... try to type with only your fingers hitting the keys and the back of your hand raised and not hitting any part of your laptop... hope this helps....

Cursor jumps around when I touch the mouse pad/


Maybe try updating the drivers for the touchpad or adjusting the settings in the control panel.

You can update drivers for the touchpad in the device manager.

Cursor continually jumps all over when trying to type


Touch pad mouse.
This unit has a "seamless touchpad with four-way integrated scroll button".
Yours is probably faulty, causing the cursor to be random.
Try disabling it and connecting a USB mouse.

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

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.
