Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Notebook

Curser jumps while typing

I am a teacher with a Satellite pro A200. There a lot of us with the same computer and we all seem to be frustrated with the same problem. While I am typing, the cursur jumps to different places and the writing then reads as gobble - de- gook! We have tried lowering the sensitivity of the mousepad but this has not made ajot of difference. I swear it changes if i just wave my hand over the mouse and make no contact at all!

    I can fing touchpad on/off facility but I am concerned that if I select off I then won't be able to select anything afterwards because I don't use an external mouse! Can't see anything that says synaptics!

    How do I establish whether it is electrical interference or not?

    Could it be due to some eletrical/magnetical interference?

    It could be due to some program conflictions. Sometimes one program will allow something and another will not so it messes up everything.

Hi there.
The best thing to do is to uninstall the touchpad drivers, you can do this by going to the control panel look for add remove programs or programs and features, in that window look in the list for "synaptics" and uninstall it.
That should clear up the problem, if you cannot find synaptics in the add remove programs please post back.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

    It has nothing to do with magnetic or electrical interference, many touchpads are very sensitive, you can blow on them and they move the cursor and send it into dicky fits. touchpads like this are a pain and your better off removing the drivers for it.
    It will not stop the touchpad from working (contrary to popular belief) but it will turn the touchpad into a normal mouse just like any other mouse you plug in.

Have you found the answer yet? I don't know that particular laptop but if you use the touchpad, it happened to me because even the lightest brush against the surface with a stray finger would make the cursor jump all over and do the same quite annoying thing as you described.
