Hi,

I used to have the same problem on a couple of different laptops I had. The worst was my IBM. OK, here's how to disable it: First, I am sure you have another mouse plugged in to your computer so that you will still have mouse functionality...

Click on Start menu, go to control panel, click on mouse. Click the "hardware" tab at the top of the window, and select your built-in mouse. at the bottom of the window click the "properties button, and then in the window that opens, at the bottom you will see "device usage" over a drop-down menu. click on the drop down menu and select "do not use this device" and select ok. close out all windows. You have successfully disabled your mouse. keep theseinstructions in case you want to turn it back on in the future.

Take care.

Mark

    Too bad you lowered my score by giving me a 1. No worries. You have to disable it in the system bios then (very easy). If you do not know how to do that I could walk you through it even though you ruined my score... just kidding. But I will help you if you wish. I forgot that with a laptop you have to disable in the system bios because it is a built -in. How stupid of me to forget after all the laptops I have had and worked on. Oh well, cant change your score, but I can fix your problem.

Touch pad scroll is not working


The reason why your cursor is jumping all over the screen is because you are touching it by mistake with your thumb or hand somehow. You can turn the sensitivity down ans set two finger scroll (and other options) for your touchpad - go to control panel > mouse > device settings >


If you do not have device settings, you need to download the official drivers and software to enable all features. The driver you have is probably the default win 8 generic one. Let me know the model number of your laptop and I can help.

Acer laptop screen keeps rolling and I cannot type. cursor runs away to the top.


Hi,

Make sure that you are not touching the touch pad while typing. Reinstall or install an updated touchpad driver for your laptop to help control the cursor.

Hope this helps.

Compaq Presario CQ50 + over sensitive touch pad


Try the mouse settings in the control panel, also try uninstall any touchpad software and remove any touchpad software from running when the pc boots.
To do this either type msconfig into the run/search box or a program like cc cleaner under tools/startup

This issue could be due to corrupt Touchpad drivers or corrupt Touchpad sensitivity settings or corrupt BIOS settings. To isolate this issue, please perform the steps provided below: 1.

If you are using Windows Vista on your notebook then you can follow the steps listed below for decreasing the touch sensitivity of the touchpad: a. Click Start and type ?Mouse? without quotes in Search field. b. Click on Mouse from the results list. c. This will open d. Click on Tapping tab in the Mouse Properties window. e. Click the Touch Sensitivity Button to launch Touchpad settings. f. Move the slider to the desired setting (in between Light touch to Hard touch) This will adjust the Touch sensitivity of the touch pad. Now check for the issue. 3. If the issue persists, then update BIOS on your notebook. To update BIOS, go to the HP drivers download page for your notebook model and then download and install the latest available BIOS update.

When writing on my dell inspiron laptop, the cursor will suddenly change position and continue with my typing in another sentence - there is no particular position on the screen it goes to - what is up...


Hello.
If you don't touch the touchpad when typing, then it's a Windows problem. You need to download this program:
http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list
It's free. Basically, what it does is this: it disabled the touchpad when typing anything from the keyboard.
This problem is general to some laptops running Windows Vista or Seven. It's just like it would mistake the keys typed with touchpad instructions.

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.

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 skips lines while typing


My experience: cursor suddenly moving backward when i was typing, or moving somewhere else on the page. I would be typing and text suddenly would get highlighted. I followed someone's advice to disable the touch pad. Since I do have a mouse & key pad that was all i had to do.
HOW TO DISABLE THE TOUCHPAD FOR ACER 3680 AND OTHERS??? PRESS Fn +F7
Yep, it was that simple. At first I made sure i typed without my fingers or palms touching or near the touchpad. I noticed it seemed to stop or happen less. Soon as I disabled the touch pad all is back to normal. Yet I spent hrs trying to find out how and there were all these posts by people suggesting downloads and other more complicated things etc..
