Acer Aspire keyboard

I just bought an Acer Aspire laptop 5720. I will be typing along and suddenly the cursor backs up and starts somewhere back in the sentence I already typed. It is so annoying. Is there a setting for this not to happen. Help!

    We have the same keyboard issue with an Aspire 5720. The cursor jumps back making editing a document a pain. Now that I see it is common - maybe Acer should fix it.

    Yes we have a 5720 with the same issue. Maybe Acer should fix it since it is common.

I puzzled over this for months, and then discovered it was because my thumb, normally attached to a mouse, was touching the board. Easy smeazy. Either wait until your habits can change, and not touch the touchpat with your thumb, or get a plug-in mouse.

Keyboard functions I will be typing away and all of a sudden the cursor will jump back into another space where there is a word previously typed. Is there away to get this to stop doing that.


This can happen if we are placing the hand over the touchpad while typing.. But if you are not placing the hand on the touchpad and while typing if you face this issue..
Unistall the touchpad,keyboard drivers that is already present in the device manager
Install a fresh copy from the acer website(www.support.acer.com) - the issue will be fixed

The cursor moves by itself during typing. It jumps to a position and I find myself typing in the wrong place.


I have found this is usually the small button in the middle of the keyboard (mouse button) I have tried some software to remove this problem but it did not on my laptop I ended up carefully removing the key board and disconnecting the two wires that go to the button My cursors kept moving across the screen

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..
