I was having a similar issue with my laptop. What I found was while I was typing, my thumbs were close enough to the "Touch Pad" to move the curser. You can decrease the sensitivity or disable the touch pad (which I do when the external mouse is connected) Let me know if this helps.

Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

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.

SOURCE: Cursor jumps around

If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

  1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
  2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
    1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
    3. Click Mouse.
    4. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab. (Figure 1)

      Figure 1: Pointer Speed
    5. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
  3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

I have suggested in the past that people with this type of problem download Intellipoint Mouse software, from Microsoft.

It's a free download, and so far, I have had a good rate of this solution working.

Here is the download page from Microsoft.com,

There's one possibility that may or may not be a fix... interference from cordless phones can make your cursor do very strange things. If there's a cordless phone around, move it away from the laptop and see if that helps. Cleaning your touchpad with a damp cloth may also help.. just a speck of dirt or dust can throw things off. You might try adjusting the sensitivity on your touchpad (through control panel). If these suggestions don't at least help, try Gateway's support site. Good luck.

How to stop cursor from jumping all over the page while typing I cannot use my touchpad tools since it is uninstalled.


Go to the link below and click on the model you own... Then scroll down to the TouchPad driver and download the one for the Synaptics version. Once it's downloaded unzip it. When unzipped go into the folder it created and double click on setup.exe and follow the instructions.

While typing on my laptop, my cursor jumps to other places on the page, then types where the cursor has moved to . I don't use a mouse.


Hi,
I guess the 'other places of the pages' is mostly the beginning of the line? It usually happens when the key stroke is not proper while using combination keys. Or also it happens when if you dont release a key when you press the next in between your speedy typings.

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
