Hi, Welcome to FixYa


It seems to be a problem with driver. Please try to update the drivers of both mouse and keyboard.

Also use mouse on a mouse pad, which is flat on surface. You also can trebleshoot the mouse and keyboard devices by going to control panel of the computer.

Thanks

On my laptop, the cursor jumps unpredictably to previously entered text.


The space bar 'contacts', internally are dirty or defective. You will probably need to replace the keyboard or seek from manufacturer a 'cleaning process ' for this keyboard.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ62. When typing anywhere, the cursor randomly jumps to another spot in the text and continue inserting text there. How do I correct this?


This typically happens when the typist's palms touch the touchpad, which the pad treats as a mouse click. See if the cursor is jumping to where the pointer is.
Most touchpads have a control panel (usually part of the MOUSE Control Panel) where you can reduce the sensitivity (or disable) the left click function from tapping the touchpad.

Laser is going bad in your dvd drive. You'll need to replace the drive. Look to see what programs are running when you boot into windows and disable them. If your cursor is still jumping then there is a problem with your mousepad and it would need to be replaced.

Jumping cursor on EEE pc.


You're hitting the touchpad with your palms as you type. Either lift your hands when you're typing or temporarily disable the touchpad.

Cursor jumps around


Does the cursor jump around when your hands are nowhere near the touchpad? The touchpads are heat and pressure sensitive. I personally have very warm (and sometimes sweaty) hands. I have this problem often when working on laptops. If I hover my hands over the pad, it causes the mouse to move. I've had to take a business card, put tape on one side of it, and use it as a flip-cover for the touchpad on most of my laptops. If the cursor moves around when you're nowhere near the laptop, then you may want to try disabling the pointing stick (if it has one). I've had several clients with laptops where the pointing stick mouse control go crazy and move and click on things.

Text jumps around on the screen


If you're still experiencing the problem (how frustrating if you still are !), I would suggest running a anti-spyware program such as SpyBot, or anti-malware program, such as Malwarebytes. Good luck.

Cursor jumps erratically


Most likely, your wrist is gently touching the touchpad, and your computer is interpreting it as a 'tap,' and it so happens your cursor was located several lines up.
Or if you use a separate mouse, is it on a wood or uneven surface? This will cause it to jump up those few lines and again, your wrist (or if you have big hands like I do, the bottom of your thumbs) will tap it.
