My touchpad on my laptop controls my cursor perfectly fine. But out of the blue it starts automaticlly clicking whatever the cursor is on and hardly moves around the screen, when i move my finger to move it, it moves slightly. This problem is solved as soon as i take my charger wire out of the laptop? It doesnt do it then. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!

Cursor problem


Disabling the touchpad on a Dell Inspiron can be useful when typing for long periods of time, or using an external mouse. Bumping or tapping the touchpad while typing can cause cursor jumping and unwanted results. Use the touchpad software to enable or disable touchpad controls. Download the driver for your touchpad at the Dell Support website.

Click on the "Touchpad" icon in the task bar. If the icon doesn't appear, you can download and install the driver for the touchpad from the Dell website, or choose "Start" and "Control Panel." Choose "Device Select" on the touchpad menu, or choose "Mouse" in the "Control Panel" menu and "Device Select." Click "Disable" under "Touchpad" to turn off the touchpad, or click "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick When a USB Mouse is Connected."

I want to turn off the touchpad


HP and Compaq Presario laptop computers are made by the same company, so the hardware on certain models of each brand might be nearly identical. Many newer laptops, for example, use identical technology to control the touchpad, which in turn controls your mouse cursor. If you want to disable this touchpad use the software already installed on your PC.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Click the "Device Settings" tab. Click on the listing for the HP touchpad to highlight it. Click the "Disable" button to disable the HP touchpad on your Compaq Presario laptop computer.

The cursor jumps from line or field on its own...I could typing away and before I know it, the cursor has moved to another field or to the middle of another word! real pain in the ****


You will probably want to adjust the pressure sensitivity on your laptop's touch pad to alleviate this problem. If you have Windows, enter the control panel from the start menu.

1. START > Control Panel
2. Find Mouse or Pointing Devices.
3. Enter the Pointing Devices Control Panel.
Things can vary a bit in this section. So you should look for anything that deals with Pressure settings or Pointing Settings. One setting should be labeled "Touch Sensitivity." This setting controls how much pressure is required on the touch pad.
-If you move the setting lower (or move the slider to the left) this decreases the sensitivity. It is harder to accidently move the cursor if you brush the touchpad while typing.
-If you move the setting higher (or move the slider to the right) this increases the sensitivity. It is easier to accidently move the cursor if you brush the touchpad while typing.
(Note that in some configurations, these are opposite - left to increase senstivity and right to decrease sensitivity).

Depending on your laptop there may also be a setting labeled Touchpad Pressure. It's a setting that resgisters if you are accidently leaning on the touch pad. It's designed to reduce the chance of accidental clicks or motions. This setting is generally controlled the same way the Touchpad Sensitivity setting is controlled, through left-right sliders. I've found that keeping the touchpad sensitivity low makes it easier to avoid accidental cursor motions. I also keep the Pressure setting relatively high as well. One thing you'll note that if you adjust these settings to far into one extreme or the other, you will have difficulty using your touchpad. Fine tune these two setting until you achieve the results you want.

Lately my touchpad welll cursor has been really playing up like when i rest the laptop on my laptop its fine but then when i rest the laptop on my sofa or bed the cursor starts to really play up and clicks...


Hi. I think the problem for your touchpad is just some settings on it, if your using the Synaptics driver for your touchpad you can check the option on the synaptics setting where you can disable your touchpad while you are typing or doing something else on your keyboard. If you could not find this options or settings on your laptop you could just download a software that does the same thing, disable your touchpad while you are typing so that it would not go erratic. here is the link http://tinyurl.com/nte6wu, click on this link it will redirect you to a website where you can download the software, but that is only if could not find the option on your touchpad settings, by the way try also your control panel and look for the mouse icon then for your touchpad settings. Hope this helps

When using the touchpad the cursor always double clicks


For that go to start menu->control panel->folder optitions.
Then you can see first general tab settings.
Make sure in "clci kitems as follows" the option button for "double click to open item " is enable.
Then apply and ok.
If still face same issue then uninstall touchpad driver and reinstall driver again then it works fine.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Acer Vista Laptop and cursor nightmare!!


Hi -
I've been having the same problem and it is MAJORLY annoying to be typing along, and have the cursor reappear on another line!

I had a heck of a time finding the place to disable the touchpad, since we use a USB mouse with the laptop. Turns out, someone else helped me find a simple way - hold down the Fn key (next to the left side CNTRL key), and hit F7. That toggles the touchpad off/on easily!

Also suggested by someone else, some mice can cause erratice behavior with Acer laptops, so perhaps try another mouse?

So far, I've been typing this response AFTER disabling the touchpad, and the cursor has not jumped around at all.

Good luck! : )
