I tried updating drivers, no help. I decided my particular wild mouse was a stick pointer hardware problem. Since I do not use the stick I decided to disconnect it electrically.

Here is what I did to tame the wild mouse cursor. Observe static protection practices. Basically touch table, tools and laptop at the same time and do not rub feet or anything. This procedure electrically isolates the stick pointer making it inoperative and renders it unable to interfere with the touchpad/mouse function. Read instructions completely prior to performing service.

1. Power down laptop.
2. Remove battery and wait five minutes.
3. Open laptop and lay screen all the way flat.
4. Find the 1/4 inch depression at top right of the base (the part that has the keyboard). With a small pry tool lift the plastic strip that houses the power, hard drive and battery status indicator and covers the top part of the case that has the power and sound buttons. Once loose on the right side, lift from right to lift to remove.
5. Remove two small screws that secure the keyboard.
6. Lift top of keyboard and gently flex the keyboard up in the center to dislodge from under the sides of the case.
7. Lift keyboard forward to dislodge from under the palm rest.
8. Lift connector straight up.
9. Insert an approximately 3/8 inch by 3/8 inch piece of plastic grocery bag over the contacts in the center of the right side of the connector on the main board. Position plastic such that it overhangs the side of the connector such that when the connector is reconnected it will remain in place and prevent electrical contact with the narrow stick pointer flex ribbon part of the connector.
10. Insert connector.
11. Reverse process to reassemble, taking care to insert keyboard under palm rest and flexing up in the center to insert under sides of case.

This can be caused by fault in the touchpad or motherboard connector. Easiest fix is to disable the mouse in the touchpad software and use a USB mouse.

Sounds like their might be some dirt underneath the surface of the trackpad exerting pressure causing it to move. Try turning down the sensitivity, do this under mouse in Control Panel.

Tapping on gateway nv 53 trackpad not working


This just happened on my HP2730P. I always used the click on the touchpad, plus used the right click button at the bottom. Yesterday it just decided to stop working and went haywier...it started doing the selecting and dragging while I was moving the mouse around and my left click stopped working. Obviously my enable tap click was already on cuz I used it all the time.

My solution was disabling the buttons under the "buttons" tab. Then my mousepad tap started working again, I regained function in the scrollbar on the mousepad again, and if I need to right click I can use the point stick buttons right above the pad.

OR

Does it start working when you reboot? If so, try changing the "Touchpad Sensitivity" option :)

My cursor moves as i type what can i do


You seem to be brushing against the touch pad while you're typing. You need to adjust the sensitivity of that touch pad:
Click on the "Start" icon in the lower left corner of the screen. Select "Control Panel." Next select "Mouse" under "Hardware and Sound." You can also left-click the touchpad while the cursor is anywhere on the desktop. From that screen, choose "Mouse Pointers." Select the "Buttons" tab at the top of the dialog box that opens. This shows the type of touchpad device installed on your laptop. Set the touchpad for right or left-handed use from this dialog box. You can adjust the double click speed of your computer as well. When you finish making any changes, click "Apply." Pick the "Device Settings" tab from the dialog box now. You can see the touchpad for your Vista machine highlighted on this screen. Select "Settings." Read the information provided in the next dialog box. It gives you options for tapping your touchpad, using the buttons, scrolling, pointer motion and sensitivity. Make any changes you want from the various topics. When you make a change, click "Apply." Click "OK" when you finish making all your changes. Do some work on your computer for a while. If the touchpad is still too sensitive, return to the "Mouse" menu and continue to adjust the settings until you get them just the way you want them.

Dell d600 mouse pointer jumps into corners if working on documents etc.; maybe if the system stores data in the cache or ram, the cursor wether jumps into the left down corner or moves slowly in directon...


What the issue is, is the eraser head mouse in the enter of the keyboard. When you type, it's putting uneccessary pressure on it, and it makes the pointer move. The only solution I know for this is to get the updated ALPS driver for the mouse, and disable the eraserhead (The updated driver gives you an option to do this), thereby using only the touchpad mouse.
