    The only thing I can think this could be is a calibration issue. What operating system are you running?

It is a fault with Lenovo laptops. My cursor jumps all the time, no matter what software I am using. It is NOT the 'sensitivity' of the touchpad, for my cursor jumps even when I am not typing, even if I don't touch the laptop! I can set the cursor to a certain point on a document and then, after about 30 seconds, it will just jump to another point, even if I am in another room.

    So what is the solution to fix the problem? I am also having the same problem.

  • dr06892004 Feb 21, 2011

    My friend is having the same exact problem. It is not the sensitivity of the touchpad. She called Lenovo tech support and they installed a new touchpad driver. I am not sure if the problem is fixed yet. Anyhow, they were very nice but they are aware that this is an issue.

    I had this problem for ever. After a lot of frustration and research, what I found was, this is common error for all kinds of Windows laptops that have a touchpad. I found a work around, which was to install a utility from Google code. This utility will lock down the cursor while typing and so will avoid the jumping around problem. This is a small utility that sits in the system tray and does not create any overload for the laptop and it does the job well.

Does this happen only when you're using Microsoft Word? I haven't used that program for quite some time but am certain you can adjust your cursor speed in that program.

Check out this post. It's for an Acer Aspire 5315, but probably the same or similar for yours. It's straight from Acer tech support.

SOURCE: moving cursor

Hi, sheila_sharp.

Please make sure you remove any dirt and/or fluid found on your touchpad. Even the tiniest grain of dirt may result in this. If you are using an external mouse, poor quality mice may cause this type of behavior.

SOURCE: Cursor jumps around

Hi,
I was having the same problem and what I did after doing some research was to roll back the driver that was installed to an earlier version (control panel/device manager/mouse/synaptics touchpad/driver/driver rollback) once that was done under control panel/mouse/device settings/settings i was finally able to adjust the sensitivity settings. This finally fixed the problem for me, I hope it helps you because it is a very frustrating problem.

How do i fix keystrokes that jump backward as I type?


Some Lenovo touchpads are over sensitive and they cause the cusor to slip or jump around. In Control Panel select Mouse or Touchpad. A box will open and you can locate touchpad Properties and adjust the sensitivity. Lenovo also has updated touchpad software/drivers for one or two of the most troublesome models. i was able to reduce the cursor jumping around quite a bit by adjusting the sensitivity, but i still don't think it's a good design.

Dell pc pointer jumps while and after typing


Make sure your fingers/palms aren't grazing the touchpad as you're typing. What's probably happening is your hands are too close to the touchpad, making the computer think you're using the mouse, and thus jumping the cursor around.

When i type in my MS word or replying mail using outlook, my cursor jumps to somewhere, actually it just happened several times when i type this message


On your touch pad exists a place that works like a scroller on the mouse (Usually the right part of pad with white lining). When you rest your wrists in this area, the cursor usually jumps in another place. I'm of course hoping that this is the problem and that your touch pad works fine. Try it and please tell me if this fails..

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.

Cursor jumps around


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.
