Cursor jumping around while typing text


You wouldn't have some live insect in your keyboard have you? I've seen Microwaves do strange stuff when infested with some tiny insects BUT I doubt it's the case with your machine. I am trying to recall a Keyboard key that I sometimes accidentally press when trying to create a document using Word, etc which does the same or similar to what you've described. It pees me of as I don't know which button I hit, it is one of the main reasons I avoid Word, Outlook, etc. Please let us know if solved, cheers.

Windows 8 samsung series 5 ultrabook, and the cursor jumps all over the place when I'm typing - anyone know a fix?


I have exactly the same problem as the person who originally posted the question. It is not a matter of your palms hitting the touch pad, or any other way of typing. I have actually tried typing one character at a time, and yet the cursor will jump randomly all over the page. Sometimes just a few letters, sometimes several paragraphs. It is infuriating, as, if you're a "look at your hands typer" you'll look up only to see your entire document make absolutely no sense whatsoever, and the auto save feature has, obviously, saved it this way.
SO, Has ANYONE found a REAL solution to this problem, OTHER than bringing in non-manufacturer software that we shouldn't have to bring in? There HAS to be a setting that we're missing, a strange configuration, a prayer that must be said, some type of rock garden constructed in honor of the Gods..... something.

Samsung labtop cursor jumps around when typing causing all kinds of problems including highlighting and erasing entire lines or sentences!


Press Fn & F10. This disables the touchpad. You will have to use arrows or a mouse to move the cursor. This helps when you are doing a lot of typing. Press the same keys to enable the touchpad when you are finished typing.

Writing a word and it jumps and has me finishing


That's because when you're typing you are touching the touchpad. You should disable it while typing from the touchpad application or from your keyboard (you have a key combination you can use to disable it or enable it eg. Fn+F7)

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.

I recently acquired this problem after having my computer serviced. I have been using it for over a year with no difficulty. I read somewhere that this is a microsoft problem, one of their service packages. The question is, which one?
