Try taking a dryer sheet (like Bounce) and wiping the touch pad with it.
Typically, when the cursor jumps like that, the cause is static electricity. It may be coming from your clothing, your desk or your floor. The dryer sheet eliminates static electricity.

Some techs wear anti-static wrist bands to avoid a problem like yours.
Good luck!

When typing, cursor jumps backward several spaces


Sounds like your mousepad is ghosting. This means it thinks you're tapping the mousepad as you type, which will make it type exactly where you nlast moved the curser to. First, try cleaning the pad thoroughly with a damp tissue, and dry it well... if that doesn't solve it, you could try adjusting the mousepad sensitivity controls on the control panel. Hope that helps.

How to Fix Windows 7 cursor jumps backward while typing Outlook messages.


Well, technically it is not moving it backwards, it is moving the cursor to wherever the 'pointer' is.
You need to STOP resting your palm(s) on the Touchpad.

When you touch it, it will move the cursor to wherever the 'pointer' is....which is likely where you started typing.

You can also turn-off the touch-pad if you will be doing lots of typing. This is done by pressing [Fn] and [F3].

Think you might have (and it's very easy to do when you're typing) touched the touchpad as you're typing- which was probably why the cursor got repositioned. Without knowing the features on your ASUS, I'd look for Windows (assuming it's the OS) Control Panel and Mouse Controls - there usually is something that can be adjusted as to what qualifies as a tap (say, a really light tap versus a hard tap) and fiddle with it. You should be able to get it to work to your liking.

Hi! I think youre probably having a jumping cursor where the cursor jumps from one place to another while typing an email or something. You may got to control panel - hardware - mouse then look for the check box that you can tick on that says "Tap off while typing" and this should fix the problem. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com!

I am having a problem when I type and the cursor moving


This happens when your hands get to close to the palmrest and your wrists are actually causing the cursor to jump to another spot. Go to the control panel > mouse> settings > highlight the touchpad listed and select the settings button. Look through the entries and there is a setting for palmrest sensitivity. Turn down the sensitivity so your hands and wrists don't trigger a cursor movement. The hardware and drivers are fine, this is a setting adjustment.
