Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook
For some reason, right in the middle of typing something, my satellite will suddenly be typing in another place on the page, often in the middle of a sentence I've already typed, causing all kinds of confusion for me. I have to constantly watch the screen even when typing in name and addie info at a website because my computer will erase sentences, stop typing, or move the cursor. It seems to coincide with processor activity. I'd really like to be able to type nonstop for more than a few minutes without my computer deciding that it wants to put the cursor somewhere else, or even nowhere else.
To resolve this issue please follow the steps below:-
1) Locate the picture icon called "Synaptics Touchpad" or "Pointing Device" that is located next to the digital time (usually in the bottom right hand side of the screen).
2) Click on the icon with the right-hand mouse clicker and select the option: MOUSE PROPERTIES in the small sub-menu that pops up.
3) You should now see a new window dominating the screen with several options and tabs along the top. Select the "Tapping" tab listed there with the left-hand mouse clicker.
4) When Tapping Selected the menu window will change presenting some new options. There should be an option near the bottom of the menu called "Tap off when typing" Click the box next to this menu option, success will bring up a little tick in the box clicked on.
5) To the right of the "Tap off when typing" option there should be a new sliding controller available with two options on either end (Short ---- Long) and a triangular shaped slider button in the middle of the two. The triangular shaped button needs to be moved to approximately three-quarters to the right (towards "long").
6) Once above step has been completed left click select the "Apply" button on the bottom right hand side of the menu, and then click "Ok" to confirm changes.
Hope this solves your problem :0)

Are you bumping the touch pad while typing?

I had this same problem and its enough to drive you batty. Solved it by adjusting the touchpad in the mouse control panel. Decrease the sensitivity of the touchpad to light or all the way light.
If you don't have an option for the touchpad in the control panel, dowload the latest software for it at:

Try uninstalling the touch pad drivers and reinstall them again. Go to your computer's download page to re-download the drivers
