Once I turn the computer on it only shows a blank screen. I am able to see the mouse arrow move but I am unable to get to my desktop or anything else. What do I do?

If you can see the mouse arrow, the display adapter is working. Try right clicking on the desktop. If you get a popup display, select the VIEW option, and another popup should appear next to it. Look at the bottom of the list and ensure that the "show desktop icons" selection is checked. If not, click on it and see if the icons return.

The only thing I can think of is reduce the resolution on your screen to fill it. Go to start menu, click on control panel, click on display, go to settings, "top right" take your mouse and go to screen resolution put mouse on arrow and move one notch to the left click apply, a window will appear at the top asking if you want to save these changes click okay and you are done.

The cursor jumps around on my E-105-S1402, suddenly moving to an entirely different place on the screen or moving back in a typed line so what I'm typing suddenly is inserted in a previuosly typed...

Most probably, you are involuntarily very lightly touching the surface of your touchpad with the base of your (usually right) thumb.
Some touchpad drivers have special settings to ignore very light strokes to avoid this effect - try your pointing device settings in the control panel.
If yours doesn't, you just have to remember to keep your hands at such an angle as to avoid contact with the touchpad. A soft wristrest may help, as it elevates your wrists a bit; gel-type wrist support is my favorite.
Good luck :)

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.

Jumping cursor

This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.
