While typing on Acer Aspire the typing jumps around constantly...why?


Most of the time disabling the tapping for the touchpad solves the problem. Go to settings and disable the tapping for the touchpad, not the touchpad itself, just the tapping.

On-screen cursor jumps around while typing. When I am typing I end up typing in the middle of previous typed lines. I have a Averatec laptop running Windows XP)


Try using the function key to disable the touchpad. Most times they are sensitive and like to jump when you are typing as your wrists rub or pass over the touchpad.

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.

Text jumps around on the screen


If you're still experiencing the problem (how frustrating if you still are !), I would suggest running a anti-spyware program such as SpyBot, or anti-malware program, such as Malwarebytes. Good luck.

Wireless mouse?


Try disabling the mousepad on the laptop. sometimes this is what causes the problem. Another reason might be the mouse batteries. If they are running low you might experience problems like that.
