My cursor jumps around while I am typing often starting up in the middle of typed area oping r if I pause while ty it just happened see "oping" r "ty"????!!!!!!

This is usually due to your base of your thumbs touching the mouse pad while you are typing. Some touchpads will let you disabe the mouse pad while typing. Go to control panel-mouse- and look in the properties. There may also be an option to disable the touchpad when you plug a mouse in. Hope this helps

My Mouse track pad is pushing the mouse into the upper right corner of the screen. Do I need a new thumbpad? Is this an easy fix? Should I send it in?

Hi there, please open your touchpad settings and set the touch pad thumb pressing sense location. Make it center of touch pad & save the settings. Total sensible location is 5. 4 corner & 1 center. Just fixed center. Its will work proper. If not then go for new one.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Mouse keeps shifting the cursor to a different place in document

On touchpads if you touch the pad twice in quick succession it acts as a click and the cursor will move to the mouse pointer location. In mouse settings disable "tapping"

My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.

I have trouble when typing. The letters skip all over text.

Do you have a small button on the top side of the touch pad that will allow you to turn off the mouse? I bet that you are accidently touching the mouse pad with your thumb while you are typing, and this is causing your problem. I have the same problem if I do not turn off the touch pad on my laptop.

Good luck, and please rate me, OK?

Whilst typing the cursor moves to another part of the document

If your laptop has the option too you can turn off touch pad through a switch above the touch pad.

If you can't find this, or you don't have one, simply go to the run command and type in devmgmt.msc, ok.

Once in the device manager go "Mice and Other Pointing Devices"
look for your touchpad, right click on it and select disable.

Please note, some laptops wont let you disable to the touchpad, mine wont, but mine has an on and off key.

Touch Pad On
Touch Pad Off

This will keep the mouse from moving whole you type, but I suggest you get a regular mouse, especially if you have to disable the device with the Device manager.

When typing on toshiba the curser skip and actually moves

It might be that your palm is brushing across the intel touch pad (mouse pad) as you're typing?.. try holding down the function key (Fn) (on the lower left corner of the keyboard) while pressing F9 (this activates the "Toshiba Flash Cards Menu" and is a keyboard shortcut to toggle off/on the touch/mouse pad. You can turn it back on this way too. I almost always use a conventional USB mouse with my laptop for this reason and because it's faster than fiddling around with the pad, IMHO).

Touch pad failed.

Look along the top of the keyboard for an "f key" that shows a "touch pad" icon, IF you see it, press the "function key" (along the bottom of the keyboard) PLUS at the same time the "f key" (that you found along the top) and that should "toggle" the touch pad back on....
Also, IF you plug in a USB mouse that will allow you to move the cursor around--but the USB mouse doesn't fix your touch pad problem.
Hope this helps.

Mouse cursor moving by itself

i have latitude c610 and same problem happens with me too. i think that happens when i finish my brakfat and without cleaning my hands start using the touch pad. what happens according to me is that small particles of food(eg bread/dust particles) stuck in the corners or the body wall where the touch pad ends and keeps pressing the touchpad, thus causing the mouse to move to one direction. when i clean the corners and sides of the touchpad, it starts working ok !!
