How do you stop the cursor from jumping on an elitebook folio 9470m


go to control panel / mouse to open the mouse properties window. along the top of the window should be several tabs. select the tab for touchpad or maybe advanced properties. this tab allows you to adjust the touch sensitivity of the mousepad, momentum, and other properties. adjusting to make it less sensitive may reduce the tendency of the cursor to jump or move on its own. failing that, go for an external mouse!

Cursor hopping backwards


One of the innovative features about laptops is the built-in trackpad in lieu of a standard computer mouse. This device eliminates the need to have a mouse dangling from your PC as you tote it from palce to place. Unfortunately, this feature can also wreak havoc on word processing, as the text cursor will jump around the document if the trackpad is accidentally grazed during typing. Fortunately, this is a problem that is simple to correct for both PCs and Macs.

Click on the "Start" icon. Select "Control Panel," then select "Hardware and Sound." Select "Mouse," then select "Device Settings." Select "Settings." Under this tab select the option for "Tapping." This will let you turn off the feature that moves the cursor when you tap the touchpad. Stopping Cursor Jumping for Macintosh Select "System Preferences." Select "Trackpad." Uncheck the box next to "Clicking." This will disable the tapping feature.

My dell ins iron cursor is frozen. All solutions I read talk about clicking on various items in control panel - how can I do that when cursor will not move?


To be able to click on control panel options when your cursor does not move would require an EXTERNAL mouse. On notebook PCs, you will need a USB mouse.
It's a;so possible to use just the keyboard by pressing TAB and the arrow keys to switch between icons but is very difficult. USB mouse is the way to go. Most likely, you will have to disconnect the USB mouse at some point during troubleshooting to test the touchpad.

Cursor is jumping all over the screen before you can point at what you need - Dell D620 - Windows xp pro


Firstly try a different mouse to find out if the mouse is the issue - If so a new mouse is probably needed (assuming you cleaned the trackball/laser - video instructions can be found below)
If the mouse is not the issue, then enter mouse settings on Windows XP, and try adjusting the sensitivity etc. This can be done by going to Start -> Control Panel -> Mouse and adjusting "Pointer Options"
If this fails, try downloading drivers for the mouse (assuming it is optical).

Cursor jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:
  1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
  2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
    1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
    3. Click Mouse.
    4. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab. (Figure 1)

      Figure 1: Pointer Speed
    5. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
  3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.
