Cursor jumps into a previously-typed word or line and emails won't open


which email account ??

Acer laptop computers come with built-in touchpads to control cursor movement onscreen. Depending on the sensitivity and settings of the touchpad, it may register undesired motions as mouse controls, causing the cursor to jump erratically. The software drivers that Acer includes with its systems have sensitivity options that help alleviate this problem and ensure that only deliberate touchpad motions and taps cause the cursor to move.

Click on the Start menu and open the Control Panel. Choose an "Icon View" option from the "View by" dropdown menu, then click the "Mouse" icon. Navigate to the "Device Settings" tab and click on the Synaptics device in the list. If you have installed and use custom software other than a Synaptics application for controlling the touchpad, select it instead. Click the "Settings" button. Click the "+" symbol to expand the "Pointing" section in the left frame, and then the "Sensitivity" section. Click on "PalmCheck." If you have replaced the Synaptics drivers, the menu may use a different set of options. Click and drag the bar to the right, closer to the "Maximum" setting. An increased PalmCheck setting will help decrease cursor jumping due to accidental palm activations, a common occurrence when typing. Click on "Touch Sensitivity." Click and drag the bar to the right, closer to the "Heavy Touch" end. This will ensure light brushes by fingers or accidental activations by other objects will not cause the cursor to jump. Click "Apply" to test the settings, and "OK" when satisfied to save the changes and close the window.

Hey. I have an Acer One 532h which is driving me nuts as the cursor keeps on jumping while I'm typing. Sometimes my palms are just hovering above the touchpad and not even touching it with the cursor...


There's no real way to change the sensitivity of your mouse, aside from changing the speed. A possible solution would be to use a USB mouse and disable your touchpad. Hope this helps!

When I am typing the cursor will suddenly jump to a previous line.


open your touchpad properties (Fight click the touchpad icon in systray or Control Panel, Mouse, touchpad tab)
Depending on the driver you'll either have an option for Palm-Check or Touch-Check or similiar item. Enable it, if there is a sensitivity adjustment, try minimum or just above minimum. reboot
Palm-Check disables the touchpad while typing which should abate this issue.
Here is some Dell Information, it may apply to your Acer too:

How do I manage the mouse pad sensativity on my VIAO notebok computer


Hi,
You should be able to manage the touchpad (mouse pad) settings by going in to control panel --> Touchpad.(or "Dell Touchpad"). There you would find the touchpad settings where you could adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad.
Please let me know if you face issues finding the settings.
Thanks.

Acer aspire touchpad over sensitive


Hi,
Your laptop should have software pre-installed for your touchpad. This should probably be in the Control Panel. Once you find the software there should be options to change the sensitivity. Hope I helped.

Touch Pad


In the touchpad settings (Control Panel, Mouse) see if tap to click is enabled, if so uncheck and see if there is any difference. Also try booting in the safe mode, and see if that changes anything (F8 during boot to access safe mode) If no difference, then you'll likely need a new palmrest to fix the touchpad. If the touchpad works normally in the safe mode, try a new touchpad driver from support.dell.com

Mouse touchpad, keyboard, and usb drives will not work


One thing you can try (for the touchpad)

Acer have got a function key to turn it on and iff (i thought mine was broken for a year). Hold the function key, which is located bottom left of keyboard, and then press F7. It should be F7 anyway.

Hope that helps for your touchpad
