Know what you mean.

This is why I use a normal mouse.

However if you open Control Panel, look for MOUSE or maybe POINTING DEVICES.

In there SHOULD be an adjustment for sensitivity.

Probably SYNAPTIC software controlling it.

These problems can be fixed by simply adjusting the touchpad's sensitivity settings.
Click the "Start" button and double-click "Control Panel."
Double-click "Hardware & Sound" and choose "Mouse" to open the mouse properties box.

Choose the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight "Synaptic Touchpad" in the Devices box by clicking on it. Click the "Settings" button underneath the Devices box.
Choose "Sensitivity" in the properties settings box.
Click "PalmCheck" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to accidental brushes against the pad while typing, which causes the cursor to move.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.

Click "Touch Sensitivity" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to tapping.

My laptop has a black screen with a blinking cursor


Blinking Cursor b> Laptops, especially models with a touchpad, occasionally experience issues with a skipping cursor. The cursor on the screen may skip or jump when you are using it or even when you are just typing and not actually using the cursor. This can be especially annoying when playing games or typing. Adjusting the sensitivity of your touchpad may remedy the problem.

Close all application windows and restart the laptop. This will shut down any background processes that might be affecting your cursor. Rebooting often remedies cursor skipping problems. Run antivirus software to confirm that your misbehaving cursor is not caused by malware. If the cursor has changed to an unfamiliar shape without you initiating the change, your system could be infected by a virus or you might have installed unstable software. Run an antivirus scan and remove suspicious files and programs from your laptop. Adjust your touchpad's settings. In Windows, open "Control Panel," click on "Mouse" and then click "Tapping." On a Mac, access "Trackpad" and "System Preferences." Lower the tracking speed or sensitivity so that if you are accidentally touching the touchpad while typing, you are less likely to cause the cursor to skip. Save your new settings.

Cursor jumps around


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 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.

Cursor jumps in sentence when typing


Hi Shirley

JUMPING LAPTOP MOUSE CURSOR

This is a problem that affects certain laptops. The sensitivity of the touchpad is the cause of the problem. As you type, your wrists and the lower part of the palm of your hands either brush or pass very close to the touchpad, activating it and causing the cursor to jump. Static electricity building up in the typist's body and passing to the touchpad can also contribute to this effect.

The solution, if the problem is very bad with your laptop, is to use a comfortable Wrist Rest that raises the palm and wrist high enough so that typing is possible and comfortable but unintended contact with the touchpad is avoided. See an example below.

I hope this helps.

Cursor does not move when running my finger over the touch pad. Thank You Bill


1. Adjust the touchpad sensitivity from the control panel. Perhaps lessening the sensitivity will solve the problem. In Windows OS go to your control panel, and select hardware and sound. Then click "mouse," and when the new window pops up select the settings tab. From there you can adjust the sensitivity. If your mouse came with its own software you may be able to adjust the settings from the system panel. Hover your mouse over the icons near the system clock, and look for an icon that is titled touchpad, or mouse. You can click this icon and adjust settings.
2. Clean the touchpad with rubbing alcohol in case there is a grease buildup on the touchpad. This is the most common cause for touchpad failure.
3. Remove the touchpad drivers from device manager and reinstall. Sometimes there can be driver errors that are preventing the touchpad from working. Device manager can be accessed via control panel in Windows systems.
4. Replace the touchpad if none of these steps work. Prices can range from $15 to $50 plus labor rates. It is best to let a computer professional change this since major disassembly is required to remove and replace the touchpad, and many fragile components will be exposed during this process.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

Cursor arbitrarly jumps to wherever it may be sitting on the screen. makes typing very difficult


This is an issue with many laptop users because the touchpad is so sensitive that while typing the cursor can be moved when the hand comes into slight contact with the touchpad. You can go into the properties of the touchpad and try reducing the sensitivity and see if that helps or disable the touchpad in the device manager and use a usb mouse.

My cursor jumps while I'm typing


Go into the control panel and then the keyboard icon. You can control the speed in there such as the repeat rate, repeat delay, and cursor blink rate.

Also go into the mouse icon in the control panel and you can control the speed and such in there to since thats worth a shot.
