Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard
I have an Acer Aspire 5720 and I constantly seem to have the cursor move while I am typing - I am suddenly typing in a place I don't want to be. I think the laptop keyboard is at fault, as I can type much better with a regular keyboard hooked into the laptop
Hi, I have an Aspire 5920 which I bought off my cousin, and the keyboard jumped all over the place. The TouchFree solution has now cured it, and without it I wouldn't be typing this thank you, as everything I typed would take 6 times as long 'cos I'd have to correct it constantly.
Thank you, Guest Nov 13 2008. I'd become so frustrated with it I almost went and bought an external keyboard. I will forward this onto my uncle who also has the same problem. V. happy :-) :-)

The touch freeze fix from microsft seemed to work for my cursor jumping issues. Thanks for the link for this fix. Makes typing on this laptop easy and enjoyable again.

Hi...My typing speed has slowed down to a crawl since I've started typing on the ACER Aspire 7720 keyboard. I used to type over 90 WPM. Now all I'm doing is proofing reading.
I don't want to disable the touchpad while I type.
Is there any other way to stop the cursor from rapidly and repeatedly jumping relocating on the screen. If the laptop wasn't so new, I'd toss it out the window...PLEASE HELP

We downloaded new mousepad drivers, and went to control panel and turned down the sensativity.

The touch pad isn't my problem. My touchpad has been disabled for over a year. My text flashy line keeps mvoing back one space. I'm typing this by hitting the end key after every keystroke.
This is what happens if I don't..

I went into control panel, mouse settings and there was an option to "disable touchpad while typing"... that seems to be working fine so far.

I've done so much research on this problem....I had this problem....and nothing worked, my original problem was a really long lag between the time I typed and the time it came on the screen with a lot of letters missing (and no it isn't because I was making typos). Other forums convinced me to roll back my driver which solved that problem but created this one. The cursor going everywhere, I honestly dont' know which was more annoying. One solution is to disable the toucpad everytime you are typing, which worked but was annoying and I would only do it when I was sitting down to write something long. For me it was pretty simple press F7. Anyway, because I didn't do it often enough and was still getting frustrated I continued to search for a solution. I was hoping Acer had come up with a BIOS fix as that was what most people were saying would have to happen before it would be fixed, but instead found this and as I have just typed this entire post with no problems, I'm convinced.
It's a free download and it automatically disables the toucpad while you type without any delay like manually doing it did for me. I'm thrilled. Hope this helps you.

Most likely a keyboard problem. Pay attention to your keystrokes, the problem will occur only when you touch a certain key.
