Keyboard Cursor Jumping

Hi,
Recently I started having some problems while typing on my Acer laptop....While I'm typing the cursor will sometimes jump back to an sentence above or between letters. I've done a search about this problem and mostly the answers I see are it's caused by accidently touching the touch pad. That's not the case here. I've had this laptop over a yr and the problem only started about 2 weeks ago.
Thanks,
Susan

    me too with Acer 4930 - cursor jumps all over the page



  • madlizard5 Apr 08, 2009

    I have a HP Presario dv4000 which I've had for 3 yrs. now and about 3 months ago I noticed that the cursor will move to a different place in my text. It could move to the beginning of a sentence, in between words. There is no pattern. I've researched the issue and solutions such as changing the touchpad sensitivity were given. I've since tried that but didnt' think that was the solutions since I haven't changed that since I purchased the laptop and it just recently started jumping. What else can it be? I even restored the laptop to a time prior to the issue and that didn't fix it.

I have been having the same problem for some time now with my Acer laptop and windows vista.
What worked for me was changing a Mouse setting in the Control Panel.
Go to Control Panel -> Mouse. Then go to the "Tapping" tab and make sure that the "Tap off when typing" box is Checked

When I am typing my curser starts jumping around how do I stop this


Try disabling the touchpad in the BIOS and see if it still happens. If it stops you are accidently touching the pad while typing and the cursor jumps becaus eof that

Cursor keeps jumping back in text when typing. This results in over typing things already typed. Not sure if this is me or a problem with my new laptop ?


Hi,

This is either caused by a remaining flea power on the laptop.

Try draining the flea power first:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

open a notepad, or any microsoft office and check if the cursor keeps jumping. If yes, try updating the touchpad driver / BIOS update.

Hope this helps.

Keyboard problem- cursor keeps jumping around when I'm typing


You may be inadvertently touching the touch pad with the side of your hand or fingers as you type OR the touch pad itself is bad and needs replacement.

I have a problem with a jumping keyboard...


This is on a laptop? I use to have the same thing happen to me, couldn't figure out what it was until I paid close attention to what I was doing. When i was typing the bottom part of my palms use to just touch the touch pad moving the cursor. Watch yourself see if that's what's happening. The best way to test this would be to disable your touchpad while your typing and see if it happens. If it doesn't, enable your touchpad again. If it starts happening again i would said that's what it is. Hopefully that'll take care of it for you.

Acer 5720 - cursor/keyboard: applying pressure causes jumping


Solution one: Don't apply pressure to left side of laptop :)
Solution two: Bits of hardware (like your touchpad) plug into the mainboard with thin ribbon connectors. Sounds like this has become loose, or something is shorting against something else. Solution is to take it to bits and reseat the connectors on the mainboard. Not easy to do and I really don't recommend you do it unless you know what you are doing; laptops are so fiddly and difficult to get apart.

If it's in warranty then get Acer to sort it. If not you may want to pay to get it fixed (or go with solution one!).

Cursor skips lines while typing


My experience: cursor suddenly moving backward when i was typing, or moving somewhere else on the page. I would be typing and text suddenly would get highlighted. I followed someone's advice to disable the touch pad. Since I do have a mouse & key pad that was all i had to do.
HOW TO DISABLE THE TOUCHPAD FOR ACER 3680 AND OTHERS??? PRESS Fn +F7
Yep, it was that simple. At first I made sure i typed without my fingers or palms touching or near the touchpad. I noticed it seemed to stop or happen less. Soon as I disabled the touch pad all is back to normal. Yet I spent hrs trying to find out how and there were all these posts by people suggesting downloads and other more complicated things etc..
