Open to the control panel and select "hardware and sound" or any other selection referring to hardware. On the next screen select "mouse." That screen should give you a mouse properties screen with tabbed selections such as "tapping" and touchpad sensitivity.

Also make sure that your touchpad is clean and doesn't have any hair or other stray debris on it.

Overly sensitive keyboard curser while typing on my Acer Aspire 7551-7422


Sometimes the heat from your hand passing near the touchpad is enough to move the cursor. I hate that too. If it really bothers you then you could always use a wireless mouse and disable the touchpad in "Device Manager"

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

Have you found the answer yet? I don't know that particular laptop but if you use the touchpad, it happened to me because even the lightest brush against the surface with a stray finger would make the cursor jump all over and do the same quite annoying thing as you described.

My curser keeps jumping into the middle of my sentence when i type.


If you have a laptop with a touchpad just below the spacebar be careful that you are not accidentally hitting the touchpad. I had an identical problem on one of my laptops, and simply switching to using a mouse and turning off the touchpad fixed the problem for me.

I just had my dell inspiron e1505 rebooted and operating system reinstalled over phone with dell and now when i type sometimes my cursor and keys jump all around my document.


The sensitivity on the Touchpad may be too light. Go into Control Panel and click on Touchpad/keyboard to reduce the sensivity level. Also, you can also look at the settings in the Mouse Icon while you are in Control Panel again to check the sensitivity.
