I assume we are discussing a trackpad.
It's possible that your have your "tap to click" feature enabled, and you are inadvertently tapping the trackpad while you are sliding your finger around. Visit Apple Menu / System Preferences / Trackpad to set your trackpad controls in a way more comfortable for you.
If this doesn't solve your problem, you will have to provide us with a more specific description of what actions you are performing, and what actions the Mac is performing.

Text writing is weird. I write and part of the word appears a sentence away?


Ha, it's because your wrist or thumb is touching the mousepad occasionally - some are more sensitive than others.

Try turning the mousepad off while typing, sometimes there is a button at the mousepad area, others it's an Alt-Function key. Look for a symbol on the F-keys that look like a finger touching a square or mousepad. This, and the Alt key combination will shut it off and then back on again when you select them.
An external or USB keyboard and mouse works great for me.

Good evening, I just bought a new Packerd Bell laptop and i discovered a small but really annoying problem. When I am playing a game, I type and using the mouse at the same time. The only thing is when...


Check the mousepad settings in control panel. There are settings and programs that disable the mousepad when typing. A slight brush across the mousepad can send the cursor to odd places in your document.

There is also a small app that disables the mousepad when you type as well. Check your processe in task manager to see if there is such a program running in the background.

The left click mousepad on the HP 4720s doesn't work. The right one does and when I run my finger over the top the cursor moves.


Hello,
All you have to do is to open up the mousepad to clean up dirts that may have accumulate inside the mousepad, because dirts are the most common issues that affect the effectiveness of mousepad, but if otherwise you have to get another to replace the faulty one...

Hope this helps......

The pouse pad on my computer is not working


Try installing / reinstalling your touch-pad drivers.

Go to this site, Choose your laptop make & model ("Notebook" ==> "Aspire" ==> "Aspire 5500")

Once done, select your windows from the "Operating System" drop-down menu. Then download the Synaptics Touchpad driver in the scroll-box at the bottom.

Run the installation and restart your PC.

Hope this helps,
