When I tap on the touch pad on a HP Pavilion dv7 cursor jumps

When I tap on the touch pad on my hp Pavilion dv7 the cursor sometimes jumps somewhere else on the screen. I sent it 2 times to hp and it was returned no problem found. They advised me to set the pointer speed to half but it still happens. I found on their own web site a bulletin that confirms that they seem to have a problem: Does it take a class action suit to fix this?

The touchpad is installed on HP notebook PCs.
You can "tap" and "double tap" your touchpad with your finger, and interact with the operating system in exactly the same way as clicking and double clicking on your mouse.
When using touchpad on your notebook PC, the cursor may jump, flicker, or double-click by itself.

Follow the recommendations in that HP document, or "disable" the TouchPad, if you don't like what it does.

look at your startup files and see if this program "apoint2k" is running. However, it is a driver for the touch pad. Try enabling it to solve the problem.

You can go to the Control Panel (Select the start button and then either "Control Panel" or "Settings" and then "Control panel") and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Then you can select the "Device Select" tab and check the box marked "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present."

That is also where you can permantly disable the touch pad by simply selecting "Disable Device" and "Disable Button"

Hope that helps.
