Go to the touchpad properties, touchpad settings, Enable TouchCheck, set the slider to the far left (1/2 Second Delay) this will disable the touch pad while typing and enable it 1/2 second after you stop typing

Cursor jump while typing


It's the touchpad driver that's causing it. I suggest that you update the driver. You can search for the driver manually or use RadarSync to save your time.

When i type in my MS word or replying mail using outlook, my cursor jumps to somewhere, actually it just happened several times when i type this message


On your touch pad exists a place that works like a scroller on the mouse (Usually the right part of pad with white lining). When you rest your wrists in this area, the cursor usually jumps in another place. I'm of course hoping that this is the problem and that your touch pad works fine. Try it and please tell me if this fails..

While I'm typing, the cursor moves to another place in the sentence or on the screen. This is a huge problem, because when I'm tying, the cursor goes back anywhere it wants to in the sentence, which mixes...


Try an external mouse. I have seen this happen many times, and it is usually the users hand brushing the integrated laptop mouse pad.
If the external mouse works and the problem is not there, then try again with the internal pad, and watch to see if your hands or fingers brush against it.

If it still happens even with the external mouse and you are sure you are not touching the pad accidentally, then you may want to contact manufacturer of computer, check for updated USB drivers as well.

Your internal mouse runs off USB, and there is a possibility there may be a glitch there that could be resolved with an update.

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.

My Sony laptop cursor jumps around when typing


Yes, you are accidently hitting the touch pad.
Trust me--that is what is happening. Some laptops have VERY sensitive touch pads. If you can disable the touchpad and use a mouse, do it. (that is what I do, as I suffered the very same problem.)
On one customer, I had to actually open the computer and disconnect the pad.
If you can't disable it (many new computers have some sort of switch to disable it, even if it's a combo of the Fn key and one of the special function keys, practice better hand position--raise your seat or lower the laptop to keep your wrists from drooping and getting your thumb near the pad.

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.

Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
