Gateway MX6025 touchpad jump

Gateway MX6025 touchpad problem: mouse pointer / arrow spontaneously jumps / jumping uncontrollably. Solution: get a piece of cellophane, cut it in square piece to cover the touchpad, then use transparent tape to affix one side of the cellophane to the computer's body, then tape the transparent tape to another side of the cellophane, then create tention (stretch a little bit) the cellophane over the touchpad and affix this end to the computer body. So, you will have piece of cellophane covering the touchpad: the distance between the touchpad and the cellophane will be about 1 millimeter and the cellophane will be tentioned (stretched with good tention) over the surface of the touchpad.

While booting, go into your BIOS settings by pressing either the F1, F2, or F10 key. In the device settings of your BIOS is where you can disable the response of the touchpad.

SOURCE: My fan isn't working. Could cleaning the fan make it work?

Cleaning the fan won't do it. If it's not turning then the bearings are probably gunked up. Replacing the fan is the best solution. Your Gateway laptop still has a screw to be undone. It's probably behind a label or inside a door. Once the screws are gone the top lifts off easily.

Dell pc pointer jumps while and after typing


Make sure your fingers/palms aren't grazing the touchpad as you're typing. What's probably happening is your hands are too close to the touchpad, making the computer think you're using the mouse, and thus jumping the cursor around.

Mouse pointer jumps when moving it on screen.


If you are not using a mouse pad, try that. Using the mouse on reflective or glass surfaces. Try another mouse to see if it has the same issues. Check your mouse settings in control panel to make sure everything seems ok. Update mouse drivers. Finally, you can try to uninstall / reinstall the mouse.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ62. When typing anywhere, the cursor randomly jumps to another spot in the text and continue inserting text there. How do I correct this?


This typically happens when the typist's palms touch the touchpad, which the pad treats as a mouse click. See if the cursor is jumping to where the pointer is.
Most touchpads have a control panel (usually part of the MOUSE Control Panel) where you can reduce the sensitivity (or disable) the left click function from tapping the touchpad.

My touchpad jumps around or the arrow won't move


Keep the palms of your hands away from your touchpad.
Just being "close" to the touchpad is enough to move the mouse-pointer.

While typing it will jump to wherever the pointer is so if Im not looking I'll be typing on a whole different line. So irritating how do I fix this?


If you are typing on a notebook computer that has a "touchpad", your fingers/thumb are contacting the touchpad, and that results in a "click" of the mouse to set the "focus" where the arrow is pointing.
Then, the characters you type are inserted at the new location.

What the issue is, is the eraser head mouse in the enter of the keyboard. When you type, it's putting uneccessary pressure on it, and it makes the pointer move. The only solution I know for this is to get the updated ALPS driver for the mouse, and disable the eraserhead (The updated driver gives you an option to do this), thereby using only the touchpad mouse.

Keyboard type


This problem is very common on laptop computer. What happens is while you type on the keyboard, your hand comes close to or touches the touchpad below the keyboard. The system see that as a mouse click and so your cursor will 'jump' to whatever location on the screen the mouse pointer is at.

This can happen, even if you do not feel your hand touch as the touchpads are sensitive enough to respond to your hand bring just above them.

Gateway and most manufacturers have addressed this common user frustration on new models of laptops by either adding some 'palm detection' to their touchpads and drivers or adding a simple way to turn the touchpad on or off.

Depending what model system you have (solo 9100 vs 9150) and what operating system you are running, you may have a few options.

First off, you must be using Windows 98 to have access to these options in the touchpad driver.

For a solo 9100 you have adjust to touchpad sensitivy. To get to the touchpad settings click Start->Settings->Control Panel. Double click on the MOUSE icon. Click on the TOUCHPAD tab. On this tab you can set the threshold setting as heavy as possible to help decrease the frequency at which the mouse will jump while typing. In the solo 9100 models, this is the only setting that addresses this problem.

For the solo 9150 you can the disable clickin while typing. To get to this setting: Click on START->Setting->Control Panel. Double Click on the MOUSE icon. Click on the TOUCHPAD tab. In the TAPPING section, Place a check mark next to Disable tapping when typing.

If these settings do not help or are not available due to another operating systems etc, then your best option is to physcially cover the touchpad when you are doing things that require a lot of tyings. If you need a lot of mouse/typing, then you can add an external mouse to assist you. I have found that placing a post-it note over the touchpad is more convenient then other barriers since it light sticks to help it stay in place.

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
