Either its because you are hitting your touchpad while you are typing, or the little eraser mouse ball thats on the keyboard is faulty. If that is bad, you must replace the keyboard.

hi there you probably have the same problem as me with my dell m5040, part of the palm rest shorts with the mouse and becomes active so when your palm or wrist touches it the mouse icon moves and jumps.

Cursor on my toshiba sattelite is locked


Hi

This is not automatic lock but you have turned off the trackpad

Hold the Fn key and press F9 key this will re-activate the mouse and then you can use it.

It is provided to turn off because then you type if your palm touch the trackpad the cursor will move and you may start typing somewhere else.

When i am typing something my curser jumps and types over something I've already typed. example: when i am typing hing my curser jumps and typesomet


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.

Cursor jumps to the buttom right corner of the screen


I've got the same problem. I've personally identified it as the digitizer being triggered by the fan. You'll notice that if you rotate the screen away from the fan area, the jumping will stop. Also, if you don't run the computer too hot, the jumping won't happen. I told HP about the problem a while ago but they ignored me. I've been using my laptop for the past year with the digitizer disabled in the device manager.

Jumping cursor on EEE pc.


You're hitting the touchpad with your palms as you type. Either lift your hands when you're typing or temporarily disable the touchpad.

My cursor on my toshiba laptop keeps jumping when am typing


Ive seen this problem a few times, the problem is that your accidently or inadvertently touching the touch pad as you type. To fix this just disable the touchpad when your typing or put a piece of paper over it. To disable the touchpad it varies on different models but can normaly be done with a button near it, a FN and F1-8 key combo or through the touchpad driver on the task bar. Consult your manual for information on how to disable this.

While typing an email the cursor will jump back a few sentences


I recently acquired this problem after having my computer serviced. I have been using it for over a year with no difficulty. I read somewhere that this is a microsoft problem, one of their service packages. The question is, which one?

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.
