Question about Compaq (153515-001) Touch Pad

Compaq Presario CQ50 + over sensitive touch pad

I have a Compaq Presario CQ50 and when I type the cursor jumps everywhere. I used the button above the touchpad to turn it off, but that didn't solve the problem. And now for some reason that button doesn't work anymore at all to turn it off. I cannot find a way to disable the touch pad so that I can enjoy being on my laptop. Any suggestions.

Try the mouse settings in the control panel, also try uninstall any touchpad software and remove any touchpad software from running when the pc boots.
To do this either type msconfig into the run/search box or a program like cc cleaner under tools/startup

You're accidentally touching the Touch Pad when you are typing. A solution to this problem is to use a mouse with your Presario V6000 and turning off the Touch Pad.

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 cursor jumps back to the beginning when i'm trying to type. i'm constantly having to backspace and correct and reset my cursor. any suggestions?


Disable your touchpad if you consistently have this problem.

When you are typing something, and you suddenly touch the touchpad (tapping this touchpad moves the cursor) then your cursor will suddenly change position which then mess up your typing.

If you don'r have an external mouse connected, better be careful not to touch the touchpad. If you have an external mouse, better disable this touchpad.

When I am typing he cursor jumps around


It is a fault with Lenovo laptops. My cursor jumps all the time, no matter what software I am using. It is NOT the 'sensitivity' of the touchpad, for my cursor jumps even when I am not typing, even if I don't touch the laptop! I can set the cursor to a certain point on a document and then, after about 30 seconds, it will just jump to another point, even if I am in another room.

No cursor activity


Dear Sir,

Generally for compaq there is lock for touch pad you can see a moving lock below or above the touch pad. If locked the tochpad button,touch pad not sensitive.So open the lock and now you can move pointer using touch pad. see this pic

there is black color button lock appear at the upper border of touchpad.

Compaq Presario CQ50 - touchpad problems


A simple but temporary solution would be to use an external mouse. Logitech sells several affordable and very nice wireless mice. Then you could disable the touchpad. I find them more trouble then their worth anyway and by using an external mouse you'll most definitely increase your productivity. :)

Touchscreen problem..


probably a bad touchpad or too sensitive settings.

Check Control panel then Mouse settings and look for sensitivity. you may want to turn off "tap to click" so at least you wont open things accidentally.

If it still is malfunctioning then the touchpad can be replaced probably $80-$120 for parts and labor.
