Compaq Presario CQ50 + over sensitive touch pad CONTINUED

I just emailed about the jumping cursor and trying to disable the touchpad, I tried to locate anything to do with touchpad under control panel/mouse settings, as well as going in to uninstall anything that says touchpad as recommended in the response, but there is nothing on my computer that says ''touchpad'' or comes up under mouse settings. Any other options to try?

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.

just select eh operation system and download the touch pad driver..
or go to control panel ..open the touch pad icon ..and in there select default settings ..or enable the cursor again ..if it is disabled..
if this is not working ..try reinstall it like I said ..It always starts a clean installation from the factory settings ..
Avoid hibernate it ..cause will always preserve the last settings ..just close it proper each time ..this way it will boot and recognize devices each time from the start ..

Compaq Presario CQ50 + over sensitive touch pad


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

Asus touch pad too sensitive


There should be settings in the touch pad software on your machine or in the task bar that you can directly access to change all manner of personal idiosyncrasies related to HID. (Human interface device) Try also going into the control panel and looking for input devices, mouse, touchpad and adjusting the settings from within there.

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.

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

Jumping cursor


First, try to adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad in the control panel for the mouse. If this doesn't work you can just plug in an external mouse to disable the touchpad. If it still jumps, read the following.

This will involve opening the top part of the laptop. Usually there is a plastic piece holding down the keyboard. Directly above the keyboard. Use a flat head screwdriver to remove it.

Once you see the keyboard, then remove it. Just below that is the connection to the touchpad, undo it and just tape it to an area underneath the 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. :)
