1. Disable the touchpad tapping feature.
a. Click on start>Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Under Devices and Printers option, select the Mouse option.
b. Click on the Tapping tab, then, disable the tapping feature.
If the tapping tab is not available, then reinstall the touchpad drivers and disable the tapping feature.
You can reintsll the touchpad drivers either using the VAIO Care Software in the computer or from the support page of your notebook.

Trouble when typing on the keyboard on my sony vaio


Keep the palms of your hands away from the "touchpad" -- you're accidentally moving the mouse-pointer as your fingers press on the keys.

My curser keeps jumping into the middle of my sentence when i type.


If you have a laptop with a touchpad just below the spacebar be careful that you are not accidentally hitting the touchpad. I had an identical problem on one of my laptops, and simply switching to using a mouse and turning off the touchpad fixed the problem for me.

Sony vaio touch pad not working.


My Vaio touchpad started behaving strange. I could move the curser, but no response on left or right click or double tap. Also found that in any search field or user name fields, the computer would just type endless 9's. My wireless mouse could operate the left and right click buttons, but not move the curser. A suggestion to get the mousepad operating again was to touch any key on the keyboard. This allowed it to function again. Final solution was to remove the battery, then hold down the start key for about a minute, reinsert the battery and start it up. It seems to have resolved the problem. I have a 3 month only laptop with Windows 7 already installed. Hope this helps.
