For some reason, right in the middle of typing something, my satellite will suddenly be typing in another place on the page, often in the middle of a sentence I've already typed, causing all kinds of confusion for me. I have to constantly watch the screen even when typing in name and addie info at a website because my computer will erase sentences, stop typing, or move the cursor. It seems to coincide with processor activity. I'd really like to be able to type nonstop for more than a few minutes without my computer deciding that it wants to put the cursor somewhere else, or even nowhere else.
Toshiba Satellie a85-s1072. I've had this computer a couple of year and this just started happening: I'll be typing along and the cursor will disappear and I can't type anymore. It happens every 10-20 seconds. I have to tap the touch pad again to reinsert the cursor where I'm typing. It's definitely a hardware problem because it happens in all programs.
I was having the same problem - I tried the FN+F9 but that didn't disable the mouse for me and I wasn't in love with having to go back and forth. I went into control panel into the advanced settings and turned off the tap feature on the touch pad and other advanced features you can use the touch pad for (like moving the browser page forward and backward - that had also been randomly happening to me) and decreased the sensitivity. Since then it hasn't happened to me or my dad's netbooks - looks like it's doing the trick!

This is a known issue in microsoft word. There is no fix as of yet but most people are moving their cursor to the bottom right of the screen after they have clicked where they wish to be typing. hope this helps
The usual reason this happens in laptops is that as you're typing, you hit the touchpad with the heel of your hand and the cursor moves. I've done it myself. What I suggest is turning off the touchpad and using an external mouse if you do a lot of typing. This eliminates the accidental contact, and (to me, at least) a real mouse is more comfortable for frequent use. Most computers have a switch that turns the touchpad on or off, or you can disable it through the Windows Control Panel or touchpad utility program.
The reason why the cursor is moving from one corner to another is the Mouse touch pad in satellite is very Sencitive press the button on top of the mouse pad to disable the mouse and then start typing you will see that the cursur is not moving again while you are typing.
Restarts can be connected to Hardware problems in Windows XP in Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Startup and recovery -> Settings you has radio button Automatic restart. Remove it and probably it will gave you blue screens next time, but there will be no restart any more. Problem with cursor usually because you touch your touchpad when you typing quickly, turn it off if you can, or be more patient :)
This happens when your hands get to close to the palmrest and your wrists are actually causing the cursor to jump to another spot. Go to the control panel > mouse> settings > highlight the touchpad listed and select the settings button. Look through the entries and there is a setting for palmrest sensitivity. Turn down the sensitivity so your hands and wrists don't trigger a cursor movement. The hardware and drivers are fine, this is a setting adjustment.
i think there may be two reason.1/some setting may be worang-go on conttrol panel and chose printer and other hardwere. inside click mouse and look setting.2/ your touchpad driver may not be working properly. stall it next.
Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!
I have found this is usually the small button in the middle of the keyboard (mouse button) I have tried some software to remove this problem but it did not on my laptop I ended up carefully removing the key board and disconnecting the two wires that go to the button My cursors kept moving across the screen
To resolve this issue please follow the steps below:- 1) Locate the picture icon called "Synaptics Touchpad" or "Pointing Device" that is located next to the digital time (usually in the bottom right hand side of the screen). 2) Click on the icon with the right-hand mouse clicker and select the option: MOUSE PROPERTIES in the small sub-menu that pops up. 3) You should now see a new window dominating the screen with several options and tabs along the top. Select the "Tapping" tab listed there with the left-hand mouse clicker. 4) When Tapping Selected the menu window will change presenting some new options. There should be an option near the bottom of the menu called "Tap off when typing" Click the box next to this menu option, success will bring up a little tick in the box clicked on. 5) To the right of the "Tap off when typing" option there should be a new sliding controller available with two options on either end (Short ---- Long) and a triangular shaped slider button in the middle of the two. The triangular shaped button needs to be moved to approximately three-quarters to the right (towards "long"). 6) Once above step has been completed left click select the "Apply" button on the bottom right hand side of the menu, and then click "Ok" to confirm changes.
