Hi lesandlen,

Well, there are a lot of factors that could be involved with your cursor acting up. For starters, could you answer if it is a trackball, optical, or laser mouse? What kind of surface are you using it on? And did it come with a driver CD that you have installed?

Generally, your cursor will move erratically when the sensor that detects movement of the mouse is fed mis-information. If it's a trackball, this can happen when foreign material is caught along the inside wheel sensors besides the trackball. On an optical mouse, it can be similar foreign material interfering with the digital camera's ability to take pictures of your mouse surface. Similar for a laser, but they are much more precise.

Could you provide us with more information? Thanks!

This is usually caused from the touch pad just below the keyboard. The easiest fix is to turn the touch pad off when you are going to do a lot of typing.

When I boot my notebook up I can't move the curser, it is stuck on one person to sign on, the curser is not positioned on that persons name either.


TRy plugging in an external USB mouse. If the mouse is OK then the touch pad has failed.
Check the touch pad driver in the control panel then Device manager.
Hope this helps.

How can i adjust the touchpad sensivity? When I type the curser jumpe all over and what I am typing disappears sometime.


Open to the control panel and select "hardware and sound" or any other selection referring to hardware. On the next screen select "mouse." That screen should give you a mouse properties screen with tabbed selections such as "tapping" and touchpad sensitivity.

Also make sure that your touchpad is clean and doesn't have any hair or other stray debris on it.

if it is the same thing that happens to me you need to shut off your touchpad (mousepad) when you are typing as your fingers or palms cause the curser to jump if you touch it while typing
