Keyboard jumps up to line just typed


Sounds like you have a sticky up arrow key,or you have a virus on your comp.Try booting in safemode by turning on your computer and tapping the F8 key while booting,then choose safemode.Once you are in Windows,open the program you are using and try your text document again.If it works correctly,you may have a virus.While you are in Safemode,run your virus scanner,then reboot your computer to see if the problem is solved.If it does not fix it,try running System Restore back to before the problem started.Good luck :)

Cursor frequently jumping all over the screen when typing on my Sony VAIO VGN-FW340J/B 16.4 Notebook PC


I have had the same problem...The touchpad mouse is incredebly sensitive. What is likely happening, is your wrists are coming into contact with the pad and the sensor interprets it as a click and moving your cursor. My solution was to install a usb mouse (mine was wireless) and disable the touchpad.

The cursor backs up in the middle of my typing on my computer


Press F5 then wait three seconds and press F8. This will enter cursor mode and then you go to Start>Control Panel and then smack the tar out of your "Home and Insert" Keys. They have bad contacts. Flip the keyboard or laptop over and tighten all of the phillips head scres in that area and in general (on a laptop the keyboard screws are labelled with a "K" imprinted in the plastic next to the screw holes. Best of luck and definitely blow it out with airduster or a small vacuum.

Acer Aspire 5572 cursor's jump


Change the sensitivity to your touchpad. It is common when typing for the palm to brush up against the touchpad and the cursor jumps. Should be an Icon in your control panel to take care of it.
