Touchpad needs to be turned off


Down by the clock, there should be an icon for the touch pad. Right click and disable.

You will need to have a mouse attached as disabling the touch pad disables *all* parts of it, including the touch buttons down there.

If you no longer have the icon for the touchpad down by your clock, there should be an icon for it in Control Panel, OR you go to Mouse in the control panel, and one of the tabs in the mouse control applet will have an option to check or remove the check from, for using the touch pad.

If the issue is that it still senses your hands when typing .. you might be able to decrease the sensitivity, and there are apps you can buy (inexpensive and some may be free if supported by the manufacturer or by the touch pad maker) apps that will also disable the touch pad while you are typing, and that re-enable after you stop typing for X seconds. etc..

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

While I type, often the cursor moves to the poit where the mouse icon is locatde, as if the touchpad has been pressed.


yeah you have touch sensitivity set to high in the touch pad and your wrist is hitting the touch pad. go your touch pad settings in the control panel and turn it down til when your wrist brushes it, it doesn't move the mouse.

Cursor jumping around when typing on a Dell 1530


It is most likely the touch pad...a way you can tell is if you have a USB mouse, turn off the touch pad and use the USB mouse...go to type and see if it still jumps around.

When typing the curser jumps to a different position


This is because you are touching the touch pad with your palms. when typing avoid contact with the mouse pad in your laptop. I hope this will help. Thanks.. Please rate this!!

I have trouble when typing. The letters skip all over text.


Do you have a small button on the top side of the touch pad that will allow you to turn off the mouse? I bet that you are accidently touching the mouse pad with your thumb while you are typing, and this is causing your problem. I have the same problem if I do not turn off the touch pad on my laptop.

Good luck, and please rate me, OK?

Whilst typing the cursor moves to another part of the document


If your laptop has the option too you can turn off touch pad through a switch above the touch pad.

If you can't find this, or you don't have one, simply go to the run command and type in devmgmt.msc, ok.

Once in the device manager go "Mice and Other Pointing Devices"
look for your touchpad, right click on it and select disable.

Please note, some laptops wont let you disable to the touchpad, mine wont, but mine has an on and off key.

ON/OFF Key
Touch Pad On
Touch Pad Off

This will keep the mouse from moving whole you type, but I suggest you get a regular mouse, especially if you have to disable the device with the Device manager.
