Try going to control panel, mouse/touchpad properties and reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad. You may also want to disable the "Tap to Click" option if you often inadvertantly click on an item.

Mouse pointer jumps when moving it on screen.


If you are not using a mouse pad, try that. Using the mouse on reflective or glass surfaces. Try another mouse to see if it has the same issues. Check your mouse settings in control panel to make sure everything seems ok. Update mouse drivers. Finally, you can try to uninstall / reinstall the mouse.

You can use a USB mouse and disable the touch pad in Device manager. you can find it by right clicking my computer going to properties and on the upper left you will see device manager. look for your touch pad....common one is synaptic this should solve the problem...most touch pads are heat driven....so even if you get close to it with your palm while typing it will read as if you touched it and move cursor accordingly. Hope this helps

My eMachines notebook, the touchpad is no longer working. Re-loaded drivers from web site, still not working?


For touch pad lagging, adjusting the mouse setting should fix the problem.

Select Control Panel from the start menu

double click on Mouse icon

Select the Pointer Options tab in the top

In the motion section, set the pointer speed in the middle.

And also tick Enhance pointer precision .

Click Apply and OK.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

When I tap on the touch pad on a HP Pavilion dv7 cursor jumps


The touchpad is installed on HP notebook PCs.
You can "tap" and "double tap" your touchpad with your finger, and interact with the operating system in exactly the same way as clicking and double clicking on your mouse.
When using touchpad on your notebook PC, the cursor may jump, flicker, or double-click by itself.

Follow the recommendations in that HP document, or "disable" the TouchPad, if you don't like what it does.

Text jumps around on the screen


If you're still experiencing the problem (how frustrating if you still are !), I would suggest running a anti-spyware program such as SpyBot, or anti-malware program, such as Malwarebytes. Good luck.

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

When Typing sometime flashing cursor jumps into another line or row how can I correct this


Ok, on the laptop. This is where your problem lies. Your glide pad is fighting you. When you boot up, press Del, F2 or F10 to enter bios screens. You want to change the property value for your pointer, from mose and glide pad to mouse only or serial. Anything that doesn't include your glide pad.

Let me know what you find.
