When I type words slip out of the sentence and attach to other parts of the sentence, out of context and I have to cut and paste that part back in


What you will likely find is that the bottoms of your hands are touching the trackpad causing the cursor to jump around, this is very common with laptops. You can often disable the trackpad if you will be typing for a while or if you use an external mouse. Most Toshiba laptops have a "hotkey" to disable the trackpad temporarily. The ones I have seen are usually on F9, so you hold down the "Fn" key (bottom left side next to Cntrl), then press F9. This is a toggle and will enable and disable the trackpad. I almost always use a mouse with my laptops just for this reason. Some laptops, (usually HP) will have an actual button near the trackpad that will disable it temporarily for extended typing.

The trick is often to just learn how to type without letting the bottoms of your hands touch the pad, and you will find this issue disappears.

How do I fix cursor. When I use my cursor some times it want respond to the location I need it to go.How can I fix it?


Instructions
    • 1 Close all application windows and restart the laptop. This will shut down any background processes that might be affecting your cursor. Rebooting often remedies cursor skipping problems.
    • 2 Run antivirus software to confirm that your misbehaving cursor is not caused by malware. If the cursor has changed to an unfamiliar shape without you initiating the change, your system could be infected by a virus or you might have installed unstable software. Run an antivirus scan and remove suspicious files and programs from your laptop.
    • 3 Adjust your touchpad's settings. In Windows, open "Control Panel," click on "Mouse" and then click "Tapping." On a Mac, access "Trackpad" and "System Preferences." Lower the tracking speed or sensitivity so that if you are accidentally touching the touchpad while typing, you are less likely to cause the cursor to skip. Save your new settings.

My laptop has a black screen with a blinking cursor


Blinking Cursor b> Laptops, especially models with a touchpad, occasionally experience issues with a skipping cursor. The cursor on the screen may skip or jump when you are using it or even when you are just typing and not actually using the cursor. This can be especially annoying when playing games or typing. Adjusting the sensitivity of your touchpad may remedy the problem.

The scroll bar in my laptops' touch pad isn't working.


The scroll on your laptop is controlled by the trackpad installed on the system.

If you are having problems with the scroll on your laptop's trackpad, there is something you can do before you take it into a computer repair shop.


Updating the driver to the trackpad will enable the scroll if it is not working at all.

Once the driver is updated, your scroll should work again.


You can access the driver through the Device Manager on your laptop.


Click the "Start" button, then click the "Search" option.


Type "Device Manager" into the search bar and press the "Enter" button.

Click on the "Device Manager" icon from the menu, then scroll down to the "Track Pad" icon on the left side of the screen.


Click on the icon, then click the "Driver" tab at the top of the window. Click the "Update" driver option from the window.


Wait for the new driver to install on your computer.


This should take about two minutes to complete.

A window will appear telling you that the driver has been installed.


Put your fingers on the touchpad to move the mouse around on the screen.


Hope this helps.

I have a HP 630,how can I disable the trackpad. There are no options avi in control panal


The touchpad provides full mouse functionality to your laptop but there are instances when you may actually feel more productive without the touchpad. For instance, if you have attached an external mouse to your laptop, you may not need an alternate input mechanism which is the built-in touchpad.
Sometimes your thumbs or palm may accidentally touch the touchpad while you're typing and this may inadvertently move your mouse cursor to a different location in the document. If you were not looking at your screen when the pointer jumped, you may end up typing at the wrong place.

Cursor on my toshiba sattelite is locked


Hi

This is not automatic lock but you have turned off the trackpad

Hold the Fn key and press F9 key this will re-activate the mouse and then you can use it.

It is provided to turn off because then you type if your palm touch the trackpad the cursor will move and you may start typing somewhere else.

DO RATE MY SOLUTION.

Jumping cursor


This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.
