    I have the same problem. I'll be typing in MS Word and the cursor will suddenly move to another place in the document. Very annoying. I have no idea what to do about this. Actually this just happened now as I was typing this.

When that problem happens to me I turn off my pointer pad. I have a Compaq Presario and it has a button to shut off the mouse pad. When I simply shut it off it does not jump when I am typing. I don't know the originating cause but at least I can make the annoyance go away when it would bother me the most. Hope this helps.

The tip about turning off the mouse pad seems to be the key. I don't have a button on my Presario to turn off the touch pad, but if I cover it with a piece of paper that seems to do it.

Clean your touchpad, making sure the edges are clean, I suggest using a damp cloth. Another culprit could be the eraser head pointer, worst invention ever.

How do i fix keystrokes that jump backward as I type?


Some Lenovo touchpads are over sensitive and they cause the cusor to slip or jump around. In Control Panel select Mouse or Touchpad. A box will open and you can locate touchpad Properties and adjust the sensitivity. Lenovo also has updated touchpad software/drivers for one or two of the most troublesome models. i was able to reduce the cursor jumping around quite a bit by adjusting the sensitivity, but i still don't think it's a good design.

Dell pc pointer jumps while and after typing


Make sure your fingers/palms aren't grazing the touchpad as you're typing. What's probably happening is your hands are too close to the touchpad, making the computer think you're using the mouse, and thus jumping the cursor around.

I just bought a new computer (Lenovo G580, Model Name: 20157, PC Laptops with Windows 8) on November 23, 2012. A Windows 8 problem? I have experienced my cursor jumping around randomly while typing


Straight from the user guide, just discovered it today because I have also been having this frustrating problem. Use Fn + F6 - it is a toggle switch to enable and disable the Touchpad. I have a Lenovo wireless mouse now instead.

My acer 5310 cursor skips to a random place on the text while typing, I`m not touching the touch pad at all.


Hi There,

Even though you may not actually ever contact the touchpad while typing, many laptops have the flat ribbon cable that connects to the motherboard under at least a portion of the keyboard. This can cause the touchpad to think it's been activated and make the cursor jump when keys are struck.

Here's a really simple little application called "Touchfreeze"you can install that automatically disables the touchpad ONLY when you are typing. If it does not solve your problem, at least it will have no effect on your computer in any negative way.

Before you're hasty to leave a negative rating for this response, keep in mind that this program may help hundreds of others who view this post. I've seen it cure end many people's woes who weren't actually touching the touchpad.

Best Wishes

Cursor randomly jumping to last occurance of a letter


it is not a problem with your cursor, i think you didnt install the TOUCHPAD program of your Laptop that is why its jumping anywhere, install it to control your cursor on the screen.

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.

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.
