Hello
Most probably because your 'Touch Pad Mouse' is touched by your palm (hand or something) while you are typing. Avoid contact with the mouse touch pad while typing.
Option 2:
If you have a centre moveable mouse on your laptop, start using it and disable the 'Touch pad mouse'
Best of luck!

My curser jumps all around the screen when I am typing, how do I make it stop


hi...

thats normal on many laptops... even on my Dell and Lenovo...

the trick is to disable the Trackpad when typing...

1) Click Fn + F3 keys together to disable the trackpad and then type
2) Click Fn + F3 keys together to re enable the trackpad and then type
3) Buy an external Keyboard and Mouse (Wireless one) and use them (I do the same)
4) if you have trackpad drivers & application installed then adjust the sensitivity of trackpad on it

Thanks,

When typing, cursor jumps backward several spaces


Sounds like your mousepad is ghosting. This means it thinks you're tapping the mousepad as you type, which will make it type exactly where you nlast moved the curser to. First, try cleaning the pad thoroughly with a damp tissue, and dry it well... if that doesn't solve it, you could try adjusting the mousepad sensitivity controls on the control panel. Hope that helps.

Try disabling the touchpad in the BIOS and see if it still happens. If it stops you are accidently touching the pad while typing and the cursor jumps becaus eof that

Keyboard curser bounces around


Are you bumping the touch pad while you type? This may be causing the curser to move around. This laptop is known for its sensitive touch pad.
