Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an HP Pavilion dv5224 laptop. pe I find that when I ty at a clip, things like what just happened (my cursor somehow jumps to another place in the para--from ty to 1st line pe). This happens pretty frequently, and usually when I'm typing fast--not slow. It is very annoying. I can't figure out why it does this. I am not inadvertently hitting any of the arrow keys--they are far down on the right. It might be related to the space bar, however.

Does your laptop have touchpad that acts as a mouse if you don't have a mouse plugged in (it's usually directly below the spacebar)? If any part of your hand accidentally brushes that sensitive rectangular area, it will cause the mouse cursor to jump around.

There is usually a button you can push at the top of the rectangular touchpad to turn it off while you're typing. On my HP laptop it has a blue light, and when I push the button it turns red.

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.

Go to your control panel and double click on your mouse icon to get to your mouse properties. Go to "Pointer Options" and make sure that the "snap to" box is unchecked.

The ALPS Touchpad in the HP dv4 causes random pointer movements


i have the same problem with my HP Pavilion DV4 they were unhelpful on the phone about it. It's been happening with this computer since I bought it. The cursor will just jump around randomly for a few minutes being unresponsive. Then go back to normal.

I am having a problem when I type and the cursor moving


This happens when your hands get to close to the palmrest and your wrists are actually causing the cursor to jump to another spot. Go to the control panel > mouse> settings > highlight the touchpad listed and select the settings button. Look through the entries and there is a setting for palmrest sensitivity. Turn down the sensitivity so your hands and wrists don't trigger a cursor movement. The hardware and drivers are fine, this is a setting adjustment.

Cursor jumps to the buttom right corner of the screen


I've got the same problem. I've personally identified it as the digitizer being triggered by the fan. You'll notice that if you rotate the screen away from the fan area, the jumping will stop. Also, if you don't run the computer too hot, the jumping won't happen. I told HP about the problem a while ago but they ignored me. I've been using my laptop for the past year with the digitizer disabled in the device manager.

My letters and words will randomly go in different places


Have you checked the moue and keyboard settings see if there is something in the settings...one computer I would recommend to check the keyboard wiring but with two that would be quite a coincidence. If the mouse is chasing the cursor then its got to be a software issue..also run spyware software on both. Spyware captures keystrokes so could be affecting the keyboard pointer settings.

Pavilion wont stay connected to internet through linksys router


without looking at laptops myself, if it's not a problem where somehow a connection got loose or built up dust and debris, then it could be a hardware issue where the pavilion wifi isn't as good as the vaio's. The same thing happens to me on my hp pavilion dv2000.
