Cursor freeze and symbols from numbers 1 and 2 keys

The cursor will freeze while using the touchpad and underneath it will appear a symbol that looks just like the symbols on the numbers 1 and 2 keys.  First, what are those symbols on those keys and how do we unfreeze the cursor when that happens?  Fn + F9 doesn't help.  It has Vista Home Premium with 1 gb of RAM.  Thanks.

How to key in symbols that are located above numbers?


Hold down the "Shift" key and press that number with the symbol you want. Some keyboards only have an up arrow but it's not the same as the cursor keys that have up, down, right and left. There are always two of these and usually to the left of the Z key and right of the question mark key (makes all letter keys capitals). Sory to explain this like you don't know the shift keys but just want to cover all bases.

How do i copy and paste on acer c7 chromebook


"to copy and paste a paragraph" - I just used my c7 to copy the prior phrase from you the text in your question and to paste it into this "add your solution" answer box. Here's how I did it...... 1-I placed the cursor in front of the word "to", and while holding the touchpad down with my left finger, swiped the cursor through the phrase to the end of the word "paragraph" (thereby highlighting the desired phrase), then lifted both hands. 2- With the cursor over the end of the highlighted phrase, I used my left finger to hold down the "alt" key to the left of the touchpad the clicked the touchpad causing the drop-down copy menu to appear, then lifted both hands. 3-I then used the touchpad to move the cursor over the word "copy" in the drop-down menu and clicked the touchpad.
4-Then I placed the cursor in this "answer" text-box clicked once once. Next I held down the "alt" key to the left of the touchpad and clicked the touchpad to cause the "paste" drop-down menu to appear and raised both hands. Finally I moved the cursor over the word "paste" in the drop-down menu and clicked the touchpad, thereby successfully copying and pasting the phrase from your question. PS - an alternative to holding the left alt key and clicking to get the drop-down menu is to place two fingers on the touchpad (about a half inch apart) and click with both fingers simultaneously. The latter method only works about 75% of the time for me, so I recommend using the alt key.

The cursor on my laptop froze and now can only be activated using an external mouse


It sound like the touchpad has been disabled, either in the windows control panel or in the bios.
BIOS can be accessed during boot.
Windows control panel is accessed when running.

When you type the psps cursor moves itself


This is a common user error (I've done it myself) this is Infact your palm on the touchpad. Along the top set of keys on your keyboard e.g f1 f2 f3 etc, there will also be symbols. One of these will reassemble a mouse. Next to the windows key and space bar there will be a Fn key. Hold these keys down together and it will disable the touchpad so you can type. If this doesn't work you likely don't have the required drivers.

Cursor jumps around


Depending on the sensitivity and settings of the touchpad, it may register undesired motions as mouse controls, causing the cursor to jump erratically. The software drivers that includes with its systems have sensitivity options that help alleviate this problem and ensure that only deliberate touchpad motions and taps cause the cursor to move.

Click on the Start menu and open the Control Panel. Choose an "Icon View" option from the "View by" dropdown menu, then click the "Mouse" icon. Navigate to the "Device Settings" tab and click on the Synaptics device in the list. If you have installed and use custom software other than a Synaptics application for controlling the touchpad, select it instead. Click the "Settings" button. Click the "+" symbol to expand the "Pointing" section in the left frame, and then the "Sensitivity" section. Click on "PalmCheck." If you have replaced the Synaptics drivers, the menu may use a different set of options. Click and drag the bar to the right, closer to the "Maximum" setting. An increased PalmCheck setting will help decrease cursor jumping due to accidental palm activations, a common occurrence when typing. Click on "Touch Sensitivity." Click and drag the bar to the right, closer to the "Heavy Touch" end. This will ensure light brushes by fingers or accidental activations by other objects will not cause the cursor to jump. Click "Apply" to test the settings, and "OK" when satisfied to save the changes and close the window.

Cursor jumps into a previously-typed word or line and emails won't open

Acer laptop computers come with built-in touchpads to control cursor movement onscreen. Depending on the sensitivity and settings of the touchpad, it may register undesired motions as mouse controls, causing the cursor to jump erratically. The software drivers that Acer includes with its systems have sensitivity options that help alleviate this problem and ensure that only deliberate touchpad motions and taps cause the cursor to move.

Click on the Start menu and open the Control Panel. Choose an "Icon View" option from the "View by" dropdown menu, then click the "Mouse" icon.

Dear Sir , If you start copying a Class 10 / 11


I understand the pain and how difficult it is to work on a science document!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way if you are using the office suite applications such as Word 2007 or word 2010, you can insert the symbols easily.
To insert a symbol or special character into your document, follow these steps in Word 2007:
1. Position the cursor where you would like to insert the symbol or character
2. Open the Insert ribbon
3. Click Symbol in the Symbol section
4. A menu will appear with a small selection of symbols
5. If you don't see the symbol or character you'd like to insert, click More Symbols
6. Use the controls to select between symbols and special characters. Additional tools on the symbols tab will help you expand or narrow your selection
7. When you find your symbol or special character, click it and then click Insert
8. When you're done, click Close
The symbol or special character will appear at the appropriate place in your document.
Hope this helps!!!

Well, I am helpless regarding developing a keyboard with all those scientific symbols,.LOL

Cursor problem


I've worked on a lot of the CPX machines and never encountered this issue. Can you use the cursor when it does this and does it eventually go back to the way it should be? Try checking and cleaning the connector, it's under the keyboard. To remove the keyboard, take out the screws on te bottom of the machine marked with a K. Then take a small screwdriver and lift one side of the keyboard, at this point it should lift up, keep in mind that it's still connected to the board, so lift gently.
