Mouse cursor jumping problem, how to fix it?


A mouse is a vital component of your computer and allows you to control certain functions on the screen. When the mouse is not functioning correctly, it can be frustrating. There are a few different reasons why your mouse pointer may jump on the screen. You need to work through the possible causes and troubleshoot the problems to fix your mouse and get it working properly again.

1.
Examine the batteries if you have a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to jump. A low battery may be the cause. Change the batteries and check the mouse again. If it is still experiencing the same problems, proceed to the next steps to resolve the issue.

2.
Switch the wireless transmitter to a different USB port on another computer if possible. There could be problems with the port, causing the cursor to jump. This will resolve the problem if the issue is with the USB port. If the mouse is still jumping, move on to the next steps.

3.
Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left corner of the screen. Right-click on the "My Computer" menu and click on "Properties." Click on the "Hardware" menu and click on "Device Manager." Locate the mouse entry in the list. Right-click on it and select "Update Driver" from the menu. Allow a few moments for the operating system to locate and install an updated driver for your mouse.

4. Remove dust or debris from the mouse pad and mouse with a soft cloth. Dust or debris could prevent the mouse from operating smoothly and cause the cursor to jump. Add a small amount of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth before you begin. Wait for the alcohol to dry on the pad and mouse prior to using.
5. Go to the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel." Double-click on the "Mouse" icon and click on "Mouse Pointer." Decrease the speed of the mouse pointer. This could be causing the cursor to jump.
I hope you find it very helpful.
Thank you.

Hi,
I believe I can help in what you are experiencing with your jumping cursor concern. you mentioned that you downloaded a driver, try downloading touch freeze, google it it will give you links where to download it and it is free, this should fix your jumping cursor issue

any of the links will lead you to the downloads page for the application.
once downloaded this is what you should see on your task bar, see image below. an icon of a touchpad with a check mark on it.

Text jumps around on the screen


If you're still experiencing the problem (how frustrating if you still are !), I would suggest running a anti-spyware program such as SpyBot, or anti-malware program, such as Malwarebytes. Good luck.

I have a toshiba sattelite pro whose cursor jumps around the screen when i am typing. is there any way to stop this as it is really annoying?


Either its because you are hitting your touchpad while you are typing, or the little eraser mouse ball thats on the keyboard is faulty. If that is bad, you must replace the keyboard.
