    My courser jumps all over the screen. While in the middle of a word it jumps back to the beginning or middle of the word. Then the next thing I know I can't find it because it is up or down in a corner. It just jumped to the beginning of the second sentence before I brought it back. I t have tried everything suggested on other help sites. This is truly horrific. I even bought a new mouse. I have an Acer laptop. It is only 41/2 months old. The problem was here when I first started using it so I doub(note the "t" is up between the "I" and "have". So I doubt it is spyware. I can't believe no one has an answer. Please.....if you do and can help me, thanks. I am no computer expert so I need easily understandable explanations.

How to Fix Touchpad on a Laptop

<p><span>The touchpad of your laptop is a most important and frequently used input device. If your touchpad stops functioning, it may be difficult for you to use your laptop. Touchpad normally faces following issues. <br /><br /><b>Laptop Problems and Their Solutions</b><br /><br /><b>Problems with the driver</b><br /><br />Computer hardware communicates with your computer through real time software called driver. Drivers control computer hardware. It is possible that virus or human activity may damage the driver. You can check your driver's status through computer's device manager. You'll see a yellow color indication under "Mouse and other pointing devices" heading. You can download new driver form your laptop's manufacturer website. <br /><br /><b>Problems with connection</b><br /><br />Touchpad's connection with motherboard is delicate. It can be broken due to heating and other inner problems. So, if there is no problem with the driver, then the connection of the touchpad to the motherboard may have broken. <br /><br /><b>Misuse</b><br /><br />Touchpad of the laptop is the most delicate input device. Some people tap on it too hard or use a shrill tool as an alternative of a finger. This can damage the pad. <br /><br /><b>Fn Keys</b><br /><br />Touchpad driver is slightly different from the other devices that need drivers to function properly. It came with an operating system that you don't need to re-install it. Laptop keyboard comes with many functions than the common keyboard. It has Fn keys which are called function keys. Sometimes, your laptop's touchpad stops working because you accidentally hit some one of the Fn keys. You can follow these instructions to make your laptop touchpad working again. <br /><br />1- Search for Fn key on your laptop keyboard. It is commonly located next to the Ctrl key. <br />2- Now search for F1 to F12 keys on the laptop keyboard. These keys control sound, brightness of the screen, wifi etc. They are located on top of the keyboard. Look for the key which has icon on it that looks similar to the touchpad. <br />3- Let's take an example of Toshiba laptop. It uses F10 key to enable or disable touch-pad. Hold down Fn key along with F10 key to enable the laptop touch-pad. <br /><br /><b>Cleaning the laptop touch-pad</b><br /><br />It is a good practice to clean your laptop touchpad. To clean it, take a cloth dampened with sprit. Wipe your touchpad off with that cloth. <br />Laptop touchpad work best in moderate temperature and gasping environment. Moisture, excessive heat, can damage it. Try using your laptop with tidy hands. Sweaty and dirty hands can cause problems. <br /><br /></span><span><span> </span></span><br /><span><br /> </span>

There is either physical damage or your motherboard has failed. Are you sure nothing was spilt on it? It will have to be opened to check it.

Mouse pad stopped working

This may have been caused by software or by physical damage to the pc. Try using a different mouse or the keyboard and run system restore, try reinstalling drivers. It may be physically damaged and require repair.

Keyboard and touchpad stopped working

Just check that your computer is not attacked with any virus. You can use Avira Antivir for best free antivirus. and install spyware terminator for checking any spywares.
If you dont have any virus or spyware then check the drivers. Just go to device manager in your system and check that drivers are installed or not. If not install it once again.

I cant give you exact solution because the question looks generic.. If any of the above is not helpful to you then please get back to me.

Toshiba satellite touchpad & keyboard stopped working

As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.

Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.

Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.
