You are probably hitting the touchpad below the keyboard with the heel of your hand as you're typing. I do it myself sometimes, and many people I know who had the same trouble have found that was the cause for them as well.

What I suggest if you're doing a lot of typing is to disable the touchpad and use an external mouse. Then you don't need to worry about the touchpad, and a regular mouse is (at least for me, anyway) more comfortable for extended use. If the touchpad on your computer doesn't have an on/off switch near its top edge, you can disable it through the Windows Control Panel (or touchpad control utility if one is installed).

Samsung labtop cursor jumps around when typing causing all kinds of problems including highlighting and erasing entire lines or sentences!


Press Fn & F10. This disables the touchpad. You will have to use arrows or a mouse to move the cursor. This helps when you are doing a lot of typing. Press the same keys to enable the touchpad when you are finished typing.

Our Acer laptop seems to have a mind of its own. For instance, when typing documents or e-mails, the cursor will suddenly go back to the middle or beginning of a typed sentence without warning, which is...


your mouse pad is too sensitive. I despise laptops just for that sole reason. I have a USB mouse on my MDG and the mouse pad on the laptop turned off. I am also saner now..

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.
