Question about Computers & Internet

When I type on my laptop sometimes my curser will back track and I'll type in between words I have already typed or it will just stop and I'll have to click it again or it will page up in the middle of typing. Why is it doing this?

When typing, cursor jumps backward several spaces


Sounds like your mousepad is ghosting. This means it thinks you're tapping the mousepad as you type, which will make it type exactly where you nlast moved the curser to. First, try cleaning the pad thoroughly with a damp tissue, and dry it well... if that doesn't solve it, you could try adjusting the mousepad sensitivity controls on the control panel. Hope that helps.

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

Why does my curser jump when I'm typing a word. It jumps so it may type some where else.


Sometimes because the keyboard bent for the pressure on it or from somewhere on the shell of your notebook. So try not to put a hand on the notebook but just fingers on keyboard. Sometimes you hand slightly touch the touch pad and send the cursor somewhere else. you can try to cover the touch pad or disable it while typing.

When i am typing something my curser jumps and types over something I've already typed. example: when i am typing hing my curser jumps and typesomet


Have you found the answer yet? I don't know that particular laptop but if you use the touchpad, it happened to me because even the lightest brush against the surface with a stray finger would make the cursor jump all over and do the same quite annoying thing as you described.

usually means you are pressing your touchpad whilst you are typing.

and find the mouse option
you should be able to set it so that whilst you are typing the mouse will dissapear and then you wont have the problem

How can I stop my curser from jumping around whilst typing ?


Hello
Most probably because your 'Touch Pad Mouse' is touched by your palm (hand or something) while you are typing. Avoid contact with the mouse touch pad while typing.
Option 2:
If you have a centre moveable mouse on your laptop, start using it and disable the 'Touch pad mouse'
Best of luck!
