Watch out for the touchpad below the keyboard. You may be hitting it with the heel of your hand while typing, and this will cause the cursor to move. I've done it myself (still do, in fact). If you're doing a lot of typing, you might want to disable the touchpad and use a regular mouse. Most laptops have a switch near the touchpad to turn it on and off. You can also use the Windows Control Panel or touchpad utility program if one is installed.

Jumping Cursor


Are you using the touchpad or an external mouse?
Douse it jump around while typing or when you move the cursor?
If you are using the keyboard. try turning it over and tapping it LIGHTLY against your hand or something soft. There may be some dust or stuff between the keys.

My cursor jumps back when I type. I am not hitting the touch pad...help


You're probably having a jumping cursor where the cursor jumps from one place to another while typing an email or something. To fix this Go to control panel - hardware - mouse then look for the check box that you can tick on that says "Tap off while typing" and this should fix the problem.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a message.

Cheers~

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.

Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
