Question about Computers & Internet
My cursor jumps all over the place for no reason - if my palms are resting on either side of the cursor pad, it triggers a jump - also if the cursor is on the window in which I'm typing it jumps to where the cursor is. I have to scoot the cursor off screen in order to type, although this doesn't always solve the problem. I can't type a sentence w/o it jumping - anyone else have this problem? How can I fix this? thanx! I have just bought an Aspire7720G laptop and have the same cursor jumping problem - just installed the 'touchfreeze' software as suggested and it seems (fingers crossed) to have solved the problem. Excellent!! It has been driving me insane!! Many thanks for the help :)
If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

In windows 7 simply go to control panel, mouse,mouse properties, advanced tab, operations during key input: then place check marks on DISABLE TAPPING, DISABLE POINTER MOVEMENT, and DISABLE SCROLL FUNCTION. This should quickly cure your problem.

I just got off the phone with Dell and the problem was fixed. I have Windows 7 but this seems to be a touch pad problem. I had to download the most recent software for the touch pad and then I disabled the pad because I use a wireless mouse. If you don't want to use a mouse then you may create the same solution by turning down the sensitivity. Good luck. I was able to type this entire paragraph with out a problem :-)

I was having the same problem and what I did after doing some research was to roll back the driver that was installed to an earlier version (control panel/device manager/mouse/synaptics touchpad/driver/driver rollback) once that was done under control panel/mouse/device settings/settings i was finally able to adjust the sensitivity settings. This finally fixed the problem for me, I hope it helps you because it is a very frustrating problem.

I have suggested in the past that people with this type of problem download Intellipoint Mouse software, from Microsoft.
It's a free download, and so far, I have had a good rate of this solution working.
Here is the download page from Microsoft.com,
