Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook
This is usually caused by the thumbs coming in contact with the touchpad below the spacebar when typing. Make sure to keep your thumbs raised or resting lightly on the spacebar.

When that problem happens to me I turn off my pointer pad. I have a Compaq Presario and it has a button to shut off the mouse pad. When I simply shut it off it does not jump when I am typing. I don't know the originating cause but at least I can make the annoyance go away when it would bother me the most. Hope this helps.

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.

Check out this post. It's for an Acer Aspire 5315, but probably the same or similar for yours. It's straight from Acer tech support.

Please make sure you remove any dirt and/or fluid found on your touchpad. Even the tiniest grain of dirt may result in this. If you are using an external mouse, poor quality mice may cause this type of behavior.

Have a D600 myself and found anothe post that worked for me!
First, my problem was replying to emails the cursor would jump when typing usually back up into the middle of the text somewhere.
If this is similar, read on.
First, go to Dell's website, downlaod the latest driver for the Alps Touchpad: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R113813&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2514&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=7&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=17&fileid=149404
Download the driver but do not install yet. Note, this is for a Dell Latitude D600, Windows XP. Vista may have a different driver.
Open Control Panel/Mouse/TouchPad Tab/Touch Sensitivity Button. Open Touch Sensitivity, adjust below the halfway point on the slider. Try different settings, you may also want to check the "Tap off when typing" box.
If you do not show these properties as above, you probably don't have the latest driver installed. In that case, install the driver you downloaded above then come back and refer to the instructions.
I spend 90% of my day on this D600 and really love it, not a speed demon, but light enought to carry with one hand and is a great email/browser machine as you probably already know!
