I don't know if you mean that your cursor suddenly moves as you are typing? If so, it is likely your touch pad is too sensitive. I have a mouse w/mouse pad but never disabled the touch pad. So i disabled the touch pad and it solved it for me. If you want to be sure it is the touch pad being over sensitive, then type a paragraph but keep your fingers and palms far away from the touch pad. If the problem improves, like it did for me, then the touchpad is too sensitive. You can go into the settings for the touchpad to change the sensitivity setting to make it less senstive and see if that works and it does not then press Fn +F7 keys to disable the touchpad.

My mouse keeps going to the top left of my pc every time i go to move it-ive tried moving usb ports-but its still doing it


well after more research found with LinuxMint16 you have to tweeking the polling, so with that here is what found to do from a forum:
first off get to a command line and switch users as root like this -
su - root
type in your root pwd then click enter
type in modprobe drm_kms_helper (then click enter)
type in echo N> /sys/module/drm_kms_helper/parameters/poll (then click enter
type in echo "options drm_kms_helper poll=N" > /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf (then click enter)

after all that typing you might want to reboot, and when i did all that, my mouse freezing stopped. it worked for me all now no more freezing.

Hi,

Try holding down Fn and Pressing F7.

Also, could you check if an external mouse will work? If so you can try to update your touchpad drivers in Device manager. (Type device manager into search)

My keyboard keeps writing out of order - putting words infront of stuff i have previously typed - toshiba Satellite laptop


Does the laptop have a touchpad below the keyboard?
Usually the hand position when you type is such, that it's very easy to involuntarily lighlty touch the touchpad with the base of your thumb, usually the right one, when you move the hand over the touchpad, mostly in the up-left direction.
This causes the cursor to move to some place up and to the left, resulting in the next characters you type being put in that place :)
Try to keep your hands a little bit more above the touchpad when you type. Also, many touchpad drivers have settings for ignoring light touches/drags, try looking into these settings in your pointing device properties.

Problem with keyboard on acer aspire one


Try another keyboard cause it sounds like the keys have gone bad on it. Hook up another known working keyboard and if the problem goes away then you know that some keys are bad on the original keyboard. If the problem doesn't go away then that means that some key mapping has been going on and you would have to go into the control panel underneath the keyboard icon to resolve it.

My cursor darts to a corner without moving mouse


do you have Word with that weird little paperclip helper? some computers have presets that make it (or your cursor) move out of the way so you can see what you're typing as that many people (not including me!) touch type while looking at the screen and the cursor being in the way is VERY distracting to them.

Letter writting problems


Do you use a laptop or some sort of keyboard with a mouse pad? My son used to have that problem when he would type as his thumb would accidentally hit the mouse pad and move the cursor. We solved it in a very low tech way by taping a notecard over the mouse pad when he was using the computer. Depending on the manufacurer, there are ways to turn off the mouse pad while continuing to use a mouse.
