Satellite A100-165; while typing the cursor jumps to the other place


When I write with the keyboard sometimes the cursor jumps to another location.
Just this moment, he jumped at the entrance of 'topic' of wire.
It's pretty random where he jumps but very annoying, I'm running a Toshiba satellite a100 165;

Anyone got any ideas of what this could be?



I had the same problem
I t has not noticed that I touched the surface of touchpad accidentally while typing.
This is the reason why the cursor jumped.

You can disable the touch pad using the FN + F9 key combination

In addition the BIOS update would also be desirable.

Good bye

  • Satellite A100-411: one or the other DVDs cannot be recognized


    I work with my new Toshiba a100 411 since the end of February here at I m happy w / my choice.
    The only point is that I found that one or the other DVD cannot be recognized by the Pioneer K17A.
    Need me possibly new drivers?
    Thks in advance for yr help.


    Hmm I n t think so.
    As far as I know that these drives support not all CD or DVD and it s nothing unusual that one or the other DVD may not be recognized correctly.

    Sometimes a firmware update could allow the reader to recognize more kind of CD and DVD, but on the other hand, no one can say that this update might help.

    I can agree to have a bad display when the signal quality is lower, but it is very annoying to often have a blue screen and PC reboot!

    I think that this can be corrected with the latest display driver. Please visit the Toshiba download page and install it.

  • Satellite A100 - will not charge the battery


    I have ned to help. My Satellite A100 will not charge the battery. He works the power adaptor for the led indicates charging status, battery shows 1% of loading tatus information, but none does change - no loading any time. When disconnected everything just stops off like normal desktop.

    I've already put battery in and out, made upgrades to the antivir software, makes Toshiba controls, tests, but what ever he did did not any change. If there is no way for restoration of battery how to check what the problem is I have no second battery or AC I can always buy new batttery but I don't know if the old one is broken and weather new would work properly?

    Best regards

    Hi pawelg,

    I agree with the user above. The battery can be charged only up to 500 times, and after that, it must be replaced. I think it's the case now, I mean that everything works correctly on the AC adapter so I think that the battery must be the reason for this.

    By the way: you can buy a new battery to an authorized service provider. ;)

  • Typing issues (cursor Jumping... moves my text to another sector while typing)

    Someone please help with this problem!  Whenever I type my cursor jumps around and I have to keep going back and deleting and retyping.  Help, please

    I have a sony VAIO and this problem is driving me crazy

    Hi Tim,.

    You're using a laptop by chance?  If so, you can solve this problem by taking a quick glance to your touchpad options.  If you use Windows 7, click the Start button, type mouse in the search field and click on enter.  There should be an option to change the settings of the device for the TouchPad.  On many models, Synaptics is the creator of the TouchPad and has a tab of its own in the mouse properties.  If you do not see these settings, you will need to install the drivers for your manufacturers Web site.

    For Dell machines, you can go to the website.  Select your model and you will find the driver in Input Device Drivers.  For Compaq/HP machines, go to, select your model and find the devices, keyboard, mouse and input.

    I would like to turn off the tap option and raise the sensitivity PalmCheck option.   These are the first options I always change when I get a new laptop; Otherwise, I have the same problem.

    Hope this helps,


  • While typing my mouse jumps in Outlook, the menus appear as if by magic...

    I have a new problem, for the most part in Outlook, but not totally.  When I type, e-mail address or mail content menus as magically appear and stop my typing.  As I try to select items in the top menu bar, the other menus appear.  Everywhere I go that my slider menus appear.  I can not any work done as they stop at my ability to type.  Some are just the menu formatting, some bring new dialog boxes, some are menus, I've ever seen.

    I restarted Outlook, the computer, it doesn't seem to help.

    I looked at my touch pad settings, mouse settings, but I don't see anything that looks like, I should change...

    Thanks for ALL THE ideas.


    Try to disable the touchpad while you type. If this does not help, then maybe you have a defective touchpad. Contact technical support of computer laptop mftr. for the repair. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • Satellite A100 (PSAAR) ID_ERR_NOTINSTALLTVALZ_MESSAGE to the VAP configuration


    I have Toshiba Satellite A100 (PSAAR) and the installation of VAP (value added Package) of the site Web of Support from Toshiba, I get error ID_ERR_NOTINSTALLTVALZ_MESSAGE and then the installation ends.

    The proposed solution is to do a BIOS update, and it did not work for me, as I said in the topic (I've updated with bios-20071126124517, which is the package recommended for my laptop model). I use Vista 64 bit in the way, and I try to install VAP to eliminate the unknown hit-and-run driver (TOS1901 if I'm not mistaken) in Device Manager. I worked on this problem for a few days now and I'm really tired, so I need your help as soon as possible.

    Thanks in advance...

    > I'm using 64-bit Vista by the way
    Have you tried to install the VAP 32 bit on 64 bit Vista?

    If Yes, then I m afraid it won't work, and I guess this is the reason why this error message appears during the installation procedure

  • Satellite A100 - defective speakers, gives the crackling

    I have the Toshiba Satellite A100 model.
    My speakers do not sound right.
    Left speaker does not work.
    They give a crackling.
    Audio, video, doesn't sound right.
    Whenever I play a song it gives a feeling of speakers are blasted.
    When I turn the volume down they sound a little ok.

    Advice needed.
    I need to replace speakers or should I update the drivers?
    Thank you...

    After reading your ad, I think the speakers are defective and must be replaced.
    You can try to change some sound settings to see if something will change.

    In any case, I think driver has nothing to do with it and you need new speakers.

    Have you tested with headset or headphones? How does it work?

  • Satellite A100 - options to close the lid for the laptop are not available

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 - it came with Vista - I carefully cleaned the HARD drive and installed XP - I deleted the partitions etc. and started with a HDD in a perfect state of cleanliness.

    Then, I downloaded all Toshiba drivers that are available for my model.

    When I close the lid it still fully powered - there is no option to go into sleep mode, Hibernate etc in the options of "close cover" - the only option is the "status quo".
    How can I get the standby extended/standby/power options back?

    Your help would be appreciated


    Did you installed Toshiba Power Saver utility?
    These options that you can find.

    I know this because I'm doing a test of speed before and after the opening of the laptop using my PC.

    Computer laptop & PC are not yet in the same room!
    The wireless network connection is disabled, disabled 1394 connection and only LAN OK.

    the laptop is o.k. otherwise.

    Any help appreciated.

    To be honest, the whole story is a little understandable and strange for me.
    Your laptop is connected to the router with a LAN cable or what?

    Sorry but I don't quite understand you. What is the speed with and without a cell phone?

    By the way: did you clean install of the OS before you start using this laptop?

  • Satellite A100-383 does not - the battery is not

    Hi all

    I own a satellite A100-383 (PSAARE) that does not start when the battery is totally empty, or if I leave without the battery of the day to the next. The battery will charge not façade is and all the lights are off. I should always have a load on my battery and don't let not unplugged more than 2 days.

    If for some reason, my battery was completely empty, Plug and unplug the power supply from the wall outlet would make all the lights increase and charge the battery again.

    Unfortunately, I went on vacation and I forgot my pc unplugged and it does not charge or turn on. ? The headlights are off. Tried my dear old method to connect the unit several times with battery and without it with no luck... I could see a connection for a second or two, but I wasn't fast enough to plug in and they are off.

    I would be so grateful to you all if you give me a help to put it on my pc. Once I have it on the load and back I'll buy a new battery for sure.

    I look forward to reading your advice.

    Thank you all in advance!
