Satellite P300: cursor jumps to different positions while typing

Hi all

I have a Satellite P300
I have problems when I type.

When I type using the keyboard, the first two words are ok, but then the words started typing in the wrong place, for example more away in the middle of the sentence, I type.

Anyone please help? Thank you


Hi dude

I had a similar problem.
By typing the cursor is everything at different positions, and I wasn't able to finish a sentence.

I though that there could be something wrong with the keyboard, but finally I have opinions that I touched the surface of touchpad accidentally while typing?
I disabled the touch pad using the fn + F9 and questions went

So maybe it of the same reason for you

  • Satellite P300 - cursor jumps back


    I have a Satallite P300 - 19 p and when I type after some works the cursur jumps to a place randomly in the text that I write. Is very annoying because I have to look at the screen all the time, I tried to type very slowly to see if I tap on a button by accident, but then it never happens.

    If anyone knows if it is a fault, all other computers that I use if I hit a wrong key, I just get a bad character not the cursor jump to a point prior to writing


    I think you touch the keyboard as you type and so the cursor jumps to another post.

    Therefore, you must disable the tapping function in the touchpad driver. After that, you can only use the touchpad for moving the mouse but not for the left clicking (tapping) more.
    Check Control Panel > mouse > advanced settings.

    Here, you can disable this feature.

  • NB200 - cursor jumps around the screen while typing


    When I type in MS Word or OpenOffice or any other text box on a Web site for example flushing prompt that identifies where the next word/character must be placed around the screen jumps.

    So when I type a line of text I then start another line below and then without reason, that the text cursor jumps to the top line. This inserts text in the wrong place, which is incredibly annoying!

    Any help or ideas greatly appreciated!
    Thesis writing will be more months if the problem persists! :)


    Here is the solution I've used and displayed a few threads down...

    Under the properties of the mouse, click on the "Advanced" tab, click on the pointer speed and Tapping settings, in the new screen click setting Tapping, on this screen, check the box that says disable Tapping during the key entry.

    You will suffer is not since the Cursur jump you met more...

    First, please check the Caps Lock key, when you post in capital letters it is considered SHOUTING and is also very difficult for people to read.

    Then check your laptop's operating manual or the support web site and see how to disable the touchpad integrated on the laptop.  Many people, me included, accidentally brush the touchpad while typing, so neutralizing him which will prevent from happening.

  • My cursor moves to the left while typing 'e '.

    I tried all the options like safe mode checking, it remains the same... I can normally type in the google search box or in the FB chat window, but this is a problem when I try to type 'e' in any text editor and the cursor moves upstairs to the left. Help me

    It is almost always the result of a faulty keyboard.

    If yours is a desktop configuration, it's simple and cheap.  New keyboards are cheap and widely available.  Tip, the more expensive keyboards are no better than the cheaper.  The only difference is the "feel" you prefer.

    If yours is a laptop configuration (AKA / laptop), it's a much bigger problem.  This must be done by a technician competent trust and they must use the right part.  There are many replacements of keyboard that are almost the same.  This is likely to cost at least $100.  In addition, and is not so nice to use an external keyboard.

  • Jump the cursor to Satellite P300

    First of all, I am a new Member and I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong forum, or if this issue has been addressed. A search led me to another post which dealt with matters that did not help my problem. If I missed something here that you please tell me the good post.

    My problem is with my new keyboard to laptop computers. I recently bought a P300 (PSPCCC - 06101C) to Canada before moved me to the Philippines. It came with Vista home premium 64-bit. I had a real Vista Ultimate CD and installed without a problem but it is the 32-bit version so I lost some performance, but nothing noticeable real. Since I installed Windows 7 32-bit also without any problems. Using the 3 BONES that I had the same problem keyboard. The problem is when I type the cursor will be jumping to another area of the body of text and a few times to a different text box. For example I might be typing in a text box, such as those that I am now and the cursor will be moves towards the middle of the paragraph or in the google search text box. It is very annoying because of the many corrections to be made while typing.

    I have not been able to pin point the problem to a specific key, but I think it's one on the left as the SHIFT key down or maybe even the space bar. I tried to change the locale for the keyboard, but that did not help. I read that I have updated the bios helped with some Toshiba keyboard problems but to get an update, I have to reinstall the original Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I am not prepared to do that if I have to live with this problem of keyboard or is there an easier way to install Vista 64-bit or even a new keyboard.

    Thank you

    Before you start writing emails or else disable touchpad by using the FN + F9 key combination.
    Maybe you accidentally touch it while typing, and the cursor will be moved to another place in the writing area.

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