When I use the keyboard on my dv-7-1245dx I can't type a sentence without moving the cursor towards where I was typing the cursor jumps around This happens in documents, e-mail and other activities. It was a problem when I bought my computer with Vista. Now, it's a major problem with Windows 7.
Jumping cursor problem is one of the common problem especially seen in Windows Vista and Win 7 usually when you type in word or outlook. My previous experiences that I noticed that there is no solution for this problem right. You may need to try different steps, but can not say that we're going to fix it.
First of all, you can try these two steps that have worked for me in the past. If it does not solve the problem, there are other measures that we can try.
- Go to Control Panel ---> mouse---> Options of the pointer , and then uncheck "Hide the pointer during the strike". If this does not work then try turning off the score button if you have a
2. If step above does not work then you may have to download and run this small program called Touchfreeze
Some solutions may include measures directly related to changes in the registry that can cause serious problems if not used correctly. Use the following steps at your own risk
Original title: why you (Microsoft) ignore the fact that the cursor jump around for text entry is a global problem that occurs on several platforms and applications? It is not a problem of mouse and you know it.
Hi Ony Parsons,
1. What is the brand and model of your system?
We met this problem and most of the time that this can happen on laptop and when you increase the sensitivity of the touchpad.
You can try to reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad and see if it helps.
Some options may vary depending on the touchpad software you are using.
a. click on "Start" and click on "Control Panel."
b. double-click "mouse". The "Mouse properties" window opens.
c. go to the tab "device settings". Click on "settings".
d. examine the left panel of the 'Properties' window and expand the "sensitivity". Click on "Sensitivity to touch."
e. reduce tactile sensitivity in moving the slider to the right, to the label of "heavy touch. Experiment with different levels of sensitivity until find you one suited to your needs.
f. click "OK" to close the "Properties" window Repeat the operation with the control panel "mouse". Your new touchpad sensitivity settings are now saved.
You can also consult the following article:
Hope this information is useful.
When you type, the cursor jumps around. How can I correct this situation?It is a very common problem when users become familiar with a new laptop. Either your palm/wrist/cuff/bracelet is touching the touchpad as you type or the touch pad sensitivity is set too high and reacts to strong strikes.
As noted previously, this is a very common problem and users are usually completely unaware they do even when it is pointed out to them.
- Someone to watch you while you type to see if you accidentally touch touchpad of the notebook.
- Go to the control panel mouse configuration and reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad.
- Make sure you use the latest version of the driver from the manufacturer of the laptop for the touchpad and update if a new becomes available.
- Disable the touchpad entirely in favor of a wireless laptop mouse.

When I type, the cursor jumps around. Most of the time he'll be back in the part I typed before. And for some reason, he does it almost everytime I type in the word you. I have run virus scans and she always does. Any suggestions?
By chance, your computer is a laptop or netbook?
I found that when typing, my wrist is sometimes contact with the touchpad causing the cursor to jump on. Something specific on how you type 'you' might make your wrist touch the touchpad. If this is your case, there is a program called 'touchfreeze' which disables the touchpad while you type.

Can you help me with a solution? I'm not very technical, but it can follow the detailed instructions.

First, download the Setup driver Synaptics following on the link below and save it in your downloads folder.
Then, open windows control panel, open programs and features, right click on the entry "Synaptics Pointing Device Driver" and choose uninstall.

1. what kind of mouse do you use? Wired or wireless?
2. is it a laptop or desktop?
3 when was the last time it was working fine?
I suggest that you check if the mouse settings are correct.
You can read the following article and check.
Put the computer to boot and then check if the problem persists
Follow step 1 in the link below,
How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
If everything works well after a clean boot, you can deduce that some third-party services are at the origin of the problem.
Continue with the remaining steps to pin-point on the third party service.
After find you the program that is causing the problem, you will have to perhaps to update or install a newer version of the program, if you rarely use that you should consider uninstalling the software.
Important: n ' forget not to put the computer to a normal startup follow step 7 in the link.
I can't type a paper letter or in school without the cursor jumps around. It just happened again! ... He jumps around and I have to watch very closely... he already did 3 x now, just try to type these 3 phrases! What is wrong w / my laptop? and how can I solve this problem!
Just a guess, you could have a setting on a place where some keys move the mouse. That would be used in the case that you do not have a mouse.
Other that I can't help you much. If you are using a desktop computer, try to unplug the mouse and see what happens. If you're on a laptop, it could be that the trackpad is having problems.
Vista, why my cursor jumps around on the screen without reason?
You are using a laptop with a touchscreen? Chances are good that you accidentally touch the touchpad while typing, and that moves the cursor. Go to start / Control Panel / mouse and see if there are controls for adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad or to disable the touchpad while typing. Go to the web site of the manufacturer of your and download the latest device drivers, firmware, and software for touchpad you and your mouse (if you also have a mouse - you may have to go the manufacturer of the mouse for these drivers, if she did not come with the system). New updates can offer options that did not exist before like the ones I mentioned.
This happened to me also and I bought a separate mouse and disabled the touchpad and the problem disappeared - but he had me past for awhile until I finally figured it out by typing differently (with my hands up higher so the Palms do not touch and had no problem). Even if this isn't the problem, update the drivers, firmware or software can solve the problem on its own.
If none of the works above, we will need either to run a complete troubleshooting procedures (post back and I'll meet with them) or the touchpad or mouse is defective and must be replaced. You can discuss these last with the computer manufacturer when you talk to them (if you talk to them).
I hope this helps. If you have any questions along the way, come back and I'll do my best to answer.
