SOURCE: Keyboard Cursor Jumping

I have been having the same problem for some time now with my Acer laptop and windows vista.
What worked for me was changing a Mouse setting in the Control Panel.
Go to Control Panel -> Mouse. Then go to the "Tapping" tab and make sure that the "Tap off when typing" box is Checked

Hello !!

I have seen this problem many times and the most common reason is Spyware or Malware.

So, download, update and run from these sites: and With Malwarebytes, be certain to choose the free software.

Hope this helps.

Touch pad scroll is not working

The reason why your cursor is jumping all over the screen is because you are touching it by mistake with your thumb or hand somehow. You can turn the sensitivity down ans set two finger scroll (and other options) for your touchpad - go to control panel > mouse > device settings >

If you do not have device settings, you need to download the official drivers and software to enable all features. The driver you have is probably the default win 8 generic one. Let me know the model number of your laptop and I can help.

The cursor jumps backward often while I type, and writes behind where I am, lines behind.

You're probably hitting the touchpad with the heel of your hand while typing. Many people do it without realizing it, and the computer is just moving the cursor to where it thinks you're telling it to go. If you're doing lots of typing, you may want to plug in a USB external mouse and turn off the touchpad. This eliminates the cursor jumping, and a regular mouse makes moving around a document and selecting text easier.

Hi, i have an Asus K52J model, i purchased it in the end of August so its only a few months old. I am studying abroad in Italy for the semester and am starting to run into some problems. It started out...

In my case, the cursor jumps around when I'm typing. It could jump one line up or back to the start of the line.

Anybody with an Asus K52J ever encountered this problem?

The cursor on my AUSUS U50A is frozen. All other functions seem to be OK. How do I unfreeze the cursor?


Thank you for your query it would seem the touch pad has been locked

on most Asus laptops the key to unlock is to press the fn key + F6 key (the F key will have a rectangle on it and a finger or hnd pointing to it).

Please try and advise of the outcome

I hope this has been useful

When typing cursor keeps jumping

Generally there is a setting (CONTROL PANEL, MOUSE, Touchpad Tab) to either enable a feature like PALMCHECK or to disable the touchpad while typing. If neither option is shown, then try updating your touchpad driver
