Windows 7: Jumping cursor

04 Sep 2012   #1

Jumping cursor

I've been trying to figure this out and have read all about adjusting my touch pad sensitivity etc but that does not seem to work. Strangely, it happens only when I type a Y. Middle of a word, end of a word where ever there's a Y.

Anyone else have a similar problem?

I'm beginning to think it's a Windows 7 issue and not a touch pad issue.

Hi Jbatl, I have seen this behaviour before and it is almost definately related to touchpad. (Notice position of the Y key is directly above the touchpad and easily gets touched by your wrist).

To check if this is the issue, disable / turn off the touchpad - it should be an option in the (Synaptics or whatever) touchpad settings.

I was fortunate enough to have an option in my settings to disable the touchpad while typing. Solved my problem.

Hopefully that will fix things for you.
