I had that problem with an older Toshiba laptop. Turned out it was the touch pad mouse built into the laptop. I think it may have been getting set off from the slight sweeps of the palm of my hand. I did a little research and found a later driver for it. fixed the problem for me. perhaps you should go to Gateway's support site and check for the latest driver for your touch pad. good luck

To FaberTech I use an external wireless mouse. I find I have an over all better control using the wireless mouse over the internal tuch pad

I am using the HP Presario model C700 laptop that I got back from the pawn shop now because the GateWay laptop went belly up and croaked. I think the GateWay popped a voltage regulator. It is deader then a door nail.
Anyways the HP Presario had os 1st gen Vista in it when I 1st got it. So I wiped the partition (I don't care for the 1st gen Vista) and installed the Win7 Home 32bit os that I have. Everything was (still is) fine except for the same problem that I had before of the cursor jumping around, moving to different spots in the text that I am typing in and so on. How can 2 totally different laptops made by different company's have the same problem? The only thing that the 2 laptops have in common besides the same type of hard drive (a sata hard drive) is the operating system. So does anyone have any ideas short of buying a new operating system?

touchpad too sensitive, cursor jumping

Cursor Jumping Problem (NOT a laptop!)
Hey there, I have the same problem that a lot of you guys with laptops have except that the cursor jumps at any random time (not just when typing) typically to the edge or the corner of the screen. This is extremely annoying when I'm gaming. Also, I'm not using a laptop so the problem doesn't...
