Windows 7: Problems with curser movement

Problems with curser movement

I'm using an Asus netbook as I travel...and a larger HP in my office. Both have Windows 7 os. On my Asus, I cannot type more than a word or two without my curser jumping back into what I am typing and putting characters in the middle of what I have already typed. A partial solution is to move my pointer to the end of the line I am typing on and I can usually type an entire sentence without the problem repeating itself. Does anyone know what is going on...it's very frustrating. Thanks in advance for any help with this.

hi samplemaven, and welcome to sevenforums,

maybe a part of your hand is brushing against your mousepad as you are typing?

try control panel >> hardware and sound >> mouse (near the top under 'devices and printers') >> somewhere in there you may have a setting that controls your touchpad sensitivity - try playing with the settings to ensure you don't get any unwanted cursor movement.

I didn't think that could possibly be the problem, so to prove it...I typed this complete answer being very careful not to touch the pad. Guess what??? I think you're right! I have typed this entire paragraph without a single error, so now I'll go to the sensitivty setting and fix this bad boy. Thanks Mickey...I had an idea it would be a simple fix...but not this simple.

I guess this Noobie has another question. I looked for hardware/sound but couldn't find that icon. I also looked under mouse and keyboard and couldn't find what I am looking for. Can you give me another option to look for? Boy, typing without skipping is great...but I'd like to rest my palms on the computer base!

okay - try typing mouse into the searchbox at the bottom of your start-menu.

click 'mouse' in the control panel results that come up - should be right at the top.

I'm not trying to be a pain in the rear here, but I can't find the trackpad sensitivity settings anywhere!

i suppose it all depends on your particular hardware and drivers.

My Asus Eee PC 1001PX only has the following tabs under mouse: Buttons, Pointers, Pointer Options, and Hardware. I hope I can find "sensitivity", but in any case...I now know how to type now without moving the cursor around!
