Having problems with your HP Pavilion DV6700T Notebook PC ?

I am having a problem when I type and the cursor moving

\015 I am having a problem when I type. I can be typing and all of a sudden, the cursor will jump back to something I've already type and continue my typing in that place. I have to stop, erase, and retype. This is very aggrevating. I am having to constantly watch what I type so I won't find myself typing into something already typed. Can you please help?\015

Answers :

This happens when your hands get to close to the palmrest and your wrists are actually causing the cursor to jump to another spot. Go to the control panel > mouse> settings > highlight the touchpad listed and select the settings button. Look through the entries and there is a setting for palmrest sensitivity. Turn down the sensitivity so your hands and wrists don't trigger a cursor movement. The hardware and drivers are fine, this is a setting adjustment.

I purchased recently a new (never-used) M5-1 (1370478) classic M-type keyboard, from clickykeyboards.com with a tiny trackball just above the cursor keys. It's great ! but with a string attached... The problem: the trackball moves the cursor on the screen only left-right, and barely, but not altogether zero, up-down. The mechanical parts seem tot function perfectly: good contact between the rubber ball and the ball-bearings and excellent and intricate movements. There's obviously something wrong


Based on my experience with this type of keyboard, most likely, there's a problem with the track ball itself. To isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:1. Try connecting your keyboard into different USB ports of your computer. ... PC Desktops
