Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

The cursor jumps around on my E-105-S1402, suddenly moving to an entirely different place on the screen or moving back in a typed line so what I'm typing suddenly is inserted in a previuosly typed sentence. What is the story? And is there a cure?


Answers :

My issue does not include touching the touchpad. I have even gone so far as to turn it off and just use a HID mouse. What I tried and so far it seems to be working, was to go out to the control panel mouse controls and adjust the mouse speed to a slower rate. I am still playing with it but it seems to be better. Hope this helps.
Yes.
Most probably, you are involuntarily very lightly touching the surface of your touchpad with the base of your (usually right) thumb.
Some touchpad drivers have special settings to ignore very light strokes to avoid this effect - try your pointing device settings in the control panel.
If yours doesn't, you just have to remember to keep your hands at such an angle as to avoid contact with the touchpad. A soft wristrest may help, as it elevates your wrists a bit; gel-type wrist support is my favorite.
Good luck :)
