Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Notebook ?

Curser jumps while typing

\015 I am a teacher with a Satellite pro A200. There a lot of us with the same computer and we all seem to be frustrated with the same problem. While I am typing, the cursur jumps to different places and the writing then reads as gobble - de- gook! We have tried lowering the sensitivity of the mousepad but this has not made ajot of difference. I swear it changes if i just wave my hand over the mouse and make no contact at all!\015

Answers :

Hi there.
The best thing to do is to uninstall the touchpad drivers, you can do this by going to the control panel look for add remove programs or programs and features, in that window look in the list for "synaptics" and uninstall it.
That should clear up the problem, if you cannot find synaptics in the add remove programs please post back.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
