    After my laptop has been on awhile, often when I'm typing the cursor will jump all over screen. Anyone suffer from this and might know a fix?

    Are you bumping the pointing device?

    This might sound stupid, but check whether your wrist or sleeve isn't accidentally touch the touchpad of your laptop while you type.

    Yeah, sounds like you're rubbing the touchpad. Disable it and see what happens.

    Duh! :oops:
  8. Do you use a separate mouse or just the built-in touchpad? If it's a separate LED mouse, sometimes some fuzz or hair (especially if you have a cat around) will get up into the LED hole and the reflected light will cause the cursor to go mad.

    That's what They want you to think! But really, They're in that touch pad, spying on him! Why do you think I don't use a laptop? Reagan started a conspiracy to put cameras in touch pads, but they never perfected the tech man! It causes glitches some times, but They just tell you it's your fault. The more you blame yourself, the less you're looking over your shoulder for Them!

    my mouse on the laptop sometimes just goes to the top of the screen and stays there. I just unplug it and plug it back in.

    But yeah, if its only when you are typing i assume you are just leaning on the touch pad..
