Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by SECOND SUMMER TOURS, Dec 12, 2007.

  1. ANYONE ELSE HAVING PROBLEMS WHILE TYPING (LIKE THIS MESSAGE) WHERE THE CURSOR
    JUMPS AROUND ON ITS OWN ... SO THAT YOU HAVE TO KEEP BACK-TRACKING TO THE
    CORRECT SPOT TO CONTINUE TYPING ANYTHING.

  2. I have seen and heard of similar with wireless mouse and keyboard.
    If that applies, try new batteries.
    Also it there anything else nearby that may be causing a signal?
    Do not limit to normal wireless devices.
    Many electronic devices cause signals, particularly electric motors.

    Also, please do not type in ALL CAPS.
    ALL CAPS is more difficult to read and is considered shouting and
    rude.

    Lots of times, problems like this are the result of an overly sensitive
    touchpad. You probably should tweak the settings for that and make sure you
    have all the drivers for it.
    (Sorry: I don't use laptops a lot, so I can't be more specific than that.
    But that seems to be the conventional solution to a problem that's reported
    a lot.)

    I am experiencing the very same problem on a Fujitsu Seimens AMILO. It is
    driving me crazy! Any help offered would be gratefully received. The T and R
    keys appear to cause the cursor to jump. It is infuriating!

    My best guess would be the keyboard or touchpad/mouse driver.
    See if the manufacturer has any new drivers available for Vista.
    Lots of hardware acts up with Vista.
