View Full Version : Frustrated

Can someone please tell me why my cursor disappears or jumps all over the page while typing? If I'm trying to type in a text box my cursor will take off or jump back to a sentence I've already typed. I'm going to lose it!

Battery operated mouse?

I thought it was that too so I bought the regular one and it's still doing it.

This might sound stupid, but if you're using a laptop there's a possibility that you're brushing over the touchpad and not noticing it. Or maybe you're hitting one of those stupid trackpoint things.

Just type something and see if you might be moving or touching something that the computer might be registering.

I thought that too. If I brush the touchpad it will move the arrow not the cursor. It definately is the trackpoint thing but while typing I'm nowhere near it.. lol
