Hi guys,

I recently reinstalled this laptop with Win 7 Ultimate (no Drivers CD available). I got all the drivers installed but the cursor is jumping around when I type my text in Word or Outlook even though I don't touch the touchpad at all.

Please enlighten me on how to fix this coz I search all over the internet without avail.

Can you get into the sony website and download the proper drivers and intall it. It could be the driver problem.


Some thing for a smile: check for the presence of any cat around home lol.

Does it do it if you disable the touchpad?

Drivers need to be reinstalled if that doesn't help, get the latest patches from micrsoft and try . that has solved this issue with printers as well mouse.

Hi, it seems like what I need except that my OS is Win7 32 bit and it won't accept the x64 bit driver above.
Please help me find the drivers for x32 bit. Thanks heaps

It's not very likely that drivers will fix this problem.

Have you tried to disable the touchpad to see if it still happens then?

There isn't any touchpad icon in Control Panel.
Plus, I do need to use the touchpad, so disabling it is really not the solution.

@edbedb: Sorry I misunderstood your suggestion about seeing if it still happening when touchpad disabled. The answer is I don't have the option to disable it.

"I do need to use the touchpad, so disabling it is really not the solution. "

I am not suggesting it as a solution. It's part of the diagnostic process.

Please see my answer above that ...
Here is link to the drivers site and you can see that only 64 bit version is available for touchpad drivers.

No special drivers are needed for the tochpad. In fact, if there is any software installed for it, I would remove it. At least for now.

If you have a USB mouse handy (it's easier but not necessary) you can plug it in then go to the Device Manager and delete the touchpad device to test.

As soon as I install this the cursor nightmare is gone. This works with all other laptop brands as well.
