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.

Does it do it if you disable the touchpad?

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.
