My Cursor jumps while Typing

My cursor jumps to random places on the screen or activates links while I'm typing.  This occurs no matter what program I am in.  I have acer (aspire 5315) and have never had this problem until withing the last month.  I get the automatic updates through windows. I have read through several of the solutions to similar questions on this matter but yet I remain jumping about the screen.  I have tried updating, rolling back all drivers but still no luck?  Can you help me or should I just buy a MAC?

Hello sandldy3,




No, keep your PC ;-) I have seen this alot with laptops! Lets give this a try: Click the Start button> click Control Panel> click Hardware> and then click Mouse. Click the Pointer Options tab, and then do the following: Uncheck the Hide pointer while typing box. Hope this helps you. Let us know either way. Make it a great day!

Hi,

I have seen some others with the issue yet not 1st hand. Try Acer support as I suspect it is a known issue.
