Preferred Solution: Locks-up, typing jumps and slow, browser crashes, must hard boot

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Locks-up, typing jumps and slow, browser crashes, must hard boot

I have tried additional procedures so therefore this log is of no further use and the topic is now closed......

I do have a Windows XP Home Edition Reinstall disk

Over the last few weeks, my PC has been having fits running slow, locking up, 1 BSOD (KERNEL.STACK_INPAGE_ERROR), stuttering sound, windows getting locked, mouse pausing and freezing, etc. It frequently requires hard boots as it won't respond to Ctrl-Alt-Delete. This happens in safe mode as well.

The CPU usage is often stuck at 100%, even with no applications running. I can't see any pattern to it. It can run fine for a few hours, then suddenly get stutter and lock up.

The only thing has changed recently is that a week or two before this started happening, the CMOS battery was giving error messages on reboots, so I replaced it. I have not been able to see anything wrong in the BIOS settings. Device Manager gives no errors.

I haven't seen any signs of malware, but just in case, I have attached the normal logs. I run ZoneAlarm Free and Microsoft Security Essentials. Virus scans have been negative. I also ran Lavasoft Ad-Aware, but it found nothing other than harmless cookies.

I have cleaned/vacuumed out the system (which I do regularly anyway). I removed and reseated all the cards and memory. I checked that all the fans were working.

I have run CleanUp! (also a normal thing on my routine maintenance). The disk is not fragmented. I removed what programs and autoruns I was sure about.

I ran Chkdsk and it fixed some file ... Read more

A:PC running very slow, locks up, crashes

Bump.

I think I put this in the wrong forum since it's looking more and more like a hard drive failure. I get several BSODs a day now, and the PC sometimes takes several attempts to reboot.

I have a Dell Precision T5400 with dual quad core (2.29 GHz) processors with 16GB of ram and I am running a 64 bit version of windows 7 ultimate. I have only had the computer about 6 months but I haven't really had problems with it, just upgrading it to the way I want it.

The problem just started a couple of days ago and I thought it was maybe because I had been putting off installing "Tune Up Utilities" on it. That program seems to work wonders on getting everything to run smoothly after a full operating system install and all the programs you want installed all at once along with it, not to mention drivers, updating media player, internet explorer, installing flash player, etc., you get the idea.

Mainly it started most with all the ads completely covering the pages on Ebay. I thought Ebay just went crazy selling ad space for profit but this is too much. In my opinion the amount of ads will adversely affect the main purpose of Ebay since they cover most of the important information about the items for sale and their descriptions . Also, whole new ad pages are popping up almost every time I click on a link but instead of going where I should it pops up another full page ad to have to get rid of. Another problem that has been getting progressively worse is the slow typing. I finally fixed Explorer to surf the internet by resetting everything to factory presets but the pages are so slow to load and even after loading they don't want to scroll up and down... Read more

A:Computer wants to run so slow, especially in browser and typing

You are rightly concerned about malware infection so you need to start running scans to check this out. Which security programs are installed and have you run full system scans? SAS anti spyware and Malwarebytes are good free scanners worth downloading and running. This is a priority because the sooner you are onto malware and virus problems the better the chance of removing them.

I don't share your enthusiasm for Tune up Utilities and would uninstall it but you've probably paid a hefty subscription for the year. CCleaner is a useful free utility worth looking into but firstly check thoroughly for possible infection.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1526.

My cursor jumps around when I type documents. I don't think it's a touch pad issue. I do think it's a software glitch. It appears to happen most frequently when I get to the end of a line of type, although that is not always the case.

The motherboard has been replaced and it still happens.

What should I do? I'm about to pitch this laptop out the window!
 

A:Cursor jumps around when typing

Sounds like a similar problem I have using an Acer 5335-2553. Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling the driver and/or software associated with the touchpad to see if that helps?

Also, have you tried changing the touchpad sensitivity and/or other settings?

I have a HP pavilion dv2000 laptop about 4 months old. I have the "jumping cursor" problem. The cursor will jump around the screen when I'm typing (I've had to correct this email 4 times already. Turning off the touch pad stops the problem but so does typing on another computer. I've tried a number of things to no avail. It is an intermittent problem in that it doesn't do it every day. When it does it, it does it bad.  I have experimented and I'm sure that I'm not touching the cursor pad as I type. I do often touch the case in the area around the touchpad. I'm guessing this is a grounding issue but can't prove that so far. I like this laptop but because of this problem, I'm unlikely to buy another HP. Any ideas, anyone? Alex  

A:cursor jumps around when typing

If you are swearing off an entire comptuer manufacturer because one product you bought from them had an intermittant issue that could be fixed with a single service, then more power too you, but that is a poor basis for condeming an entire brand. As far as troubleshooting your issue goes, you might have a grounding problem, i'll back up your diagnosis there, obviously the issue will be hard to verify via phone support, if you call into HP, and are in warranty, you can have the computer sent in to let them check. They would probably replace the chassie or touchpad itself for free under warranty.

Has anyone figured out why my cursor would jump to another spot on the page when I am typing text? I looked at previous postings and I didn't see a solution. It can happen to me in any program I'm using, but I mostly see it in Microsoft Outlook 2003. It can jump anywhere; I've seen it jump when I wasn't even typing, just sitting there thinking about what to type. I have a Lenovo laptop and run XP on it. This has happened in Windows Live email as well. This problem happens a lot. I looked at my mouse settings under my control panel and I don't have a choice in pad sensitivity, but I don't think that is the problem with the jumping.
 

A:cursor jumps while typing

My old HP laptop was doing that for quite some time before it eventually bugged the crap
out of me to finally take it apart and give the keyboard a good cleaning.
That fixed it. Nothing as irritating as typing a sentence and it's putting the characters
in the middle of another sentence or paragraph or where it feels like putting it.
It just wore my patience down.
Good luck.

My second computer is a Toshiba Laptop also running Win7. I'm not a touch typist and frequently the cursor will jump to another location within the item I'm typing. I don't catch this until a few letters hve been typed and then it requires correcting and retyping. I thought at first it may be my touching the pad while typing but lately I have been very careful to not touch the pad. I normally use a wireless mouse and I tried shutting off the pad but cannot find out how to do it. Any ideas on what might be causing the cursor jump and/or how to turn off the pad?

A:Cursor jumps to another location when typing

Please try the following:
Go to Control Panel>Mouse and the "Pointer Options" tab. Uncheck the "Snap To" option and apply. See if it helps any.

You can disable your touchpad either with a built-in button near it, or sometimes a keyboard key combination (FN key) or via device manager.

Hey guys, im posting this to try and help my mother. She is running Win7 Ultimate 32 bit, here's her problem (well one of many teehee)

often when she is trying to type in email (web email), websites, even MS word, the typing jumps over the page she is on. ie, when typing the word (for example only) "THAT", the "TH" is fine, but the "AT" jumps somewhere randomly up above into a previous line or word she has typed. Basically I guess its not the letters jumping, but the cursor moving randomly as she types.

Hopefully my description makes sense, has anyone else ever experienced this or know of this issue?

I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite M-65-S9093. I am using Windows XP home edition. I have a very strange problem. When typing, frequently when I type the letter "t" in my email, the cursor will jump to a previous line immediately following the "t" keystroke. At first I thought it was Outlook 2003, or Microsoft Word 2003 which was my text editor, but it occurs with any text being typed including this post and in the Notepad application. This is very frustrating since it takes forever to type anything when the cursor jumps to another line with almost every "t" that is typed. In outlook it frequently jumps to the Send button and i depress the next key before realizing it and the email gets sent mid-sentence. Here it keeps jumping to the second word in this post (have, between the "v" and the "e").

Any suggestions? I have tried using compressed air to clean under the keys.

it maybe the touch pad - are you using the touchpad at all - my wife had the same issue and we had to remove a lot of the touchpad functions
you could easily be brushing the touchpad - also sometimes if your paln is near the touchpad and typing can have the same effect

ont of the FN + F keys should disable the touchpad - try that and see if the probelm stops

I have Dell Latitude D510.  Recently the cursor has been jumping back when typing, so I find the last few letters appear earlier on in the document.  It's not a Word issue, as happens sometime when typing in Google.
Touchpad only has basic features activated.
Seems to relate to when I rest on the laptop, as if I hover it seems ok - but this is impractical & a bad typing posture!
Other non-Dell forums talk of several causes and several cures, none of which help!
Any ideas, or do I need a new laptop?
Thanks

Hi..

I've been having this problem a lot over the past year or so where I might be typing a sentence (and I think this only happens when posting at message boards) and sometimes in the middle of a word the cursor will suddenly jump to another place in the paragraph. As an example, it happened just now. When I was typing the word "sentence" above, in the middle of typing the word, the cursor jumped up to the title and the "ten" part of the word got mixed in with the word "typing" in the thread title. Sounds more complicated than it is, just wanted to give that as an example...and oh, it just happened again haha, while I was typing "give." I'm not sure if this happens to me in Word too, but I don't think so. Anyone have an idea why the cursor would just randomly and suddenly jump to another point in the text?

thanks

Hello All,
I'm having an issue when typing text. It occurs when typing emails in Google and when typing in Word documents. It happens whether I'm connected to the Internet or not. As I type, the position of the cursor jumps positions, either to a previous point in the text (which results in text being inserted at this earlier point in the doc) or it jumps out of the text window compeltely (i.e. while typing an email or on Facebook). Does this sound like a familiar virus problem? what can I do?
Thanks

Hello,

I am having a problem with my laptop cursor jumping while I am typing. The laptop is a Toshiba and about 3 years old. The last time I had it in to be cleaned (files), the shop said they could not reinstall my windows Vista as the serial # on the back was rubbed off, so they sold me a windows XP for an alternate operating system. Ever since they installed it, my cursor jumps while typing. The store closed up and I was not able to get them to repair the problem. I have looked on line and seen this can be caused by an number of things including drivers which I believe to be the problem. As the computer is a lap top, the mouse driver is set as a PS2 which does not reflect the touch pad (but it does work). I wonder if there is a different driver that would cure my problem.

Thanks in advance,

Dave

A:Cursor jumps around when typing on Dell inspiron

Check your operating system's mouse pointer settings in Control Panel and try lowering the speed under the Pointer Options tab. When set too fast, the mouse may jump all over the desktop at the slightest touch. How to instructions with screenshots here.If you have a wireless mouse, low batteries can result in weak, mixed or no signals that can affect its functionality so start by replacing them. If you are using a ball mouse, remove it and clean the rollers as dirt and gunk will cause erratic behavior. If its an optical mouse, "jumpiness" and "jerky" movements can result if using it on a glossy surface or reflective mouse pad. In some cases using multiple or uneven mouse pads can produce the same results. As a test, try placing it on a piece of newspaper or rubberized pad to see if that resolves the problem.If that does not help, confirm that the mouse works on another machine. It is possible the mouse could be defective or has gone bad. Another thing to try is to use a different mouse or a PS2 adapter if its a USB mouse.If this is an issue on a notebook or laptop, please see Disable Touch Pad of your Laptop; Avoid Erratic Cursor Movement When Typing.Mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems in WindowsMicrosoft Notebook Optical Mouse TroubleshootingTroubleshooting Optical, Infrared, Laser, Image Sensing MouseStandard mouse TroubleshootingOptical mouse TroubleshootingTroubleshooting Mice, Keyboards & TrackballsTroubleshoot a wireless mouse that does not function correctlyTrou...

I just received my new laptop for work. I have listened to co-workers complain about the skipping cursor for over a week. I attempted to use my laptop during a meeting and it took me so long to type on Google Docs, because of the number of times the cursor moved to another area, continued typing the word I was writing, deleted parts of a sentence or a whole paragraph.  However, after reading numerous complaints in this forum, I read about one issue about grounding. If you rest your hands on the board surround the mouse area, I believe that the weight of your hands interferes with the mouse inset and it does ground out the mouse and other connections.  If I pull my hands up off of the board completely and type, I have absolutely no issues.

Hi all and thanks, in advance, for your help.

I have experienced the following issue several times and from multiple computers. It has happened in various apps (outlook 2003 and 2007, word 2003 and 2007 among others) so I am thinking maybe it is a Windows issue, and maybe specifically with the mouse??

At random, while I am typing in a document, or in a message window like this, the text will go from the current line to imputing where ever the mouse pointer is positioned. It is very annoying. I have experienced it on at least three different XP pro sp2 (at least) pc's. I also have a Vista laptop but don't recall, with any certainty that I have experienced it on that. I am up to date on updates. I have mcafee running and have checked for spyware (I read somewhere that spyware could be the culprit). I have checked the mouse properties and don't see anything that jumps at me.

Has anyone else experienced this? Does what I am typing make sense? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Toshiba notebook about 2 years old now and it is xpsp2 and operates fine with no issues of malware etc. However, I type rather fast and am frustrated by the fact that as I am typing many times during the day my cursor will leave the position in the sentence that it is in and jump and allocate the letter that I just typed in a totally erroneous part of the work that I am doing. I then have to delete the letter and move the cursor down to the place where I want to continue typing.
I am just wondering if there is some adjustment that I can make on the notebook that will deal with this issue. BTW, it has not just suddenly started doing this as it has gone on for some time and is really irritating.
I just thought that I would post and see if any member has suggestions or has also come across an issue like this.
