Have a new G550 w/ Vista Ultimate. When keying on laptop curser jumps at random. Tried everything to fix, update Alps pointer and pad drivers, re-install Vista, changed processing priority to HIGH through Task Manager..nothing fixes the problem. Do not know what is causing annoyance and checked all over internet to if I am alone on this. Other computers have similiar problems but still nos suggested fixes work for me. Anybody...any fixes ? Thanks if you can help ASAP.

My new Lenovo G550 laptop has a touch pad problem. While I'm typing, the cursor jumps backward into the line of type -- or into a whole different place on thepage, then continues typing into the new location. It' driving me crazy, obviously. I installed a wireless mouse and the trouble still remains.
Before I drop-kick this thing off the desk, can anyone suggest what to do? I'm NOT encouraged by these posts I've been reading about Lenovo help and support, etc.
Is there a way to actually TALK with tech support???? - G

gloria711smith, welcome to the forum,
you probably need to reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad tapping function or turn it off in the touchpad properties. (Control Panel > Mouse).
You'll find a few more cases of this having happened if you search the boards .
Hope this helps

Hi I have recently purchased the G550.
My cursor jumps when I am typing in Word or and email, it can go to message box, back to start of line etc.
Checked internet for solution and all suggest I am touching the mousepad when typing - I am definitely not!

I had this problem for ever. After a lot of frustration and research, what I found was, this is common error for all kinds of Windows laptops that have a touchpad.
I found a work around, which was to install a utility called "touchfreeze" from Google code. This utility will lock down the cursor while typing and so will avoid the jumping around problem. This is a small utility that sits in the system tray and does not create any overload for the laptop and it does the job well.
See this article for more details about the cursor jumping problem and the solution: http://www.mywindowsclub.com/resources/4845-cursor-jumping-laptops-with-touchpad.aspx
