brand new yoga 13, random cursor movement while typing.

2013-04-01, 15:21 PM

The cursor keeps randomly repositioning within the text while I am typing, making it very difficult to use the laptop for work.  This is a major problem with the device and I am not sure if a driver issue or hardware.  I saw a post about a new alps driver from 2011 but current product has a synaptics touchpad in it.  any help?

hi harveyb,


Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.


The erratic movement of the mouse cursor might be due to the high sensitivity of the touchpad.


Can you try to:

1. Go to the Control Panel (large icon view) > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings

2. Under the Synaptics Settings, go to Pointing > Sensitivity > Palmcheck and set the palm sensitivity near the maximum settings and test.
