X230: Pointer jumps away when lifting finger from touchpad

Guys I'm having this issue with my touchpad, when I slide towards a button on the screen and lift my finger up to hit the click button, in most of the cases I mis-click because it seems the pointer jumps away when I lift my finger. This is very irritating.

 

This was default with clean install Windows 7. So I installed the drivers i.e. UltraNav, but that made things worse! Now it seems like the resolution has dropped and the mouse cursor is twitchy. I played with the UltraNav settings, made things a bit better, but yet still worse than the default configuration I had with Windows 7. Oh yeah, the jumpiness of the cursor remained after lifting finger from touchpad. So I removed those drivers again...

 

What to do now? Seems like a software issue, but that jumping drives me nuts.......

Install the latest Synaptics drivers, set everything to default and increase touch sensitivity a bit. That'll make it much better until Lenovo gets their act together.

 

The latest Synaptics drivers were just released.

I actually did.

 

With existing drivers or not, the cursor still jumps when I lift my finger from the touchpad after a slide movement.

 

This REALLY needs a fix.

 

Come on Lenovo.

 

Someone else any ideas?

Did you remove the old drivers or just install over them?

I previously had the UltraNav drivers installed, but they made things worse, so I already had them uninstalled.

 

The drivers you mentioned did not make any difference. The cursor still jumps away a few pixels after lifting my finger from the touchpad after a swipe.

Odd, as mine showed a dramatic improvement - from unuseable to useable but not perfect.

Well, in my case, as experience I'm better off using no drivers (at all).

 

But I really want a solution for that jumping of the cursor.

I find that touchpad is most usable with latest ultranav drivers, medium senisitivity and whatever 2finger gesture things you like.

In Windows settings have enhanced pointer precision checked (important) and mid-high pointer speed.

 

Still though, it feels horrible to use
