Vista Home Prem. making laptop mouse/cursor go haywire

Recommended Posts

Well as the subject states, I recently installed Vista Home Prem and everything seemed good. I then noticed that the cursor would jump all over the screen like im dragging my finger on the touchpad back and forth real fast. It'll only do this when im using the touchpad and at times it'll even right click and bring up the menu like I pressed it. Even when typing it will jump around and put text in between different words and such.

Any ideas on how to fix this? The laptop is a HP Pavilion dv5020us. I already updated most of the drives on hp's support site but still no luck.

I have that same laptop, actually. when i installed vista, i updated to HP's driver for the touchpad. its made by synaptics by the way. the new driver is GARBAGE. ruined the ability to use it. go back and get the XP driver for the touchpad and install it, it is compatible with Vista actually, and works a lot better.
