    Touchpad pointer

    Hi all,
    Does anyone have the following issue with the touch pointer in Windows 8?
    Sometimes while not touching the touch pad on my laptop the pointer will suddenly jump to a different part of the screen or web page.
    This is not a major issue just a little annoying, it doesn't do it all the time.
    Any ideas please?

    you could try reinstalling the drivers.

    first i'd check to see if their is an updated version as well.

    if you list the model i will even do the search for you and post the link

    Hi thanks for the reply, I have a Dell Inspiron 1750 Laptop running Windows 8 Pro.
    the problem only started after a clean install of Windows 8 about a month ago.

    You could try uninstalling the Scrybe in Programs after installing Synaptics driver, Scrybe has some extra functions but it's not fully developed.
