Office 2007 and Microsoft 7 conflicts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently I had to reinstall Windows 7, my copy of Office 2007 did not transfer over so i had to reinstall it.  Now when iI type, my cursor jumps all over the place,  it goes up one or two line or down and even over to the left on the same line. It also automatically highlights and deletes my work.  Anyone have have any ideas as to what is causing this and how to fix it. My computer is a compaq laptop, dual hard drive

  • Hi Sharon

    The most common cause for this type of behavior is when typing, the hand palm brushes against the Touchpad. Most newer touchpad devices have software options that can help prevent this problem.

    It may be that when you reinstalled the newest driver/software for the touchpad device was not installed.

    Please contact Compaq support for the latest drivers/software and check the instructions for setting the options available for the device.

    Hope this helps,

    Thank You for using Windows 7
