How can I change sensitivity of the mouse pad?

    Every time the palm of my hand barely touches the mouse pad the cursor jumps
    to the position of the pointer. This happens while I typing and I have to
    stop, erase the error and replace my pointer back to the correct position.
    If I can change the sensitivity where it takes more of a deliberate act to
    move the pointer it would be very helpful.

    Sorry. This is a newsgroup dedicated to questions about Access, the
    database program in Office Professional. It appears your question may not
    be related to these subjects. The Microsoft help system is not all that
    clear and may have misdirected you here.

    It is best to ask your questions in a newsgroup dedicated to the
    subject of your question. You should find people better able to address
    your problem there.
    http://tc2.atspace.com/0013-HowToSearch.htm#FindNewsgroup may help.


    Note: It is always best to indicate the name and version of any
    program(s) you may be using when asking a question and also indicate the
    operating system (like Windows XP or 98) when you ask a question.

    This is a hardware issue, and you should address it with the manufacturer or
    vendor of your notebook/laptop computer. It is relatively common if you have
    replaced the Operating System provided with your notebook computer but not
    had the drivers to install... the touch pad may get set on it's most
    sensitive setting and be a real pain.

    If that's the case, obtain from the vendor or manufacturer the device
    drivers that work with the new OS, or revert to the original OS which has
    the drivers (usually there is a factory recovery CD supplied with new
    laptops, but sometimes you had to make a startup diskette to enable
    recovering).

    In any case, as Joseph Meehan told you, this isn't the venue to find an
    answer to your problem. It just happened that I had experienced something
    similar... and in my case, after the need was past to run a server OS on the
    notebook, I happily used the recovery CD and no longer had the problem. (As
    an aside, my current notebook, a Compaq vintage 2005, has an on-off button
    so you can completely turn off the touch pad when using a mouse.)
