Internet for Beginners/Recovering pages & bouncing arrows!
I have a little Acer. When I type, the pointer/arrow thingy bounces all over the page. I can barely type one sentence without it bouncing elsewhere on the page so that I continually have to start over on a sentence. This problem makes typing a letter take much longer than it should. I've had this problem before with another laptop so it's not singled to just the one I have now. Can you suggest the best solution to fixing this problem? (but don't tell me to buy another computer please)
Due to this very problem, sometimes I mistakenly delete a site I'm currently using. How do I retrieve a webpage? I have windows 7. Pat,thanks so much for being there to help us beginners, it's much appreciated!
Hi, Christine! Ya know when I was growing up we didn't have this kind of tech problem because we didn't have computers back then!!! We also had to walk five miles to school in knee-high snow and...Never mind. I got sidetracked. Life used to be easier.
This category is "Internet for beginners" and not "Hardware/software for dem", but I'll have a go at your jumpy cursor since it might make your Cyberspacing more enjoyable.
Here's what we'll do first. Search on keywords: laptop cursor jumps. I'm betting you're not alone with this frustration. If you don't find your solution with those hits, come back at me and we'll go from there.
I would NEVER tell someone to buy another computer. My solution would be to trash them all and go back to #2 lead pencils and draw silly pictures and practice cursive writing.
Forgive my feeble attempt at humor, but if you don't laugh, you're cursor will go whacko.
All the best! Patrick.
