    First of all,try to update the driver of your touchpad from the manufacturer's website. If it doesn't solve your issue then hide the mouse pointer trails. For doing the same, open "Control Panel" and then type "Mouse" in the search box which appears at the upper right corner. Now click "Mouse". After that click on "Pointer Options" tab. Under visibility, uncheck the option which says "Display Pointer Trails". It will hide your mouse pointer when you will type anything.

    Hi,

    If there is no problem with the touchpad like sensor problem, then you can install a fresh copy of updated touchpad driver.

    To do so , click COMPUTER on the desktop, Select MANAGE, Click DEVICE MANAGER, click MICE AND OTHER POINTING DEVICES , click DRIVER, click UNINSTALL, then UPDATE DRIVER to install latest driver for the touchpad.

    To remove the mouse trail which is another way to handle the issue you are encountering,
    click "Start" ,open "Control Panel", type "Mouse" in the search box, click "Mouse",click "Pointer Options" , Under visibility, uncheck option "Display Pointer Trails".
    It will hide your mouse pointer while typing.

    Thanks.

      • Open Mouse by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware, and then clicking Mouse.
      • Click the Pointer Options tab, and then do any of the following:
        • To change the speed at which the mouse pointer moves, move the Select a pointer speed slider towards Slow orFast.
        • To make the pointer work more accurately when you're moving the mouse slowly, select the Enhance pointer precision check box.
        • To speed the process of selecting a choice when a dialog box appears, select the Automatically move pointer to the default button in a dialog box check box .
