While typing the cursor will randomly go somewhere else and it's becoming more often now, it started rarely when it was newly purchased, but after a couple of months, it became more often. my Acer is less than 6 months.

Re: Aspire 4315 keyboard problem
This is usually caused by the user brushing against the mouse pad or tracker point, some laptops use ase smart software to detect when you are typing whilst others use a disable switch which disables the trackpad/mousepad

I have this kind of problem before with my laptop dell vostro1400, all the technician did was clean the underneath of the keyboard and the touch pad connector to the keyboard. He advise me that if the problem occurs again I have to buy a new dell keyboard..
My laptop does this and so does my Linux computer. An optical mouse needs to work on a featureless surface. My oak grain desk is not good. A mouse pad with a picture is also bad. Use a clear textured surface - like a one colour mouse pad... Or Try a new mouse - a cheap one will do for testing. The tail on your mouse may be breaking. (Yes, they do that...)
It seems to happen with optical mice on random pattern surfaces.
Mine does this quite often when I am typing. I have discovered that my hands are touching the mousepad while I am typing and will randomly put the mouse in the middle or just about anywhere in the document I am typing. The next time this happens take note of where your hands are and if they may be slightly touching the mousepad. It took me quite some time before I figured out what was happening.
this sometimes happen in a laptop where the touchpad is unawarely hit causing the cursor to transfer location. that is why the typing is pointed to other location in the document. please make sure that your workspace is not having any of this same scenario
My experience: cursor suddenly moving backward when i was typing, or moving somewhere else on the page. I would be typing and text suddenly would get highlighted. I followed someone's advice to disable the touch pad. Since I do have a mouse & key pad that was all i had to do.
HOW TO DISABLE THE TOUCHPAD FOR ACER 3680 AND OTHERS??? PRESS Fn +F7
Yep, it was that simple. At first I made sure i typed without my fingers or palms touching or near the touchpad. I noticed it seemed to stop or happen less. Soon as I disabled the touch pad all is back to normal. Yet I spent hrs trying to find out how and there were all these posts by people suggesting downloads and other more complicated things etc..
