Question about Toshiba Tecra M2V-S310 Notebook
While typing an email or word document the cursor will jump back into previously typed sentences. It seems to happen after I hit the space bar.
I recently acquired this problem after having my computer serviced. I have been using it for over a year with no difficulty. I read somewhere that this is a microsoft problem, one of their service packages. The question is, which one?

If you type like me, it's probably your wrist or the heel of your hand contacting the touchpad -- below the keyboard. An experiment to test this might be for you to cut a small piece of foam (like an old mousepad) and place it over the touchpad. Type away! If the cursor doesn't jump around, remove the foam and type a bit more. If the cursor jumps around, it's likely caused by contact with the touchpad.
I write from experience as I had a Toshiba Satellite A127 -- and found that my right hand would contact the touchpad and sometimes move the cursor around.
I hope this helps!
