It might be that your palm is brushing across the intel touch pad (mouse pad) as you're typing?.. try holding down the function key (Fn) (on the lower left corner of the keyboard) while pressing F9 (this activates the "Toshiba Flash Cards Menu" and is a keyboard shortcut to toggle off/on the touch/mouse pad. You can turn it back on this way too. I almost always use a conventional USB mouse with my laptop for this reason and because it's faster than fiddling around with the pad, IMHO).

When typing, the curser skips.


Even though you may not even be touching the touchpad, touchpads and the tiny ribbon cables that connect them to the motherboard (directly under the keyboard) can be so sensitive that they activate the cursor just from typing alone.

Here's a great little app you can download that disables the touchpad ONLY while keystrokes are being made. It's saved a ton of my clients (and myself) alot of grief. If it doesn't solve your problem, then you can repost and move ahead with further help in tracking down the problem.

When i am typing something my curser jumps and types over something I've already typed. example: when i am typing hing my curser jumps and typesomet


Have you found the answer yet? I don't know that particular laptop but if you use the touchpad, it happened to me because even the lightest brush against the surface with a stray finger would make the cursor jump all over and do the same quite annoying thing as you described.

While im typing, my curser skips back into the middle of my sentences, and i have to retype my whole sentence again...what is causing this to happen and how can i fix, thank you


if it is the same thing that happens to me you need to shut off your touchpad (mousepad) when you are typing as your fingers or palms cause the curser to jump if you touch it while typing

I have trouble when typing. The letters skip all over text.


Do you have a small button on the top side of the touch pad that will allow you to turn off the mouse? I bet that you are accidently touching the mouse pad with your thumb while you are typing, and this is causing your problem. I have the same problem if I do not turn off the touch pad on my laptop.

Good luck, and please rate me, OK?

Keyboard curser bounces around


Are you bumping the touch pad while you type? This may be causing the curser to move around. This laptop is known for its sensitive touch pad.
