Keyboard - Words in the wrong place

Hi the problem I have is that I am typing away in Word and then suddenly I am at the top of the page inserting words into what I have already written. The problem only seems to happen in Word and when I type at speed. Really, really annoying. Its not the touchpad or stick being toched in error as I have disabled both and still get the problem.

Your keyboard most likely has a stuck "x" key, try lifting it up so it is not stuck in the down position. If this does not fix the problem then the keyboard needs to be replaced.

Keyboard functions I will be typing away and all of a sudden the cursor will jump back into another space where there is a word previously typed. Is there away to get this to stop doing that.


This can happen if we are placing the hand over the touchpad while typing.. But if you are not placing the hand on the touchpad and while typing if you face this issue..
Unistall the touchpad,keyboard drivers that is already present in the device manager
Install a fresh copy from the acer website(www.support.acer.com) - the issue will be fixed

Keyboard jumps the words I type


this may be either a keyboard error, a short in the mouse pad a loose connection on either or even both. Although I cant walk you through the step by step on the Asus, to take it apart there is away around it.

Turn off the onboard mouse and before you do that install or use a different mouse. here are some others who have had the same problem and what they did.

I think the keyboard is making short circuit. You can try to send it back to the manufacturer.

What you can try before sending it to the manufacturer, is updating the drivers.

What does the insert key do?


Press and the text you type will over write what ever you have on the screen. This is typically used in most applications to "type over" existing text without moving the other letters/numbers/characters around.

This is my example of how the insert key works.
hit the insert key and position your cursor at the "w" in works.
Now type WOW!!.
You should now have:
This is my example of how the insert key WOW!!.

Clever these programmers. :)

Keep in mind it depends on the application you are running also.
Have fun!

Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!
