The most common reason that your cursor skips around is that you are touching the touch pad when typing. Some are more sensitive than others. On my Toshiba I had that problem, but it has a Fn key that allows me to turn off the touchpad. Problem went away when I went to a mouse instead.
Had a client with a Dell with the same problem. I had to actually physically disconnect the touchpad and her problem went away.
Now as for the first problem, (the HP), I'd say you have a stuck key on the keyboard. It would make that noise.

Seems after I have typed for a few minutes, the letters I type are slow to print or are just skipped altogether.


This is one of two fixes, believe me. Turn your laptop over and tighten all available screws. If this does not work you'll need a new keyboard and they are quite affordable and easy to change. Thanks, Dana

Typing skips letters at random nocerain etter is mssed just agriv


Attach an external keyboard and see if your problem goes away. If it does, then you have a defective keyboard on your laptop. You should have a professional install the keyboard so as to not rip or damage and connector cables, these typically are made of mylar and rip easily.
Either that or save yourself the cost of buying a new keyboard from HP and paying for someone to install it and just use an external keyboard.
You should check your warranty or call HP and see if there was a recall or something that could possibly pay for the fix for you.

I have had the same problem....


It sounded like a hardware/firmware problem.
Have you tried to have a BIOS upgrade for you computer? Just go to HP's website and find the drivers download page for this computer and download+install the latest BIOS. Feel free to visit digitalsupporttech for getting help.

Missing letters and spaces


hello,

This happens because the laptop stores extra charge and cause some issues with the keyboard and mouse like skipping letters and erratic mouse pointers.
By removing the battery and the power adapter you actually drained the charge stored completely. It is a routine operation you need to perform on you laptop once a month.

Hope that help !

Cheers !

Another keyboard skipping until I removed the dead battery, now it works.


Turn off the touch pad mouse, there is a button to do that. If the problem is still present then remove the mouse driver and go to Synaptic web site and download the most current driver. HP is the place to get the driver though. For some strange reason the problem is present more under XP than it is under Vista. On a Vista the problem is fixed. Either you can disable it or use external USB mouse instead.

Zd8000 keyboard is skipping letters and spaces


I also had this very frustrating problem and found that removing the battery that would no longer hold a charge solved the issue. Go figure. Haven't bought a new battery yet to see what that does and I run my computer on AC power all the time now.

Problem with the laptop keyboard (HP pavilion zd8000)


Firstly give yout keyboard a hoovering gently, then if no change it could be the keyboard driver, this will be either on a recovery disc supplied with the laptop or on a recovery partition on your harddrive. You won't need to do a complete recovery, just a re instalation of the keyboard driver
