Acer AspireOne Keyboard Already Degrading?

I have owned this Acer AspireOne ZG5 for only about 4 days, and already, the keyboard/mouse performance seems to be degrading. That is, the following problems seem to be more and more frequent:

1) keyboard input cursor jumps far away from current entry point, with no press of (for example) arrow keys; it is possible that it tends to go near to where the mouse cursor is (I am not sure).

2) once every few hundred key presses, a key auto-repeats 2-7 times (roughly), even when it was pressed only quite briefly

3) space bar (more rarely, another key) fails to respond to press

4) I get a mouse pad click (equivalent) when the keyboard is slightly flexed by the weight of my hand near the mouse pad, or even by a key press.

I have had similar symptoms on other laptops, but the reason I bought this one at Fry's was that at first, it seemed free of these problems. Now it is not so free. It is still within 15 days, so unless we know the Acer is plagued with such problems, it might be best to return it and get another one.

Check your mouse settings in control panel
and make sure they are correct
maybe they are set to sensitive
otherwise i would recommend setting back to factory settings
make sure ac power is plugged in when doing this.
I have the same pc and i have no problem like that.
let me know if this solved
if the problem persists after setting to factory settings i would return it for exchange.
please rate

First install the driver for your wireless keyboard. Then connect the USB for your wireless. Make sure that you already have batteries in your keyboard and mouse or in other cases fully charged if rechargeable. Wait for it to be detected by windows. Once detected, on the USB press the connect button then followed by the connect button on the keyboard then the connect button on the mouse. Then that is supposed to work already. Hope this helps.

Several keys on keyboard not working - Acer AspireOne

If you have warranty they can fix it for you, but if not, you can take the laptop apart, and clean the contacts of the keyboard youself. Which would be the same thing they would do ("they" the warranty people). But is not sure, you can take it to a repair shop for inspection.

My keyboard when typing sometimes places the letters being type in a part of the message already typed instead of just continueing to type correctly

I have this happen to me all the time when typing on a laptop keyboard; sometimes my thumb hits the mouse pad, and depending on where the cursor is at that time, I type in an area where I already typed.

My recommendation is to either be careful when typing on a laptop keyboard, or if you're able, install an eternal keyboard (USB). That should take care of the problem, if I understand your question.
