Phrases jump to another line

I have a Dell Laptop Latitude C840 and when I type on e mail every few lines, the words or a phrase will jump to another line. It is very frustrating to cut and paste every time.

The Latitude you have most likely has the touchpad plus the dreaded pointing stick. The problem you are having is also known as "wandering cursor" where your cursor will move around the screen on it's own. Try these solutions:
1. Go to Dell.com and download the latest driver for your touchpad. In the touchpad properties, try to disable the pointing stick.
2. If all else fails, I have removed the keyboard and disconnected the cable for the pointing stick which always solves this problem. If you decide to take this approach, you should know your way around the inside of your laptop, take anti-static percautions, etc. You can download a service manual for your laptop from dell.com.

Unfortunately you would need a better gfx card.
External gfx cards do not really exist so you would have to buy a new laptop with better gfx possibilities I'm afraid.

Think what you are doing is tapping the mouse pad with your thumb, and moving your typing position. It use to happen to me all the time until I purchased an HP laptop that had a mouse shut off button on it.

All you have to do is pick up your thumbs when typing. Feels strange, but only to prevent your situation.
