Sounds like you have a sticky up arrow key,or you have a virus on your comp.Try booting in safemode by turning on your computer and tapping the F8 key while booting,then choose safemode.Once you are in Windows,open the program you are using and try your text document again.If it works correctly,you may have a virus.While you are in Safemode,run your virus scanner,then reboot your computer to see if the problem is solved.If it does not fix it,try running System Restore back to before the problem started.Good luck :)

This normally happens with the performance of your computer. I need more information like the OS version. Do you type on Microsoft word etc
What is the hardware configuration of your computer etc?

In the meantime as a workaround. try using msconfig (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310560)

Try a clean boot using msconfig

Cursor jumping around while typing text


You wouldn't have some live insect in your keyboard have you? I've seen Microwaves do strange stuff when infested with some tiny insects BUT I doubt it's the case with your machine. I am trying to recall a Keyboard key that I sometimes accidentally press when trying to create a document using Word, etc which does the same or similar to what you've described. It pees me of as I don't know which button I hit, it is one of the main reasons I avoid Word, Outlook, etc. Please let us know if solved, cheers.

While typing text my cursor jumps back 2-3 lines


The keyboard speed maybe set too low for your typing skills, try increasing the keyboard speed.
Open the Control Panel - Keyboard - Speed tab and move the speed slider to the max speed.

On my laptop, the cursor jumps unpredictably to previously entered text.


The space bar 'contacts', internally are dirty or defective. You will probably need to replace the keyboard or seek from manufacturer a 'cleaning process ' for this keyboard.

The cursor jumps backward often while I type, and writes behind where I am, lines behind.


You're probably hitting the touchpad with the heel of your hand while typing. Many people do it without realizing it, and the computer is just moving the cursor to where it thinks you're telling it to go. If you're doing lots of typing, you may want to plug in a USB external mouse and turn off the touchpad. This eliminates the cursor jumping, and a regular mouse makes moving around a document and selecting text easier.

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.

Cursor jumps erratically


Most likely, your wrist is gently touching the touchpad, and your computer is interpreting it as a 'tap,' and it so happens your cursor was located several lines up.
Or if you use a separate mouse, is it on a wood or uneven surface? This will cause it to jump up those few lines and again, your wrist (or if you have big hands like I do, the bottom of your thumbs) will tap it.
