Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard
Gateway M675 laptop XP 2002 Prof SP3
Appears that when typing text when hitting the "th" such as in the word, "the," the cursor "jumps" to a previous spot on the page. Also when hitting just the "t" itself.
My touch pad is "active" but I use a Kensington Trackball Mouse. Can't seem to be able to de-activate the touchpad.
On XP systems: Start/Settings/Control Panel. Once the control panel opens up, double click on "Mouse". In Mouse Properties, click on the tab at the top called "Touch Pad".
There should be a little box called "Tapping". Uncheck that. All the other options below that should grey out. You have just disabled the ability to select something by tapping on it. You can still move the mouse around, but you would have to press on one of the touch pad buttons to highlight and select any object. If you want to turn it back on one day, simply check that box again.
There is also a section on the bottom of that touch pad screen that's labeled "Typing". Make sure that there is a check mark beside the field "Tap off when typing". That means that when you are typing something, if you accidentally smack the touch pad with your hand, it won't be active. You can also set how long of a wait after the last key was typed before the pad is active again.
Also run a virus scan, Jumping around is not normal behaviour,
Also check regional language options in the control panel are set for the correct language,
Keyboard errors are associated with your region options.
Hope this helps
