Typing and keyboard issues

When typing sentences I have stumbled upon a major, and very annoying, problem. As I write a sentence the "blinker" (As I am no computer expert I do not know the correct termonology. It is the line after you write a letter/word/sentence)As I write the blinker randomly moves in between words/sentences and starts writing there instead of in the correct place. As a result my sentence would have another part of a sentence in it. Example: Today is Mond nyoutsideay and it is rainy, yet sun It is suppose to say, " Today is Monday and it is rainy yet sunny outside." Also if I go to, lets say Google, and type in a search. While I am typing it refreshes the page or redirects me to another page or it enters what I have put into the search before I have finished typing in what I am searching. Another problem is as I write for some reason part of the text goes blue, before I notice, and then deletes part of my sentence.I know how to retrieve it back but it has been happening pretty frequently. I think it may be where the curser is placed. I have noticed that wherever my curser is, is also where the sentence merging is happening. Though as when I place it out of the text box the refreshing/redirecting happens. I hope you can help me fix this problem. It really is a nuisance.

If you're using a laptop, it sounds like the trackpad is too sensitive, so that as you type, when your thumbs touch the pad, the cursor moves.  You can adjust this easily in settings/preferences.

    Do you use an external mouse?

    But do you use an external mouse on the laptop that has the problem?  If you do, then turn off the trackpad.

I purchased a ACER laptop last April. My problem am typing a sentence the curcer jumps backwards and starts typing in the middle sentence.

This is probably a software issue, I would reload the program you are typing with (e.g.Word) and try again OR it could be your palm resting on the touchpad causing this to happen, I always disable mine when typing (normally to do this you use the 'F' or function key (coloured blue or red etc) along with appropriate key on the top row.

Trouble when typing on the keyboard on my sony vaio

Keep the palms of your hands away from the "touchpad" -- you're accidentally moving the mouse-pointer as your fingers press on the keys.

When typing on hp netbook, the cursor moves around to another part of the sentence, deletes what i've typed...any thoughts on fixing this?

You need to disable the tapping while typing option in your touch pad because your thumb sometimes touches the touch pad which is causing it to move around to another part of the sentence.
