Text writing is weird. I write and part of the word appears a sentence away?

Ha, it's because your wrist or thumb is touching the mousepad occasionally - some are more sensitive than others.

Try turning the mousepad off while typing, sometimes there is a button at the mousepad area, others it's an Alt-Function key. Look for a symbol on the F-keys that look like a finger touching a square or mousepad. This, and the Alt key combination will shut it off and then back on again when you select them.
An external or USB keyboard and mouse works great for me.

1. Motherboard is going bad or contacts inside are not centered(which means the mousepad isnt sitting on the sensor that picks up your finger) have disabled the mousepad via the FN keys on your keyboard

What does calibrating a ipad mean

Whoever used the term "calibrating an iPad" may have been referring to touch screen calibration.

Some touch screens need to be adjusted, or "calibrated", or the device may act as if you touched a different spot on the screen than you did. The iPad screen does not need to be calibrated.
If the iPad make a mistake about what spot you touched, the error may be due to:
  • a defect or damage;
  • a screen protector;
  • a cold finger;
  • a hand that is holding the iPad and inadvertently touching the screen;
  • a finger that is inadvertently touching the screen.

I was looking at the icons at the right had bottom of my computer and i clicked on them i guess and now my compute is locked. i may have clicked a certain one. not sure

you most likely disabled the mousepad with your mousepad driver, plugging in a different mouse may alleviate the problem and let you turn it off again. Use the windows start key or the Tab Button on your keyboard open the start menu.

Now (with the arrow keys) go up to Control Panel and press Enter, Control Panel will be highlighted, press enter again.

Using the same arrow key movements go down to the icon or listing for your touch pad, press Enter and go through the (following the same function you have been to get here) provided menu until you see the active touch pad or however it might be written (I'm on a PC right now, sorry).

That should do you. Just remember to use the Tab, Enter and arrow keys.

I am typing off the laptop keyboard itself and as I am typing it jumps back into a previous sentence or previous paragraph

Most likely culprit:

Do you have the finger touch-pad turned on?
Chances are you're brushing up against that, high static will increase the likely hood.
I don't even have to touch mine.
If you have a button to turn it off - great! Turn it off while you're typing.
I've seen some that lack this feature. I'm not sure if it can be disabled in the task bar; or if you'd need to disable the device through the hardware/device manager.
Another option is to just make sure your hands/wrists are elevated -- They really should be anyway to avoid carpal tunnel.

Other possiblilities:
Hitting the: home, pg up, pg dn, and/or end keys -- Arrow keys as well, will do it.
Some sort of software malfunction. -Perhaps, glitch or compatability issue.
Virus/someone's accessing your computer - Usually they don't just play around with your sentences though. ;-)
Broken keyboard.

Hope this helps!

When typing an e-mail in Yahoo, frequently the curser will move to an earlier location on the document causing me to type words in the middle of other words and sentences.

If this is on a laptop with a mousepad as part of the device (below the keyboard), often times, this is due to an inadvertent touching of the mousepad. It can be resolved by either being very careful with your hand positions (lifting them above the keyboard when typing), or installing a utility program that assists with ignoring inadvertent touches of the keypad.

Mousepad Problem

I assume we are discussing a trackpad.
It's possible that your have your "tap to click" feature enabled, and you are inadvertently tapping the trackpad while you are sliding your finger around. Visit Apple Menu / System Preferences / Trackpad to set your trackpad controls in a way more comfortable for you.
If this doesn't solve your problem, you will have to provide us with a more specific description of what actions you are performing, and what actions the Mac is performing.

I'll be typing anything and my cursor will randomly reset to an earlier place causing me to constantly correct my work. I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 15.

Mine does this quite often when I am typing. I have discovered that my hands are touching the mousepad while I am typing and will randomly put the mouse in the middle or just about anywhere in the document I am typing. The next time this happens take note of where your hands are and if they may be slightly touching the mousepad. It took me quite some time before I figured out what was happening.

Keyboard problem- cursor keeps jumping around when I'm typing

You may be inadvertently touching the touch pad with the side of your hand or fingers as you type OR the touch pad itself is bad and needs replacement.

While im typing, my curser skips back into the middle of my sentences, and i have to retype my whole sentence again...what is causing this to happen and how can i fix, thank you

if it is the same thing that happens to me you need to shut off your touchpad (mousepad) when you are typing as your fingers or palms cause the curser to jump if you touch it while typing
