Is this always the case or does a reboot solve the issue? You may want to check and see if there is a driver update for the keyboard / mouse. Make sure you rule that out first.

WhenI am typing, the letters jumps behind where it sholud be,like the e in like may jump backward to the word letters, why? please help

It sound like to me anyway, that you have the automatic word fill in turned on. You will have to go to control panel to fix it. You don't say what version of windows you are using, so you will have to look around till you find it. It is under Accessibility Options on Windows XP.

About a week ago I started noticing that when I used the letter y it would make my cursor jump backwards, sometimes a few spaces but sometimes several lines. What could be causing this? It only happens if...

Does your keyboard have a pointing device in the centre? (small button that is an alternative to using the touchpad)

If you have that then it is likely that you are touching it while typing and moving the cursor inadvertently.

You can disable that device, but I would need to know what make and model of laptop you have to advise further.

Happy to help if you reply here with a comment
