Key jumping problem

My acer laptop has an XP professional. Recently I have been encountering a key jumping problem . Suddenly whlie typing the curson moves to any random spot and the typing begins from that point. This problem is heavy when I use microsoft outlook and MS word.
The cursor suddenly jumps to "Send" button and with any key stroke incomplete mails are even sent.

How to install xp on acer laptop

You'll need a windows xp operating system disk. If you already have windows xp on the Acer then check the Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker to see what version of windows xp it has. You'll have to have an operating system disk with the same version otherwise once it asks for the key to activate windows it will not activate. For Example, if your COA says Windows XP Professional you cannot install a Windows XP Home version unless you purchased the Home Version and the COA Key has never been used.

Insert the disk in the drive and just follow the instructions. It's pretty straight forward and simple.

My keyboard has suddenly stoped working correctly, I think its due to me messing around with the Function Keys. Any ideas


I believe the num lock key is truned ON. IF yes, then whenever you type, it will give you only number. Try the steps below to unlockit:
Keep on holding the "Fn" Key and then press F11 (Numlk) key. i.e Fn+F11
It should take care of the issue.

Thanks and regards,

Need product key for windows xp professional installation extensa 5420-5687 model #MS2210

I am sorry, but we are not allowed to give Product Keys or Registration Keys.

But I can help guide you to where yours is located.

When you buy a Retail Copy of Windows, the registration key is located on the included material.

If it came pre-installed, there will be a Windows sticker on the bottom of your laptop with the key.

If you already have XP Pro installed, you can use any of the numerous programs listed in the below link to read the key from where it is stored on your computer.

There are other options to obtain a registration key, but they are all illegal and I am not allowed to list them.

Hope this information helps you.
