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.

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.
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.
your palm might be hitting the touchpad causing your mouse cursor to move and jump around... try to type with only your fingers hitting the keys and the back of your hand raised and not hitting any part of your laptop... hope this helps....
then find a key retriever software like magic jellybean and retrieve the key and put any xp cd if u r using xp home try home cd and boot into it and at some point of install you will find a menu serching for previously installed xp they will ask you to recover it start recovery and applay the key u got durin recovery
