Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
When I'm typing a document (letter, memo, email etc) the cursor will suddenly move up several lines and continue with my input there. Very. Frust-Rating. Is it anything to do with my touchpad (which I NEVER use?)
Mine jump to where the cursor is positioned or close by. Its a PAIN

I have the same problem...it is totally irratic, and is not in association to the cursor. it jumps back into the text, or in word up to previous lines.
Mine is definitely not a touch pad issue.

Most likely, your wrist is gently touching the touchpad, and your computer is interpreting it as a 'tap,' and it so happens your cursor was located several lines up.
Or if you use a separate mouse, is it on a wood or uneven surface? This will cause it to jump up those few lines and again, your wrist (or if you have big hands like I do, the bottom of your thumbs) will tap it.
