Either its because you are hitting your touchpad while you are typing, or the little eraser mouse ball thats on the keyboard is faulty. If that is bad, you must replace the keyboard.

My fn key wont work on toshiba sattelite pro


FN (Function Key) that is usually located near the bottom left on the keyboard is not a key that you press by itself to do anything. The FN key works in combination with the (F1 thru F12) and any other key that has the same symbol or color as the FN Key. You have to Press and HOLD the FN key while pressing another key.

If the FN key is Blue and for example your F8 key has a (white F8 on it and a Blue battery icon on it) then to see your battery metor (how much charge it has left) you would Press the FN and hold it then press the F8 key. The F8 that is white does not require you to press the Blue FN.

Sometimes the FN key might have a white square on it, then the keys that work with the FN key will also have a symbol with a white square around it.

Text jumps around on the screen


If you're still experiencing the problem (how frustrating if you still are !), I would suggest running a anti-spyware program such as SpyBot, or anti-malware program, such as Malwarebytes. Good luck.

I thought the problem was fixed but I spoke up to quick.

The problem with the cursor jumping to another line, continues.

The $9.95 I payed was for not.

I can't type this without the cursor going to another line I
have already typed.

I have an HP Pavilion dv5224 laptop. pe I find that when I ty at a clip, things like what just happened (my cursor somehow jumps to another place in the para--from ty to 1st line pe). This happens pretty...


Does your laptop have touchpad that acts as a mouse if you don't have a mouse plugged in (it's usually directly below the spacebar)? If any part of your hand accidentally brushes that sensitive rectangular area, it will cause the mouse cursor to jump around.

There is usually a button you can push at the top of the rectangular touchpad to turn it off while you're typing. On my HP laptop it has a blue light, and when I push the button it turns red.
