    Thanks map. I have had to do a recovery already, but it was doing it before that even. The reason I had to do the recovery was because it began to be unresponsive and froze all the time. Doin a system restore didn't help. I did virus scans, and no virus. I think it was the norton free trial messing it up. Once i did the recovery I was able to remove norton and have not had problems since.

You are still under waranty through Acer. It would be better for you to call Acer (number should be in you're manual). I'll bet they tell you to re-install windows. Fonts in you're system seem to be corrupt.
Acer info below. (Click on the link).

While im typing, my curser skips back into the middle of my sentences, and i have to retype my whole sentence again...what is causing this to happen and how can i fix, thank you


if it is the same thing that happens to me you need to shut off your touchpad (mousepad) when you are typing as your fingers or palms cause the curser to jump if you touch it while typing

Erratic curser, jumping


Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

Keyboard curser bounces around


Are you bumping the touch pad while you type? This may be causing the curser to move around. This laptop is known for its sensitive touch pad.
