Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!

A35-S159 keyboard problem


Try this first, Make sure the mouse cursor is further down the page or completely off the page you are typing on. Whith the problems of static electricity or stray energy if you are typing and go past where the mouse cursor is and stray voltage is present then the lightest touch of the glide pad or mouse could be interpreted as a click and your text will begin where the mouse cursor is.

Letter writting problems


Do you use a laptop or some sort of keyboard with a mouse pad? My son used to have that problem when he would type as his thumb would accidentally hit the mouse pad and move the cursor. We solved it in a very low tech way by taping a notecard over the mouse pad when he was using the computer. Depending on the manufacurer, there are ways to turn off the mouse pad while continuing to use a mouse.
