    Any chance that you're accidentally touching the touchpad and doing this?

I would suggest trying an external keyboard for your laptop (like a USB or wireless device) You may have a problem with the keyboard on your laptop, which it easily enough fixed. If you don't see the problem with the external keyboard, then I would replace the keyboard. Since you can get a whole keyboard for many laptops for $20 or less (like on ebay or the like) that might be a quick and easy fix. Replacing the keyboard is often just a few screws, and maybe takes 15 minutes to do.

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....

Cursor continually jumps all over when trying to type


Touch pad mouse.
This unit has a "seamless touchpad with four-way integrated scroll button".
Yours is probably faulty, causing the cursor to be random.
Try disabling it and connecting a USB mouse.

My cursor jumps when i am writting a text


The keyboard is built in a way so that it is easy to accidentally tap the mousepad while you are typing. This will make your cursor jump., if you are using an external mouse, make sure to turn off the mousepad to avoid this issue by holding Fn and pushing the F7 button.

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.

Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
