    Mine does exactly the same thing, and I was just trying to explain it to the store where I got it. Its off for repairs so it will be interesting to see if they come up with an explanation. I hate the stupid thing!

The keyboard on my new HP mini311 has a mind of its own, with the cursor jumping around the current document in some random order - it is driving me crazy!

Are you sure that you are not accidentally rubbing against the "touchpad", which would cause the cursor to move?

I had the same problem. It is due to the touch pad being to sensitive. My fix was to buy a usb mouse, and disable to trackpad by hitting the Fn key and F7. No problems anymore

Sounds like a driver issue. My touchpad goes crazy sometimes and I have to reboot, especially when it gets a little wet on the touchpad.

I puzzled over this for months, and then discovered it was because my thumb, normally attached to a mouse, was touching the board. Easy smeazy. Either wait until your habits can change, and not touch the touchpat with your thumb, or get a plug-in mouse.
