What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

When typing, cursor jumps backward several spaces


Sounds like your mousepad is ghosting. This means it thinks you're tapping the mousepad as you type, which will make it type exactly where you nlast moved the curser to. First, try cleaning the pad thoroughly with a damp tissue, and dry it well... if that doesn't solve it, you could try adjusting the mousepad sensitivity controls on the control panel. Hope that helps.

Overly sensitive keyboard curser while typing on my Acer Aspire 7551-7422


Sometimes the heat from your hand passing near the touchpad is enough to move the cursor. I hate that too. If it really bothers you then you could always use a wireless mouse and disable the touchpad in "Device Manager"

Curser jumps while typing


Hi there.
The best thing to do is to uninstall the touchpad drivers, you can do this by going to the control panel look for add remove programs or programs and features, in that window look in the list for "synaptics" and uninstall it.
That should clear up the problem, if you cannot find synaptics in the add remove programs please post back.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
