I don't know if you mean that your cursor suddenly moves as you are typing? If so, it is likely your touch pad is too sensitive. I have a mouse w/mouse pad but never disabled the touch pad. So i disabled the touch pad and it solved it for me. If you want to be sure it is the touch pad being over sensitive, then type a paragraph but keep your fingers and palms far away from the touch pad. If the problem improves, like it did for me, then the touchpad is too sensitive. You can go into the settings for the touchpad to change the sensitivity setting to make it less senstive and see if that works and it does not then press Fn +F7 keys to disable the touchpad.

Guessing you are saying you checked vacuum lines, the next probable place is the exhaust.
Can you tell where it is coming from? If the front end of the engine then remove belts one at a time to disable accessories.
You need to locate it. Use a piece of fuel line of a hose of some type, you should be able to move it around and locate the source of the whistle.

Why does my text prompt tab to the next box, move within a line of text, or otherwise disappear when I start typing?

The touchpad membrane is bouncing as you type; the bouncing is letting contacts move the pointer to a new spot. You need to replace the touchpad, or disable it if you use a mouse.

Something happened to my friend's ACER netbook and it is not able to open. It shows the message to Press Ctl+Alt+Del but after you do that it goes back to the same message again. We tried Alt+F10 but it...

Did you hold down the alt key while continually pressing the F10 key?
  • Back up all data on the Acer Aspire One that you wish to keep.

  • Install the battery and connect the AC adapter to your Acer Aspire One.
  • Turn the system on by pressing the "Power" button.

  • Press and hold the "Alt" key immediately after pressing the "Power" button and tap the "F10" button.

  • Continue holding the "Alt" button and tapping the "F10" button until a screen saying "Acer eRecovery" appears.

    You will see three options:

    Restore system to factory default
    Restore system from CD/DVD (grayed out if an optical drive is not connected)

  • Click on "Restore system to factory default." A notice will appear informing you that all data on the "C:" drive will be overwritten and reminding you to plug in the AC cord.

  • Click "OK" to begin the recovery. A message will appear stating once again that all data on your hard drive will be overwritten.

  • Click "OK" to acknowledge the message. The screen will show you a progress bar as the recovery progresses. Wait until the recovery is complete. The time will vary depending upon the individual netbook. A message will appear when the recovery is finished.

  • Click "OK" to restart the computer. The netbook will reboot. Windows will load, asking you to wait. A "Welcome to Microsoft Windows" screen will eventually appear with background music playing. It is time to help Windows set up your computer.

  • Click "Next" to continue. You will be asked to input your system settings. Enter your region, language, and keyboard type, then click "Next." The next window is for your time zone.

  • Select your time zone and, if desired, place a check in the box beside "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings time," then click "Next." The EULA (End User License Agreement) will appear next.

  • Place dots beside "Yes, I accept" on both places to accept all points of the EULA, then click "Next."
  • Place a dot in the radio button beside "Help protect my PC by turning on Automatic Updates now" and click "Next."

  • Click "Skip" to avoid setting up network information at this time.

  • Click "Skip" to avoid setting up an Internet connection at this time.

  • Place a dot beside "No, not at this time" to avoid registering with Microsoft at this point, then click "Next."

  • Click "Skip" to avoid inputting registration information now.

  • Put your name and the names of others who will use the computer here, one per line. Click "Next." Microsoft will thank you for setting up your computer. Click "Finish" to begin using your newly restored computer.

    Check disc makes the screen go blank

    The disc check stopping and going to a blank screen, indicates a bad sector in the hard drive, and the drive will need replaced. If you can still use the machine by skipping the check disc, then you need to back up any files that you want to keep, eventually the hard drive will fail completely, if it hasn't already.
