    Yes gone on and off loads mine does it every time i write! xxx

    Dodgy battery most likely (if its a dell) happened on my dell. Put it on charge take the battery out, see what its like

    could be a 'memory leak' in your browser ...

    virus

    Last time I encountered that problem with someone was because of a wet keyboard. Probably useless information to you, and I hope it's wrong since a wet laptop keyboard means a wet laptop!

    stop touching the touch pad

    I got an old HP Pavilion laptop this used to happen to, (I think) the mouse trackpad was so sensitive that it used to click the mouse button causing the cursor to jump.

    Exact same thing used to happen to me, I'd look up at the screen and see that I'd written a couple of lines of text inbetween the text already above. Was very frustrating. Settled down one day and rarely happened again (much).

    Maybe a virus if not that.

    Doh, I thought that would work

    i had a similar problem

    what i do to resolve it is click the cursor at the end of the sentence where i want to type, then use the mouse trackpad to move the pointer right to the bottom of the screen

    that way, if i do happen to brush against the trackpad it doesn't move the actual cursor to anywhere

    works for me

    Try this to adjust the palm settings for your synaptics touchpad.

    Start

    Control panel

    Mouse

    Which brings up mouse properties

    Device settings

    Settings

    Sensitivity

    Palm check

    Then adjust the settings

    I hope this helps
