Windows 7: Keyboard Problem/Odd Behavior

Keyboard Problem/Odd Behavior

When I am typing in Word the cursor seemingly jumps to another place in the document. This happens quite often, I am in the middle of a sentence and then I am suddenly typing in a completely different paragraph. I do not if I am hitting a key that does this manually but it is very annoying. Hope I explain this thoroughly but I have no idea what is going on and I hope someone knows what is happening.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome
for more detail fill your system specs.
and also are u using notebook or PC?

The first thing to do when registering with our forum (especially if you have an issue you want assistance with) is to fill out your system specs. This allows our knowledgeable members to assist you better with your issue. It is very simple to do: please follow these steps below

First click on UserCP


Next click on Edit System Spec


Now you will see various fields for different types of hardware. Don't worry if you have no idea what kind of hardware it is asking for or the brand you have as I will explain how to get Windows to list it for you. For now keep that window open

Now click on start and type msinfo32.exe in the search field and press enter

Now you should have a window resembling mine below


With this information in hand lets start to fill out the specs

System Manufacture/Model Number
As you see in my screen shot I have no listing due to my laptop being a custom build



OS
OS or Operating System for short is the main program that drive's your computer...notable example here being the Windows Operating System developed by Microsoft Corporation.



CPU
CPU or Central Processing Unit (Processor) is the brain of the computer.



Motherboard
The motherboard is where all the hardware parts of the computer are connected to.
Memory
Memory is what allows applications to run on your computer. The more memory you have the faster an application start.



Graphics Card(s)
A graphics card/cards allow the computer to display an image to a monitor and allow you to play games.



Sound Card(s)
A sound card/cards allow the computer to play sound.


Screen Resolution
This is the output measurement of the image being displayed by your monitor.



Hard Drives
Hard Drives are the primary storage of the computer (think of how this relates to a stomach on a human being). This is where your documents/music/photos/videos are located.

Sorry for not filling out the system specs, was in a hurry, had to get some essay questions done. I posted some major system info. Also the computer is a XPS 1530 Laptop and I am using Microsoft Office Word 2007. Hope this helps.

I was pondering the same as well, kword88.

There is another long running thread on these forums wherein the exact circumstance you mention was sheepishly realized as being the culprit.

thanks for the update.
when you type a word, try to disable your touchpad first because maybe when you type you touch it so it can be move your cursor. like kword said.. i guest like that too.
