whenever I'm typing a text on this laptop (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1818) the cursor (
) changes it's position randomly i.e. to:
It is very frustrating as I need to put the cursor back in it's original place again, due to the fact that it jumps to previously typed text. Sometimes it goes back a few words, sometimes it jumps up a few lines. Whenever it jumps back, it jumps in between words or randomly in words like you can see on the second image.
It happens alot (the more I type, the faster it occurs again). I am 100% sure that it's not caused by me touching the touchpad while typing, as I've been looking for 10 minutes now while typing and I can't spot myself touching the pad with my hand, finger or anything else. I tried covering the touchpad with random objects such as a sheet of paper or a creditcard but the problem still occurs.
It happens in any program (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, Notepad,...), even when I'm watching a YouTube-video browsing the comments it's scrolling the page up (never scrolls down).
Is this a well known problem or is it only me? thanks in advance.
