Windows 7: I have a random cursor jumping around when I type

I have a random cursor jumping around when I type

1st off I have a Gateway md2614u laptop, os Windows 7 home 32bit. Sometimes when I am typing (I could be in the mail reader, note pad, word pad, or anywere else that I type more then a few words) without any warning the cursor will jump to a different line and my typing will continue on that the new place if I don't catch it. Like in an email prog the cursor has jumped down to the end of the auto signature (when I start a new email in the email reader will auto place a pre-made signature on the blank page) and the typing will go on from there. Also sometimes the cursor will jump completely out of the Windows box or the prog I am in and back to the desktop. So far it has been no more than a minor annoyance. I would like to know why it does that though.

Hi reble,


Please try (if you havent already):


Start > Control Panel > Hardware and sounds > Mouse > Pointer Options > and uncheck hide pointer while typing
Click Apply. A Restart might be in order.

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Cheers

Dave please look at the following link "re a graphic problem in 007 quantum of solace - Tech Support Forum" could that problem with the game be connected with this problem?

Not sure to be honest, possibly. Have you tried unchecking Hide pointer while typing? As you didnt say?

Good job , Perhaps open notepad and try typing and see if the issue is resolved?

Also try your game and see if that issue is also resolved?
