Windows 7: erratic keyboard behavior after installing windows 7

erratic keyboard behavior after installing windows 7

Hi,

Iíve just installed windows 7 on my wifeís HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop, and she is reporting that her keyboard is behaving very erratically. She says that while she is typing the cursor will jump to another part of the page, highlighting some text, then erasing what was highlighted with her further typing. She is getting very frustrated, especially after I promised her a better user experience after upgrading to Windows 7.

I suspected at first that she may be inadvertently hitting the mousepad, but after more testing, Iíve confirmed that this is not causing the issue.

Does anyone have a clue as to what may be causing this?

Welcome to the forum

There can be many reasons for your problem. Here are a few as presented in the MS forum.

The cursor jumps erratically while typing regardless of program.

The reasons would be the same for Vista or Windows 7
