Welcome rmstack. My first impulse would be to return the laptop quickly.

Yes, and to confirm (if you can) attach a real keyboard and see if the problem continues. It sounds like you may have simply gotten a bad unit, though - it happens.

It is going back for a replacement. BUT, I have had the same problem with typing skipping to other places on the page on my 3+ yr.old computer with Windows 7,upgraded from XP. I sure would like to know what causes it as well as a fix. Never had that problem with XP.

Are you per chance hitting the Touchpad while typing? That can cause problems like this, especially if Tap-to-click is active.

Connect a mouse, disable the Touch pad and see what happens.

It sounds like you've installed some software on each machine to make duplicate errors?

Good point Britton. The odds of two computers owned by the same person doing the same goofy thing with two different keyboards with out a added program is slim to none. I wonder if their is some kind of Office or Word program installed on both computers that could be causing this to happen.
To the OP, let us know on that program idea. Also did you install such program on both machines about the same time. My thinking is they both might be infected with the same thing. Like a virus or malware.

Wife has the same problem with the typing. On the old machine, the problem went away on its own after a short time. Problem has not gone away on the new one. BUT, people seem to indicate that it could be the touchpad. I can not find where to disable the touchpad in the Contor Panel. Which item might it be under? It is not under "Mouse" and nowhere do I see a heading of "Touchpad"

Actually, we do not use the touchpad at all and use a wireless mouse.

Wife has the same problem with the typing skipping. The problem resolved itself on the old computer twice but came back each time. New computer still has the problem. We have always used a wireless mouse on both. I can not find any topic in the control panel to turn off the touchpad. There is a topic, "Mouse" but it is not there. Any idea which heading the touchpad might be under???
