Windows 7: Keyboard is over-sensitive,scrambles while typing-Acer-Win7

Keyboard is over-sensitive,scrambles while typing-Acer-Win7

I've been using a second-hand Acer5532 laptop for 2 mo. and the problem existed then. Typing with anything but the most "ginger" touch, the cursor jumps throughout the document...primarily along the same line of type, usually restarting on the same line, towards first space on line, but even more erratically, wheen touch is more forceful, and will jump lines both up and down within document page. Occurs with all Document aps., but most common and worst in Notepad. Less pronounced whenever typing online, but still occurs with forceful pressure while typing. Installed Touchfreeze.exe which helped somewhat, but it's still prohibitively unreliable for use as a word processor. Thanks for your help!

Hi PROMICARUS, welcome to the Forum.

The usual cause of this problem is the touch receiving vibrations from the keyboard when you are typing & causing the cursor to bounce around.

Another alternative would be to use an external mouse & disable the touch pad.
