My one yr old Samsung laptop is getting senile.
When typing, it stalls, then the curser slips to another location. I then have to move it back to re-start typing, then after 2-3 letters, it does it again. Just in the past few days.
No virus, per Staples tech ( where I bought it)

It might be a virus that the anti-virus can't detect. Have you ever spilled something on the keyboard or the mouse?

You could try using a USB keyboard. If it works then, it's probably a problem with the keyboard in your laptop. If it still doesn't work, it could possibly be a virus or some other software issue.
