Hello,
I have been experiencing repeated cursor jumping when typing text to an email or to any website communication like this one.The cursor suddenly either jumps about randomly to another part of the text, or the typing suddenly stops for no reason and the cursor has disappeared!
What is the cause of this??
Is it a software issue? I tried changing the mouse and its still doing it.Sometimes the document even switches to another open document mid-stream.
Very annoying

You use a mouse for your laptop, but keep in mind the touchpad also acts like a mouse. During typing you probably touch it with your wrists and cause this behavior.

Try disabling the touchpad (in Control Panel, or other laptop-specific application) and see if still happens. If it does, we'll think of another thing.
