Windows 7 and cursor jumping when typing
I’ve found that the cursor moves around a lot and unpredictably when I type fast in Word, within Blogger, or even key in a URL into a browser, in Windows 7, both on my Dell XPS (fitted with W7 pro) and less so on a Toshiba notebook with Windows 7 Starter. It doesn't happen if I slow down and save frequently. I wonder if it is worse on laptops that had been converted to W7, or it if goes away if you get a wireless keyboard accessory.
Here’s what I found out about it, in a forum. I’ll have to find the touchpad drivers and disable them for typing. I don't think my palms touch the keypad.
