I have a problem with my laptop (dell) when I am typing along, I will look up at what I'm typing and discover that I have jumped to somewhere else in the text . I chalked this up to an older computer and dirty keyboard, but then just received a new Toshiba Qosmio and would you believe I am having the exact same problem right out of the box? It is not quite as bad, but same problem. Do I have polterguists or something?
Sounds like you are getting what I came down with a couple of years ago a terrible case of "FAT FINGERS" the cure for me was to plug an external keyboard in and the problem went away...I found that I was always hitting a near by key and what I thought I was typing was only in my mind never came out onto the screen the way I wanted.....Just hope you don’t catch a dose of "CRS"...cant remember s#!+
Well, I'm sure I am a clumsy typist and the old brain of mine is subject to malfunction, but what is happening here is the typing is correct, just moves about and squeezes in at random points and starts new lines, etc...real weird. Any other ideas?
All joking aside, It seems very odd indeed that you would have the same problem on two different machines.....I am really drawing a blank but what about a scan of the computer, had heard of some benign worms that were more for fun than to cause harm but that was years ago....sorry
sounds like some sort of nasty to me. I would suggest running adaware and spybot search and destroy as well as running an online virus scanner. (an online one might be able to detect bugs that your installed virus program won't detect.)
