Default 1012 keyboard jumps??? - 11-26-2010, 06:10 PM

I need to know if anyone has had issues with this or not. I have a 1012 and I have noticed that when typing suddenly the cursor jumps to another line on the document. I did install extra RAM so my first guess was I tightened the keyboard to tight, but I loosened it and it still does it!!! I am using a wireless mouse. Is this a common problem? And if so any fixes? Or could my lazy wrists be hitting the track pad?

I expect the trackpad is the problem. Many OSs have the ability to disable the trackpad while typing, search the forums/Internet... or poke around in settings.

I like the synaptics from HP. Scrolling with two fingers, moving my cursor to the right is not important anymore. Thanks to this forum I got it.

I am liking my 1012 more in fact I am using it regularly, posting this with the use of a regular KB, mouse monitor.

FYI - My monitor is S1909WX, set to 1280x800 resolution.

My keyboard on my Mini 1012 is almost unusable. It jumps randomly almost every line, so now I am using an external mouse and external keypboard.... sort of cancels out the advantage of the small size.
