insert text cursor jumps in paragraph

  tsrowe 14:29 07 Mar 2008

PC is Dell Inspiron using Vista. When inputting any text (email, Word etc) the insert text point keeps jumping all over the page. Unless this is noticed it makes a real mess of what your'e typing in. Have tried changing all kinds of settings but problem persists. Anyone got any ideas please ?

Is this a laptop? I have an Acer laptop that did this. In the Mouse Properties on the Tapping tab there is a setting "Tap off when typing". Since selecting this I've had no further problems.
