Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a Dell XPS M1730 laptop, running Windows Vista, and I am having a problem with my keyboard in that the letters skip and jump around when I type. I can be in the middle of a sentence and all of a sudden the letters jump to the middle of another sentence, or somewhere else in the letter or on the page. It is almost impossible to type a full paragraph or sentence without this happening. Can you help me. Thank you, Susan

Hi!

\015\012Did you install any program prior to this problem? There were several forums on the internet wherein people have experienced misbehaving keyboard problem after installing a certain program. Some have even experienced this after udating their Internet Explorer (thorugh automatic Windows update). You may want to uninstall this to revert to the original IE version of your PC.

\015\012Or if you can remember what specific program was installed prior to this problem, please try to uninstall to see if this has caused the proble. Open the Control panel and look for recently installed programs or additions to your internet toolbar. Internet add ons affect not only internet browser texts but somehow affect your desktop programs as well. Uninstall any new programs, restart your computer and check to see if the problem is resolved.

\015\012You may try to connect an external keyboard to your laptop to see if there is a hardware problem on your laptop's keyboard.

\015\012Also, run Adaware from lavasoft.com & cleanup if any trojans are there.
\015\012Check your touch pads sensitivity. On Windows Vista, go to Control Panel>Mouse>Tapping and set the Touch Sensitivity in the low range.
\015\012Disable the touch pad. Step by step instructions vary for each system. Search in your "system's help section" for detailed information on how to disable the touch pad. This however, is a temporary fix.
\015\012Uninstall & reinstall the touchpad driver from your dell XPS drivers disc.
I will suggest first to you to do here a system restore to the date and time when everything was working so we can also check if this is only a software problem or a hard ware problem, to do system restore follow this steps:
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
