I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ410E laptop and when I am typing away on the keyboard, after a few words into typing, it jumps back a few spaces to the middle of previously typed words. Sometimes to the middle of the typed line right above. even though not always, it seems to happens right after they ''y'' key is pressed. This only happens when typing fast on the keyboard.

Typing problem when I type on this laptop, all of a sudden the next line cuts into a previous typed line, so I have to take the mouse cursor and reposition it on the next blank line.

I am trying to get an IBM T42 laptop up and running. I started it up with the rescue and recovery CD in the drive. It showed the bars on the bottom of the screen and seemed to complete the process but then I got a blue screen (I did not write down the exact error message, but it had something to do with an error in windows and was shutting down to avoid damage to the machine).

Up Arrow My up arrow seems to have a mind of it's own. It will start scrolling up to the top of any drop down lists and when typing an email or in Word it will jump up lines and continue my typing on the line above. I learned that if I hit the key enough it will temporarily stop but now the key won't work at all. I don't really care about that as much as the jumping about. Do I need a new keyboard or can I uninstall the keyboard driver and try a reinstall? I am out of warranty.
