Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook ?

I have an Acer laptop. While typing the cursor suddenly jumps up a couple of lines, or suddenly may highlight a phrase, causing instant erasure of the previously typed material. Why does cursor continually (even as I type this) do this. I am not doing anything to cause it.
