Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5720-4230 Notebook ?

Cursor jumps back to previous text and volume control not working

\015 I have had problems with this laptop since it was purchased in July 2008. Since then I have also noticed that the volume control doesn't work properly and is obviously faulty as it doesn't respond appropriately. The main problem I have, this one being the most annoying and frustrating, is that when I am typing any kind of document, be it email, word document, or simply writing on a website forum, the cursor repeatedly jumps back in the text. Even whilst I am typing this message the cursor has jumped back at least 6 times and I have had to go back and correct what has been typed. Its driving me mad!! Can anyone help please? I have read somewhere that you can disable 'tapping' in the mouse properties but I don't seem to have this option on my machine\015

The cursor jumps somewhere else on the screen as I am typing causing me to stop typing and put the cursor back at the end of the text which I am writing. If I don't spot it straight away it can mean I have typed a few words in the wrong place. When this happens continously it is very irritating not to mention time consuming in having to delete words and move the cursor back to where it should be. Any ideas anyone?
