typing cursor keeps shifting to beginning of sentence...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an acer one netbook. Whenever I type the cursor always blinks to the beginning of the sentence. It does this after about two to three seconds of tyyping most of the time. Is this a software issue or a keyboard issue? Is there some function on the keyboard I can change?

I think this issue is random. Sometimes it does it after two seconds of typing, sometimes it does it after a minute.

My Specs are Acer one netbook D55, with windows Xp 32bit home.

It's probably a mistroke of a key. I know on the toshibas the home key is pretty close to the - 0 and = key. I'll sometimes inadvertently hit the home key while clicking one of those and my cursor will jump to the beginning of the text block or paragraph. Another thing you could try is to turn off your trackpad. Sometimes swiping it with the edge of your palm will send it flying.

But now that I reread your post, I think you mean that it just flashes and doesn't actually jump to the beginning and has you typing from there. In that case, I don't know. XD
