    I sure hope someone can help me with this problem...

    I have a laptop(Compaq Armada 3500). It has Windows 95 on it.
    Here's the problem...

    Everytime I try to type something, whether an "IM" or email letter or whatever, I have to ALWAYS double check what was typed once I finish typing a line or two. It seems that the computer wants to either skip or ignore letters I have typed. Also, it seems that the cursor is in cahoots with it! If the cursor happens to be between words, every once in a while, while I am typing, I notice that I have come between words I have typed already and I have to constantly redo my sentences!

    For an example of what it looks like...
    Normal sentence:

    I hope you had a great day today!

    Messed up sentence:

    I hopegreat day today! you had a


    I hope my example was understandable

    Please help! It's so frustrating!:mad:

    Can someone tell me if I posted to the wrong forum? Should this be in hardware or something?

    Hi Fourbeans1,

    It's often hard to tell if you're in the right forum, since computer problems belong, more often than not, to a mixture of clearly defined fields :).

    I think you're in the (more or less) right forum. Maybe referencing to this message in Hardware, or reposting it there might be a good idea.

    Sorry I can't help you with the problem itself...
    Daniel.

    well... this is one of those things you can't do by accident
    so we can rule that out. Sorry I wasn't much help

    The only reason why I think I may have done something "by accident", is that I was trying to fiddle around on the comp with what I thought might work. When you asked me that, I thought...hhhmmm...did I? LOL Thanks anyway

    I posted an answer in the hardware one, and yes, I think it's probably best there too ;)
