I have 2 HP laptops - HP Pavillion 15 inch, have different model numbers, but essentially they are the same laptop.

I use an external monitor on each.
The keyboard keeps on jumping to the other screen.
It's winding me up.
On one at least, I know the BIOS is upto date.

Not a huge problem to be honest...
But... I have Gmail with keyboard shortcuts activated.

When the screen jumps... and I'm mad typing away...
Emails can get deleted or disappear!
The worst thing is, I only realise after 20 key strokes

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

That happens to me when my hand/wrist/thumb (or something) accidentally brushes the touchpad. Instantly the cursor jumps from where I am (was) typing off somewhere else. <grrr> Fortunately, my laptop has a button right next to the touchpad that lets me disable/enable it. You might check to see if you have something similar.

@SpywareDr I'm using an external keyboard
I have the same keyboard on both laptops.
But the thing is, the same has happened with other keyboards.
The keyboards are all Logitech.

I could possibly blame the keyboard - but the jumping problem happens when just using the laptop on its own (with no external monitor attached).

Is it a Windows bug maybe?

It could be I suppose. But, if it were, you would think more people would be complaining about it.

If this is a recent development, you might try doing a System Restore back to a point in time before this began occurring. If that doesn't work, I'd next try restoring my most recent backup.
