    I just installed a new hard drive in my computer (upgraded to a 1TB,) re-installed Windows 8, everything seems to be going great...except...

    It seems like my keyboard is ultra sensitive...? That's the best way I know how to describe it. When I rest my hands where I normally do and start typing, especially if I'm going super fast, it seems like keys I'm not pressing get 'pressed', or the cursor just moves to another place on the screen randomly. I cannot for the life of me figure out why it's doing this or what I can do to make it stop. It's very very frustrating!! :(

    Like Netghost said where your thumb when typing? I had a laptop that would IRRITATE me to no end whenever my thumb was on the mousepad it would cause those issues. You may, since reinstalling windows have to readjust your mousepads sensitivity settings.
