Hi I really want to post this message but I have no experience of forums and call me stupid if you like but I cant find the place where I can post my message, so this is it:

Im at Uni and I have to write a lot but when writing my mouse often drifts off. I know Ive seen a lot of postings similar, but I think perhaps this is different. When I find where my curser has landed it has often taken my text and there is a lot of my which sometimes deletes itself. I realise that this must be something Im doing but is there anyway you know of to switch off the drifting mouse. I only really noticed this drifting mouse when I bought this laptop a year and a half ago. Before I had a very old Compaq Armada with Windows XP and my mouse never drifted. I really need to sort this irritating problem out soon as it is causing me to waste a lot of time trying to find the curser and often retype my stuff.

If you cant post this on a blog or forum or whatever you call it can you let me know how I can find that part of you site and do it myself.

Happy New Year

Niki

Are you perhaps touching the "touchpad" with your palm while you're typing?
If that is the case, there are usually sensitivity options and safeguards against palm touch.
