    I have a Presario C700 with Windows Vista Home Premium. I have 2 issues:
    1 the touchpad often stops allowing me to scroll and I have to tap it multiple times to make it click on something

    2 even more annoying is that when I'm typing the cursor will skip to a random place on the page and keys get typed that I know I didn't touch. At first I thought it was an overly sensitive keyboard, but then I had a friend watch me to see if I was touching other keys and I wasn't!

    1. boot to safe mode by tapping the F8 key once a second during the boot process. Use the up / down arrow keys to high light / select "safe mode". Press "enter".
    Does the problem exist?

    2. Some of are touch pad challenged.

    3. On my IBM laptop, the left click button has begun to inconsistently respond. I think it is wearing out. A similar issue could be occurring w/ your CPQ lappy.

    4. Tiny gophers?

    What, if anything, have you used to clean your keyboard & touch pad. Use ONLY that which is recommended by CPQ.
