    Help...new laptop question

    I got a new laptop for Christmas and am having a problem that I hope someone can give me advise on...

    While typing on Word, emails, etc the cursor jumps back into another word. I don't believe its my typing..
    Hope someone knows something out there.

    Its a samsung laptop...jesh, while typing this the **** thing jumped back on me...

    Aprreciate any advice...

    Is it possible that your hand is rubbing on the mouse pad while you are typing?

    Just a first thought

    That happens to my son with his computer . I think it may be a Samsung?? He got a separate mouse and solved the problem. Worth a try?

    No, its not my typing because my hands are kinda up...they hit nothing...
    Just wondering out loud if there is some control that I might beable to adjust.

    There was a lot of info in that blog and I am surely not a techie.
    I have a Samsung...a gift.

    I had never heard of Enhanced Pointer precision feature OR downloading Touchfreeze...and I am kinda scared of playing with a new laptop....so, I shall ask DH.

    Anyone else out there heard of these things...
    NO mac for me San Nic...gotta use my gift here. I know some swear by them though.
