    The cursor keeps jumping to other lines when I'm typing in Word.

    Since the keyboard is so flexible, I'm assuming I'm either typing too hard, or hitting something without realizing it (tapping the mouse pad?) Is there something I can do about it? Maybe something needs to be disabled?

    Anyone else has the same problem?

    Make the touchpad less sensitive. It's called palm check.

    I just turn my touchpad off and use an external mouse.

    Thank you all!

    What happened is I recently re-installed my OS, which also wiped out my Dell Touchpad driver. That's why I couldn't find it. Now I installed it back from the CD, and tweaked it. I hope it solves the problem, no line jumping so far!
