    So I own a Dell Latitude E5420 14inch. And my problem is I’m typing and it just moves the other part of the word to another line/word. How can I fix this.
    Specs of this system
    Intel core i5-2540M@ 2.60 (?) ghz
    8gb ram
    250gb ssd
    Windows 7 pro sp1

    Are you accidentally hitting the track-pad when you type?

    This would be my guess as well.

    No this happens even when a external one is plugged in

    Can you disable the track pad through the touch pad properties and see if the issue goes away? I've seen similar from a failing but not quite dead touchpad.

    If that is confirmed to be the problem, you can leave it disabled and use a wireless or USB mouse, or replace the palmrest assembly.
