Over the past week, my cursor moves randomly over the screen, will place newly-typed text in the wrong place, makes duplicate entries of an alphabetic keystroke, skips a space, etc. I have a Toshiba Satellite L455, new this year. This weird stuff happens in any system in which one types (electronic mail, forms on internet, etc.) My hand is nowhere near the mouse when this occurs. I sought help from one of those pay-how-much places on the internet last night; after 2 1/2 hours, I gave up. I have also noticed that my Dell Inspiron laptop is starting to do the same thing. Any experience/solutions with this?

If its new then return the lap top and get another one.

For your Dell i would recommend updating the mouse/keyboard drivers if you can or use another mouse.

Thanks for the info. How do I go about getting the Dell drivers (sorry to sound so stupid). The Toshiba has been nothing but trouble since I bought it in March.
