    Mysterious laptop

    I dont know what the deal is with this laptop I have. I will be typing then it will suddenly delete everything I typed, randomly.

    You can rule out viruses or any type of malware as I would have seen them and I dont install anything that would potentially cause this (or visit websites that would). Think the keys are somehow shorting or connecting improperly? Im wondering if its somehow hitting the mouse key in the middle of the keyboard or something, but it drives me insane typing a post several times.

    Disable the touch pad and see if it still happens.

    The keys snap on and off, the daughter pulled some off once and was beating on the keyboard. Glad you reminded me im sure that probably did something now that I think about it.

    or just disable the touchpad's ability to click on it.

    that problem is a huge PAIN!! Sometimes you just disable the clickies, sometimes you need to disable the whole gizmo.
