Hello,
When I am typing, suddenly the cursor (or that winking thing) jumps to the middle of the previous word or sentence and the letters are typed in the wrong place and it is quite annoying, since I have to delete and retype all the time!
Can anybody help me please?

Dear Brian

This forum as well as the French forum have received a lot of complaints with jumping cursor or crazy cursor with Sony and Dell laptops.

We have learned that is a recurrent problem due to faulty plant assembly or parts which give up prematurely and that only a qualified in the flesh technician can repair. If your laptop is still under warranty, I suggest you contact the store where you bought it from or Sony

Good luck
