    Mouse pointer moves to another location after typing stop


    Hi,

    I am on Windows 8 and I am able to type. However when I stopped typing sometimes the mouse pointer moves to another location.
    Please guide.

    Regards,

    This is most probably caused by a sensitive touchpad. Without you noticing it a part of your hand touches the touchpad and moves the pointer. This is very easy to test: disable touchpad and get an external mouse using it instead. If the issue does not occur anymore, this was the reason for your issue.
