Thank you - Thank you - Thank you for providing the link! I have been having the same problem with my HP dv7 and couldn't even finish typing one word before the cursor would skip lines and delete words along the way!! Now I can actually use my laptop the way I intended to use it, with the touchpad and not an external mouse! Imagine that HP!! Perhaps they'll issue a permanent fix one day to show concern for their customers... ehhh probably not.
