P500: Space bar/cursor erratic when entering text online

This has only happened at two websites - Yelp and LinkedIn, but seems to be a new pattern. I have gone to Linkedin many times before without issue. It does not happen anywhere else.


  • I type a character, hit space bar and cursor disapears.
  • Sometime is does a carriage return 
  • I can't type any text
  • If I click with the mouse to bring cursor back to original spot, it does appear
  • But I then cannot input anything in that line text. (I'm thinking this has something to do with my wifi connection?)

I have played around with the synaptic sensitivity settings for the touchpad. This has not helped.


Any ideas? (keyboard works fine in the this text input box)

hi digit47,


  Thanks for using Lenovo Community Forums!


This might be a browser plug in issue,


    Can you try typing on a plain notepad, see if the problem happens there


If not,

   Try downloading a different browser to verify or If you're using Internet Explorer, you can perform a Browser reset.


Best Regards
