lenovo 3000 Y410

I have just bought an new lenovo 3000 Y410 note book. All is well, apart from one annoying problem. As long as i type out letters or emails slowly i am okay. However, If i type any where my normal speed (i am not a fast typer!!) the keyboard places the letter at the front or the middle of the sentence. Does any any one know:
 
1. The cause of this?
2. More importantly, the solution?
 
Many thanks

Re: lenovo 3000 Y410

Hi Danny, welcome to the forum.
 
That used to happen to me alot, for some unexplained reason, I would continue writing somewhere else as where I should have been. I eventually found the answer; I was hitting / brushing and therefore tapping the touchpad with a finger or thumb when typing, this caused the cursor to move to that point, (ie mouse click at that point). I solved it by turing the touchpad off on my ThinkPad. As you don't have a trackpoint as alternative, I would suggest looking into Control Panel, Mouse and see if you can adjust the sensitivity or tapping area of the touchpad. (or naturally turn the feature off)

Under Control Panel, "mouse," there also is "tapping" tab that provides a box you can check to turn off tapping while typing.
