I think I need a new keyboard

If some of my posts seem to have an inordinate amount of edits, it's because my keyboard has taken to deciding whether the "insert" button should be active or not. On top of that some of the keys are producing mischevious letters. Retyping entire sentences is getting to be onerous.

Not being one to take this impudance lying down I'm teaching it a lesson, by refusing to swap it out.

My laptop does a similar thing sometimes. I could be happily typing whilst looking at what I'm doing (i'm not that computer literate that I can look at the screen instead, lol) and when I've finished I find that the curser has sort of moved possition so I and typing in the middle of what I've already written....

Does your laptop have the touch pad or the little ball on the keyboard?
