(Dual Boot w/ Win 7)
HP Pav. g7 laptop
Just got this laptop and started writing in OO and the text will randomly jump around from where I'm typing them to almost anywhere else in the document such that I have to search for it in the middle of the last paragraph and physically drag it back to where it belongs. I also have MS Word installed and haven't noticed the same problem but the laptop is new to me and I haven't yet used Word much with it. I have used the same basic setup (OO + Word and dual boot with XP) rather extensively on several other computers and never had this problem and am trying to ascertain if this is a glitch with OO or in the laptop. As a published novelist I find this situation disconcerting but I have only three days to take the laptop back to Best Buy if the problem is with it.
Since this is the first laptop I've owned I first thought I might be me dragging my hand across the touch pad but I've disabled it in Win7 and rebooted to Ubuntu and have the same problem with the added bonus of my graphics being screwed. I don't have that problem elsewhere (this post is acting normally) but OO was just installed two days ago so I wouldn't think a re-installation would be necessary. I haven't found anything in OO Help for repairing such a glitch and I'm open to any suggestions.
I hope this post is making sense but without knowing where else to look this is about all I can say about it.
