    I'm not sure how to explain this problem. When I'm in tablet mode and try to enter, the words will start duplicating, the cursor moves on me, and other bizarre things happen. For example, if I try to write caught, it will write caughtcaught. I end up putting the keyboard back on, which defeats the purpose of having a tablet. I've searched for any known issues about this and can't find any. Any ideas how to fix this?

    You may have interference problems with your touch screen. Does it work exactly the same way when you are away from your regular work location, or outside? People have reported fluorescent lighting systems, when poorly grounded or configured, causing this kind of trouble.

    Thank you for your reply. That's really interesting. I will test it out in different locations.

    Electrical "ground" problems could be the problem. Let us know.
