How to adjust keyboard sensitivity

How can I fix or adjust the keypad of my new Dell laptop to prevent the cursor from jumping to other spaces, other lines, highlighted blocks of text, even calling up random functions. In the user's guide installed on the HD there are instructions for adjusting the touch pad, but not the keyboard. Over at Dell Hell I find nothing. I'm on the road, limited Internet access, could use some personal experience.

The power connector to my G4 Powerbook is almost dead. It only charges in one very specific position, and I have to twist it around for a few seconds to find the sweetspot (rotating it in situ). Nothing is loose and nothing is visibly wrong. I tried squeezing the metal sleeve slightly to make it more elliptical in the hope this would create a tighter connection, but it made no difference.

Printing Away From Home?

Now that I have a laptop, I'd like to be able to study away from home. The only problem is I print a lot of my documents to read hard copies. Is there a program out there (free, cheap or otherwise) that would allow me to press "print" on the road, save my print list and then when I plug into my printer, print it all out at once? If I try with the normal printing spooler, I keep getting error messages. [more inside]
