Default My keyboard jumps letters

I recently reinstalled Vista on my laptop and every now and then when I type my keyboard will skips letters or the blinking cursor will suddenly jump to an area in the sentence previously and continue on. I'm not touching the mouse pad to move the cursor, only typing.

My keys are not sticky or show any signs of wear and tear (the laptop is under 6 months old).

This just all started after I re-installed windows and installed all the updated drivers.

Thanks!

Get some canned air and spray the keyboard while having the laptop hang upside down. See if that helps.
