Customer Question

My asus laptop i bought in April keeps changing the date, and sometimes the time of day on its own. It does the date on avg of at least weekly, sometime more often.
Another problem is that the curser jumps to somewhere in the paragraph that I have completed all on its own, usually after i pause typing for a few seconds, i usually don't notice till i have started typing again and then have to go back and correct.
Any ides on these two problems?
