Cursor + Typing Problems

My Larbook is 8 months old.

  1. Frequently the cursor just disappears. I have to turn off the computer to get it back but it happens everyday now & it has become very annoying.

  2. And often when I start up the computer and try to type in my password nothing happens. The computer just does not type. Again i have to turn off and restart the laptop.

Does anyone else have these problems and know a solution?
