What i found was that both the pen and touch and the ELAN drivers were watching the touchpad and they were both trying to move the mouse. The jumping around was the result of the two fighting each other.

Now it is actually a really nice touchpad.

My first recommendation is to go to your computer manufacture website support and download your computer updates.
All I did was update the Touchpad drivers. Mine were missing so when these were installed the problem disappeared.
