Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

My guess would be, as it was for me on my Samsung RV511...that the touch pad is in direct relation to the hand (thumb) position when typing. There should be an fn key short cut to temporarily turn off touch pad. On mine it the fn key + touch pad symbol on the top row of keys. This allows me to type effortlessly with out my cursor going bonkers.

Best is to use a little $10 mouse and deactivate the touchpad which is a pain anyhow.
