does the problem occur only in Word or in general on your computer?

Do you have a mouse connected to your laptop and if yes, is it turned on? It might be caused directly by your mouse (i.e. defected laser - quirky surface).

If not mouse is present, can you normally use the touchpad at all times otherwise? Does your laptop (along with the touchpad) become too hot? You can disable the touchpad on any laptop without the need for third-party software. Just go to your Mouse settings from your Windows Control Panel.

Cursor keeps skipping to where mouse pointer is.
I'm having a VERY frustrating problem with my mouse settings (presumably), although I have no idea what to change to make it stop (I've changed everything related to what it might be). While I'm typing text into any program (email, Word, etc), the cursor will auto-move to wherever the mouse...
