Jumping jittery mouse cursor when using laptop trackpad

Hello,

I am having a issue with my HP lap top. For some reason the mouse jumps to different parts of the screen at random and therefore does stuff like close applications, jumps to another program, etc.
 
I have disabled both the button mouse and the track pad, and I’ve disabled the touch screen too, but it still jumps about, even if I unplug the external mouse that I normally use.  I think the operating system may need to be re-installed?
 
I have a Hewlett Packard Elitebook 2740p running Windows 7.

Please help!

could be the virus that causing your laptop acting weired, can have a try to reformat and make your laptop to be come as clean as a new PC. If the problems occur again, might be the touchpad is faulty, go back to the manufacturer and ask for the replacement / checking if still under warranty.

None of these solutions worked. I'm going to try backing up and reinstalling the OS to rule out software issue.
