is this a separate mouse or the touchpad  mouse? test with an usb mouse
you can test if it happens with a live cd also  -here a couple :

ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/knoppix-dvd/KNOPPIX_V7.0.4bootonly-2012-08-20-EN.iso        Knoppix      
if it happens with these - you have hardware problems
try disconnecting the touchpad

Hello Opelraja y Mr. Nobus (We seem to be addressing the same calls today),

It appears that your laptop was damaged in transit - no dah.  Nobus' plan is a good one and should isolate the problem.

My questions to you are...  
1. How comfortable are you diving into your laptop?  
    This will help us determine which direction to guide you.
2. Can you take a picture of the 'manufacture's label' (Generally located underneath the unit) so that we can see what make, model and part number your unit is.

Rojosho...
