Jumppy Cursor (Does not have to do with typing) Z560

I have a Z560 I have been having trouble with, when I first got the laptop a while back I noticed if my palm touched the rest, at times the touchpad would not respond, and I would have to lift my palm to get it to track again, I thought it was odd and a bit annoying but went on about whatever I was doing. However it has now gotten really bad, the cursor will now jump all over, I can have nothing else touching the computer, other than a single finger (NOT moving) on the touchpad and it will be jumping all over the screen, I uploaded a video so you can see what I mean, from 9 seconds to about 21 seconds, all I have is one finger in the touchpad and I am not moving it, I am keeping it as still as I can but you can see how much it moves, it makes clicking on anything just about impossible.

 

I have run through many things, tried messing with tracking settings, uninstalling and reinstalling drivers etc without any luck, suggestions anyone?

As stated in my post, I had already uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, as well as adjusted mouse settings with no effect. Thanks for the input though.

touchpad drivers are the latest and have been uninstalled and reinstalled.

 

Also of note, now if I make sure my palm in in contact with the metal rest of the laptop while I am using the touchpad it seems to work normal, however once I move or lift my palm, it starts jumpping all over again.
