How can I correct Unstable, erratic mouse cursor movement

I currently have a dual boot setup with Windows 7 Pro 64 and XUbuntu 64 bit XFCE desktop.

 

On random occasions, the mouse pointer will begin to float and or will not stay positioned on the spot selected.  This occurs with or without an external mouse attached.  The track pointer will not control the mouse and neither the left nor right keys just below the keyboard function.  The drifting will stop sometimes when the center key at the bottom of the keyboard is pressed.

 

The touchpad and its keys seem to work correctly.  I have turned off both of these in the BIOS and have not had any problems.  It seems to me that the problem may be with the keyboard.

 

Any body have any experience with this sort of problem?

Re: How can I correct Unstable, erratic mouse cursor movement

 I am having the  same problem on my T440p with ubuntu 14.O4 LTS , i had to disable my touch pad and work with external mouse. When i enable the touchpad the cursor moves randomly and its difficult to keep it in one place.
