The most common reason for this behaviour is that you are accidentally brushing the touchpad while typing you could try reducing the touch pad sensitivity or even covering the touchpad with a small piece of fabric or paper even

Probably your wrist is activating the touchpad without you being aware of it, there is a program called TouchFreeze that you can install to prevent this happening.

BTW, I was convinced that I'd been sold a dyslexic Laptop until I learned the cause!.
