Erratic touchpad

I have an erratic touchpad on my laptop, it is a Synaptics touchpad on an Advent laptop.

Basically, when I touch the pad, quite often the curser will jump from one place to another, or sometimes will go back towards its original position when I remove my finger.

Does this sound like a settings or driver problem? The pad is clean without any dust build-up.

Any help appreciated.

Driver may be corrupt. Have you a Optic mouse connected? if so try with it removed. If none of these sort it Go to Laptop web Site to see if there are any new drivers for touch pad
