First thing I would recommend would be to plug in an external mouse and disable the mousepad driver to see if the issue stays.
If it doesn't and the external mouse works fine, check some of these:
Have you tried using some compressed air in, on and around the keyboard and mousepad? Also using a electronics approved cleaner to clean the mousepad? You may also try uninstalling the mousepad drivers and downloading/installing the latest drivers?

First, with todays systems it is not necissary to clean the registry and can in fact be detrimental, causing random problems (like the one you are having, but registry errors may not be the actual cause).
Second, does this laptop have the little mouse stick in the middle of the keyboard? If so, try to disable it or clean the keys and anything else near the device. I would say completely disable it, as it has been my experience that those fail more often then not.

It's funny...I had turned off the mousepad before, but not fully disabled it. Now that it's fully disabled, it seems to be working for the most part, although I did just have it skip once so I'm going to keep an eye on it a bit more. I'll download a new driver as well. Thank you BKSeoul
I'll keep the registry comment in mind and not clean it anymore! Thanks for that wing987!
As for a mouse stick, it luckily doesn't have one of those, so that's not the issue.
