Bad driver.  Also do you have your laptop setup to disable the Touchpad, when you plug in a mouse, or is it still enabled while a mouse is plugged in?  Suggest uninstalling the Touchpad device, in Device Manager, then let Windows reinstall.  If it still exhibits the same behavior, then most likely the sensor pad is screwed up, and you may need to contact Samsung to have the unit serviced.
