Does this laptop have a trackpad?
If so, try disabling that before you begin typing. As you type and brush against the pad this can cause the cursor to jump, or other strange actions, especially if it accepts 'gestures', eg a certain gesture might emulate the Home or Page Down button, or similar.
My laptop has a button next to the trackpad which when pushed disables it whilst I type, but in any case I have disabled it permanently and now use a USB mouse. I was forever brushing the pad with my wrist or other parts of my hand and losing work.
