Question about Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop
Regular answer for this problem is to update BIOS / Touchpad drivers. Since you have already disabled the internal touch pad, can you also check if you have a track-stick that needs to be disabled. That should fix your problem!

SOURCE: cursor on my keypad jumps around
If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:
1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
c. Click Mouse.
d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.
e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
f. Click OK.
g. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.
4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.
5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.
