I had the same problem with the cursor jumping around. My cousin bought the same computer and had the same problem! What she told me to do was go to the touchpad icon on the bottom right. Then click tapping and then check the box that says "tap off when typing."
It seems to have worked for us.

I have the same model and had the same problem. Fortunately there is a simple fix - unplug all your USB devices (mouses, printers etc). It should now boot!
Assuming that fixed it, it was trying to boot from a USB drive for some unknown reason. I think it was due to the latest windows XP update. Wierd. Hit F12 next time you reboot and make sure it is booting from hard disk first.

In most cases like that,where we have screen flickering,first look at the graphics card maybe the signal flex from the back of the screen is well fixed on the motherboard.then if it is well fixed on the board you will need to look at the signal board at the back of the screen maybe it is well fixed if it is not well fixed then fix it properly to solve ur problem then if the problem still persist then u will need to disable the VGA in device manager.to get to device manager u will need to open my computer and after that, u can right-click on it and then click on propertise then click on hardware and then click on device manager where u can disable the VGA.

We can find out if its the Video card if you have a monitor around. There should be a VGA plug on the back of your laptop if you plug that in and turn on the PC. If you still don't see anything onscreen try pressing <FN> + and <F5> together to swap displays. If theres no display after that then you do likely have a faulty video card. If you do git a picture on the external monitor, try the display swap key combination a couple of times and see if the LCD screen comes on. If not you likely have a faulty LCD screen or a backlight that has gone bad.
If the Notebook has faulty components I would recommend taking it to a certified repair facility. In the US I know Best buy and Circuit City are authorized repair facilities.
Hope this helps
