Question Touchpad pointer wiggles Ubuntu 10.04


I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on a Compaq Presario X1012QV 1.3GHz with touchpad and scroll pad to the right of the touchpad. I am experiencing a wiggling pointer (moves a few pixel left/right) when I rest my finger on the touchpad and it's very annoying. I can not find a solution online. I am new to the linux world, I would appreciate any help !!!!

Best Regards,

I have the system set up for dual boot. WinXP does not show this problem. I have tried older distro's and this problem does not occur.
