Some mouse drivers allow you to configure their sensitivity and some actually have an option to disable the mouse while typing. Look in the Control Panel or for a touchpad icon in the Notification Area (near the clock) for your mouse settings.

It's a laptop so you have a touchpad located below the keyboard. That's probably what's giving you problems, so check your mouse settings for touchpad sensitivity options. You may even have an option available to disable the touchpad when an external mouse is plugged in. If you use a USB mouse, that would probably work best for you.
