Ubuntu: Screen behaving erratically with a list of problems..Tap to click wont work,etc


I have a hp laptop dual booted with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04.Sometimes it behaves erratically showing a list of problems all together.Rest of the time it acts normal.

1)Tap to click on touch pad won't work

2)Every page scrolls automatically to the extreme top even when scrolled down with touchpad.(even using click button).As I pull it down page goes up quickly.

3)When facing this issue my terminal displays a character combination of '^[[5~' continuously as in the image uploaded here (was taken in middle of an instalation)

4)Lists on webpages like search suggestions and all highlights up and down in a random fashion out of control.

It feels as if the laptop is posessed.The same issues are faced in windows too(don't know about the terminal thing in windows.have not used cmd)

Thought it was the issue with touch pad and so ran this

synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2  

This would sometime reduce it for few minutes and again it starts.

Is there anything I can do?
