I have a wierd problem!!!!!!!!!!
my touchpad pointer goes crazy time to time. It doesnot move in the direction i desire....rather up and down and jumping from one position to another and all by itself.(gets hyperactive as if it is stoned)
I have Vista business and fedora 8 installed.
At first the problem was only in vista....fedora seemed not affected by it.( this means my touchpad is not damaged). I formatted the whole computer thinking it must be some kind of virus...but the problem still persisted...........so what i did was opened my laptop pulled out the motherboard battery even shortcircuited the poles.....and installed vista and fedora again........this didnt solve the problem rather made it worse....pointer in fedora has started going crazy too......i even flashed my Bios.....installed synaptics latest driver.....doesnt help......(I rule out any possibility of hardware or software conflict because even fresh install had the problem).
Some forum suggested putting the laptop in refrigeretor to cool it ( salads and laptop together....modern computing
).....i did that without any success.
I have cleaned the touchpad. ( more cleaning and i could use it as mirror for my bathroom)
Is it only me facing the problem???????
I have run out of option.......can anyone help.
Mouse seems fine.....but i hate using mouse.......(seems i will be left with no other option than drag that pooor creauture with me)
