The touchpad problem is quite something else. Most likely it's either a setting, a driver issue or a mechanical issue. Impossible to tell from a distance. Did you check your settings? Is the program that handles the touchpad running (with my Dell here, it's called Apoint,.exe, but most likely it's different with you)?
