    If I hadn't experienced "my" issues, I would never have believed it. But even my computer from work will not regisert finger movements properly when placed on the table, rendering it useless. Once in my lap, it's fine 99% of the time. Weird.

    The lady who told me that yarn had worked on that computer as a systems analyst. She wasn't personally in the room when it happened, but it was one of the legends of the shop. She told me a bunch of other tall tales as well. How many of them are true I have no way of knowing.

    Sounds a bit like the blonde who went to the doctor, complaining of being sore all over. She said it hurt everywhere she touched herself.
    Doc checked her over and couldn't find anything wrong.


    Turned out she had a broken finger. :rolleyes:

    Workaround

    If you haven't fixed it by now, get an external mouse. I use a Logitech M905 - works on glass too!

    Have you checked to make sure the driver is up to date? Trackpad driver, that is!
