psmouse.c: bad data from KBC - timeout bad parity


Hi all,

Since about 4 days ago I've been having problems with my touchpad, and - I think - keyboard. Basically, I lose control of them, and after a short time everything siezes up.

Since this problem persists even when I use a live-cd (I tried SimplyMepis 3.3 and DSL), and has remained through a complete reinstallation of my Ubuntu "Hoary" system, I imagine the problem may be hardware related.

The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A60 302 (less than a year old) and the persistent error message is: psmouse.c: bad data from KBC - timeout bad parity

This renders the computer next to useless at the moment.
I've done all of the googling that I could, but found little that wasn't way beyond my powers of comprehension.

Could anyone decode the message for me: what's going on?
And what kinds of solutions might I be considering?

Thanks in advance,

Declan
