[HP xe4500] mouse, touchpad and multi keys trouble

Hello people,

I've some problems with my mouse/ mousepad/ and multimedia keys @ mine HP xe4500 laptop.

The problem is that when I startup with a ps/2 mouse I first have to move te mouse +/- 10 times from the left to the right before he will work. Or up of down

Second problem is that my tochpad wo'nt klik when I tap the surface. Also the scrollbar at the side of it won't work.

Third problem is that my multimedia keys don't work, except the mail, www and vol up & down. mute and the other 3 keys that can be programmed won't this is possible because omke hasn't released the source for kernel 2.6.0

Someone who can help me with this?
