Does it happen only under linux? If not, silly as it may seem but, is the touchpad clean? We may not realize by just looking. Trying cleaning. It happens to me at times as my desktop is also my dinner table :-p

Me to

I had the same problem when I upgraded my compaq v5000 to the linux kernel version 3. I downgraded it to linux kernel verison 2.36 and everthing was fine again.

This means there is a bug in the linux kernel that breaks things. Downgrade the kernel to version 2 for now, that should fix it.
