are the correct drivers installed? go in device manager and see if there is any yellow exclamation marks beside any thing.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD

Is the little light above the trackpad orange or blue? On my dv9000 there's a light above the trackpad along with a button, if it's orange that means the touchpad is disabled, press the button and the light should turn blue (meaning the touchpad is enabled). It is so that you don't move the mouse if you're using the keyboard (and an external mouse).
