    i have an issue with the trackpad, it "locks" every once in awhile and only scrolls

    sort of like when you put one finger on the trackpad and scroll with the other one

    The only thing I could think of that would happen is when you click with the middle mouse button (scroll wheel) in windows, and it locks into place and the only way to get out of using the entire mouse to scroll is to click again on the middle mouse button.

    My trackpad usually works fine only for a few minutes before it starts acting really strange. Then it will start to move really fast or not at all. It's really annoying. I've given up and use a wireless mouse when in XP. :dunno:

    Yea, I've noticed that as well. New driver should fix it.
