Aloha Woj,

I had the same problem with a touchpad on a HP Mini netbook.

There was a switch on the top of the touchpad that you can turn off and 
use a wireless mouse with no issues. (The touch pad is not good to use 
as it is made to perform click when touched as well as move the 
mouse.)(really dumb idea IMHO)
