Hi there, i am having some freezing issues with my hp laptop. i am running windows XP professional. In order for the computer to run at all i have to push down either directly on the trackpad or to the left of it which seems to be above where my RAM is. I already tried unplugging and replugging in the RAM and even the HArd Drive but the issue still persists. Any ideas? Thanks.

There are many threads in many fforums describing exactly what you say. Usually on HP laptops. Allthe solutions required electrical contacts on the mobo below the part of keyboard pressed being re-soldered sort of thing.

This is a warranty or repair job IMHO.
