@Mumbodog, your answer has supposedly given me hope on the possibility of a BIOS update (the default/original one leaves me dry mouthed), and also hope for finding good product support information. In future if I decide to move for Win7 (for some good reason), it'd be handy.
Can anyone tell if some PUEL based recovery-CD (like the Hiren's rescue disk or whatever it was called), can be used to run the Rompaq's to update BIOS ? That allows me to temporarily go into Windows, to do the BIOS update. Would stay away from it, if it can brick the laptop.
@dev_tech, for the moment, I am sticking to Ubuntu, and reading up on gsynaptics, synapticsdaemon etc., things look promising. I hope that they do solve my problem. There seem to be a large no. of parameters that can be tweaked, so it's going to be some fun experimentation.
If anyone has the "working well" set of synaptics parameters for this model, would be great it those could be shared.
