Random clicking on the screen of Touchsmart TM2, solutions?

[ Edited ]

When in regular notebook mode the crusor randomly jumps and clicks around on the screen at random times, especially when in slate mode and crusor jumps around when touchpad isnt touched. Some ideas for solutions I could possibly try out? Ran diagnositcs and sweeped with free virus programs but still unable to figure out the problem, any susgguestions would be great!

First thing to do is localize whether the problem is with the touchpad or the touchscreen.  Does it stop jumping around when you disable the touchpad?  If not, it's possible the touchpad or the touchpad connecting cable could be bad.  If not, then I would tend to suspect the touchscreen.

I recently rebooted the laptop since the random crusor jumping got so annoying and couldnt pin point the source of the problem, turned the click pad off and the problem still persists. How could i check the connecting cable to see if its bad or not?

Did this problem get solved? I also have problems with my internal wireless card (I think the antenna is shot).
