    installed XP on my Compaq Presario 1675 laptop. noticed the touchpad/mouse has become over sensitive. It will begin to click on things without me pressing the button. Just moving my finger around the screen with the touchpad... Ideas??

    Try www.synaptics.com for drivers for Win 2K. They are working fine with my Presario 12XL325
