    The trackpad and the keyboard are separate - But the issues with the keyboard going haywire is definitely the sound of a faulty keyboard. I would replace this first.

    Fast service, glad you got the laptop working right once again. A faulty laptop keyboard CAN cause the touch pad to malfunction!
