Laptop Vista middle of screen not responsive

  1. Hello,
    I am a bit stumped at the moment.
    My mums asus F3M Laptop developed a problem and kept crashing with a memory error. I replaced the 2x 512 with 2x 1gig and wiped and reset to factory settings. Reinstalled vista and updated bios.

    The problem I have found is that I cannot click on anything towards the middle of the screen, if I can drag it to one side I can click but some boxes come up to small to find a bit to drag by and so I end up with an open box in the middle of the screen. Key shortcuts work.
    Not really sure what to do next. Am currently downloading graphics driver.

    All I have installed is Norton security and office 2007.
    Thanks

    dont most laptops come with the drivers/software preinstalled for the "touchpad" thingy? Maybe that got wiped is all i can think off.

    Still not sure what happened, but with graphics driver installed problem appeared to be solved.
