To correct the problem, you can bring your computer to the CNS Helpdesk and have the touchpad/palmrest repaired. That will fix the problem with the touchpad and allow you to use it normally.
Thanks for your quick reply
I'll be sure to bring it down to CNS.
I just have a question though: if it were something stuck there, then why does the left-click button associated with the Trackpoint not work when I enable both the touchpad and Trackpoint?
