Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Hi my touchpad pointer gets crazy, it starts moving, jumping from place to place and opens and closes windows after 30 minute usage. I formated the HD. It used to run on 32 bit Vista but now I put Windows xp 2002 with 3 sp on it and is still doing it. Do you know what it is and how to fix it? Thank you!
