Try to update the BIOS, and also see if the CPU is overheating... Dust in the Fan, Bad Fan or Fan not seated correctly. The BIOS my be triggering a safty feature, make sure all fans are working at full speed. If that doesnt work... maybe a short in the MB.
Not sure of a user cause for the fan to run full speed, unless you are using the laptop in a high heat environment, or setting it on a bed or other area where it is not getting adequet cooling air. If it does it right away, when you turn it on , cold, then there might be a laptop hardware problem. If you leave your laptop on all the time, then you might be inducing the problem. I had a HP high performance laptop, that the fans would not turn on at all till it ran an hour or so, then they would stay on loud for 10 or 15 minutes, then shut off, then cycle.
You mean the touch pad. It could be a harhware prob or a software prob. Take a backup of your data and re-install the OS from the backup DVDs. If it is SW prob then that should be sorted out. If a HW prob then you would know. Visit the service centre.
