it is an uncommon problem, but I think I know whats wrong with it, there is damage to the sensor on the scratch pad or possibly even dust in the membrane. its not a case of software fix, it would need a new sensor pad. I would return it to the refurbisher if I was you.
The problem is very simple. The sensitivity of the mouse pad is too high in your laptop i guess. Try adjusting the sensitivity of the mouse. Go to control panel-> mouse options->mouse sensitivity. Try changing the double clicking speed, mouse sensitivity etc and check your mouse operation now.
Check if you have any button on panel says about to lock the keys and mouse? Use your manual book if you have one. Lenovo has got this buttons that locks the keys and mouse to prevent unautorized use while you are away. Possible located next to the audio or power button.
Most pc's use a program named symnaptics touch pad. Go to the control panel, select the mouse tab then mouse properties and device settings (select disable). Here you can disable the touch pad. I would recommend you have a usb mouse up and running prior to doing this procedure (saves tons of headache).
In my mind it's just a couple things. The mouse or the port. Hopefully you haven't removed(or plugged in) the mouse plug when the laptop was turned on. [Only a USB can be plugged/unplugged when the computer is on.] Try getting a new mouse. If that doesn't work you may have to have it taken in and have it looked at. Good luck.
If you go to the Gateway computers support site there may be updated drivers or software for your tablet pc that allows tweaking the mouse pad adjustments (with more refinement possible than was on your tablet originally).
It is also possible that the pad is experiencing wear / mechanical problems.
I think the pen has gone bad on you, since your screen can still detect your hand and the track pad. I would think the pen is faulty. Try another pen cause I think your original is bad, if it was the touch feature that wasn't working I would say its a driver problem but that feature still works with the exception of the pen. Get another pen.
Great job, I myself prefer to use a extra mouse rather then the built in one, if you chose to do this it wont work right away but if you give it a moment to recognize the mouse it will then be functionable.
