Yesterday I received my new Dell Mini 10v (CTO: Ubuntu, 6 cell and bluetooth). Nice and very well built machine, but I observed a strange behavior with the trackpad.
If the Mini 10v is powered by the AC power adapter the trackpad stops working. If I unplug the AC power adaptor the trackpad resumes working. This behavior is independent of the operating system (Ubuntu, XP, Mac OS X) .
If the Mini 10v is powered by battery everything looks fine, but if I try to use an external monitor the trackpad also stops working. If I unplug the video cable the trackpad resumes working.
Upgrading the firmware (A02) as recommended by Dell Customer Care doesn┬┤t resolved the problem. Any suggestions?
