I got a nasty problem with my 8530w, the touchpad an also external mouses (tried logitech LX3 and one from HP) aren't working properly (despite I un- and installed the drivers for several times new!)
Sometimes the mouseclick is kind of deactivated, I can click to close a window, but instead of closing it, the window just gets deactiviated (but its still open, i have to switch to it with Alt + Tab). Also sometimes the middle-mousebutton is locked, so i cant click something in firefox/word/or wathever, i can just scroll...
this thing is really annoying, can anyone help me?
thanks to all
(excuse my english...)
p.s.: i'll try to make a screenshot, but at the moment all is ok...

If you can borrow or locate a two-button mouse and install the standard driver from the HP website, you *might* have better luck. This is just a guess, though, but it's worth looking into *if* you installed a driver for a 3-button mouse.
Also, make sure you have the proper Synaptics Touchpad driver installed. These drivers are available on the HP.com web site. Seach on 8530w from the home page and follow the leads to the 8530w software, drivers and documentation.

i tried to use the notebook with a docking station, external mouse/keyboard and monitor, then all was ok.

I now got screenshots, maybe they help solving my problem... In the jpg you can see three different cases:
1) normal: close-button is highlightet when you point with the mouse on it
2) close-button isn't highlightet when the problem with the mouse occurs
3) after clicking the close-button when the problem occurs. the window still is open but isn't active anymore...
can anyone think of an solution?

Are you also using the external keyboard without the docking station? If not, when you put the laptop in the docking station *and* also add an external keyboard, you are changing two things at once.
I assume these are USB keyboards and mice. Do you have any yellow marks in Device Manager when they are attached to the laptop outside of the docking station?

With Linux (Ubuntu 8.10) you can report all your mouse events. This showed me that if I pressed a mouse button the event "Button pressed" came simultaneously but the event "Button released" had a delay of more than 10 seconds sometimes... So it had nothing to do with the running OS and neither with the touchpad (the technician replaced it).

then they replaced the whole keyboard (incl. the little pointing stick). didn't helped either.
at last they replaced the whole notebook, which finally helped :)
