OK -- I did something completely by accident the first time I got a touchpad. I returned it and ended up missing it so I bought another.

My original touchpad, the first time I booted the thing I remember hitting the power button several times, holding it down etc because it seemed like I was having trouble with it turning on. The next thing I know I am in some boot-time diagnostic screen which takes 20 minutes to get through.

It let me test every aspect of the touchpad in ways the live OS diagnostics didnt even touch. It even had camera diagnostics.

I assumed that was the way all touchpads came on the first time.

This one didn't do that and I can't replicate it. i want to go through it again to test the touchpad hardware in all the ways I did before.

has ANYONE else been in this boot diagnostic or know what I am talking about?
