Z580 - touchpad and navigation issues



My laptop has had certain issues since I bought it a couple of weeks ago.


- When I click the x button in a window using the left click button on the pad, sometimes the window behind it closes as well. I tried the double click test in mouse settings and it doesn't seem like a double click is registering.


- Sometimes when I open a new window in Firefox, it switches back to a previous window for no reason after a few seconds. This could be a software issue but I haven't experienced it outside of this computer. I've tried disabling add-ons.


- The trackpad has twice stopped working completely. The first time was for a minute. The second time was for much longer. I restored the computer to factory settings and it still didn't work. The next day it was working.


I've tried installing the latest touchpad drivers from both Lenovo and Synaptics and it didn't help. I realize these problems are all over the place and might be unrelated, but I don't know how else to present them. I appreciate any input.
