You should be able to use a USB mouse to use your laptop. Should AID in you getting a better diagnosis of what is actually wrong. Also you could boot from leopard and reinstall MAC OSX to ensure that somehow the drivers did not become corrupted.

If this all fails it could be water damage.

Let us know!

Cheers!

No anything that is water damage is void from warranty. This wouldn't be a terribly difficult DIY fix though. Ebay sells the parts you would need for the repair. Apple won't charge you anything to diagnose it. So if you have any apple stores close to you I would recommend having them take a look at it.

If it's two months old, it's covered under warranty. Take it back. They'll let you know if was water damage. You have nothing to lose.
