No Control of Scrolling and Cursor

My Sony VAIO notebook suddenly has become unusable. When I click on the left
touchpad clickerwhile the pointer is on the scroll bar, the page should move
downwards. It DOESN'T. The page jumps back to the top immediately after
releasing the click button. That happens as well using the arrow buttons.
They work momentarily but immediately, the screen scrolls to the top of a web
page.

Also, when I try to type into a box, the cursor jumps to the left extreme,
causing words to form backwards.

Finally, on the desktop, the highlight defaults to the upper left icon. I
cannot select and click on any other icon. As soon as I highlight another
icon, the highlighter defaults to the My Documents icon and only seldom does
a quick double click result in the desired program opening. Usually My Docs
opens.

Any thoughts?

Since you've already tried updating drivers and the change was sudden,
unless you can correlate it to something else you installed it is
probably a hardware issue. In that case, call Sony tech support.
