I'm having similar problems with an HP Pavilian dv5220, and with a bluetooth mouse dongle plugged into the right side usb port it works just fine. What I'd like to do is totally disable that synaptics pad as its way too sensitive, making it impossible to type more than a line or 2

Enable the proper USB options, point X/GPM to /dev/input/mouse1 - or whatever.

It'd be nice if you could do this for keyboards too - but AIUI, you can't.
