This is a known issue with Latitude C600's. I replace these quite often @ my J
O B ;)
Dell generally sends out the keyboard(for the touchstick), and the palmrest(for
the touchpad) as a replacement. Honestly though the problem is really related
to the keyboard only. The touchstick has some issues with the solder joints
there.. Give Dell a call, and they should take care of you, if that guy is
still under warranty, though the part is not very expensive to purchase, if
need be.
