Yes, google for it.


can you buy new ones??

Probably, try Fleabay.

And if it's anything like Dell there are probably videos on Youtube showing you how replace it.
I have been touched by his noodly appendage.

it doesn't really go tu it just sort of stops and then if i do a circle on tp it with then move again, hardly ideal if you've got a pair of kings and you need to get all your chips on the table :( :(

Plug a mouse in instead?

Logs, as you ought to know by now, are found in /var/log. But changes in system status can often be seen by running dmesg in a terminal shortly after the critical event.
