laptop keyboard dies

I'm a complete newby and I recently installed Redhat 9 on my Gericom
Overdose 2 laptop. I am using a USB mouse rather than the touchpad.
Whenever I accidentally touch the touchpad however, the keyboard
dies, i.e. I can no longer type anything.
Does anyone have any idea what this may be due to and how to fix it?
