Here's the contents of /proc/bus/input/devices

Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2005-11-10 18:56:52 UTC
That seems to be in order - please attach /etc/X11/xorg.conf and look in dmesg
for any obvious input/serio related messages.

Please can you back up the xorg.conf and run system-config-display --reconfig
and attach the generated configuration.
