Geekbench uses the CPUID SDK (the same SDK that powers CPU-Z) to
provide accurate system information. My guess is that part of the
CPUID SDK is conflicting with the driver for your mousepad, causing
it to lock up.
I'll follow up with the CPUID SDK folks, and I'll look into
getting you a build of Geekbench that doesn't use the CPUID SDK so
you can benchmark your system.
