The track pad buttom not working

Hey everyone,

 I have a BB curve, and for some reason the track pad  just stopped working. I am very gentle with my

BB and I don not really understand what could possibly happened. It is completely frozen on the left up side of the screen on the " search" option ( the hand lenses icon).


I already turned it off-on and I also removed the battery , and  it is still in the same position.

I can receive calls, and make calls using the speed dial letter/pad. What can I do/try?

Please help!!!

Thanks in advance.
