Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now.

That is a stuck function key meaning you need a new touchpad on the unit. You could try and unplug it for a minute to reset it or try and unseat and reseat the ribbon cable from the touchpad to the computer board. Otherwise here is a link to the part.
