comment Change touchpad horizontal and vertical acceleration/sensitivity?
@TheRookierLearner: You could try to play around with settings by using the program xinput, maybe it'll work for you.

comment How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?)
"When you install Windows, Windows assumes it's the only OS on the machine--or at least it doesn't account for Linux." So this is Windows's fault? Isn't Linux the one that always overwrites the MBR with GRUB and yells at you if you try to install it to a partition boot sector instead?

comment Ubuntu 13.04 on UEFI system with Windows Boot Manager as the main loader
I was worried that might be the answer. :( +1 thanks for the detailed response. If there's no other way then I have to install GRUB I guess -- but the question in my mind is now, how do I go back to the Windows boot loader once I have done so? That's also part of what scares me. There's lots of tutorials telling me how to install GRUB but none of them tell me how to return the laptop to its previous state, so it makes me even more reluctant to install GRUB.
