Aspire M5 481PT Touchpad issues

So I'm still having trouble with my touchpad. Sometimes when I boot up the laptop the touchpad will be very un-responsive. It wont be as sensitive, 2 finger scrolling wont work etc....I have to reboot the laptop to get it to function correctly. I have the latest drivers. Any suggestions?

If rebooting your computer resolves your touchpad unresponsiveness, it sounds as if some type of software is causing the unresponsiveness. You may try reloading your system using the instructions at If that does not resolve your issue and you are using the latest version of your touchpad's driver, you may need to contact warranty support for your region to require about repair.
