This reply isn`t going to be much help to resolve the problem but I am posting because this issue is a continual problem...I also had this and also re-installed everything but to no avail...I went online and found many users experience this issue...it is the synaptics device and I have not read of one resolution...in the end I uninstalled the synaptics device and use a wireless mouse which at least doesn`t jump all over the place and works as it should...it is worth a thought maybe.

This can happen when you unintentionally turn of the touch pad on the laptop, I remember the AS5517 using a hotkey combination to toggle the touchpad. Try Fn(Function) + F7

The laptop uses a hotkey combination, you will have to use it with the FN key (located next to the spacebar on your laptop) + F7 key on the top row of the keyboard.
By the way, caret browsing is a feature of Internet Explorer, the shortcut key to enable caret browsing is F7, when in Internet Explorer

Close all the open IE windows, hold down the Fn key and press the F7 key.
