Hi everyone, I will bug your head a little with this touchpad problem
4days ago my touchpad stopped working! Just like that.
First I wanted to go in device manager and check for driver updates and etc but touchpad was not listed among the pointing devices, only my usb mouse was listed. After I would remove my usb mouse the entire tab for pointing devices would vanish. My touchpad just dissapeared.
In windows 10 settings, under mouse and touchpad controls there were no touchpad options either.
After googleing I found out that my lapy uses synaptic touchpad drivers. I tried instaling them and found them on two sources. One source had just 640kb for driver, I tried that one but it said that it was already installed. Then I found synaptic driver from the synaptic website and that one had 300mb drivers, that one installed but did nothing. Toucpad was stll not working.
Anyway before all this happened like a week before I was planning on buying a new SSD and installing win10 all over again. So after failing to fix touchpad I decided that it was time to do what I wanted for quite some time.
I went and bought brand new Patriot Blast 240GB SSD and replaced my old HDD. I booted my win10 os from DVD and started installation.
Hoping that whatever driver problem with my touchpad was would be fixed by removing the entire HDD along with the OS and installing everything new from the start.
After win10 DVD loaded and instalation started. On the first windows instalation screen you get to choose the langunage, time zone and etc.
THERE WAS NO POINTER! Touchpad was not working, again!
I inserted my usb mouse and lucky me pointer appeared immediatly!
And after windows instalation, touchpad is still not working, in device manager there is no touchpad. But in windows 10 touchpad and mouse settings there is. In these win10 settings I can see touchpad and it is turned on.
Any ideas how to fix this? Is this software issue or did my touchpad die?
Btw, pardon my bad english it is not my native languange
