Hi guys, this is the first time I have used the forums properly so please let me know if I have done something wrong Ok the problem is that the track pad on my laptop has suddenly stopped working. I think it is due to a windows update, were I had a normal mouse plugged in while the update installed, not sure though. The laptop is a HP DM3-1155ea. The track pad is not showing up in device manager and none of the multi-touch features show up in the mouse control panel. I am beginning to wonder if it is a hardware issue as the button to disable the track pad doesn't do anything when pressed. Things I have tried: - System restore [won't run! just gets stuck mid restore] - msconfig [to check that drivers are loading] - Re-installing track pad drivers [didn't work] I have done some intensive googling but I can't find anyone with the same problem. Your help would be greatly valued as I need it for my A-levels. The machine is still under warranty, however I don't really want to take it back to PC world as who knows what the creeps there will do to it, probably re-install windows deleting my software. Any further questions please ask, and as I said before your help would be greatly valued. Thanks.
