Hey all,

I moved my system from Windows 7 to Ubuntu and everything works perfectly it seems except the touchpad... this does not work at all. It is an electro-static multi-touch pad for the Sony Vaio VPCEB33FM/BJ Model. Any help would be much appreciated.

Here’s the fix:

1. Edit /etc/default/grub to include GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”i8042.nopnp”
2. Run: sudo update-grub
3. Reboot.

I'm having a similar problem... sort of. I use my laptop and the touchpad on it works fine, but the cursor will randomly disappear and appear some where else on the screen. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks if you can.

Hi, I have a VPCEE33EL and the same problem too.
I'm an Ubuntu user from 2 years ago but I don't understand so much.

I have to open a terminal and write: edit /etc........ ?

Please guide me step by step.
Thank you very much.

Best regards.

Oaty, when I did as you suggest, I got:

bill@bill-VPCEE3WFX:~$ sudo update-grub
[sudo] password for bill:
/etc/default/grub: 1: #: not found

I'm running ubuntu 10.10 and the laptop model is VPCEB33FM.
Thanks

1. Open Terminal
2. Type in: sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
3. Enter your password
4. Add a line at the bottom that says: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”i8042.nopnp”
5. Save the file
6. Back in terminal type: sudo update-grub
7. Reboot
