hi there guys,
I really need some help. a few days ago my touchpad has stopped working after an update in the latest ubuntu. It is working in win7 (dual boot) so i know its not a hardware fault. My pal at work says it is probaly a driver issue. Ok so today i went and brought a mouse and have been trying to fix this. But i am in way over my head, Im a total noob when it comes to linux. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE could someone give me step by step instructions on how to find and update my touchpad driver . i am running a hp pavillion dv7 ( http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/HP_Pavilion_dv7-1080 ). im dual booting the latest ubuntu and win 7.
Guys your my last hope before turning back to the dreaded windows
Regards and thanks for taking the time to read this
