    Cant update touchpad driver

    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

    Hey, I know you're frustrated -- but give folks a chance to respond, OK. The rule around here is one bumping per 24 hours, not once every couple of hours. Your best response might come from someone 12 hours away from you.

    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Meanwhile, can you not just stick a usb mouse in and use that? (personally hate touchpads and laptop keyboards)
