    Lightbulb Freezed Trackpad CTRL+FN+F7 everytime

    Hi Folks,

    I have shifted to Ubuntu 12.04 two weeks ago on my new netbook. I have been using windows all my life. I have got aquainted myself with this awesome forums and online support documentation that ubuntu has hosted.

    The problem i am facing is, my trackpad gets freezed everytime i stratup the machine. I have to press CTRL+FN+F7 everytime I startup the netbook so that it starts working. Well I know this is not so genuine issue, yet its kind of irritating for a person other than me using my netbook.

    Is there any permanent fix for the same? Is there any nice cool code that i can run in terminal and its done forever?

    Some Details might Help:

    Acer V-5 121 Netbook
    AMD 1.7 Ghz processor, 2GB RAM

    The Ubuntu 12.04 is the only OS running. Everything else is cool other than the above issue.

    Check that your BIOS does not have an option to disable the Trackpad by default.

    I checked the BIOS but there is no option to disable or enable the trackpad.
