    Touchpad not working on Toshiba satelite

    I have Ubuntu 13.04 (3.8.0-31-generic x86_64) installed on my Toshiba Satelite C850-1GF, which had worked fine for months, but somewhere on last month update (it's updated dailly, but i'm not sure when the problem occurred), my touchpad stoped working, no pointer nor keys.

    Code:
    $xinput
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                  id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad                     id=12    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ PIXART USB OPTICAL MOUSE                    id=9    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                       id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
        ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                 id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                                id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Video Bus                                   id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                                id=8    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ TOSHIBA Web Camera - HD                     id=10    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard                id=11    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    I've tried other solutions line http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...7#post12817247 but still it doesn't work. Any ideas on how to fix it?

    Is the mouse working, so it is only the touchpad that is dead? I have a similar Toshiba, and once I hit F5 by mistake and disabled it. It was re-enabled by a second click on that key.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A665, and the button to disable the touchpad actually works. On more that one occasion, I've thought that my pad died, only to remember a few minutes later that I disabled it last time I used it to play a game.

    Just a thought.
    Regards.
