I have a Gateway MT6831 laptop which had a faulty motherboard 4 months ago and was replaced under warranty.
However, the touchpad stopped working today and the warranty expired one week ago. Murphy strikes, ONCE AGAIN.....
I reintalled the driver, performed system restore, reinstalled Vista, and nothing.... I have to use an external USB mice.
I checked under control panel ad device manager and there is not even a yellow question mark, it that not eve detect the touchpad....
I just purchased an used palmrest assembly with touchpad from Ebay, hoping that I would be able to detach the touchpad from it, howver it seems that it is fixed...... so I would have to swap the whole part. Is it a task dificult to perform?
Someone told me that he does not think it is a touchpad issue, he said that probably is the Mother Board..... ARGH, once again, could it be possible?
Any help would be gldly appreciated.
