Is it perhaps identified as another mouse?

it only sees a mouse if i plug one in.
if it wasn't for the fact that the touchpad works in diagnostics, and was working perfectly until i restarted after the windows update. I would swear it is broken.

it's still in warranty, but the timing for sending it in, is just awful.

i'm going to back up all my work and try to reinstall windows 10, not convinced it will work though, as there seems to be a lot of touchpad errors on windows 8 & 10

Restarted. Still no touchpad.

And at least this time it gave me a list of programmes it was removing.

if only i could fix the touchpad problem.

apparently i need to wait for bios update to make sure i can put ubuntu on here with no problems.
been doing reading on it.
but thats all i need.
there is an update out but i can't apply it with windows 10 on here, if i had only known i would have done it with windows 8 when i first got the netbook.

it'll be sorted soon i hope,

With something like WinAero Tweaker, you can disable updates, on W10. Let others find the fukkups, first, kinda thing.

Not doing themselves any favours, trying to get people, like me, who refuse to move to W10, are they?

windows 10, actually runs very well, far better than 8. I'm on the fence about whether it is better than 7.
BUT
these forced updates are bad, even back when i was using xp. i had to occasionally choose to ignore/hide an update as it would mess up a graphics driver or something.

I get the "must stay up to date" because of bugs,glitches, viruses and so on, but when an update actually breaks a new machine, with new devices with regularly updated drivers, something is wrong.
and yes, warn you that certain apps/programs won't work anymore, but allow you to delay an update so you can source other things, make back ups, or even wait for new versions of certain software to come out.

i can't recover the info on my work diary, i've tried.
i'm just glad it wasn't too full.
