(I'm assuming that the touchpad options are set properly under 'Mouse Preferences')
Try installing gpointing-devices-settings and tweaking the trackpad settings from there.
On my ThinkPad T61, the touchpad stopped working in Ubuntu 11.10 & LM12 after working flawlessly for a while.
I installed gpointing-devices-settings and upon starting it for the first time, I found that the 'Disable touchpad' option was checked. (No clue why. The settings on Mouse Preferences were normal.) Upon unchecking that box, the trackpad has been working like a champ. Zero problems.
Hope that helps.

I restarted the mouse drivers by typing in terminal
sudo rmmod psmouse
sudo modprobe psmouse

1. Open a terminal
2. cd /etc/modprobe.d/ (enter)
3. gksudo gedit options.conf (enter)
4. In the text editor that pops up type: options psmouse proto=imps
5. Save the file and close it
6. sudo modprobe -r psmouse (enter)
7. sudo modprobe psmouse (enter)
I hope this works for you. You might have to hit Fn+F7.
