Touchpad Not Working And Not Seen

Post by Malicex » Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:16 pm

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W541. I've had it for around 5 years. I decided to dual boot Linux Mint with my Windows 10 and learn how to use Linux. My touchpad didn't work at first, but once or twice it worked after booting it up again. What is really strange, is that within an hour of installing Linux Mint, I booted into Windows 10 and it had the exact same problem with the touchpad.

I've tried...
> xinput
> cat /proc/bus/input/devices

And I don't see it listed. I also made sure it was enabled in settings and made sure it wasn't disabled from my keyboard.
