Touchpad not working

Postby rashadkasim » Wed Sep 19, 2012 12:53 pm

Hi all,
I am running on LINUX mint 12 on my laptop DELL XPS L502X. The touch does not work all the time after the start. Just after the boot it works but after sometime it may not work or it can work. But if I am connecting an external mouse, it is working fine. Any pointers for troubleshooting this would be very helpful
