Touchpad cursor disappears and is unresponsive. (Lenovo Yoga 13, Windows 8.1)
This is a problem that happened very recently. My touchpad was working fine. I opened my laptop up to the lock screen, saw that the keyboard had frozen, and restarted the laptop. The cursor disappeared, and I could not use the touchpad to even click it.
The keyboard is working though.
I tried doing a system restore and reinstalling the Synaptics Driver. I also tried looking at the mouse settings and changing them. These did not bring the cursor back. I looked up the shortcut for enabling and disabling the touchpad. These also did not fix
Plugging in a USB mouse instantly caused the cursor to appear. I can use the USB mouse normally. While the mouse is plugged in, though, I still cannot click or move the cursor using the touchpad.
It seems like the computer does not recognize the touchpad at all.
