My synaptics pointing device has disappeared from my computer. The mouse would appear on the screen but with no movement. Had to enable a usb mouse.
I've had the mouse disabled before, I would go into Device manager to re-enable. Now it isn't even showing up in Device Manager. There wasn't an option for 'mouse or pointing device' until I installed the usb mouse.
I recently installed new software (2 weeks ago) with no problems, until now. I am using a HP Pavilion g w/ Windows 7.
I've tried reinstalling the software, but the computer just won't recognize the device.
