    Hello, this seems to be an unusual problem that's been becoming progressively worse, which seems to suggest it may be a hardware issue. At first, my touch pad stopped working after hours of use. I could make the cursor move, but never the direction I moved my fingers. Now, it happens within several minutes or less using the laptop. If I hold down the left click, I can move the cursor, but it's not controlled, and often goes where it wants. If I put my computer to sleep, it fixes the problem, but only for several minutes. If I don't use my computer for a while after the pad stops working, it sometimes fixes it self. And if I don't use the pad at all after turning on the computer, it will work upon touch, but stop working within 5-15 minutes. It's most definitely not because of F9, but I won't throw out the option that it's because of some other button I could be hitting. I have disabled all touch pad options, one at a time, such as double tap, scroll, and animations, and the problem persists.

    I'll give 1 million dollars to who ever can help fix my problem.
    Just kidding, hah, but seriously, please help.

    Thanks,
    Stephan
