I have a new Lenovo Gaming Laptop. The touchpad seems to completely stop working 1 day after installing the Steam gaming app.
The weird thing is, if uninstall Steam, I can re-boot as many times as I like that day and the touchpad is still dead. But turn the laptop on the next morning, and the touchpad magically works fine!
So I re-install Steam, no impact on the touchpad that day (even after rebooting), until the next morning when I turn the laptop on again and the touchpad is completely dead again. I tried re-installing drivers, even a full factory reset, nothing worked.
The laptop doesn't move so assuming no loose connection or hardware issue.
I sent it back for Warranty repair and they tell me they've replaced a part, but nothing has changed, I install steam and one day later no touchpad. Uninstall and a day later it is there again.
I don't want to send it back again for repair for them to do nothing again.
Can anyone explain this?
PS: I'm well aware of the function key to toggle on/off the touchpad, this does nothing when the touchpad is not working as explained above.
