did you download the drivers from the laptops manufacturers website.
I removed some bloatware from an ASUS ux305ca with "Decrap my computer". Later I noticed the touchpad functionality was reduced (I was no longer able to scroll using two fingers etc.) I uninstalled the ASUS touchpad driver, which immediately removed the mouse cursor and the touchpad went dead. I might also add that connecting a corded USB mouse does not work. The mouse is properly installed, but the mouse cursor remains hidden.
I don't think the touchpad is clinically dead, as it works very well when i boot the laptop in Linux.
I have tried to re-install Smart Gesture and the ATK package. I even did a clean reset of Windows 10, this brought the bloatware back, but the touchpad remains dead.
Windows ver. 10.0.10586 Build 10586
Processor: Intel Core m3-6Y30
Touchpad driver version: 220.127.116.11 (ASUS)
Any further help would be greatly appreciated!
