Try to remove touch pad's module and add it again:

  • Go to another console (e.g. Crtl+Alt+F5)

  • run this commands:

(as root)

modprobe -r psmouse
modprobe psmouse
  • and go back to the X session, press (Ctrl-Alt-F2)

Based on the kernel you use, above commands may not work, because psmouse is a builtin module in current kernel. If you face with

modprobe: FATAL: Module psmouse is builtin.


  • switching to a console and back again
  • sleep you laptop and resuming again
