I ve been searching online all day to see what I can do, and all the things that could help said I need to go to Device Manager and click "mice and other pointing devices", then install a new trackpad driver.
My problem is, I can t get to that goddamn thing, because I can t find "mice and other pointing devices" in device manager! So I can t get out. Please help me if you can. I feel so crippled without a mouse.
Update: EDIT: I got my cursor back! I put my computer into a hard restart, and when I checked the mouse settings, the setting was there! I'm happy, but something tells me it might not last...
