    TrackPad Driver Randomly Stopped Working


    EightForums,

    I have a MacBook Pro running Windows 8 (via BootCamp) and I was running games on Steam.

    Randomly, the game froze, and my Xbox 360 controller stopped responding. When I exited out to try and fix the problem, the trackpad stopped working completely and the whole thing froze.

    Upon restart, the trackpad simply doesn't work (still doesn't) and I have to use a mouse to control it at all.

    I reinstalled all of the BootCamp drivers, and it still doesn't work.

    Any idea why this could be?

    Thanks,

    David

    Found a fix. Just needed to go to Device Manager, found two errors with the trackpad, selected "Properties" then "Resintall Drivers", selected the drivers from the list (in WindowsSupport folder) and then updated them and everything works again.

    Thanks anyway!
