Hello, I recently reinstalled windows 10 from scratch on my 13-a051nr pavilion laptop. Ive ran all the windows updates and installed all drivers properly. My touchpad keeps disabling itself. I can fix it by tapping on the synaptics system tray icon in the bottom right of the desktop and touching disable pointing device and then enable pointing device and it works. It will work all day until the next day where the synaptics tray icon has an X on it. I can re-enable it and it works again. I installed hp support assistant and it only recommended an updated bluetooth driver which I installed. Installed the latest mouse driver off hps support website and still having the same issue. Any ideas? The device doesnt show that its disabled in device manager and it shows enabled in the synaptics settings I just have to disable and turn it back on for it to work temporarily.
