Laptop touchpad not working,function key automatically activated on restarting Ubuntu
Everything was working fine when my laptop got shut down after a battery failure. Now, on restarting, the computer hangs at the login screen. If I close the lid and reopen it, the keyboard seems to work and I can enter password and login, but the touchpad doesn't work at all and all the functions that were to be performed while holding the function key seems to happen automatically (For eg. when I press 0, another key gets typed).
Perhaps the drivers are't getting loaded properly, I don't know. The same story is there no matter how many times I restart. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and the laptop is Dell Vostro 1525
