Mouse pointer no longer moves after attempted install of bluetooth
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad. While testing an install of Bluetooth drivers I booted my computer into recovery mode so I could find out if Bluetooth worked before networking was installed. The system reconfigured the graphics to low VGA which disabled the mouse. I rebooted (normal startup) uninstalled the bluetooth drivers, but my mouse still won't work. The mouse pointer appears in the middle of the computer screen, and stays there. Enabling mouse keys support enables me to move the mouse by holding the Function key and pressing numpad characters, but this is only a temporary solution.
