Touchpad died on Acer Aspire 5315 (non-wc version)

i bought this new laptop not 2 weeks ago, i was playing FOF on a projector with an external keyboard (FUN), once i got out of FOF my touchpad didnt want to work, i didnt think anything of it as the same happens with the mouse on my PC, but when i rebooted, the problem was still there, this doesnt happen on the PC, so im wondering if i've somehow stuffed my touchpad completely

i tried booting from an ubuntu live cd (touchpad used to work in the live cd) but it didnt work then either. i really cant be without this laptop, any suggestions?

ok, this was stupid, when i hooked up the projector, i meant to press Fn+F6 to clone the screen, but accidentally pressed Fn+F7 instead and disabled the touchpad *doh*
