fedora 8 : keyboard and touchpad not working.

I am using lenovo 3000 Y500 notebook.
spec. are as below..

pro : intel celeron M 420 1.6 GHz.
motherboard : 965GM express chipset.
graphics : intel 945GM integrated.
ram : 512 ddr2.
touchpad : ALPS.
Wi-Fi : Broadcom.
hdd : 60GB

As soon as I got the latest release of fedora, fedora 8. I tried installing it.
1. the first problem occurred during installation when Xserver started, the keyboard and touchpad stopped responding.

so I connected my external mouse,keyboard and finish the installation.

2. after installation also both the things didn't respond.

so I went through all the possible solutions which are posted on google. but no use.

My Xorg file didnt have any touchpad entry.

the most strange part is that some times, when I make some substantial changes to the Xorg file (like adding a synaptic driver), both the things (keyboard and touchpad) start working at once. but on the next reboot every thing is coming back to same.

please help me out.. I am stuck with that damn windows and have no clue what to do....

Closed the original in favour of the more suitably located thread in hardware.
Another dupe is in the notebook forum.
