Hi there, I'm hoping that I can get some help - in very simple terms. I am a little confused and intimidated by all things "computer". I just received the IdeaPad flex 15 with windows 8 for Christmas. I was slowly getting things set up when my cursor froze... for like 20 minutes, I couldn't be patient any longer so I tapped it with my finger, hoping to get it to reset. It did not, it disappeared and somehow disabled my touch pad. I have tried the FN keys like suggested in other posts and google searches, I have restarted the computer countless times... When I look under the control panel - mouse - hardware - nothing is listed?? I don't want to do anything else to ruin my new computer but I want to get this fixed so I can have a fully functioning laptop, not just a touch screen.
Thanks in advance for any help or direction.

Continue to let the automatic updates download, install and then reboot.
It takes a LONG time.
I had an issue with the touchpad but it worked after a few more updates.
