Older MSI Laptop - Gnome Touchpad Off?

Hello everyone,
I have an older MSI laptop from 2013 and for some reason, upon booting, I can’t use the touch pad which means no mouse unless I plug in an external one and activate Settings> Mouse & Touchpad and switch touch pad to the on position.
Has anyone experienced and solved this?

When time travel becomes reality, future civilizations will discover this post and wonder if there was a fix for this. The answer is YES.

Upon booting, open a terminal (ctrl + F2 and type: gnome-terminal) and enter this string:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad send-events enabled

I have to do this every time the laptop wakes up but the good news is that once the above command is typed in, the terminal history will be able to re-issue it much fastER :wink:
