This is my first post in this forum. first of all thanks for being open to newbs and other distro users. also for some odd reason this forum wouldn’t open in India Without a VPN.
Coming to the issue my touchpad is unresponsive random clicks and moves like its gets stuck frequently.
No Idea where to start with this issue I’ll just post my machine name and xinput list ouput.
Model: Hp pavillion gaming 15-ec0066ax (amd 3550h, vega 8 & gtx1650)

|⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer |id=4|[slave pointer (2)]|

For some odd reason there is 3 pointer for my single trackpad? and the other one is my mouse
Welcome to the forum. Thanks for giving EndeavourOS a try. I hope you enjoy your time here.
Unfortunately I know nothing about Touchpads, but I am sure someone will come along to help you out.
Might work, do not forget to update grub:
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Hello xircon, thanks for taking the time to try and help me.
found this while doing some basic forum searching and tried this prior, didn’t help me. also for the record i tried multiple distros and also this other fix didnt help
Did you try any of the kernel parameters in the default grub command line. I would start here and try these two first.
Sorry my english is poor, I tried the above mentioned kernel parametrs didn’t change a thing.
This other dude pretty much has my same machine and i couldn’t understand much of what he and the others were saying
Did you do the kernel parameters properly and then run sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Yes I did could see the osprober run and everything. Its almost a habit now after the windows driver reboot days.
Doesn’t look like an issue with the forum. I will suspect your ISP. Yesterday, I also couldn’t access the forum and main website. Used a different network to access it.
Today its back to normal for me.
I moved your post to General system/Kernel & Hardware category.
Now it seems to work AOK. Jio fiber perks i guess. I guess thanks for moving catagories.
For some odd reason now my xinput list changed and the trackpad wouln’t even work. I undid every change the forum mentioned before and now I get

hey, did your issue get solved? I’m having the same problem in same pavilion gaming . please help me if your touch pad started working now
I did figure it out… It’s mostly that hp writes bad bios. This reddit article helped
