[Bug 1088115] Re: Vaio Touchpad not detected.


Nicholas, as per
http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/VPCEB1E0E_WI/updates an update
is available for your BIOS (R0300Y8). If you update to this, does it
change anything?

If not, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Thank you for your understanding.
