[Bug 1045068] Re: Acer Aspire EL-431: Touchpad does not work


Cristian Aravena, as per http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers an
update is available for your BIOS (1.24). If you update to this
following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate , does it change

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

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful.

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Thank you for your understanding.
