So one day, all of the sudden my laptop's touchpad started acting its own life, it didn't respond my touches as it should've, and this continued few times I used my laptop. Today when I opened the laptop again, the touchpad wasn't working at all.
Driver issues? (This has nothing to do with win10, as I downloaded it like half a year ago and this problem started just today)
