Synaptics Touchpad Driver not working [Closed]


So I have had a couple of issues with my touch pad over the last couple of months, where it would stop working. All I had to do was either restart it or, restore the computer to an earlier point.

I was on my laptop, got up to do something then a while later I go back to my laptop and find that the touch pad is not working again. I try my usual options several times but they do not work.
I went into the device manager and looked under 'mice and other pointing devices' and it was not there! it had completely vanished. Only my 'HID-compliant mice' shows up. I looked under installed programs and it is there.

I found the driver online via Toshiba website, installed it, it installed (and restarted my computer and what not) but IT STILL DID'NT WORK....neither does the install show up on my device manager. What can I do? I am a poor student and really can't afford to take it in to get looked at.
