Touchpad settings reset to default after computer shuts down

\015 I have to change my speed and sensitivity to a tolerable speed daily, every time i reboot or shut down settings return to defualt which is really annoying because the settings are basically slow enough for an arthritic, old man with alzheimers, and just happens to be taking valium. reinstalling does not work\015

Answers :

What model laptop do you have?

I know some laptops come with a Power Management utility which controls various profiles. If your computer is setup with a certain profile maybe this is what is causing your computer to change settings everytime you reboot.

You may also be able to change this setting in the BIOS. Check there for any trackpad settings.
