I have old laptop and cannot activate my touchpad - Cypress.
There are some tutorials on the internet for upgrading older kernels, but I don't have any experience of adding modules to a kernel myself.
However, maybe there are some ready-made solutions or add-on packages to get Cypress working.
The laptop also has a touchscreen, which is probably problematic, as older kernels had a problem with using two touchdevices at the same time.
In short - help is needed
