Try switching to tty Ctrl+Alt+F1 and back with Ctrl+Alt+F7.

  • So after 3 days, this solution no longer works. I now have to use a usb mouse, which is not an ideal situation. this time, the cursor of the mouse doesn't even show up at all. i've tried restarting several times, tried the ctrl/alt/f1 and nothing seems to work Jul 5, 2016 at 13:01

try this:

sudo modprobe -r psmouse
sudo modprobe psmouse
