My mouse track pad often freezing & not working but it works when I reboot .Give me a solution please

It works after a reboot but then at some point I assume it breaks again. Do you see any pattern with this? Is it happening after you sleep then wake the computer or maybe plug and/or unplug certain devices?

Take note of the time this happens next time, then check the journal logs around that time.
Instead of rebooting, try switching to a tty and then back to the graphical session.

No only after booting up for the first time in the day & not all time at random times only then only rebooting can solve the issue after rebooting it works fine no problem but its so annoying for me as I use the track-pad for all the time

Bro I didn’t get u can u be more specific as I am new to garuda what is journal & tty please guide

Really sorry, but this is not supposed to be a linux teaching forum. You will need some self learning.
For the journal check this:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Systemd/Journal#Filtering_output
To switch to TTY and back:
Ctrl + Alt+F4 to go to a TTY (other Fx can be used as well)
Ctrl + Alt+F1 back to the graphical session (the proper number may vary)

OK today the issue happened again I switched to tty & back to normal nothing happened also checked journal logs but nothing found suspicious but instead I found this some written in yellow & some in red also my laptop is running hot (sometimes only) even when doing light works & also having higher fan noise

Check BIOS, the problem is not Garuda Linux related.

Will updating BIOS solve the issue ?
