Re: touchpad and keypad problem
If it does'nt work at all, use a usb mouse to do this proceedure.
Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc, remove usb mouse.
Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel" in the right panel. Click "Accessibility Options." Clear the boxes next to "Use Sticky Keys," "Use FilterKeys" and "Use ToggleKeys." Click "OK" to unlock the keyboard, including the keypad. Unlock Touchpad Click "Start," then "Control Panel." Click "hardware and Sound," then "Mouse." Click the "Touchpad" tab. Click "Default" under the "Touchpad" tab to reset the touchpad to its original settings.
Remember, the default restore disc that comes with the laptop has all the drivers for your notebook. You installed xp now, and most probably the drivers for your wireless is not installed. My advive will be to download the drivers for xp for your wireless. Then it should work fine.
May be your touchpad had lost its contact with the motherboard, due to broken wires or lose cable.
If your laptop is out of warranty open it, do this:
Find out the flat cable that connects your touchpad and motherboard. Make sure it is connected preoperly, if not do it well. And start your machine.
If connection is OK and still not working you should replace the cable or replace the entire touchpad unit.
Note: do remember to check your BIOS for disabled touchpad device. If so enable it.
