If Windows service pack 1 - doesnot all recent drivers and will not recognize your touch pad and even keyboard. 
Try to boot on Safemode. 
Just press on F8 when your start your computer - and connect an usb mouse and try to install the touch pad drive manually. 
Then boot on normal mode and install your other drivers.. 
It is recommended to update quickly your os to Service pack 2 or 3 for best performance of your computer.

This will download the driver for your touch pad then you need to run the driver that you downloaded.
Then restart the notebook

Some keys on Sony Vaio VGN FS830w stopped working


Hi:
Most of the time it is a keyboard failure. You can troubleshoot this by plugging in an external keyboard and seeing how that works, but most of the time it is your keyboard. They are not expensive on ebay, maybe $15 + shipping, and not hard to change

Keyboard


Some laptops you can turn off the touch pad. You should have a touch pad setting program - check there to see if it is turned off.

Here is info on removing the keyboard. - WARNING, any self-repairs run the risk of causing more damage.
