Touch Pad Problems

My Father purchased me a refurbished Gateway cx 2610 notebook. I am currently in Iraq and its great for keeping in touch ect. This morning I woke and the touchpad is nonresponsive. I attempted to restore the system to an earlier date through system tools to a date I knew it worked but no progress. I'm using an external mouse. Any help out there? Thanks SSG William Ware

    All you need to do to get your touchscreen pad working again is go to the F6 key at the top and it turns on and off your pad! May accidentally hit it!

Check for new drivers for the touch pad out on Gateway's website and maybe check in BIOS to be sure that when you plug in an external mouse it doesn't disable the touch pad. Some laptops only let you do one or the other. Also if there is any software for the touchpad aside from drivers try reinstalling that also.
