Question about Computers & Internet
I turned my laptop on and the touchpad has stopped working please help
If you have an external mouse you can use that for the time being, in order to solve this problem.
Find out who made your computer, and go to their website (Google helps here).
Usually you can get to a search box on their website, use that to search your laptop's model number (usually located on the bottom side). Search that model, and look for the page that looks most relevant.
There should be a link in the navigation called Download/Drivers (you might have to look around a bit for it, each company's website is a lot different), click that and look for your Operating system, and then select the TouchPad driver. Download and install that application, and then restart.
This will reinstall your touchpad's software that might aid in putting it back into action.

Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.
Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.
Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
hope this helps
