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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hello, It's a driver related issue or the touchpad is locked. Unlock it. Each computer has it's own way on how to unlock the touchpad. Please provide me with the model of your computer so that I can provide you with the correct steps. You can also scan your computer with RadarSync so that you will know if the drivers are out-of-date especially the touchpad driver. Your touchpad stops working if the driver is out-of-date so you might want to check RadarSync.
Check the keyboard it's possible the touchpad has been deactivated. You can toggle fn keys (fn + f2) or any fn key that has touchpad drawn on it. If this doesn't help. Am afraid the touch pad connector has to be checked & replaced in computer repair shop
eMachines E725 has a built in switch to toggle the touchpad on or off
by the touch of a button. Look at the button to the left of the main
power switch. You'll notice the icon looks like a hand touching a
rectangle - or touchpad. if this button is lit up, the touchpad is
turned off. simply press the button to toggle the touchpad back on. The
light on the button should now be off.
It's that simple.
Hi there. The touchpad drivers could be corrupt, try reinstalling the touchpad drivers again. Go here to Toshiba Support fill in the details of your model laptop and download the synaptics touchpad driver and reinstall it, see if that helps.
Just above my keyboard there is a little black strip with little lights. they are control buttons and if you tap one of them it turns the touchpad off and on (so it's very easy to do accidentally).
If you look really closely at the strip in good light (or restart the laptop to see them flash on and off) you'll see that one looks like a touchpad crossed out. Just press this to get your touchpad back.
If it doesnt solve the problem, I have noticed that the touchpad can be knocked out by a Window Update of something called ideacom. If you believe this could be the problem please clarify.
