here what you need to do, disable your keyboard/touchpad because its grounded and soon will not usable anymore... due to this problem, you can use USB keyboard but if you can find the same replacement on it... buy it. Good luck!
There are many possible fixes. To do some forensic work it would be best to know what was going on when the touch pad stopped working. It could very easily be the driver. You can see if that's it in device manager. Locate your touch pad device there and right-click on the device, choose "update driver".
Some laptops, my Toshiba for instance, have an option to configure the touchpad to disable when it senses a USB mouse or keyboard connecting. I have mine set to disable because when I'm typing on the onboard keyboard and I accidently slightly brush the touchpad, it sends the cursor all over the page and usually I lose everything I just typed.
The problem might also be a matter of a bogus setting in the Service Manager. There are a number of services that are related to your touchpad or mouse.
Have you attempted to use an external mouse? - USB - if so does that work?
if it does - Click on START - Control Pannel - Keyboard (& Mouse Respectively) - Click on the hardware Tab - Select the relevant Key Board, Click on Properties - this will give you a device status - if is is not working properly - click Trouble shoot & follow the onscreen instructions. - If is "Working Properly" click on Drivers - check your driver is updated, or roll back.
If you happend to be on a server and the keyboard and/or mouse have stopped responding - you will need to restart (The Server). Ensure that the Keyboard and mouse are on PS2 connections and not USB - the Severs do not like USB Connected Comms Devices. I have found if there are wireless mouse's &/or Keybourd's &/or any USB connected Mouse/Keyboard, they tend to somehow interfere with each other (i.e. the sever with one of the terminals) - only remedy I have ever managed to make work is restart.
