There are a few different ways that the touchpad can be deactivated especially if your notebook was pre-loaded with bulky management software.
First of all, most notebooks have a function shortcut for this. On mine it is function + F9. You should be able to see a picture on the keys that will describe this.

Secondly, as you did not specify which operating system you are using (or you did but it is in the hidden at the end of the details!), I will try and give a generic response:

- open control panel
- navigate to "mouse"
- open the "device settings" tab or similar

does this display anything about being deactivated? If it does, just activate it!

Compaq v3000 touch pad not working


You probably forgot to plug the flat cable from the touch pad to the motherboard. If you remove the keyboard you should be able to see if the touch pad flat ribbon is plugged into the motherboard.

Touch pad sony viao vpceb3j1e not working


Hey there. Often times this is a problem caused by accidentally turning it off. Look for a button on your keyboard or near the touch pad to turn the touch pad on/off. If you're using windows 7 and possible below, you won't need drivers to get the touch pad to work normally.

My toshiba satellite A355D touch pad is not working. my husband told me that probably my kid turned it off. if that is the case... how can i turn it on?


Sounds like your touch pad may need to be replaced.You can't really turn off the touch pad.Even if your child managed to uninstall the touch pad it would load back the drivers at next startup.Chances are the touch pad will have to be replaced.Its possible the touch pad may be disconnected from the motherboard but not very likely though.

Touchpad


When the touch pad stops working it's one of three things. 1- A driver glitch, unistall the touch pad drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers automatically. 2- The touch pad connector has worked loose. Take the palm rest with the touch pad off, disconnect the cable, clean the connectors, and reseat the cable firmly. 3- the touch pad has failed and will need to be replaced. The driver glitch is the most common, I believe that it should take care of the problem. Let me know.

Touch pad driver.


Uninstall the driver from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drive automatically. If this doesn't work, check the touch pad connection, they will sometimes work loose ar get a little dirt/corrosion build up. The connection is under the keyboard. At this point, if it's still not working, then it has failed and will need replaced.

Touchpad


This may be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the touch pad drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. The touch pad either works or it doesn't, there's no in between, so if this doesn't work, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the touch pad.
