Turn on touchpad on

Do you mean the mouse buttons below the touchpad do not work but the actual touchpad does? If so I would try removing/reinstalling your touchpad drivers. If that holds no success I would consider replacing the touchpad hardware.

Touch pad quit working - locked

Check the mouse setup in control panel - many can be turned off but you have to use keyboard steps to get to the controls under mouse for the touchpad. You can also download a live CD like Ubuntu, burn to a Cd and boot from that and if the touchpad works in Ubuntu then it is the driver software in the off setting. If the Ubuntu or other OS live CD yields a dead touchpad then the touchpad itself has gone bad, or the connector on the motherboard has loosened, or the controller on the motherboard has failed. Troubleshooting the dead hardware will incur getting replacement hardware to isolate it - get a used touchpad or palmrest with touchpad included from a reseller on ebay or a place like that fits your model. It will involve disassembly to install.

One way to get to the mouse/touchpad settings is to hookup a regular USB mouse then boot so you wont have to use keyboard shortcuts. Check the settings, turn the touchpad on if it's set to off then disconnect the USB mouse and you should be good.

How do i disable the touchpad so i can use a ps2 mouse? Ican't find any instr. i have an inspiron 1521

You don't need to disable the touchpad.  A touchpad and mouse should both work quite happily just use whichever is most comfortable/nearest at the time.

Mouse cursor wont move

most laptops have a way to enable/disable the touchpad for those that use an external mouse or do alot of typing and encouter the overactive touchpad.

hold the "FN" key and press the corospinding function "f button" to enable it.

the function key number will be different depending on your laptop and you should also check the laptop base for a button that may be specifically for this purpose.

Good Luck and Happy Hunting!! :)

Toshiba satellite touchpad & keyboard stopped working

As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.

Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.

Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.

Hpdv9000 laptop mouse wont work

Check if you have installed the latest drivers...
For the touchpad, you should be able to find them on the hp support site
For external mouse, there should be drivers on the manufacturers site or the driver disk that came along with it.

Is it the touchpad that doesn't work, or is it an external mouse?
