This should be an easy fix...after many months of trying to disable touchpads on machines that did not have the one button disable feature either in the control panel or on the touchpad itself I discovered it was one of the function keys.
Press function (FN) and the "F7" key...press again to re-enable. Good luck!
There is probably some type of touchpad disable button on your laptop. You didn't mention the make or model of the laptop, but HP's for example, have a small button above the touchpad with a blue light. If the light is off, the touchpad is disabled.
Look around on the laptop and there is probably just a button that needs to be pressed to enable the touchpad
