Hello.. You have to put the ribbon cable back on to the mouse pad. there will be a socket under the deck lid where you need to reconnect the ribbon cable. there might be 2 little tabs on each side of the socket if there is, pull the tabs away from the socket carefully, slide the cable in the slot, and then slide the tabs back. that will lock the ribbon cable in. be careful. those sockets can get damaged easily. good luck !

Mouse pad stopped working

Try to check in the device manager if you lost the driver of the pad, if not , you have to open the laptop and plug back the small cable connected to that pad, could be loose .

Lenovo n500 laptop ... mouse pad not working

The mouse pad maybe faulty or the ribbon cable from the mouse pad to the motherboard may not be properly connected. Reseat this cable.
You can connect an USB optical mouse to the laptop. I prefer you use a USB mouse all the time over the mouse pad.
