First, make sure that the device settings in Control Panel is set properly & that the touch pad is enabled. You might need to check these setting in the Mouse applet in Control Panel.
Next, if you suspect a corrupt driver, uninstall the driver, reboot the computer then re-install it again.
If this did not fix the problem, you might need to disassemble your laptop & make sure that the ribbon cable connecting the touch pad to the motherboard is not broken or loose. In order to do this, you will need to remove the keyboard & check beneath it where a thin ribbon cable connects the touch pad to the motherboard. Also, use an electric contact cleaner spray to clean both the contacts at the end of the ribbon cable & the connector to which the ribbon cable plugs.
If nothing of these helps, the touch pad might be defective & needs to be replaced. You can usually find a cheap replacement on ebay.com. Search with your laptop's make & model followed by the keywords "touch pad", & always buy from a top seller.
Google for: PF1209 Mac driver (you may add UC-Logic, Genius, Pentagram, Trust)
and find the OLDEST available driver. It should be a .pkg file after extracting.
Install it (it should be the v.1.0 control panel) and then you may install the recent v.1.24.2 driver over it.
It is still a bad written chinese PPC code conflicting with some applications but it works in the meantime.
