There are two possibilities, the hard drive has issues or windows has corrupted files. If you have a cd installation disc for a fresh install, try to see if the operational system will load, no change! the hardware should be checked in the event it needs to be replaced.
First, try double tapping the light again. You may have just mis-tapped.
Next try restarting the laptop. Certain laptops re-enable the track pad on restart so long as a USB mouse isn't connected.
If that fails, navigate to the Mouse Settings on your PC and re-enable it there. If you have a USB mouse you can use that. If not, you can use the keyboard. Windows Key will launch the Start Menu, arrow keys can highlight options, Enter will click on them, Control+Tab and Control+Shift+Tab will switch tabs (in a window that has tabs).
In Windows XP and 7 (and probably Vista), Mouse Settings is located at Control Panel > Mouse > Settings.

There may be one or more driver files for each device, depending upon what device is installed on your IBM, download them all because only one will work with your device but you won't know which one until you install it and it works.
Then copy the drivers from the Toshiba to a USB memory stick, then remove the memory stick and boot up the IBM R52 and insert the USB memory stick into the R52's USB port. Click on the USB memory device and double click on each of the device drivers. Each driver file will then expand and copy the driver files onto the C drive under a folder called Drivers. Open this folder to view the various drivers and run the Setup file for each driver.

You need to use a computer that has Internet access to download and transfer the files to your computer.
You mentioned "recently my laptop never goes into hibernation" and that is the key to your issues. In order to solve that you'll need to reinstall some signficant part of the OS, using the system disk that came with the PC. When hibernation works again, your mouse and Word problems will be fixed, too. I suggest you start by uninstalling and re-installing (the reinstall will be done automatically by the operating system) your touch pad from the Device Manager (Windows Help tells you how to run Dev. Mgr.).
I also suggest after you set Windows to disable Hibernation as it's got a bug in XP (you can do so from the Power options applet in Control Panel).
