Just above my keyboard there is a little black strip with little lights.
they are control buttons and if you tap one of them it turns the touchpad off and on (so it's very easy to do accidentally).
If you look really closely at the strip in good light (or restart the laptop to see them flash on and off) you'll see that one looks like a touchpad crossed out. Just press this to get your touchpad back.
If it doesnt solve the problem, I have noticed that the touchpad can be knocked out by a Window Update of something called ideacom. If you believe this could be the problem please clarify.

If you are saying the right button is down and is not coming back up, then either the plastic lip on the button is jambed against the palmrest, or the actual mechanical part of the mouse button underneath has collapsed and has become non-functional. If the right button clicks but does not do anything like bring up the selection window in windows then that may be a hardware issue related to XP, try this, go to the control panel > system > hardware > device manager> scroll down the Mice and pointing devices. Highlight the touchpad and click on uninstall. Make sure you are connected to the internet when you reboot and have your usb mouse hooked up so it is easy to work around this. When windows reboots it will be forced to reinstall the touchpad because it will recognize it as a new device and want to install drivers for it. If it asks to search windows update for a fresh driver, allow it and let it finish the install. See if that corrects the problem. If it is mechanical in nature, then the palmrest is going to have to be taken off and the touchpad button assembly underneath replaced.
