Hi
One of the toggle switches using the FN key turns the touchpad on and off.
<Fn> + <F7> Touchpad toggle. Turns the built-in touchpad on
and off.
If you go here :-

and selecting your model from the selections offered ie "Notebook" then "Aspire" then "Aspire E1-571" you can find all the documentation, drivers, applications, BIOS etc for your machine.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

How to solve my hp6735b toche pad not working


Assuming the touchpad is not broken, some of these options may help.

Most people whose touchpad doesn't work is simply because they disabled it by accident and don't know how to reenable it. Look along the top of the keyboard on the function keys (F1, F2, F3, etc) for a symbol that looks like a touchpad and press it. If that doesn't work, hold down the Fn button and press it.

Some HP laptops (like mine) actually has a little dip in the pad with a little light that displays the touchpad is disabled. Double tapping in that little "dip" will reenable the touchpad.

Hi my hp g60 laptop has been fixed with the new windows 7 when it got broken and now the touchpad scroll up/down don't work is there any way of fixing it?


I'm not sure what you mean by "broken". If Physically damaged, then I would be questioning the person who repaired it, as the touchpad issue scrolling points to hardware rather than software.

You could, in the meantime, visit the HP site and download the touchpad drivers for Windows 7 for this model (I cannot give you a direct link as there are 15 variants of your laptop on there)

Touchpad not funjctioning on Toshiba Satellite L40/45 laptop


You might have inadvertedly disabled the touchpad.

1. Press Fn + F9 to enable the touchpad.
This key combination acts as a switch, enabling or disabling the touchpad: press once to enable (if it is disabled), then press again to disable.

2. If the touchpad still doesn't respond, check the settings in the mouse control utility.
Click on the touchpad icon on the right side of the task bar if you see one or click Start button/Settings/Control Panel, select the Mouse icon and Press Enter.
Change the settings if necessary.
