Check your user manual. Usually, "Fn" key in combination with one of the functional keys will disable touchpad.

Synaptics ps/2 touchpad not working after i installed new gamer mouse

It is possible that the install of the gamer mouse deactivated the synaptics touchpad. you can click on the icon in the system tray of the touchpad, browse to settings. There you should find a place where it asks if you want the touchpad deactivate when another pointing device is connected. Deactivate the checkbox and you should have your touchpad back on.

I have a Aspire 3680 Series, when I turn it on I can not get the mouse pointer to work it does not even show up on the screen at all.

try to use the touchpad only, if that causes problems, try connecting a ps/2 or usb mouse

under win98se, win2000 or winxp it should work out somehow,
if not, deactivate the touchpad via the device manager, reinstall the appropriate driver for your windows version, reboot.
Still got the problem?
run a hardware detection software like pcwizard 2008( freeware) to find out whether your system recognizes the touch pad at all.
it could also be a hardware malfunction:
if yes, permanently deactivate touchpad and use mouse instead.

Cursor in laptop freezed

there are a few different ways that the touchpad can be deactivated especially if your notebook was pre-loaded with bulky management software.
First of all, most notebooks have a function shortcut for this. On mine it is function + F9. You should be able to see a picture on the keys that will describe this.

Secondly, as you did not specify which operating system you are using (or you did but it is in the hidden at the end of the details!), I will try and give a generic response:

- open control panel
- navigate to "mouse"
- open the "device settings" tab or similar

does this display anything about being deactivated? If it does, just activate it!
