I don't know why my touchpad is not working?


1.See if you have button around touchpad that enables/disables touchpad by pressing it .
2 Hold Fn-key (bottom left corner on your keyboard) and press "mouse pad" icon on one of your Function keys ( F8 in my case but yours could be any of those Fn buttons in upper row of your keyboard) .

Laptop touchpad not working


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


hope this helps

Touchpad not workin at all


u can turn on or turn off the touchpad functionality of ur notebook..what must have happened is u would have turned off the touchpad of ur notebook by mistake & now u dont know how to turn it on....The key to turn on the touchpad can be different on different notebooks...so it would have been easier for me to provide u a resolution if u would have also mentioned the model of ur notebook... Generally there is a small button just beside the touchpad which is used to turn or off the tochpad, if the small button is amber in color then the touchpad is turned off & if its blue in color then touchpad is on...otherwise sometimes there is no button beside the touchpad & then there is a key combination to turn on or off the touchpad & it is Fn+F7....
try this out, it might work for u, if it works then let me know by rating this solution...

Touch pad doesn't work AT ALL!!!!


Hello there, Kasie!

Hopefully I can help. On laptops, there will *usually* be a "function button" one can press to disable the touchpad in the even that one wishes to use an actual mouse instead of the touchpad. -- This would be in the interest of not accidentally triggering clicks, or mouse movement when typing, etc.

Without knowing the make and model of your laptop, I can't tell you the precise button to press to re-activate your touchpad. On most laptops, you'll need to hold down the "Fn" key (usually at the bottom left or right of the keyboard) and then find the function key (top row of keys... F1, F2, F3, F4 and so-forth)... Look at your function key row. See if there is perhaps a key with a little "drawing on it" that looks like a touchpad.. like a horizontal rectangle with 2 smaller squares under the rectangle, representing the rectangular shape of the touchpad and the two "mouse buttons" beneath it... if you find something like this, it will likely be the one you'll need to press.

However, on some laptops, the button will be just above your touchpad... you'll be able to press it, and some sort of indicator light will either light up in red to let you know it's been deactivated, or white / green to let you know that it's currently activated.

One of my laptops which is an HP has the button at the top left corner of my touchpad.. I have to "double-tap" it to deactivate / reactivate the touchpad; while my Toshiba laptop has a button directly above the touchpad which I only have to press once. -- Both laptops have an indicator light as well. The HP's "double-tap button" will turn red / dark orange to let me know that I've deactivated it... With the Toshiba laptop, there is a light just below the touchpad area which is always lit up as a "bright white light bar" when active and simply not lit up when deactivated.

I wish you the best of luck with this, and hope I've helped you!
