Typically on a Gateway computer there is a series of buttons on the top of the keyboard area, including a touchpad disable button. If that is not lit, press it until it lights up. Hope this helps! If not, check out this forum that might help you. Gateway nv53 touchpad does not works

Charger causing cursor jump


AnswerMake sure you're not touching the touchpad
Because the touchpad often is close to where the palms of your hands and thumbs lay, it's possible that you may be touching the touchpad without realizing it. An easy way of determining this is to see if the cursor moves without touching anything on the keyboard.
Dirty touchpad
Oils, lotion, and other substances from your fingers can cause the touchpad to not work properly. Make sure the touchpad is clean by dampening a cotton cloth with water and rubbing the touchpad surface.
Disconnect other external input devices
It may not be touchpad that's causing your issue. If you have other input devices such as an externalmouse, graphics tablet, keypad, etc., try disconnecting these devices to make sure they're not the cause of your issue.
Disconnect from docking station
If your laptop is only encountering this issue while connected to a docking station, it could be the cause of your issues. For this issue we suggest the below solutions.
Update drivers
Because the drivers control how the touchpad interfaces with the operating system, if the drivers contain issues, any number of problems can occur. Including the cursor moving improperly. Make sure you have the latest drivers from your laptop manufacturer for your touchpad either by visiting their website or contacting their support.
Try a third-party utility
Download and install Touchpad Blocker, a fantastic free program that can be used to help prevent any mistaken touchpad movements.
Bad hardware
If you've completed all the above steps and continue to have issues with your touchpad, it's possible you may have a physical hardware issue either with the touchpad or interface connected to the touchpad.
If your laptop is out of warranty and you do not wish to spend the money it takes to repair the laptop, we suggest disabling the touchpad and using an external USB mouse. Many touchpads can be disabled by pressing a button above or around the touchpad.

the touch pad should work even if you erased the files as it uses generic Human Interface Device drivers. Be careful that you didn't accidental disable the touchpad with the Fn+F2 or other Fn key combination(the key that you should combine with Fn has to has a touchpad icon on it) Another posibility is that you have enabled an option to disable the touchpad upon usb mouse connection. Also it would help if you gave me more details about what and where you erased.

Hi,
You might have disabled the touchpad accidentally. If the touchpad is disabled it is indicated by a yellow LED on upper left corner of the touchpad and when the TouchPad is active, the light is off.
To turn the TouchPad on, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator (the yellow LED).

How do you turn off the touch pad


Some notebook users find the touch pad annoying because at times, while typing fast, their thumbs accidentally brush up against the touchpad. This is frustrating because the mouse cursor jumps to a random location on the screen and can cause undesirable things.

To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Hi my name is amyraffan and my dell inspiron 1545 touch pad/ mouse has stopped working completely it wont move and its froze in the same posiition, please help!


Hi,
there is a button to disable the touchpad near to it. check if you had accidentally clicked on that button which disables your mousepad.

If still problem not solved, then try reinstalling the touchpad device driver alone from the driver cd provided along with your laptop.

I hope this helps you.
Thanks
