depending on your laptop this will vary
If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.
To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.
Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.
Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.
The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option.
Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK
Right-click on a blank spot on your desktop. Scroll down, select "Personalize" and then choose "Mouse Pointer."
Click the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight your TouchPad in the "Devices" section. Hit the "Enable" button.
Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button.
Click the "Start" button in the lower-left corner of your computer.
Type "mouse" in the field above the button. Click "Mouse" in the list of items that appear.
Click the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight the touchpad item in the "Devices" list.
Click the "Enable" button. Click the "Apply" button and then the "OK" button.
hope this helps

Some laptops don't have dedicated buttons but you can use Function keys (like Fn + F5 on Dell computers) to toggle the state of your touch pad. In the case of HP laptops, you can hold the top-left corner of the touchpad for few seconds and it will disable the touch pad - repeat this to re-activate it.
New laptop computers either have a physical on/off button to easily disable the touch pad or there's an icon in the system tray that lets you manage the various settings of the touchpad. If you don't have that icon, you can go to Control Panel -> Mouse Properties -> Touch Pad to enable or disable the touchpad.
The touch pad can also be disabled through the device manager. Type devmgmt.msc in the Windows Run box to start the device manager, expand "Mice and other Pointing devices", right-click and disable the driver entry that says Touch pad or likewise.
Hope this information will help.
Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...
