Go to control panel, mouse properties and there will be a place for you to turn it on.

If this dont work look under device manager and check to see if it is disabled or a yellow question mark there, where you need a driver for it.

Synaptic touchpad doesnt work may laptop is Acer 3810T

Well usually with the synaptic touchpad is that they come with there system tray icon to tell us the status...
Basically if in the right hand corner of most OS and depending on your settings you will see the notification icons... In this section you should see the Synaptic Icon, usually a red square with a with Strike going through kinda with a curve in it...
IF you see it then, you mouse should be fine and it could become a hardware issue, if it is not there...
Go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager... Go to "Mice and other pointing device" Should now see the synaptic. Right Click on it uninstall, DO NOT check box that says DELETE the driver.. then restart your system after successful uninstall and all should be working...
IF not go back to the device manager with above steps... then once there, Right Click on "mice and other pointing device" then Scan for hardware changes and it should use windows update get it for you....

My synaptic pointing device stop working ..I think

Since you do not specify the model number for your HP laptop one cannot be too specific. On my Toshiba laptop activation and deactivation of the touch pad is enacted by pressing the Fn-F9 sequence.

The actual Function key to press after the Fn key might have the picture of a touch pad on it. Examine tour laptop keyboard.

The scroll on the mouse pad has stopped working. when i go into the control pannel, and then mouse properties it says everything is fine. untill i try and look at the divice settings. this will then crash...

You would need to uninstall the Synaptics driver, then reinstall them. To uninstall, you can go to the Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. To reinstall, you will need to find the install files, hopefully they are on your system. It may also be possible to download them from the HP site. If you are unable to find them, here is a link for the generic Synaptic drivers:
