Go to control panel > device manager > mouce and other pointing devices and see if the touchpad is listed there. If it is, there just may be a driver issue here. Right click on the device and uninstall it. Reboot the laptop and let windows re-install the device, it may ask to search for a driver at windows update, allow it and get a fresh driver. This should also work for the keyboard. If it does not, there may be a mechanical reason for the non-function like a bad cable etc.

The touchpad stoppped working on my HP MIni

By either use of the keyboard, or using a USB mouse temporarily, go to control panel and check the properties of the touchpad, it may have been turned off. Turn it on and it should work even with the US mouse plugged in. If it doesnt show then you need to go to under downloads and drivers and download the current touchpad driver and install it then try.

My HP G60 touchpad will not turn off. When I press the button above it the orange light comes on but the touchpad stays on. It is also hypersensitive. Is there an adjustment for that?

To adjust the sensitivity go to your mouse settings in the control panel.

Start>Control Panel>Mouse

There should be a tab named "Tapping" or something similar that has a button labeled "touch sensitivity". That is where you can change settings for a hypersensitive pad.

As for the touchpad that wont turn off...
It sounds like you have either a faulty driver or an incorrect version.
I suggest you go to HP's site and locate the touchpad driver for your laptop model and install/update the one you are currently using.

Here is a link to HP's driver page for HP G60 HERE. But you will need to know the full model number which is located on the bottom of your notebook. (a little sticker that says "service tag")

I hope this helps.

I have an HP G60 and my mouse touchpad is locked, like the mouse on the screen wont move at all.

There is a led light for the touchpad just above the touchpad. If it is amber in colour tap the button ju8st next to the light. you will see that the light will change in blue. if it has changed then it has unlocked and the touchpad will work fine.

Keyboard and touch pad will not work

The HP50 and HP60 laptops both have a lock button I just discovered by tripping over it today. Couldn't find a description of it in the printed or onboard manuals. This button is in addition to the overall computer lock function key (f6) that is well described. This keyboard/touchpad (k/t) lock button is obvious when pointed out, but less so when those items are already locked out by casual hand motion. The button is located just above the touchpad and is embedded in the border trim of the keypad. It toggles access to your k/t. It has a little indicator light so one doesn't miss it, but it is pretty low-key, if you forgive the pun. Designers can be a little too cool sometimes!

Toshiba satellite touchpad & keyboard stopped working

As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.

Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.

Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.
