Only easy solution is to use a usb mouse instead :(

Touchpad can be replaced but its part of the actual casing so would be expensive to replace. :(

You may need to replace the touch pad. The part that you removed from the front can be ordered on searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look at the Dispenser parts diagram to find and order the part.

My touch pad works with a mouse,but when I tap my touch pad nothing happen's,thats when I lef click my mouse,it will move the icon,but wont tap on toanything


This has happened to me and it took me hours to figure it out. I hope yours is the same problem...
Make sure you dont have your touch pad set to off. On my ASUS It is F9 on my keyboard. the key shows an icon of the touch pad with a slash (/) through it. If you do not see this on your keyboard try looking in control panel and see if there is a setting in there. Good Luck. Please let me know if this worked.

Kitchenaid superba kgsc308lssc keypad not working


Hello Ron,
On that touch pad not working do any button at all work?? its not a uncommon thing for the touch pad to quit working,in some case its just a matter of making sure the plug on it has a good connection where it plugs into the control board. If certain button work while others don't its a sign that the control board itself is good and the problem lies within the touch pad and it would need to be replaced. It may possible as to clean the connection of the ribbon cable on the touch pad by using a pencil eraser and try cleaning the ends of the ribbon cable,again if that doesn't work the touch pad would need need to be replaced . On that model the touch pad is integrated onto the control console and the part number for it is 9782418CB just so ya know its pricey (over $200 )
Good luck,GENE

Hi,my touch pad is broken,how can I replace it and how much does it costs..thanks


Before you replace the touch pad, the touch pad connect may only need re-seating.
Try removing the keyboard and re-seat and re-connect the keyboard and touch pad connector to the motherboard.
If this does not work then parts are available from these WEB sites.

Touch pad stoped working, keydoard stoped too.


there is a wide wire under the surface of keyboard that connects keyboard (and touch pad) with whole laptop.
i think one of the small cables of that wire is cut.
so take the laptop to a warranty center and explain the problem.

Touch Pad buttons stopped working


I believe you need to order part #1 in the accompanying breakdown. the part # is 74011539 and it is called control panel/switch assembly. this is the piece with the ribbon cable that plugs into the control unit #10 in the diagram. you can price it out at your nearest appliance parts store. hope this helps.

Freezing Touch Pad


Hi,
you have a couple of options here.
1:) check fujitsus website, as sometimes there are drivers specifically designed for touchpads. i.e ALps pointing devices et,c. download if possible and install.
2:) try connecting an external mouse.
3:) take to a computer repair specialist, or if your a competant person. search for downloading the service manual. and remove the touchpad, which usually involves, keyboard-removal. and seperating the touchpad from pickup panel below it.
i,d assume that the pad may have either a loose ribbon cable connection, or has suffered some fluid spillage damage.
