Re: Touch pad not working

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. :(

Compaq v3000 touch pad not working

You probably forgot to plug the flat cable from the touch pad to the motherboard. If you remove the keyboard you should be able to see if the touch pad flat ribbon is plugged into the motherboard.

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.

Touch pad sony viao vpceb3j1e not working

Hey there. Often times this is a problem caused by accidentally turning it off. Look for a button on your keyboard or near the touch pad to turn the touch pad on/off. If you're using windows 7 and possible below, you won't need drivers to get the touch pad to work normally.

Spilled water on my keyboard, touch pad stopped working. Dried it ff and left it for an hour. Unfortunately curser/ Touch pad still not working and can no longer connect to the iternet, seems like the...

When this happens, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

there is a wide wire under the surface of keyboard that connects keyboard (and touch pad) with whole laptop.

Touch Pad on my laptop is not working

Follow the guide below to tear the laptop down, you are extremely fortunate that the device is even working. Electronic sircuits and water have never been a good match, and your keyboard and touchpad are essentially just large electronic circuits. There is probably some water still somewhere under the keyboard and it is probably in contact with the tochpad cable or socket. When you have the keyboard off, use a hair dryer on warm and completely dry out all components and make sure all the small flat cables are tight in their sockets.

I've just replaced the hard drive of my laptop compac nx9010. There was an optical tap on the old drive which I took it off and stuck on the new but my touch pad mouse is not working. Can you please advice...

Go to control panel, and to Device manager under system, make sure you install the driver for touch pad, if not do that( download it from the website from the manfacture of your laptop) , if you did make sure that the connecter cable is pluged for the touch pad, you have to open your laptop, and connect small cable to the touch panel.

Thanks for using Fixya

From the Dell D620 Users Manual:

You can use the Mouse Properties window to disable the touch pad and track stick or adjust their settings.
  1. Open the Control Panel and click Mouse.
  2. In the Mouse Properties window:

    • Click the Device Select tab to disable the touch pad and track stick.
    • Click the Pointer tab to adjust touch pad and track stick settings.
  3. Click OK to save the settings and close the window.
The Mouse Properties utility is found like this:

Start Button>Control Panel>Printers and Other Hardware>Mouse

or in the Classic View

Start Button->Control Panel-> Mouse

Freezing Touch Pad

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.
