Had the same problem and then discovered that I had inadvertantly shut off the touchpad by keying fn+f7. Keying it again, this time intentionally, I turned it back on.

I never thought that a fuction key would be dedicated to turning the touchpad off and on.

Near your clock, you'll usually find an icon for your touch pad (probably synaptics). Open this & select mouse properties, in there look under Device Settings & try the "Reset Devices" icon.

If that don't work, Click start>control panel (classic view)>mouse.
On the Touchpad tab, make sure the 'tapping' box is checked . Click apply, click ok.

If that doesn't work, click start>run, type devmgmt.msc
and click ok.
Click the plus to expand Mice and Other Pointing Devices.
Right click and uninstall any mouse or touchpad listed.
Reboot.
Let Windows rediscover and reinstall the touchpad drivers.

Good Luck!

The button you are looking for should actually be right on your touchpad. It's in the center at the top of the pad. Just press it and your light should go blue

sure you deleted something, how else can a driver just go byebye.
NO OS stated is this XP
we cant guess what OS is there ever.
so does mouse work, usb plugged in , that be first.
after checking device manager, for touch pad , driver errors
then know a pad this old can be bad.
it can also be set wrong in control panel, click mouse
and set it as you like.

Malfunction of the left button of the touch pad


I had the same problem . The micro switch needs to be replaced . All push button micro switches have a certain amount of "clicks" before they loose ability to make a good contact . Your left click switch has exceeded its life and can no longer make a clean contact without more pressure . Eventually the spring in the switch will fail thus stick permanantly.You will have to take it to an authorized Sony Service center or maybe an office machine service department might have the replacment . I fixed my own with an old mouse microswitch .Hey it's a Cheap laptop and uses cheap parts.
