Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
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.
Let Windows rediscover and reinstall the touchpad drivers.
