Mouse pad is not working but usb mouse is!

My mousepad was working just fine, I left the room and when I came back the curser didn't respond to the touch pad nor to right or left click. I plugged in a usb mouse and it's working just fine. Also the keyboard is working fine and their are no buttons stuck.

    THX for solution! (touch FN + F7 at same time). Had same problem - mouse stopped working. Thought it was because I'd used a usb mouse. Turns out, I was simultaneously hooking up a projector and I must have touched the wrong key!

Connects and clicks just doesnt move the curser

I presume you can see the motion sensing red LED or laser beam shining under the mouse. If not, that has gone bad, and it would probably be more economical to replace the mouse than to attempt a repair.

If the light is on under the mouse, try cleaning the lenses (both LED and photoreceptor) with a cotton swab dampened with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Don't scrub, just wipe the optics gently until clean.

Hi how to switch on mouse pad?

there's a button just above the mousepad but usually the problem isn't the button it's the driver or the mousepad is broken. use a usb mouse (they're really cheap) and run windows update until there's nothing left to update. if that doesn't work it's either a loose connection or a faulty touchpad. they aren't the most difficult laptops to repair but if yu're a novide i'd pay someone to do it

Acer 4720z mousepad not working

You may have a function key that can enable/disable it or a setting in the control panel > mouse > pointing devices. Or possibly a BIOS setting to enable/disable.

Asus mousepad stopped working after windows vista update

1.) Try reloading the touch pad drivers, should be on the CD that came with it or check the Asus website for new ones.
2.) Have you accidently disabled it? There is a Fn key combination to do this. Try Fn+F9. Also, there is an option to automatically disable the mouse pad when a USB mouse is plugged in. And of course, you can disable it from the Device Manager.
3.) Try going into :: Control Panel, find "Mouse", select the "Device Settings" tab, select the touchpad and click the "Settings" button). Check the settings in the "Tapping" section.

Sony vaio touch pad not working.

My Vaio touchpad started behaving strange. I could move the curser, but no response on left or right click or double tap. Also found that in any search field or user name fields, the computer would just type endless 9's. My wireless mouse could operate the left and right click buttons, but not move the curser. A suggestion to get the mousepad operating again was to touch any key on the keyboard. This allowed it to function again. Final solution was to remove the battery, then hold down the start key for about a minute, reinsert the battery and start it up. It seems to have resolved the problem. I have a 3 month only laptop with Windows 7 already installed. Hope this helps.

Microsoft Wireless Optical MOuse

I've noted that certain mousepads do cause problems- it seems to be with the graphics on the pad- reflective/light/dark areas on the pad cause the different movement patterns. I'd guess a pad with a dull non-reflective & uniform color might be best.
