There should be a Fn key that you will have to press along with that button in order to activate or deactivate the pad.....It should be to the left of the space bar. hold it and press the button that has the rectangular symbol with it. If that doesn't work then i will need to know what make and model laptop you have and what version of windows is installed. You can check all this by right clicking the "My Computer" icon and selecting "properties" at the bottom of the drop menu.

Touch pad not working


Hello,
It's a driver related issue or the touchpad is locked. Unlock it.
Each computer has it's own way on how to unlock the touchpad. Please provide me with the model of your computer so that I can provide you with the correct steps.
You can also scan your computer with RadarSync so that you will know if the drivers are out-of-date especially the touchpad driver. Your touchpad stops working if the driver is out-of-date so you might want to check RadarSync.

My mouse touchpad stopped working all of a sudden. I have also enabled the synaptics touch pad in device settings in the control panel. after doing all these also my touch pad is not working.


Check the keyboard it's possible the touchpad has been deactivated. You can toggle fn keys (fn + f2) or any fn key that has touchpad drawn on it. If this doesn't help. Am afraid the touch pad connector has to be checked & replaced in computer repair shop

My Friend bought a Dell insparian 1545 laptop and one day a cup of tea feel down on touch pad integrated mouse. Touchpad mouse stopped working after that. She had bought the laptop on 10th December, 2009....


She will have to take it to a repair shop and have the touchpad replaced. This is going to cost her about $200, since the warranty has expired a few days ago. Unless of course she had got extra warranty, in that case it will be free.

Emachines e725 Touchpad Not Working


The eMachines E725 has a built in switch to toggle the touchpad on or off by the touch of a button. Look at the button to the left of the main power switch. You'll notice the icon looks like a hand touching a rectangle - or touchpad. if this button is lit up, the touchpad is turned off. simply press the button to toggle the touchpad back on. The light on the button should now be off.
It's that simple.

Mouse touch pad problem Lenovo Y410 model notebook


Just above my keyboard there is a little black strip with little lights.
they are control buttons and if you tap one of them it turns the touchpad off and on (so it's very easy to do accidentally).

 If you look really closely at the strip in good light (or restart the laptop to see them flash on and off) you'll see that one looks like a touchpad crossed out. Just press this to get your touchpad back.

If it doesnt solve the problem, I have noticed that the touchpad can be knocked out by a Window Update of something called ideacom. If you believe this could be the problem please clarify.
