Most laptops do. Go to START > Control Panel > Pointing devices (or something like that) and you should find the setting to turn the panel off, even if you do not have an external mouse. That route was for XP.

How to fix touchpad


What's wrong with the touchpad? Rather than fix it if it is broken just replace it. In fact you can replace the whole palmrest which includes the touchpad that does not cost a lot.

Maybe you turned the touch pad off.

Internal tochpad wont work


You probably have the touchpad turned off. Some models will have a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles it on or off.

Some models you can tap twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad to toggle it on or off.

I've seen some models where the touchpad is toggled by keystrokes. You had to Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit had the icon of a finger pointing at a touchpad.

Click Start/Control Panel and check the Mouse or touchpad drivers to make sure the settings are ok. I would just set everything back to Default.

Maybe you need to reinstall the touchpad drivers if any of the above does not solve it.
