In a TOSHIBA LAPTOP - When the Synaptics Touchpad stops working in Windows Vista. You should download the 'Toshiba Value Added Package' and then launch 'Flash Cards' utility. There is a setting to enable the Function Keys, and thus enable the Touchpad! Voila.

Dell Inspiron N5040 touchpad not working while charging


If battery works and ac adapter has problems that means electrolytic capacitors maybe dried up(not supplying the current needed to run the laptop) and has to be cured by using the laptop more often.

A135-4257 touchpad stopped working


Check to see the make of your touchpad (in most cases it would be a synaptics one.) If so, go to http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers and download the corresponding driver according to your operating system.
NOTE
I'm assuming you already went through the basic steps such as checking if there's a dedicated touchpad button which might be turned off, checking if from control panel\mouse the device is not disabled, etc.

Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements stops working


I had this problem on my Dell Inspiron 1318, so I went on to their support centre and through the Chat to a technical advisor tool, they uninstalled and reinstalled the driver which controls the touchpad and now the problem is completely gone. I suggest you contact Acer or the customer service of the company that you bought your laptop from and ask them to do something similar. I didn't even need to send my laptop back, Dell were able to take control of my laptop remotely and it only took about an hour in total. Hopefully your provider will be able to offer a similar service.

You may even be able to do this yourself if you can figure out which touchpad driver you need and look on the Acer/laptop maker website support and look at updates for drivers or downloads or something similar. Personally I found using the company's expertise much easier.

Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements stops working


Hi!
I resently had the same problem on my HP laptop and search Google for possible solutions. No solution works until I tried Windovs Update and then got 5 alternatives - Synaptics PS/2 port TouchPad was one of them. I update and restart and finally solve this problem.

Touch pad not working


That's a sign that the synaptic touch pad needs to be replaced. Eventually they wear out.
