Determine What's Wrong
laptop'stouch pad doesn't work - mag-glass_10x10.gif touch pad basically provides the functionality of a mouse for a desktop PC, typically with two buttons located just below it acting as the left and right click buttons on a desktop computer. A touch pad may be damaged by excessive use or foreign substances such as water, dirt or food items.

Hit the "Windows" button on the keyboard and then use the right-left keys (or hit 'C') to open "Control Panel." From there, again use the right-left keys to get to "Mouse" and then hit "Return."

Use the right-left keys to toggle between the tabs and open each to investigate whether any boxes had been improperly clicked by accident that cause the touch pad to become unresponsive. But if any of these steps fail to remedy the problem, then the touch pad may need to be repaired or replaced.

Repairing/Replacing TouchpadA touch pad assembly cost $100 or more and that's not including replacement installation. Hiring a specialist to replace a damaged touch pad, including parts and labor, may easily cost $200. Unless the laptop in question is worth well over $1,000 and the touch pad is deemed a necessity, such repairs are rarely worth the cost.

Attempting to replace the touch pad without certain expertise in laptop assembly may be dangerous and/or destructive. Also, getting a replacement part that's not compatible with the laptop may have catastrophic results, including irreversible damage to the laptop.So just attach a mouse to it so you can work easily.Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Microwave Buttons Don't Work
Touchpad and Control Panel


If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.
Touchpad


If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board


If the microwave buttons don't work the user control and display board are most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work and some don't, it is more likely a touch pad problem and the touch pad will need to be replaced.
Main Control Board


If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work the touch pad is likely the problem. If none of the buttons work the problem may be in the main control board.1_24_2013_5_23_47_pm.gif1_24_2013_5_24_54_pm.jpg

Kitchenaid superba kgsc308lssc keypad not working


Hello Ron,
On that touch pad not working do any button at all work?? its not a uncommon thing for the touch pad to quit working,in some case its just a matter of making sure the plug on it has a good connection where it plugs into the control board. If certain button work while others don't its a sign that the control board itself is good and the problem lies within the touch pad and it would need to be replaced. It may possible as to clean the connection of the ribbon cable on the touch pad by using a pencil eraser and try cleaning the ends of the ribbon cable,again if that doesn't work the touch pad would need need to be replaced . On that model the touch pad is integrated onto the control console and the part number for it is 9782418CB just so ya know its pricey (over $200 )
Good luck,GENE

Touch pad does not work. Have tried Fn + F9


Hi,

If it is not locked, reinstall the touchpad driver, but it this still doesn't work, boot to Safe Mode to check if it does. Touch pad still not responding in Safe Mode would mean hardware failure.

Hope this helps.

I recently deleted some old files and temp files to free up disc space and when i rebooted, the scroll on the right side of the mouse pad is not working the buttons are and the double click function is too...


Hi,
The files in temp folder can be safely deleted and have nothing to do with touch pad atleast. Something else might have gone wrong. Just check from the Device Manager or Control Pannel that the drivers for touch pad are installed. If so, check for the scroll option (synaptics touch pad utility) and set it accordingly.
If it doesn't work, you may download and reinstall the touch pad drivers again from the manufacturers support site.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!
