If it's the touch pad, it may be locked.

Or you may need to find the drivers for it.

If it's locked, to unlock it, it should have a button above the touch pad in the center that has an LED above it. If it doesn't contain a button, your computer should contain a set of FN keys, the FN keys work in conjunction with your number keys. There should be a number key with an icon of something that looks like the touch pad. hold fn + that and it should unlock.

If these aren't the case your pad could be un-lactched from the ribbon, in that case you'll need to tighten it.

If that's not the case, it may be broken.

How to Fix Touchpad on a Laptop


<p><span>The touchpad of your laptop is a most important and frequently used input device. If your touchpad stops functioning, it may be difficult for you to use your laptop. Touchpad normally faces following issues. <br /><br /><b>Laptop Problems and Their Solutions</b><br /><br /><b>Problems with the driver</b><br /><br />Computer hardware communicates with your computer through real time software called driver. Drivers control computer hardware. It is possible that virus or human activity may damage the driver. You can check your driver's status through computer's device manager. You'll see a yellow color indication under "Mouse and other pointing devices" heading. You can download new driver form your laptop's manufacturer website. <br /><br /><b>Problems with connection</b><br /><br />Touchpad's connection with motherboard is delicate. It can be broken due to heating and other inner problems. So, if there is no problem with the driver, then the connection of the touchpad to the motherboard may have broken. <br /><br /><b>Misuse</b><br /><br />Touchpad of the laptop is the most delicate input device. Some people tap on it too hard or use a shrill tool as an alternative of a finger. This can damage the pad. <br /><br /><b>Fn Keys</b><br /><br />Touchpad driver is slightly different from the other devices that need drivers to function properly. It came with an operating system that you don't need to re-install it. Laptop keyboard comes with many functions than the common keyboard. It has Fn keys which are called function keys. Sometimes, your laptop's touchpad stops working because you accidentally hit some one of the Fn keys. You can follow these instructions to make your laptop touchpad working again. <br /><br />1- Search for Fn key on your laptop keyboard. It is commonly located next to the Ctrl key. <br />2- Now search for F1 to F12 keys on the laptop keyboard. These keys control sound, brightness of the screen, wifi etc. They are located on top of the keyboard. Look for the key which has icon on it that looks similar to the touchpad. <br />3- Let's take an example of Toshiba laptop. It uses F10 key to enable or disable touch-pad. Hold down Fn key along with F10 key to enable the laptop touch-pad. <br /><br /><b>Cleaning the laptop touch-pad</b><br /><br />It is a good practice to clean your laptop touchpad. To clean it, take a cloth dampened with sprit. Wipe your touchpad off with that cloth. <br />Laptop touchpad work best in moderate temperature and gasping environment. Moisture, excessive heat, can damage it. Try using your laptop with tidy hands. Sweaty and dirty hands can cause problems. <br /><br /></span><span><span> </span></span><br /><span><br /> </span>

Mouse pad stopped working


If you are referring to the "touch pad" on Laptop/notebook, if the touchpad on your laptop is not working and is unresponsive, it's not broken, you or someone else has accidently deactivated it with the function key.

Then you can try this,
Most laptops (if not all) come with a function key. The function key is labelled "Fn" and usually stands out from the rest - either the "Fn" is in a different color or the key as a whole. The function key works in conjunction with other keys on the keyboard especially the ones in the top row marked "F1" to "F12". The combination of function key with these keys lets you perform various tasks quickly such as shutting the screen, putting the computer in sleep mode, switching the wireless connection on and off etc.

By keeping the function key pressed and then hitting one of the keys ("F1" to "F12"), activates a task. You can activate and deactivate the touchpad by using the function key with the "F8" key.

Hope it helps.

Screen broken


From main screen:

Either 'a':
Press 'down' on your directional pad to open up the phonebook (default setting)

OR

Press the menu key and scroll down to the phonebook entry (I'm not sure if you remember where yours is, as I changed my menu around. My phonebook listing is the first one. Dunno if this helps at all)

Then, once you are viewing your contacts:

Press the menu key.

Press 'down' on the directional pad eleven (11) times to highlight 'copy'.

Press the center of the directional pad in to select the highlighted menu item.

Press down on the directional pad once to highlight the 'all to SIM' option.

Press the center of the directional pad in to select the highlighted menu item.

Press the center of the directional pad in to select the highlighted menu item (MERGE)

OR

Press down on the directional pad once to highlight the 'OVERWRITE' option, and then press the center of the directional pad in to select the highlighted menu item.

Depending on how many contacts you have, this will take about 30 seconds per 100 contacts.
