Re: Touchpad won't work
Some touch pads can be disabled to prevent the touchpad from responding while typing.
It would still show in properties etc..
Check to see if you have a Fn key and on the Fbutton row a small picture of a mouse. Press Fn + that button to toggle it on or off.
Perhaps there is a physical button or switch (HP laptops are this way).

go to control panel and open mouse option, from here selct the "touchpad" tab,now you should see a line that display the name of the your hardware ( the touchpad name) and below there is a button named "advance configuration" or simply "configuration" or "setting" ecc. Push it.
From the new windows you can control a very large number of options ,not only you can activate scroll in two direction ,but you can also decide the dimension of the touched area interested in the action.
Your Touchpad is disabled, thats why its not working, to enable again, simply press Fn+F7 Key, you will see a small blue icon on F7 key, with a finger pointing, its basically a short cut for enabling/disabling Touchpad,
If it doesnt works, restart your laptop once, and restore the BIOS settings to default, save the settings and reboot laptop, and it should be working again,
Feel free to reply to this post if you require more assistance,
There are three buttons near the right internal laptop speaker. The button directly to the right is the dvd drive eject button. One of the ones to the left which has the satellite icon will enable/disable the wifi receiver. The other one with the hand icon (which is the one you're looking for) will enable/disable the touchpad. If you press it, you should see a message printed in all caps in green saying that the touchpad is either enabled or disabled.
Plug in a USB mouse, and go to Contol Panel>system>device manager and click on the +sign next to pointing devices. Right click touchpad and uninstall the touchpad, then reboot the computer, remove the usb mouse. Windows will pick up the touchpad as new hardware and re-install the drivers for it etc..
