Either your driver for touch pad is missing or flex cable of your touch pad is disconnected. Check in Device Manager if your driver for touch pad is there, if that part is fine then you have to open your touch pad and reconnect the flex cable.
On all Panasonic Toughbook models, if the Touchpad driver is
properly installed then you can disable the "TAPPING" feature.
Check under device manager. If the driver says PS2 Mouse,
then you need to locate your touchpad driver. Otherwise
locate the advanced setting under MOUSE under the control
panel and find "TAPPING" and un-check to disable feature.

I connect to an unpainted surface, of an empty open desktop computer case. (I don't feel an Anti-Static Mat is warranted, and can explain)
You can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it. Or perhaps a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)
You can't discharge Static by touching the metal frame, of the laptop. Doesn't work that way. (ZZZZZzzzzap! Goodbye computer )
C) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of. SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws! Advise do NOT mix them up.
D) Take photos, or use a video cam; if available. Use good lighting. Make notes, and/or drawings if you wish.
It's nice to have a Personal record, as well as a Service Manual, and pictorial information. It's nicer to have YOUR method YOU used, along with the above.

Put everything back just LIKE it came out. Don't pinch any cables.
The CF-30 is equipped with a resistive touchpad. It is designed to be more rugged and last longer than a capacitive touchpad. Applying pressure and keeping your finger on the pad longer while you move your pointer will help with speed. Pointer speed can also be adjusted under mouse properties in the Control Panel.
Find the complete model number on the bottom of your laptop 'CF-30XXXXXXX' and locate the correct driver by following the link below. Once you've downloaded the correct driver, extract the file to a new folder and run the Ftsetup file. (accept all default settings). You may need to restart the Toughbook.
try using the usb mouse then go into control panel>system>hardware>device manager. Click on the +sign next to touch pad or pointing devices and right click on touchpad, then click on uninstall. Reboot the computer, unplug the usb mouse and the touchpad should be picked up as new hardware and be re-installed.
