Most likely you have in inadvertently deactivated the touch pad,
do you have an external mouse?
if so does it work
y/n
if yes (you have rebooted your pc at this point, right? if not do so now)
assuming the above look at your row of "F" keys (above the numbers, F1, F2 ect)
there is probably one that has a picture of something like a finger touching a box with a line through it
pick the one that looks the most like this and press it and the key to the left of the space bar that says FN (or some other variation of function on it) at the same time
does this solve the problem
if not try other keys in the F row along with the FN key
if not
repost

just select eh operation system and download the touch pad driver..
or go to control panel ..open the touch pad icon ..and in there select default settings ..or enable the cursor again ..if it is disabled..
if this is not working ..try reinstall it like I said ..It always starts a clean installation from the factory settings ..
Avoid hibernate it ..cause will always preserve the last settings ..just close it proper each time ..this way it will boot and recognize devices each time from the start ..

Eratic movement of cursor using touch pad


Sounds like you have a touchpad malfunction. If its an older laptop, I would recommend replacing it. Not worth the hassle of trying to install a new touchpad...
