Most probably, your friend disconnected the cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard while disassembling the laptop to fix the DC power pin, & forgot to reconnect it back.
You will need to partially disassemble the laptop again & reconnect the touchpad to the motherboard.

My mouse pad stopped working on my Compaq Presario 2200.


if this is the touchpad, try to reinstall the touchpad driver. You can uninstall it through the device manager while using an external mouse, then download the latest driver from your system manufacturer's web site. After that, make sure the touchpad is enabled and if this does not work, you may need a replacement touchpad, though you may also try system restore or OS reinstall.
