Using your keyboard, press the windows hot key, then use the arrow keys to go up and to the right to control panel, then arrow over to the system icon, then arrow through the tabs to the hardware tab, then press TAB to select the "device manager" button and click enter....in the device manager, press tab again in order to highlight the first selection and arrow down to "mouse and other pointing devices" then press the right arrow key to expand that selection and see if it is recognizing your mouse pad, if it does, highlight it and press enter, arrow over to the "driver" tab and try updating the driver, if that doesn't work, try a troubleshoot from the first properties tab.....and if none of this works......the touchpad is most likely dead. Try contacting the manufacturer and see if they can replace the touch pad.....

Step 2


If you are using touchpad, try reducing the Touchpad sensitivity and check

1. Click on the "Start" icon in the lower left corner of the screen. Select "Control Panel." Next select "Mouse" under "Hardware and Sound." You can also left-click the touchpad while the cursor is anywhere on the desktop. From that screen, choose "Mouse Pointers."
2. Select the "
Buttons" tab at the top of the dialog box that opens. This shows the type of touchpad device installed on your laptop.
3. Set the touchpad for right or left-handed use from this dialog box. You can adjust the double click speed of your computer as well. When you finish making any changes, click "
Apply."
4. Pick the "
Device Settings" tab from the dialog box now. You can see the touchpad for your Vista machine highlighted on this screen. Select "Settings."
5. Read the information provided in the next dialog box. It gives you options for tapping your
touchpad, using the buttons, scrolling, pointer motion and sensitivity.
6. Make any changes you want from the various topics. When you make a change, click "
Apply." Click "OK" when you finish making all your changes.
7. Do some work on your computer for a while, If the touchpad is still too sensitive, return to the "Mouse" menu and continue to adjust the settings until you get them just the way you want them.

Touchpad stopped working cannot move pointer arrow around screen


Hi,

Just check for the key combination on your key board (ex. Fn + F4 or F5..depends on the what key was designed for the touchpad), the touchpad might be locked.

If it is not locked, reinstall the touchpad driver, but it this still doesn't work, boot to Safe Mode to check if it does. Touch pad still not responding in Safe Mode would mean hardware failure.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like wear on the contacts, if you can try applying a little pressure to the centre of the pad, and it works better, this is the issue. As a first resort, you could try and download the touchpad driver and re-install it, howver, this is a common fault with the touchpad. You may need to have it replaced or possibly cleaned

Touchpad stopped working arrow still works


sounds like you need to adjust the sensitivity, as you can customize this to prevent accidental double taps.

you should have some software to configure your touchpad, this will either be from the manufacturer or you can use the "mouse settings" in control panel.
