It ain't a computer but rather a panel (touch buttons) on a microwave that is mounted on top of the stove. after some time, with all kind of frying oil and cooking steam flowing inside and all over the microwave, the touch pad panel started to lose button functioning gradually until almost all buttons do not work even if you press so ******* them.
it is dismanteled now, any idea how to clean the sticky glass and whats underneath without damaging the bottons?

you probably haven't installed the touch-pad driver yet. go to the computer manufacturers website and look for the touch-pad driver that is specific to your laptop
Also I would say that it is a setting in your control panel if you have used any other mice or install another mouse drivers it may have affected you touch pad. I would suggest looking at the synaptic setting and see if there is an option to set the touch pad to default settings. If all else fails you can try to reinstall the synaptic drivers from the laptop support site. I hope this helps.
1 . Look for Fn function key - Most laptops have this special key Fn that is next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It should have a blue or green color, easy to find.
2 . Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touch pad, which is to control the touch pad of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.
3 . Now hold down the Fn key and the F10 key to enable the touch pad, in this example, the Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it
4 . If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touch pad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touch pad driver is installed and working properly.
Looks like you may have inadvertently pressed the Function (FN) key associated with the touchpad. try re-enabling it by pressing Function(FN) and the corresponding F key. For my computer it's F5...but on others it has been F7...just look for the symbol that looks like a touchpad. This should cover it. (: Good Luck!
It is possible that it could be a software issue. First go into the control panel and remove the touch pad listed in the device manager. Now you might lose control of the touch pad so you will need to use ctr, alt, and delete at the same time to bring up the option to re-boot the computer. After you re-boot windows should recognize the touchpad and re-install the drivers. Hopefully that gets the scroll function working for you again. If not you can alos try downloading the latest driver updates from dell for you computer touchpad and see if that works. If not could be the touchpad is defective.
I had the same problem after purchasing an HP laptop with a Synaptics TouchPad. After using a wireless mouse for awhile, the TouchPad stopped working. The TouchPad light was white, indicating it was enabled. No TouchPad devices was listed anymore in the Mouse Properties in the Control Panel. I tried reloading the driver but nothing changed.
After shutting down the laptop and removing the battery (according to owner’s manual) it worked again. After turning on the laptop, make sure the TouchPad works. Then go to Control Panel, Mouse, Device Settings tab, and make sure a Synaptics TouchPad is listed in the Devices list and that the Enable button is grayed out.
Same thing here, I can not find out how to diable the touch paid. I spent an hour chatting on-line with Dell Tech support and they did nothing to help!! I am starting to think it can not be done on this machine. Please someone tell use how to do this?
