Hold down the FN Key + F6 (OR the corresponding F key for the touchpad)

The B1900 can have its touch pad turned on and off.

Its a good feature when you just want to use an external mouse.

Hope this helps

Both the buttons of my Compaq Presario C700 touchpad stopped working all of a sudden.

You have perhaps a CD for your presario Compaq computer. Try to insert that in your CD rom and look for the touch pad to enable. Or just look for the touch pad in your device manager and enable it. To open the device manager, right click computer and go to properties and click hardware then click device manager. If touch pad is in the list enable it.
