Check your settings first of all in the control panel by clicking on the icon. If all OK;

Go into Device manager (right click on Computer icon, select and click properties), device manager.

Go down to your 'touchpad' driver. It'll be under Mice and other pointing devices. Click the '+' sign next to the heading.

Right click on your pointing device name and choose properties.

Click driver.

Update driver.

If this doesn't work, plug mouse into your computer and use that.
Then do the same again but click 'Disable' and reboot computer.

Then do the same again and this time 'Enable'.

Then try it without the mouse.

If it works fine but then goes faulty again, it's either a faulty driver file or your touchpad needs replacing.

Try downloading the latest drivers, however, the symptom you describe is worn or dirty contacts on the underside of the touchpad, you could try removing and cleaning it but in all probability, it will need replacing

Small red light on the top left corner of the touch pad is not working. how can i fix it?

Depending on the make/model of the computer, there is sometimes an "on/off" button for the touchpad either at the edge of the pad, or in the function keys.

Is the pad actually working?

Unable to use touch pad....rt clk and slide key

If the laptop is that new, the problem is probably the touch pad "disable" button. Look for a small button just above or near the touch pad and make sure the touch pad is not turned off. If you cannot find the disable button, look in your user manual for the touch pad disable.

If the touch screen still works then you have the option to calibrate the touch pad via the NDS utility and the stylus.

If you cant recalibrate the touch pad then is very posible for it to be damaged and you shoud consider replacing the pad with a new one as you can find these replacements widely spreaded in the web not so expensive.
You can also find guides and videos on how to dissasemble the device and replace the touch pad by yourself taking care at all times to avoid causing a worst damage. You need a thomson screwdriver, usually sold in the same store where you find the pad and some small blade and philips screwdrivers. And a lot of patience...

Good Luck...
