This may be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the touch pad drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. The touch pad either works or it doesn't, there's no in between, so if this doesn't work, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the touch pad.

    Oh, one more thing. Check the connector for the touch pad, sometimes they can work loose or get a little corrosion built up.

Mouse pad won't work


Reinstall the driver for the touch pad. If tha still doesn't work, I would suspect the touch pad itself and buy a new touch pad for your laptop, or an external usb/wireless mouse.

HP 2530p EliteBook - touchpad stopped working. Scrolling works except touch scrolling on right side of pad) and right button, but that's all. Wireless mouse works fine.


To access Mouse Properties, select Start - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -Mouse.

Use Mouse Properties in Windows to customize settings for pointing devices, such as button configuration, click speed, and pointer options.

D600 cursor goin crazy


Hi There,
This is a common issue with Dell D-series laptops. Try re-installing the driver for the touchpad, updating your BIOS, and cleaning the touchpad with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip.
If none of that works, it's officially broken, and you can replace it or just use an external USB mouse

uninstall it

then restart laptop
hopefully when you restart windows will find new hardware
and reinstall the touch pad correctly

good luck

if not go to website and download another driver for it

Emachines e725 Touchpad Not Working


The eMachines E725 has a built in switch to toggle the touchpad on or off by the touch of a button. Look at the button to the left of the main power switch. You'll notice the icon looks like a hand touching a rectangle - or touchpad. if this button is lit up, the touchpad is turned off. simply press the button to toggle the touchpad back on. The light on the button should now be off.
It's that simple.

Mouse touch pad problem Lenovo Y410 model notebook


Just above my keyboard there is a little black strip with little lights.
they are control buttons and if you tap one of them it turns the touchpad off and on (so it's very easy to do accidentally).

 If you look really closely at the strip in good light (or restart the laptop to see them flash on and off) you'll see that one looks like a touchpad crossed out. Just press this to get your touchpad back.

If it doesnt solve the problem, I have noticed that the touchpad can be knocked out by a Window Update of something called ideacom. If you believe this could be the problem please clarify.
