Question about Computers & Internet
It is hard to tell if the touch-pad needs replacing from the information you gave. However, I can tell you that the touch-pad is NOT part of the keyboard.
There are several things the can cause the touch-pad not to work. 1) It may have been turned off in the BIOS. 2) It may have been turned off by the operating system software or 3) You may have installed a usb mouse which in some cases will override the touch-pad. 4) The touch-pad may have a bad connection into the motherboard or into the touch-pad circuits.
I wouldn't go replacing the pad until I had tried all the other possible areas because this requires a complete screw removal from the bottom, removing the display and keyboard. Then removal of the upper case of the laptop. I do this as a last resort.
