Did you perform the reboot using the same OS as the previous. If you did, the you are facing one possible problem:
The drivers for the touch pad not installed.

In this case, you would have to install the touch pad drivers for your system model, and that would also support your Operating system.

But if you did the reboot, using a different OS, then you have 2 possible problems:
The first is that there are no drivers installed, and should be treated as afore discussed.
The second is that the drivers are installed but do not support the new OS. You would then have to install the driver that would be compatible with your new OS. That could be downloaded.

You can check if the drivers are installed from the device manager.

Hope that was helpful?
Take care.

I have a probleme with my asus eee 900 ;the touchpapd is not working any more can i get omme hlp have this problem for a month now

There are many reasons that your touchpad doesn't work.
First check if you have in the BIOS, the Multi pointing devices Enabled. Then go to the device manager and check it any pointing device is installed but first disconnect any other external component form your Notebook like external mouse, keyboad and other pointing devices.
The Device manager will tell you that is the status of the pointing device connected. If no pointing device appear in device manager, it means that your touchpad doesn't communicate with the mainboard even if is connected.
Scan for new hardware in the menu of device manager. If the device manager find a pointing device, restart the comuter and try if the touchpad works.

Asus 10065ha xp both touchpad and external mouse not working touchpad went first. then worked with external mouse. then only touchpad. now both not working.

Unplug your external mouse and restart your laptop. Check to see if the touchpad works, if it doesn't reinstall the driver. Unplug all other USB devices and plug your mouse back into a different USB port. It should be detected now. Cheers, Ravi Shanghavi

Eee 1005ha keyboard and touchpad suddenly freezes at random times

Mine does the same. I don't know what it is. It's not that it's frozen up because every program I'm running continues to run and when I press the power off button it brings up the choices to turn off restart or stand by.

Keyboard errors on Asus Eee pc 1000HD

sounds strange but ...

1 - check the mouse settings
2 - or ... turn-off the touchpad (under "touchpad settings")
3 - check/reset "keyboard settings"

see if you can narrow this down, with some detective work.
