My Father purchased me a refurbished Gateway cx 2610 notebook. I am currently in Iraq and its great for keeping in touch ect. This morning I woke and the touchpad is nonresponsive. I attempted to restore the system to an earlier date through system tools to a date I knew it worked but no progress. I'm using an external mouse. Any help out there?

Check for new drivers for the touch pad out on Gateway's website and maybe check in BIOS to be sure that when you plug in an external mouse it doesn't disable the touch pad. Some laptops only let you do one or the other. Also if there is any software for the touchpad aside from drivers try reinstalling that also.

Touchpad settings: right click on the touchpad icon on the Taskbar at the bottom right of the screen. Click on Default button, then Apply, then OK. Re-try. If that doesn't fix, then TouchPad ribbon inside the laptop needs to be replaced.
