                         Touchpad not working
  • Check if accidently disabled touchpad Every laptop keyboard has a built in hot keys that you let enable/disable the touchpad. Every laptop manufacturer has a combination of different functions (fn) for it. For Lenevo, Dell, HP, Toshiba, Acer and Asus laptop try using the following key combination.
  1. fn+f6
  2. fn+f9
  3. fn+f12
  4. fn+f5

It can be of any function from F1-F12, a small touchpad has been given on that function key. so, look closely. once you find it, hols "Fn" key and then press that function key.

  • Enable Touchpad from mouse setting Open start menu and type 'mouse setting' and open the first thing that comes touchpad setting and make sure the enable touchpad option is checked. Also see the taskbar icon for the touchpad icon (near the volume control) and see if it is disabled.

  • Re-install Touchpad Drivers Download or update your laptop's touchpad drivers.

  1. Go to "device manager" and find touchpad driver and update it.
  • Enable Touchpad from BIOS configuration Enter in BIOS setup, and navigate inside the BIOS utility.

Open the following

System properties > keyboard/mouse feauters > device options.

From there find the internal pointing device or touchpad, press enter and use arrow key to enable or disable it.

  • Reboot your laptop Shutdown your laptop, remove battery for about a minute, Re-attach the battery then start the laptop.
