- Driver Problems
- Other issues with touchpad
Drivers are pieces of software that control the computer's hardware and it would be the probable reason for your touchpad malfunction. There is a chance that some user error or virus activity would have damaged or removed the driver. In order to check this out, first you should access your computer's device manager to check for any problems with the driver. Under the 'Pointing Devices' heading, the device manager should indicate whether there is a driver problem. If there is any problem with the driver then should try for a replacement driver which would be available for download on the laptop website of the manufacturer.
Other issues with touchpad
If your touchpad driver is working but it still does not function properly, then it is possible that the connection might have failed. If this is the case, then you are required to contact an expert technician for checking and repairing the connection. In some other cases, say, an issue with the motherboard will require its replacement and it could be more costly than the laptop's value warrants.
If your touchpad stops functioning, then you should try to connect a mouse to your laptop and you could do this either by USB, or PS2. The laptop should automatically detect and install the mouse, which would give you mouse functionality. If this does not happen, then you might have to search for a driver for your mouse on the website of the manufacturer.
