: It was days ago.

My touchpad stopped working.

I looked all over the internet, tried all the things people suggested, and none of them worked. I did a driver intall, system restore, and prayed.
It was in vain.

The ability to get a touchpad working without sending your computer away is a secret only one has accomplished, but if we work together, perhaps we could unlock the secret.

I have been trained in the black arts of computer repair. And saying thus, you may try this at your soul's own risk.

After giving up all hope that I will ever see my computer in working order again, I just took out the battery and unplugged the computer. When I put those back in and turned it on, it worked!! My computer is back to normal.

Maybe it wasn't just that? Maybe it was a combination of things.
One this is for sure though - I turned off automatic updates forever.

Taking out the battery and replacing it resets the CMOS so it's not such a surprise that it worked, but something that could be overlooked. Many thanks sithlord666.

On my HP computer there is a redbox to the left of the battery sign if u put your mouse over it it will say synaptics pointing device, then if u click on it will say { tap to click} click on it and a check mark will appear near it then u should be able to use your touch pad again at least thats what it did for me hopefully this helps someone.

I agree with sithlord666. Turn off the Windows update, and your laptop will live longer and happier.

Amazing....It's been a few years since the above post, but I have to agree that I didn't believe it either. I've been going crazy for the past 6 months, simply using a USB mouse.

I removed the battery for 5 mins, unplugged my USB mouse, and then reinserted the battery (minus the power cord). And pow! My touchpad is back!

Just to be sure there wasn't some other odd connection issue, I "cleaned" the connections on the battery and laptop using compressed air, and also took out the hard drive right under the touchpad (simply remove the 2 screws) and air-dusted underneath as well.

Obviously, not a driver issue...many thanks!
