Hello -

Recently I tried to clean out my computer. I ended up erasing a startup entry using CCleaner, if I remember correctly it was Synaptics PS/2 or something of that sort. Since then my touchpad hasn't worked, nor has it appeared in device manager.

I have tried installing the driver from both asus and synaptics websites, the driver for the chipset, scanning for new hardware changes, and nothing has worked. I have system restore turned off unfortunately. The only thing that appears in device manager is my usb trackball mouse. I have also tried the toggle button for the touchpad, and the fn + f3 which does the same thing, to no avail.

I am running XP. I've done multiple AV/malware scans which consistently show no infection. The system is kept up to date with current windows updates, and otherwise has no issues of any kind.

I'm really lost on this one, any ideas?

Whats the make/model of the laptop? So that we can get you to the correct drivers for your touchpad
In the beginning there was the command line.

Here are the drivers for your system.
The touchpad is under Mouse & Keyboard & is the last one listed.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Sorry, the model is Asus Eee PC 1005HA. The Dell is the machine I am on right now.

I already tried reinstalling the driver, both from the Asus website and Synaptic website, also the chipset driver. It didn't work, still not displaying in device manager either.

Try version 14 from Asus here
These are the correct ones for your touchpad.

(Personally I hate those things. They hurt my hands & I always use a USB mouse instead)
In the beginning there was the command line.
