Hi wonder if anyone can help. My laptop was trodden on whilst closed (so the screen side of it) by a 6yr old boy, all of his weight on it. Screen didn't break in anyway shape or form but the touchpad won't work at all yet there is nothing on the system saying it isn't working. Device manager says all ok. Also a mouse works. Any idea? Thanks

 

It's an EasyNote TS, windows 7.

Some very delicate electronics involved in that touch pad.  Usually as an assembly with the keyboard.  Spare parts may be available, either from the mfgr or on the internet.

Or, perhaps someone wants, maybe even desperately a laptop with a non-working touchpad.  Just a thought.   I'm trying to get my touchpad to stay disabled and it still wants to hijack my thumbs while I'm typing.

I hatethose touch pads.  I kept brushing my sleeve across it and sending things off into the blue.  Bought a Lenovo model that has a Shift/F6 to disable it.

Well You won't believe it but all it simply was was one of the F keys which disables the touchpad for when you use a mouse had been pressed :hysterical: :smash:
