Disabled Mouse Pad..

I disabled my mouse pad by accident. I can't get it to work for the life of me now. There's a little red light on the top left corner of the touch pad. I tried resetting devices in synaptics, but still nothing. Please help. Thanks in advance

Hi Mike,

Is there a touchpad ON/OFF button on the laptop? Just above the keyboard buttons?

Regards,

No there's not, but I just switched users and when I came back to my profile it was working

Not sure what happened. Thanks for the quick reply, though. Really appreciate it.

Thats OK. Switch back to the other, original user again, and see if the problem is still there. If so, then its user related and we can track it down.

It's working on all users. Now I'm REALLY confused. I wish I knew as much about PC's as you guys do. I know a lot about Android, just a little (read: a lot) slow with PC's haha

Perhaps you changed it under Customisation, and it never held for some reason.

Nevermind, it works now, so its all good.

Thanks again for the help. Is there a "thanks" or a "rep" button anywhere I can click for you?

edit: found it

its the scales top right of the post you want to rep, between the square and the triangle.

on most laptops there is a trackpad disable key ,on mine it is F8 on others its F6 etc,
there may be a little symbol on the key that has a square with a line through it ,
to resemble a trackpad .
to operate this key you have to hold down the Fn key then press the F8 (or whichever key it may be) whilst still holding down Fn. worth checking out as it will be easier for you to re-enable the pad in future.
