Windows 7: Touchpad problem on my laptop

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Touchpad problem on my laptop


I have a problem with my touchpad on my VAIO laptop. I can't get it to work (tried almost everything). So I decided to low-format my HDD with diskpart's clean all command - and I did. When I then rebooted the laptop with the Windows 7 DVD in the optical drive and the DVD loaded - at the first screen, when the mouse/touchpade pointer shows itself the touchpad was working for about two seconds (I was able to move the pointer!). But then it stopped again. It's like something (really don't know what because the whole HDD is low-formatted using Diskpart's Clean all command) disabled the touchpad after the two seconds. Maybe this could be a hind: when I firsto got my brand new VAIO I disabled the touchpad after a few days and then later one quick-formated the HDD when installing an other version of Windows 7 x64 (not the preinstalled one). I tought that maybe it's possible that the "disabled touchpad setting" got saved on some hidden place (hidden partition?) so I low-formated it now to get to the bottom of this mystery. But it's still not working. At least I know that it's not a hardware problem. Does anyone know what could it be and how could I re-enable it again?

Thank you!

Hello Bellzemos and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'd suggest trying to restore your Vaio to factory configuration. If you have the ASSIST button:
1. Press that button while your computer is off. That will start the Vaio Care Rescue program.
2. Click on Start Recovery Wizard > Tools > Start advanced recovery wizard.
3. Follow on screen instructions.

If your computer does not have the ASSIST button:
1. Turn on the computer and immediately start clicking the F10 key several times before the Vaio logo screen disappears.
2. When the Edit Boot Options screen is displayed click the Enter key.
3. Follow steps 2 and 3 above.
