Touchpad Not Working

Im using HP Pavilion DV-6 1161 TX...I installed Windows 7 ultimate OEM the other day..The touchpad doesnt seem to work at all...Installed the synaptics drivers time and again...but nothing seems to work...Most of the times, the touchpad power light is always on and refuses to turn off...Im using an external mouse for the time being...If any1 could find a solution to this problem....it would be really helpful..Also the synaptics doesnt show up in the device manager...

Go to device manager (type it in on start menu search) and go to 'Mice and other pointing devices'. Double click on the 'PS2 Port Touchpad' (or something like that) and look at driver status. If there is anything interesting, please tell us.

I am note sure why installing the latest drivers doesn't help .

Have you checked your BIOS?

1. Check if your touchpad is enabled (Possibly disabled?)
2. Manually install the driver listed above

Hope this helps

I was about to say that, you got there first as i was on another thread! haha

@shaju304
To get to the BIOS, as soon as you boot up, tap F2. Look arond there, and just look for anything to do with 'pointing devices' or 'touchpad' or something like that.

Synapsis Touchpad not working
The virtual scroll on my touchpad isnt working. Is it because the driver is corrupt? and if so, would reinstalling the driver fix it?
