Touchpad not working after installing a usb mouse

Touchpad not working after installing a usb mouse
Views: 304
My touchpad stopped working after I had installed a usb mouse (and an IR remote). I searched numerous forums and tried everything out there with no success, including the following:
Tried the function key to turn touchpad on/off (the most obvious source of the problem)
tried reinstalling driver for touchpad from the manufacturer web site

went to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Mouse to enable touchpad - touchpad was no longer even listed
There were no problems showing up in the Device Manager

Touchpad needs to turn off.

I want to turn OFF the touchpad on my laptop. I can't find where to do that. Ther are 3 drivers in devices and disabling one at at time, one of them can get the USB wireless mouse to stop but not the touchpad.
Where is that done? Used to be with the control panel mouse but I don't see it.

Touchpad for the Acer Aspire 3000 Series

I have read through the forums on other Synaptic touchpad related issues and tried several of the items offered. So far neither the generic driver or the Acer specific driver as produced a good result. I still have no working touchpad. The software loads on boot and all appears normal till you attempt to move or scroll by touchpad. USB mouse still works fine and all other functions appear normal. I am open to any other suggestions. Hopefully someone else has had such a situation and found a solution.

Sony Vaio VGN-FZ140 Alps touchpad not working on Win 7

Today I upgraded my Vaio VGN-FZ140 laptop from Vista Home Premium 32-Bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit and everything is working great (motioneye camera, physical media controls buttons like vol up/down, etc.) except the Alps touchpad does not work at all. It is not listed in the Device Manager under Mice/Pointing Devices and I tried installing the Vista driver from the Sony website and nothing. I use an external USB mouse as-well and that works fine.

Touchpad not working.

Touchpad works until I enter log in pass and fully boot. Then can only use Blue Tooth mouse. Updated touchpad drivers but no luck turning on touchpad. With Vista it was as simple as turning Blue Tooth off. Computer is Alienware m15X. Any ideas?
Forgot to mention the Fn + F12 Key turns the lights on and off the touchpad but do not allow it to work.

USB trackball and laptop touchpad problems

I'm running Win7 64bit Home Premium on my new Asus G60VX laptop and I'm having a problem. The laptop touchpad worked just fine until the first time I plugged in my USB trackball. Now the touchpad will only work in the login/welcome screen, after I sign in it is non-responsive even when the trackball is not connected. Is there anything I can do to make them both function at the same time or at least have the touchpad work when no USB pointing device is connected?

Laptop touchpad not working

Its a toshiba laptop. i tried to install the touchpad driver for it, and it shows that the device is working properly through the device manager, but nothing happens. I've tried turning the touchpad on and off and it still does nothing. the mouse worked perfectly fine when i had xp installed on it, but once i changed to windows 7, it just stopped working.
I was just hoping that somebody else maybe had this problem and found a way to fix it. other than that its a good os. really big upgrade over vista.

Keyboard won't work in Windows 7 if I touch the touchpad after being in Ubuntu

Problem: After being in ubuntu and rebooting into windows 7 all is fine in windows until I touch the touchpad.
If I touch the touchpad at all, I am not able to type anything at all in windows. If I boot in, and just use the usb mouse, that's ok it always works fine, and the typing is fine...until I touch the touchpad!
If I reboot a 2nd time then everything is normal. This is a fresh install on windows 7 with ubuntu 9.04
