My dog stood on the laptop whilst it was turning on and now the mousepad wont work.

I've managed to connect a mouse to it but am now seeking advice on how to make the pad work again please?

Thanks

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Press the button or Fn + some other key combination that toggles the trackpad. Look on your laptop and you should be able to work out which key to push by looking at the icons on the F keys.

My cat often walks across my girlfriend's laptop, often while she is trying to type :P

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz - phew.

Found a funky key symbol on the F7 with a picture of a hand and pressed it along with the fm key and a message came up saying mousepad enabled.... then all my text went funky (wasn't my typing for once). Panic over and lots my pressing fm's and everything is working.... thanks everyone... you are stars (especially dxx) ;)
