Laptop mousepad just disconnected

    I was sitting there using my laptop as per usual and the mouse pad icon came on screen to say disconnected!!! What the hell. Any ideas how to fix? Have i knocked a button?


    Are you talking about the Touchpad or the Mouse?
    If it's the mouse that's been said to have disconnected then reinstall the driver

    What laptop do you have?

    Sorry it's the touchpad. I have a Medion Akoya.

    Buy a new laptop.

    It could be that you have accidently pressed an Fn function
    such as on my laptop Fn + F9 controls the touchpad on/off
    does yours have an Fn button?

    I restarted and it works now, weird. Thanks anyway.

    Or if it's more technical, then it can be fixed the same way as a mouse
    for Windows XP, go to
    Start - Right click My Computer - Select Properties - Hardware - Device Manager - Mouse and other pointing devices -
    and then you will see a touchpad status, then it may be best to update the driver first
    so just right click and select update on that touchpad name
