    This is the 5th time I'm using my laptop.(Only have it for 4 weeks now) My touchpad / mousepad stopped working. I tried installing new drivers, but still no luck. I'm running Windies 7, and also have a cordless mouse (luckily) - but this is also giving some problems.

    My main concern is that the mousepad on laptop is not working.
    Please help.

    After reading your posting it is not easy to say what is wrong there. Who knows what happen with your touchpad?
    Do you use original Windows 7 that you got with your notebook?
    Can you enable or disable touchpad using FN+F9 key combination?

    Xaver..that's what's so confusing. One minute it was working and then it just stops working. I tired the FN + F9 combination...no luck, and I'm using original Windows 7 that came with. Should I do a system restore to the last day touchpad worked? Bit scared of doing that, as I don't want to lose data.

    You can try to set the system to the early time point and this would not affect your data stored on the HDD.
    Just the applications which were installed after this time point would be uninstalled but I think this should not be a big problem for you.

    But you should backup the data if you want to recover the notebook using HDD recovery or the recovery disk!

    Greets & good luck

    Thatís not really tricky.

    Go to:
    All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System restore

    Now you will be able to choose an early time point.
