I took the laptop apart to replace the lcd touchscreen part and when i put it back together, the touchpad won't work. I've verified numerous times that all the cables and ribbons are plugged in and fastened but no luck. the keyboard works just not the touchpad. any ideas would be greatly appreciated! :) thank you in advance!
 
Touchpad not working? Try the following and see if it fixes it...

1. Go into "Control Panel".
2. Click "Hardware and Sound".
3. Now click "Mouse and Touchpad".
4. Now go to "Additional mouse options".
5. The Mouse Properties window will open. In here click on your device.
6. Make sure your device is set to enabled. If it isn't then click "Enable Device".
7. Exit both that screen and "Control Panel".

It should work now.

Also, you might also want to check for updates to your drivers.
