Yesterday my touchpad stopped working. My laptop is touchscreen (its a drawing laptop) and it can bend backwards and all that. I tried f9+fn and it only told me that my touchpad was disabled. My f9 has a picture of a slash through a mousepad, but none of the other keys have just a mousepad. I don't know what happened or how to fix it. I've looked online and haven't found any different solutions besides different combinations of the control keys and fn. I just recently got this laptop and I really hope this isn't just an issue in the laptop design.
 
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".

Also, you might want to check for updates to your drivers, including the Synaptics drivers.

If this does not help, and an external mouse works fine, then it may well be a hardware issue.
