Hi, i've somehow disabled my mouse on a Lenovo PC, I know I pressed a few of the fn keys, and have tried the usual things I would in the past but it has not worked.

Please advise me on how to enable my mouse pad again, Lenovo Ideapad 100
 
Now did you disable a mouse (which would be external) or a touchpad (which is a part of the laptop). I am guessing you mean the latter, since you said 'pad', if so try the following.

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.

NOTE: You can follow the same instructions, if it is an external mouse, just choose the mouse in the listed devices instead.
