Recently my laptop touchpad stopped working. Windows had to just restart unexpectedly and after the restart I saw an icon with touchpad and cross over it and i noticed that laptop touchpad was not working at all. I use a USB mouse with laptop which I unplugged to see the changes but got same problem. I restarted again, installed the touchpad driver again, restarted again but no luck. Orange light at touchpad was on and it was not working at all even when touchpad driver was installed. Then I tried the simple solution and it worked for me. Here is how to Fix Touchpad Not Working in Laptop.
