Touchpad not working

I have a fairly new Easynote TE. Tonight the touchpad froze. I've tried FN and F7 but no luck. I've checked the driver and it is the most up to date. Is there anything else I can try? Thanks.

Don't know about your particular machine, but some laptops have a switch which switches the touchpad off.

Might be worth checking - always try the easy solutions first!

Have you tried pressing FN first then F6 or F7 key. It should have an icon on the key showing a square with hand pointing with a circular 'no' sign on it.

Other option, use an usb mouse to go to control panel, select mouse, in the mouse properties select Synaptics touchpad, device settings, and see if you can enable from there.

Thanks rdave13 - it was the F6 key - nowhere else mentioned this one at all!
