Not really sure what genre this problem should be on. However i have recently purchased a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li2727 notebook. Working fine when i got it but i decided to use a usb mouse instead of touchpad now the touchpad has stopped working entirely even when usb mouse id plugged out. i really want to resolve the problem. i have already gone onto control panal, mouse but the touchpad does not come up as a device. Any help appriciated thanks.

Re: Touchpad not working but usb mouse does, doesnt work evn wen usb mouse nt plugged

Hello Tristan,

Welcome to the forums.

Been a while since I had a laptop, but I seem to remember there being a setting on what to do with the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in. Unfortunately I don't remember where and have no way of finding it.

Have you tried rebooting with the mouse unplugged?

Sorry I can't be of more help. The manual for the laptop ought to have that info in it somewhere.

Gary

Uninstall the drivers you installed for the USB mouse - they are overriding or conflicting with the drivers of the touchpad.

Actually, on second thought, see if you can get the drivers for the touchpad from the Fujitsu site - that might fix it also. If not, then uninstall the USB mouse drivers, and then you may still have to install the touchpad drivers *again*.

there should be a key on your keyboard saying FN, hold that key down and on one of the number keys, there should be an icon that looks like a touchpad, with the FN key held down, press the touchpad key and viola, it will work.
