    Try using to click fn+f9 if it didnt work maybe u didnt installed the touch pad driver and good luck


    Hello, usually with laptops you have to use a function key to enable touchpad.   Depending on laptop's brand it can be different.  For Asus it should be Fn+F9 at same time.

      thank you anonymous, I could move the cursor but the tapping would not work, I had to go into the settings via the Control panel-Mouse- Device Settings and click the enable on the tapping. Wouldn't have thought of it without your help
