    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.

    Sometimes touchpad does not work while charging.

    Start - Control Panel - Mouse - Device Settings
    Just find the tab that has the synaptics logo
    enable touchpad should if disabled

      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
