If the Touchpad has stopped working, don’t worry because you are not the first or even the last!
I’m not the type to dwell on writing, probably because being a technician I’m used to getting straight to the point and solving the problem.
Today I will tell you how to solve the problem once and for all, I have always applied the following solutions on Asus computers charging 10-20€ based on the time it took me to solve the problem and they almost always worked.
Those few times when these procedures did not help me, I had to disassemble the computer to go and repair the hardware components.
Are you ready? Let’s get started!
Buy an external mouse, or from your local electronics store. Always check that you have a usb port available before buying it.
The first Solution I suggest you try is to try to see if pressing the following keys makes everything work again.
Press the Fn + F9 key to turn the TouchPad on or off.
If it still does not work try following this procedure.
Access the Bios by pressing F2 at startup.
Go to Advanced and with the arrow keys go down to the Internal Pointing Device function, press enter and select [Enabled]
After setting it to [Enabled] press F10 to save the settings and exit.
Still haven’t solved it? Continue reading
If you still haven’t been able to solve the problem or the previous solutions weren’t right for you, try reinstalling the touchpad driver by following this guide
In a nutshell, you will have to go to the official Asus website, enter your PC model and select the operating system you are using.
Find the Touchpad driver, search for driver versions, download them all, and try installing them one at a time until you find the right one.
Theoretically you should go and get the exact version, but explaining, understanding and running it takes too much time. That’s why I suggest you try to install them one by one, we’ll do it faster 🙂 🙂
If you still haven’t solved the problem, go to your trusted technician because it will surely be a hardware problem.
