Hi dolley:

 

 

Thank you for your request.  I am pleased to help!

 

When posting it is most helpful if you provide the model of your computer and what Operating system you are running.  I understand you accidentally turned off the Touchpad., and would now like to enable it. I am sending you a link to a page for  touchpad. You will need to select the one for your operating system click here. You should also be able to enable it,  following these steps. Click the Start button, and type in Mouse. Click on  Mouse to open it, click on Device Settings. You should be able to enable and disable the Touchpad here.

hi,

probably you accidentally touch upper left corner of touch pad, please dobule tap again on upper left corner of your touch pad, also you'll see orange led light when touch pad disabled.

This solution not for all models HP laptops, please let me know if it's helps and write your laptop model.

I have the same problem, however the double click on left top corner did not turn it back on.  Also no light indicator is showing to tell me that it is off.  Also, the right & left buttons work- just not the pad itself.  HP pavilion dm4-3090se.  Please help!! Have to be plugged in to use another keyboard, defeats the purpose of having the laptop!!
