TouchPad not working after Bios update

Hey there! @ModyTheOne, Thanks for stopping by the HP Support Forums! 

 

I understand you have touchpad issues with your PC.

 

Don't worry I'll try to help you out.

 

Did you make any software or hardware changes on your PC?

 

Have you tried checking with an external mouse?

 

I appriciate your efforts for trying out the steps before reaching out to us.

 

I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

 

As you mentioned the touchpad has stopped functioning after the BIOS update.

 

Also, if you still have issues try updating the BIOS and touchpad drivers on your PC using HP support assistant.

 

Refer this article to know more information about using the HP support assistant.

 

You can also try the steps recommended below if the still persists after trying the steps recommended before.

 

Control Panel -> Hardware & Sound -> Power Options -> Change Plan Settings (of current selected plan) -> Change Advanced Power Settings -> USB Selective Suspend Setting -> Disable (both)


Control Panel -> Hardware & Sound -> Power Options -> Change Plan Settings (of current selected plan) -> Change Advanced Power Settings -> PCI-Express -> Link State Power Management -> Disable (both)

 

If the issue still persists after trying out the steps try the steps recommended below.

 

In Windows, search for Command Prompt. In the search results, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. Then click Yes.
In Command Prompt, type sfc /scannow. Make sure to include the space between sfc and the /.
Press Enter and wait while System File Checker scans for corrupted files.
When scanning is complete, the results are displayed on the screen.
If the file checker found and replaced any corrupted files, restart the computer and check the performance.
If the file checker did not find any corrupted files or found corrupted files but could not replace them, go to the next step.
If System File Checker finds corrupted files but cannot replace them, use the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool. DISM checks the corrupted files; then downloads and replaces the files using Windows Update.
In Windows, open a web browser.
   NOTE:
You need to be connected to the Internet to use DISM.
In Windows, search for Command Prompt. In the search results, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. Then click Yes.
In Command Prompt, type dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth. Make sure to include the space before each / in the command line.
Press Enter and wait while DISM works. This might take several minutes.
If DISM finds corrupted files, it replaces them using Windows Update. If this occurs, after DISM is finished, restart your computer and see if the performance has improved.

Also, try running a system diagnostics test on your PC and check if the hardware components on your PC are functioning correctly.
