Mouse won't appear or move?

Hi, I'm using HP Pavilion g6, 3 days ago my mouse/touchpad stopped moving. I googled suggestions on how to fix, I tried the Fn+F key method, didn't work, I then tried taking the battery out and holding the power button down for 10 seconds then turn it back on again. Once I turned the laptop on again the cursor totally disappeared from the screen. I then read you had to tap the dimple in the touchpad twice. I have tried that every so often since it stopped working but it has never worked and I have tried to hold Fn+F keys with every single F key, from F1-12 and it still isn't working and I then tried the device manager method but for some reason I couldn't find the 'Mice and other pointing devices' section until I plugged my USB mouse in and finally I found the Synaptics Touchpad Driver but it had an exlamation mark over the little icon and I downloaded/installed all the updates but it still isn't working. I hope one of you know a solution to this, cheers.
