Hello arzi,


Welcome to the HP Forums!

I understand the touchpad and touchscreen are not working on your computer anymore. I will do my best to assist you!


As a general troubleshooting step, if the issue began recently (a month or less, maybe a little more), you should try a System Restore. I want you to bring the computer back to the earliest restore point possible, in an attempt to dodge whatever caused the issue. Here is a document on how to perform a System Restore: System Restore


**Troubleshooting the touch screen**


To resolve the issue, I will need you to try the steps in this HP document: Troubleshooting Touch Screen Issues in Windows 8


I want you to troubleshoot the issue with the steps from the following sections: "Touch screen doesn't work after upgrading to Windows 8" and "Tapping the touch screen does not do anything".


**Troubleshooting the touchpad**


To resolve this issue, please review the troubleshooting in this document: Using and Troubleshooting the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 8)


Please perform the troubleshooting in this section only: "Troubleshooting when TouchPad does not work in Windows 8"


Next, if that document doesn't help, this one might: Troubleshooting Mouse Problems (Windows 8)


In that document, there is a generic section to troubleshoot when the pointer does not move. Please refer to the following section only: "Moving the mouse does not move the pointer"


Please let me know your outcome, and I shall continue to assist if necessary. Thanks and have a great day Smiley Happy
