    UPDATE: I FIXED MY TOUCHPAD! Not sure if this might help anyone else, but here's what I found...

    I was looking at my function keys. On my Gateway, NV53A, I noticed F6... it shows what I thought was a screen, with a finger touching it, and the circle with a line in it (on/off presumably). Out of curiosity, I hit Fn+F6, and BAM!! I have my touchpad back!

    Not sure where else I could post this to help, but all week I have been looking thru 100's of posts about the same issue. I don't know that this is the perfect answer, but it solved my problem.

    THANK YOU!!

    Until tonight, my touchpad has not worked since I upgraded my Toshiba laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 a month ago. I have installed several different driver versions, rebooted I-don't-know-how-many-times, disabled/enabled the touchpad through the device manager, unplugged/re-seated the usb for my bluetooth mouse, yada, yada, yada, and still my touchpad would not work. Then I read your post ...

    I cannot believe that this button does not do the same thing as the device manager enable/disable functions. It isn't as if it's a switch ... it's just a toggle button. <boggle>

    Guess I should've mentioned, I'm running a clean install of 10. Older drivers that I could install didn't work and others wouldn't even install. Amazing... because DM says 'this device is working properly' and it obviously isn't, so I say, what good is device manager??? What does it actually do? Because it certainly can't see the device isn't working!

    Just wanted to thank you AB - the Fn+F6 (it's F5 on mine though) has fixed this issue for me -

    HOLY CRAP! How the heck have I never noticed that?!?!?! You TOTALLY just saved my sanity! I have been wrestling with this stinkin' thing for about a month now using a tiny travel mouse with retractable cord that just annoys the heck outta me.
    (Just so you know, I seriously registered with the forum today just so I could reply to this and thank you!!!)

    I've been pulling my hair out updating Windows 10 drivers, rolling back, restarting for over a week now and then I saw your simple solution and OMG! F7 fixed my Acer Aspire Touchpad!

    There is indeed a F7 button with a finger pointing to thouchpad and so I pressed Fn & F7 and t worked!

    I hope other sufferers discover your post and can fix their touchpad problem :-)

    Hey :-)
    i just upgraded to Windows 10, and everything is working fine exept for my Elan touchpad.
    I have never experienced it not working for Windows 8.
    Please help.
    I had the same problem on my Windows 10 toshiba laptop. I was just browsing and then the touchpad randomly stopped working. Like the mouse would not move. I was pressing tons of different buttons trying to get it to work but it simply would not move. I know this is stating the obvious but have you tried shutting down your PC and opening it again? I simply shut down my PC and turned it on again and there it was. My mouse was working again.
    Hope this helped people.
    Goodluck.
