Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I've just replaced the hard drive of my laptop compac nx9010. There was an optical tap on the old drive which I took it off and stuck on the new but my touch pad mouse is not working. Can you please advice me how to fix it.

Answers :

Go to control panel, and to Device manager under system, make sure you install the driver for touch pad, if not do that( download it from the website from the manfacture of your laptop) , if you did make sure that the connecter cable is pluged for the touch pad, you have to open your laptop, and connect small cable to the touch panel.
