probably. Open the device manager and see if you can find your touchpad in the list of hardware. If you can't, or theres an unknow/defective item, your touchpad has gone to a better place.

w/e, my sister just got a new comp then. ill just plug it into the monitor.

its a vaio sr140d p8400 2gb ram. pretty solid, but just to anyone reading this, never buy a vaio sr series. theres a glitch with the battery and it wont last for more than 2 hr. its extensively catalogued on netbookreviews.com so. wasnt much of a laptop lol, always had to stay plugged in.

thanks for the response + rep

Shock it again. Srsly.

If I touch one of those small plasma globe things, and while touching it, I touch my touchpad, my touchpad dies, the driver even crashes. If I repeat what I did to kill it, it comes back. It's the weirdest thing but it worked, lol.
