thank you for your reply if resetting this cable does not fix the problem  then do you think the system  board need to be replaced ? I am trying not to replace the system board. on the service manual do you know  on what page  I can find that cable that you are describing ?

Sorry, I have no manual for this system. I suppose it's possible to integrate the touchpad with the system board, but it's not anything I've seen. As I said, I have no hands-on experience from your model. The cable (if present) is probably not difficult to spot, but you'd have to take the system apart, at least to a certain extent.

We use this model extensively   its a seperate card with a cable to the system board  
unless the connector on the motherboard is bad simply replace the  cable or touchpad itself will fix the issues.
