Hi experts,

  I have Windows 8 (OEM) installed on my Toshiba C850. Suddenly the touch pad stop working. I uninstalled / installed the driver but that doesn't fix the problem. Any help will be highly appreciated.

check for a physical button that may have been accidentally pressed that could have disabled it

is it in device manager?

Try FN+F5. I believe that toggles the enable/disable touchpad.
