Reinabling the Touchpad on a Presario 1700t

I purchased a used Presario 1700t laptop and the seller told me the
touchpad had been disabled. I figured he did it via software and
didn't think much about it. Got a great deal on the laptop. I since
want to reinable the touchpad, but the presario doesn't even see the
device. I assume it has been disabled internally via hardware.
However, it may be broken. I would like to use the touchpad again.
How can I find out if it has been broken or if he has been disabled?
If disabled, how can I reinable it?


BTW, I can't get ahold of the seller to ask directly.

All you can do is check the bios.  If there's no entry there, take it
apart and see if a cable was disconnected.
