    by mousepad I assume you mean the trackpad?

    If you could clarify that it would help others to be sure of your question.

    I'm kinda 100% certain he meant trackpad lol. I've yet to hear of a mousepad that stopped working due to upgrading the hard drive in the computer lol.

    Don't you have to disconnect the trackpad cable in order to remove the keyboard cover to get to the hard drive?

    Maybe you forgot to reconnect it.
