www.nonags.com usually has loads of freeware progs, but without knowing EXACTLY what you want it for, it's hard to choose.

i want something that can see my touchpad, so i can check what it is to try and fix it.
windows is doing something during boot to disable and hide it.
it works fine when on diagnostic tests

So plug and pray doesn't work either? Or "find new hardware" ?

Nope.
 Nothing exists according to windows.
Yet it does if I go into diagnostic settings when on start up.
No option in BIOS to enable/disable.

I've tried everything

Do have an original installation disk? I have a few devices that are ignored unless I run the setup from CD.
