Hi irfanh94.

What version of Ubuntu are you running?

By any chance is it 11.10? Last time I used it there was a bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/oneiric/+source/gnome-settings-daemon/+bug/868400).

Try opening a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), and try this:

synclient Touchpadoff=0
The mouse movement should return immediately. If that doesn't work, this is the other recommended solution:

sudo killall -u lightdm syndaemon
synclient Touchpadoff=0

I hope that helps, and tell us how it goes.
Regards.
