    That seems a bit extreme.  I'd rather not go that route.

    Double-check Bios MAIN tab for function key behavior option. Press Ctrl+S to see if it appears like as shown below for this model.




    It is set to media key like in the screenshot.

    Then change it from "media key" to "function key" behavior. Then press F10 to save settings and exit the BIOS menu. Then try FN+F7 again to turn touchpad on. If still no joy, shut down Windows normally. Turn it back on and try turning it on again with FN+F7.
