Touch pad malfunctioning


Inorder to fix the Touchpad issue, try the hard reset steps:

Sometimes it is necessary to do a hard reset to erase all of the information in the temporary memory and regain functionality of your PC when it stops responding. For example, doing a hard reset is helpful if your keyboard quits responding, you cannot get your PC to come out of hibernation or sleep mode, or if a software program causes the PC to freeze.
The hard reset will not delete saved files on the hard drive.
Hard Reset Procedure:
1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery pack.
3. Hold the Power button down for 2 minutes.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and Battery.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

Also make sure that touchpad button is On. It will be just above the touchpad area where you can see the white led which shows that touchpad is on. If the led is in orange, touchpad is off.

If these steps does not work, update the BIOS version from HP website .

In rare case if the issue still persists, you need to restore the notebook to factory settings using Recovery Manager or recovery discs.

Before performing recovery, you need to backup all your data to external hard drive because it will erase the data from the hard drive:

Vista F11 procedure:
1. Reboot the notebook PC.
2. Press F11 when the HP logo displays.
3. When the Recovery Manager appears, click Next .
4. When prompted to use the Microsoft System Restore program, select No and click Next .
5. When prompted to use the System Recovery, select Yes and click Next .
6. Select the option to perform the recovery without backing up files and click Next .

The recovery process will return your PC to the factory image.

or

On some notebooks, the TouchPad can be turned off by pressing an on/off button located near the TouchPad. If the notebook does not have such an on/off button, you can still disable the TouchPad in its settings control panel.
NOTE: You will need to use an external mouse or some other pointing device to control the cursor when the TouchPad is disabled.
To disable the TouchPad:
Click Start , enter mouse in the search field, and then select the Mouse control panel program from the search results.
On the Device Settings tab of the Mouse Properties panel, click the Disable button to turn off the TouchPad.
The TouchPad can be re-enabled when needed.

My touchpad working too bad


If a Dell cursor is jumpy when you type then the touchcheck/palmcheck needs to be enabled in the touchpad driver advanced settings. if advanced functions like scroll do not work then try installing the touchpad driver (Basic functions are controlled by windows)
If the touchpad has a bad button, or it just non-responsive in a portion of the pad, then the palmrest assembly will need to be replaced.

How to unlock the pad from an up pavilion dm4-1165dx notebook?


Turning the TouchPad on and off

The TouchPad is turned on at the factory. When the TouchPad zone is active, the light is off.
To turn the TouchPad on and off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Our touchpad is not responding to tapping. It


Go into the BIOS (F2). Press Alt-P until you reach "Page 4 of 7". Under "Pointing Device" change the setting from "PS/2-Touchpad" to "PS/2". Reboot.
The touchpad and point stick will still function as long as there isn't a mouse plugged into the PS/2 port. If the mouse is plugged in, it will override the integrated devices.

Touchpad on acer aspire 5100 series is locked


plug in a usb mouse, go to control panel>system>harware>device manager and click on the + sign next to pointing devices. Right click the touchpad and click on uninstall. Reboot the laptop and unplug the usb mouse. This should pick up the touchpad as new hardware and reinstall it. Hopefully this will resolve the problem.

Touchpad doesn't respond


MY SOLUTION - Hello, I have Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop and at once my touchpad stopped working.

So i rebooted it several times but it still didn't work.

Then i detached the battery from the laptop and let it like that for 5 min. I attached the battery again and the touchpad was working again.

So, try the simplest solutions first before you start messing with complicating solutions.

Good luck !
