Check the settings in the bios to enable the track ball. Most of the time that is where it is enabled or disabled. You can also check Dell's support website for additional software that may allow you to configure additional settings (similar to IBM/Lenovo Thinkpads).

I don't recall the specific key to press to get into the bios, its either F1, F2, F10. You need to do this from a cold start when the laptop is off. Press the power button and when you see the Dell logo, look for the bios settings key to press or press one of them that I suggested. Sometimes this may go by quick so you need to be quick about it as well.

Hope this helps!

This is the general info for any laptop, specific models have other options. Open the Mouse Properties window via Control Panel - Mouse, select the Device Settings tab, and click the Disable button. You may re-enable the touchpad from here at any point.

The touchpad is locked

On some models there is a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles the touchpad on or off.

On other models you simply tap twice in the upper left hand portion of the touchpad to toggle it on or off.

And then there are some models that you use keystrokes to toggle the touchpad. Normally you would Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key near the bottom left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The key that toggles the touchpad will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

Below is what I found in your user manual on the touchpad. It looks like your touchpad is controlled by software and there is no button or keystrokes that control the toggling.

Customizing the Touch Pad and Track Stick You can use the Mouse Properties window to disable the touch pad and track stick or adjust their settings.
  1. Open the Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Mouse.

  2. In the Mouse Properties window:

    • Click the Device Select tab to disable the touch pad and track stick.

    • Click the Pointer tab to adjust touch pad and track stick settings.

  3. Click OK to save the settings and close the window.

My hp 4520s probook's mouse pad got locked accidentally, and it's not unlocking by double tapping on the light button on the mouse pad. please help me with this asap.

First, try double tapping the light again. You may have just mis-tapped.

Next try restarting the laptop. Certain laptops re-enable the track pad on restart so long as a USB mouse isn't connected.

If that fails, navigate to the Mouse Settings on your PC and re-enable it there. If you have a USB mouse you can use that. If not, you can use the keyboard. Windows Key will launch the Start Menu, arrow keys can highlight options, Enter will click on them, Control+Tab and Control+Shift+Tab will switch tabs (in a window that has tabs).

In Windows XP and 7 (and probably Vista), Mouse Settings is located at Control Panel > Mouse > Settings.

When my new hp mouse pad locks, how do i unlock it without restarting the computer?

There should be a button above the pad or work your way using the keybord to mouse properties and go to the page that has the name of your track pad and select enable.

My computer comes on opens windows all looks ok as soon as i touch the cursor, nothing responds,

Make sure that the track-pad (mouse-pad) is not disabled. There should be a button located above the track-pad that allows you to disable or enable the track-pad. If not, I would use a USB mouse and then go into the Control Panel, mouse and change settings there to enable the track-pad.

The curser is stuck in the middle of the screen. I move my finger over the pad and it will not move. I have restarted 3 times to no avail.

Is there a button near the trackpad that might be lit up in red or another color? On some laptops, there is an option to turn off the trackpad by pushing a button. Commonly, its right above it. An example is in this picture in the upper right corner:
If there is no button, try connecting a USB mouse and see if you can make it work that way. If so, you may have a hardware or driver issue. You can download drivers from the manufactures site.
