Had this problem before, very annoying! On mine the idea was double tap to disable the track pad and then double tap again to activate it... In reality tapping rapidly in the area around the LED until the LED shut off seemed to work.
In short; double tap the LED to reactivate the track pad. If that doesn't work tap several times in quick succession until the LED turns off.
You probably have a Synaptics Touchpad. What you have to do is look for the Synaptics logo(it's like a white circle on a red background) in your status bar(lower right corner of the scree, neer the clock). Double click that icon. A window called Mouse properties appears. The last tab is Device settings that also has the Synaptics Icon. If you click it you should see a list of all Synaptics devices on your laptop. Since you only have one you will only have one item in the list. Double click that item and a new Properties window will open. You have a list on the left side of that window. Select tapping and make sure Enable tapping is Checked. That should be it.Good Luck!
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.
It will depend on what touch pad (and
related software) is installed on the particular computer, but you will find the tap option under the Control Panel. Open your control panel, select "Mouse" There will be a TAB in the mouse
properties called "touchpad" (surprise, surprise!) where you can toggle
Hope this helps. PS: if you DONT see the touchpad option - you will first need to install the drivers/software for your touchpad. Most HP touchpads are the Synaptics Touch Pads - Find the drivers here: --> Click here!
I have this same problem on my pavillion dv6. sent it to warranty repairs twice they have replaced the keyboard, touch pad and mother board, worked about a week after last repair which took two weeks. I am sending it back on feb 10 for more replace parts and see if it works. I searched the web and I have not found any solution and hp won't even acknowledge the problem althoughit it is not limited to the hp product. Reconfigureing and downloading drivers etc. has done nothing but waste time. I am using usb mouse with touch pad disabled for now even that acts strange with the touch pad enabled.
you need to download and install SYNAPTICS. The program can configure your system to disable your mouse tapping pad when you connect a USB mouse. Just download the compatible synaptics program for your Operating System, install it, and configure. You can get it HERE.
you can solved this problem by following these:
1. Find the icon of your pointing device in the taskbar (mine is synaptics pointing device)
2. point to the icon and right-click on it.
3. check if "Tap To Click" option is checked.
4. if not, then click on "tap to click" option so that it will be checked.
5. try now to double click using the touch pad...and you will be okey now.
