Lost touch pad use

Is there a function button that I may have "locked" the touchpad? We've looked and tried all the obvious connections but I have to use the pen if I want to use the machine at all?? I've been through all the start up properties, etc but just can't find where it may be off. Any ideas??

How touch pad that has been flashed over to android and at first it would not charge because I did not have the right charger now it will not charge at all and is taking me back to the flash cyanogen

Touchpads are really sensitive to the type of charger and cable that is required to charge them. I have had trouble charging mine in the past, but the best form of charger appears to be a touchstone.

It might me worthwhile getting a specific USB charger for the Touchpad that provides enough output. A normal phone charger does not have sufficient power.

Quote from another source:
If you have connected your HP Touchpad to the charger only to find that a charging symbol is perpetually displayed, you will probably need to reset the tablet.

This is done by holding the power and home buttons at the same time for around 15 seconds. During this time, the tablet should shut down, restart and then boot into the installed operating system - albeit with a very low charge.

Cannot move cursor by touchpad. Can't shut it down either, since I can't go to start menu.

Try the following: 1. Check if the on/off button on your touch pad is turned on. 2. Restart the computer by pressing ALT+F4 until you get a shut down screen and then using arrow keys to scroll to restart. 3. If still not working, try reinstalling your touch pad drivers from the disk you got with your computer (connect an external mouse to do so, if not introduced to keyboard shortcuts). Good luck and please rate if something helps.

Shut off touchpad

Most pc's use a program named symnaptics touch pad. Go to the control panel, select the mouse tab then mouse properties and device settings (select disable). Here you can disable the touch pad. I would recommend you have a usb mouse up and running prior to doing this procedure (saves tons of headache).
