That can be tricky, but I have done it taking a really small flat head precission screwdriver and going along the edges. Just be go slow and careful. Another option would be to just get a USB mouse to hook to your laptop.

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.

The right side of my touch pad control button has stopped working


Did you check the settings for the left and right buttons under the mouse properties. Normally the left should be set on Click and the right should be set on Shortcut. If it's set to NONE then it will be inoperable. Better yet you can click the Default tab for buttons. Otherwise, it sounds like your touch pad needs to be replaced. The immediate remedy to this is to just go purchase a USB mouse and voila, you'll have the ability to left and right click.

Tapping on gateway nv 53 trackpad not working


This just happened on my HP2730P. I always used the click on the touchpad, plus used the right click button at the bottom. Yesterday it just decided to stop working and went haywier...it started doing the selecting and dragging while I was moving the mouse around and my left click stopped working. Obviously my enable tap click was already on cuz I used it all the time.

My solution was disabling the buttons under the "buttons" tab. Then my mousepad tap started working again, I regained function in the scrollbar on the mousepad again, and if I need to right click I can use the point stick buttons right above the pad.

OR

Does it start working when you reboot? If so, try changing the "Touchpad Sensitivity" option :)

How to repair the left click button on HP Pavilion ZT1135


Hey,
I had the same problem. It is pretty easy to fix. You have one of two options to follow.
1) Push down moderately hard on the left mouse button. After 2 mins or so, and the cap should back on to the button on the bottom
2) if number 1 doesn't work get a needle or pin and lift the left mouse button off. Then just apply very little, not even a drop, maybe half of a drop to the button and apply the cap back on and push down.

Mouse touch-pad


Click Start > Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings (tab) > Settings (right hand side, immediately under the white box with your touch pad device listed)

Select "Tapping" on the left and make sure it is enabled.
If tapping was enabled, go to "Sensitivity" on the left and adjust the touch settings.

Thanks for using the FixYa forums!

How to set up mouse pad so it works with touch


Check in the control panel under mouse. There should be a setting to enable tapping. If there is a touch pad icon on the bottom right of the screen you can also right click on that and select options.
