Hi. I have an HP Pavilion Dv4 1147cl Entertainment PC. Lately, I have been using the touchpad mouse, which has been working fine. I recently got a wireless USB mouse, which I started to use. Today, I realized that my touchpad mouse will not work, at all. I've tried uninstalling drivers, FN + F9 key, BIOS updates, all of what could seem to be the possible problem. I'm sure that all the settings are correct, and all the drivers are how they should be. Why isn't my touchpad working?

To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.
This process is different for each computer manufacturer. If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then attempt to use the touchpad after each one.
A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard. The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop. The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop. Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon. Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it. Please take time to rate me thumbs up
There is a led light for the touchpad just above the touchpad. If it is amber in colour tap the button ju8st next to the light. you will see that the light will change in blue. if it has changed then it has unlocked and the touchpad will work fine.
Try uninstalling the touchpad driver from the Device Manager, restart the Computer and reinstall the Touuchpad driver after connecting a wireless mouse.
If the issue persists then this indicates that the issue is with the Touchpad sensor and requires to get the Touchpad serviced.
1. Go to the "Control Panel" and double click on the "Mouse" item. 2.
Go through the tabs in the "Mouse Properties" window & find the tab
where you can set up your touchpad. This differs from laptop to another
since it is based on the touchpad's drivers. 3. On that tab, check & make sure that your touchpad is enabled. If it is not, then change the setting to enabled. 4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.
you cannot find a tab to set up your touchpad, then your touchpad
drivers might not be installed. In this case, you will need to install
I think I can help you. I need to know what kind of mouse driver you are using. To find out click on the control panel, click on mouse properties, click on device settings. Under devices it should show Enabled/Name/Port. Under Enabled it should say Yes. Under Name should give the name of the device being used and under Port it may or may not show anything. Ex. Yes /Synaptic TouchPad V7.2 / Port/2. If this is what yours shows, double click on the highlighted device and a menu will come up. From there you can reactivate your scrollbar. If yours does not show a device in the list, sometimes it will show where to go to download the device in the bottom righthand corner. EX:(www.synaptics.com) If not, you will have to find the name of your device. Hope this helps. Tim
