If you can plug a USB mouse in for the meantime, it might help.
Otherwise you can use the Windows, TAb and arrow keys to navigate.
If you think the driver is actually installed and it's turned off:
Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings, then click on the touchpad in the list and click enable.

If you don't think it is installed, download Belarc advisor. It'll tell you everything you'll need, in order to download the correct driver for your laptop. But I suspect you will find the appropriate driver here:

Hope this helps

How to change the screen on a hp pavilion dv4-1465dx laptop

A) Remove all electrical sources; The AC adapter (Charger) and the Battery.

B) Obtain a multi-compartment container for the screws you will remove. There are screws which look alike, but aren't. You won't realize the mistake until you have the screw in halfway, it is then stuck, and CAN'T remove it. Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling all over.

You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch. Label each egg holder for what area the various screws came out of.

C) Suggest you buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge) They cost from $3 to $8. The area you are going into is relatively safe from static shock, as there are no hardware components that are nearby, and prone to Static shock, BUT, it never hurts to be safe.

Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components of a computer, (Laptop or Desktop)
You probably won't see it, or feel it.

Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source. I connect to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.

D) I don't find a Service and Maintenance Guide on HP Support, but the information from this link should do very nicely,


It's a dv5 series, but you'[ll find it crosses over to your dv4 series quite well.
