Compaq Presario CQ50 - touchpad problems

I am having problems with my Compaq's touch pad. Everytime I type an email or any Document; letters begin typing wherever the cursor is. Which means I have to go back delete and then re-type. It happens every two mins and it is really starting to bother me! I am even very careful not to put my wrist or hands on the touchpad. Do you know how I could resolve this issue? I just got this laptop last November. Please help!

Thanks,

Rushna

    I have the same problem, which happens even when the touchpad is deactivated. It's usually when I am typing an email or a word document, the pointer will jump around and sometimes click on a separate part of the screen.
    It's quite annoying!

A simple but temporary solution would be to use an external mouse. Logitech sells several affordable and very nice wireless mice. Then you could disable the touchpad. I find them more trouble then their worth anyway and by using an external mouse you'll most definitely increase your productivity. :)

Cant turn off the touchpad on my compaq presario cq50 & it's driving me nuts. HELP!


Hi Madre - Looking at the manual I can understand your frustration.

To turn the touchpad on and off you have to use button #6 (see below). Most certainly not intuitive!

Touchpad not working on compaq cq50


Go here(http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html#Product) to drivers and support. My touch pad button turned white and orange, but the pad was still active either color. I downloaded the drivers and wow, how nice now not to end up typing somewhere in the middle of my paragraph.

My cursor jumps back to the beginning when i'm trying to type. i'm constantly having to backspace and correct and reset my cursor. any suggestions?


Disable your touchpad if you consistently have this problem.

When you are typing something, and you suddenly touch the touchpad (tapping this touchpad moves the cursor) then your cursor will suddenly change position which then mess up your typing.

If you don'r have an external mouse connected, better be careful not to touch the touchpad. If you have an external mouse, better disable this touchpad.

There is no touch pad device setting in my laptop in order to disable my touchpad but my touch pad is working


Most of the time the settings are either found in the control panel and then mouse or else in start > all programs> and control (sometimes Catalyst center) you can also right click the pointing device in the taskbar and in device settings it will allow you to disable it from here.

My laptop touchpad stopped working


this is probably a driver issue if you are lucky other wise the touch pad must have become faulty

if its a driver issue go to this site
http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers
and download the drivers according to your operating system

install them and check if the touch pad starts working

if not then its probably a physical fault and needs replacing

Compaq Presario CQ50 touchpad won't work.


Click on Start menu, click Control Panel, under Hardware and Sounds click Mouse. Once the mouse window is open click the last tab that says Device Settings. Make sure the Synaptics TouchPad V7.0 is Enabled. If it's not, then enable it by clicking at enable. Also double check your speed on the mouse pad to make sure it's not set to slow.
