How do I unlock the touch pad on my HP mini


I'm not sure what you operating system is but I'd suggest you go to your Control Panel and look for Touch pad and look at the settings there, If there's no Touchpad listed have a look in the Mouse settings.

While I type, often the cursor moves to the poit where the mouse icon is locatde, as if the touchpad has been pressed.


yeah you have touch sensitivity set to high in the touch pad and your wrist is hitting the touch pad. go your touch pad settings in the control panel and turn it down til when your wrist brushes it, it doesn't move the mouse.

I want to deactivate my touch pad on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop. Please advise how


If you do not see a Touchpad icon in your systray(lower right), go to:

Start/Control Panel/System

On the left choose "Device Manager".

Select "Mice and other pointing devices" and highlight "Dell Touchpad"

Either right click and "Uninstall" or click the uninstall icon at the top.

Restart your machine and it will automatically update the driver from Dell which will put the Touchpad icon back in the system tray.

Click on this icon and go to "Device Select"

Check the "Disable Touchpad/Pointing stick when external USB mouse id present.

3. Right click the Mouse icon.
4. Under the Touchpad ON/OFF thumbnail, put a check mark in the disable option.
5. Use the same procedure to enable touchpad

Dell Inspiron 1501 Touchpad locked up


Check the system setup F2 at start, and ensure the touchpad is enabled, next try an external mouse, see if it works.
If and external mouse works, the touch pad has failed and a new palmrest is needed.

Touchpad and cursor keys quit working


I used to get this problem. It is VERY annoying as you must know. try pushing the windows icon button in the top right corner of your keyboard(thats where it is on my keyboard)then use your arrow keys to scroll up to control panel, select mouse by using arrow keys and then use the tab and arrow keys to open the mouse keypad pagetab and push enable and enter key to turn it on.
IF WHEN YOU DO THAT AND your in the touchpad properties but there is no 'enable' and it says no hardware detected, then go into the same mouse window from the control panel and go to the hardware tab and either try to update driver or use the trouble shoot button.

Hope this helped =]

Eratic movement of cursor using touch pad


Sounds like you have a touchpad malfunction. If its an older laptop, I would recommend replacing it. Not worth the hassle of trying to install a new touchpad...
