You just have to double tap on the little spot on the right top of the touchpad.
It will become orange. To reactivate it you have to do the same.

SOURCE: How do I disable double-click on an HP Pavilion dv4 touchpad?

Hi there Dublin. I recently bought a HP laptop myself, and I believe I can help your situation, or at least I hope I can. Here's what you do: Access your Control Panel>Click Mouse>Click Device Settings>Click Settings> Click Tapping> Click Disable Tapping. That should do the trick. You are not disabling your touch-pad, just the double-clicking that is associated with it. Drove me nuts for about a day, 'til I figured it out..Hope it worked for your notebook.

SOURCE: elitebook 6930 audio problem

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'. A 'System Restore' window will appear.Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next.Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.After reboot your problem should be resolved.
