Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
I think the mouse setting is set to left handed and the right clicker is the main clicker and the left is the context menu key. Knowing this, you should follow these steps.
1. Go to "Control Panel"
2. Click "Printers and Other Hardware"
3. Click "Mouse"
4. Go to the "Buttons" tab and switch the setting to right handed

depending on your laptop this will vary
If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.
To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.
Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.
Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.
The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option.
Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK
Right-click on a blank spot on your desktop. Scroll down, select "Personalize" and then choose "Mouse Pointer."
Click the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight your TouchPad in the "Devices" section. Hit the "Enable" button.
Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button.
Click the "Start" button in the lower-left corner of your computer.
Type "mouse" in the field above the button. Click "Mouse" in the list of items that appear.
Click the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight the touchpad item in the "Devices" list.
Click the "Enable" button. Click the "Apply" button and then the "OK" button.

Locate the function key on your keyboard (F1 through F12) that has an icon of a touchpad. This is often a rectangle with two smaller rectangles below it, representing the touchpad and its two buttons.
Press and hold the "Fn" key, usually found in the lower left area of your keyboard.
Press the touchpad function key and then release both keys. If this does not enable your touchpad, try holding the "Fn" key down and pressing the touchpad function key twice in a row.
