Question about HP Computers & Internet
Hi there...I've only had my HP dv71247cl for a week, but from day one I have noticed the mousepad is very ''skippy''. I have used laptops for years, and realize that sometimes you can touch the pad with another finger without realizing it which causes the cursor to sort of skip to another position. This is what is happening, but I am sure I am not touching the pad with more than one fingertip. Is there a way to calibrate the mouse?

I have been having the same problem for some time now with my Acer laptop and windows vista.
What worked for me was changing a Mouse setting in the Control Panel.
Go to Control Panel -> Mouse. Then go to the "Tapping" tab and make sure that the "Tap off when typing" box is Checked

Here is what I did to get the touchpad to start working again. My laptop is Gateway and a couple years old, running Windows Vista.
1. Start>Control Panel
2. Double-click on Mouse icon (or button, depending on how you're systems set up).
3. When a the Mouse Properties window pops up, choose the Device Settings tab.
4. Click on the Settings... button.
5. A new window pops up and on the right side there is a list of options - choose Tapping.
6. Once clicked, there is a check box that allows you to Enable Tapping.
7. Click OK to close out your windows and the tapping option should be enabled on your touchpad.
Hopefully this helps.
