    Here's what you need to do. First, install the driver from HP's support site at (I am, of course, assuming you have Windows XP on a Compaq N610C). Once the software is installed, click on the taskbar icon that looks like a big, Red O. Go to the tab "device settings" and switch to "Pointing Stick" in the dropdown menu box. Then press "disable" if that's what you want to do. If not, press "settings" to change advanced settings. If the mouse is not working at all, remove the screws on the bottom of the computer that have something that looks like a keyboard next to them. Then remove the keyboard and verify that the stick is connected.

The touchpad is locked


On some models there is a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles the touchpad on or off.

On other models you simply tap twice in the upper left hand portion of the touchpad to toggle it on or off.

And then there are some models that you use keystrokes to toggle the touchpad. Normally you would Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key near the bottom left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The key that toggles the touchpad will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

Below is what I found in your user manual on the touchpad. It looks like your touchpad is controlled by software and there is no button or keystrokes that control the toggling.

Customizing the Touch Pad and Track Stick You can use the Mouse Properties window to disable the touch pad and track stick or adjust their settings.
  1. Open the Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Mouse.

  2. In the Mouse Properties window:

    • Click the Device Select tab to disable the touch pad and track stick.

    • Click the Pointer tab to adjust touch pad and track stick settings.

  3. Click OK to save the settings and close the window.

Dell 1545...... How do you disable the touch pad.


If you double click on the touch pad icon in the task bar it will bring up the Dell Touchpad Settings. Then click "Device Select / Button Settings". There should be two tabs there. Make sure "Device Select" is selected, and at the bottom of this tab, there should be a check box that says "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present".

If you cannot find those settings, they may also be in the BIOS. Try pressing F2 while booting and look around in the BIOS for a similar option.

Dell 1525 touchpad not working


Hello,

ONE : It may have been turned off or misconfigured. You can verify that by following the procedure below.
1. Go to the control panel,
2. Click on the mouse icon.
3. Under tab Touch Pad ON/OFF click enable.
4. Then Click on the Advanced tab. Under this tab, you will see a button Advanced feature settings.
5. Click that button and explore the options offered to you.
If you just want the default setting, restore them by clicking the Default button.

Thre are a lot of configuration settings, under different tabs, and it will require going through all of them.

Two: Your using the terms (driver is up to date) makes me suspect that you might have updated to the wrong driver. In that case you may try to rollback thr driver to the last version.

1. Right click the My computer icon on the start menu, or the My computer icon on the desktop.
2. Click hardware tab.
3. Under Hardware tab click button Device Manager
4. Look for mice and pointing devices. Expand the tree by clicking the [+].
5. Select something similar to Alps pointing device and click on it. Several tabs appear.
6. Select Driver tab. Then click button Roll Back Driver and OK.

But if you have been updating driver several times, you may not get the original one.

Any case, if this does not work, follow the procedure in part two, but instead of clicking Roll Back Driver, click Uninstall and OK.
After that, return to the device manager, select the [Alps pointing device], then go to the tool bar of the device manager, under menu item Action, click Uninstall.
Note: Under Action menu, there is the Scan for hardware change submenu. You will have to click that option after you uninstall the driver, otherwise you will have to wait after a reboot for the changes to take effect.

Hope it helps

Madden NFL 07 instruction booklet


There are two optaions for you to find one, one of the simpler ones would be to find a video game store and ask if they have the booklet in stock and they should be able to give you one, or you can try e-bay, im sure there is something on there. I hope I have helped you in anyway.
