Re: touch pad not working on my ipaq hx4700
Open the device and check the componets are not shorting out, when you droped it, with that much force you may of bent the leads inside or broken, if it bent you can fix it but you broke it than it is time to buy a new one, check the power source for that switch make sure it is okay.
you may of knocked something out of alinement.

There is no button to turn off or to disable the mouse function.. But you can set or disable your mouse by configuring to your Device Manager. But take not, before you disable your mouse, you should know how to use shortcut keys and use only keyboard to navigate your files..
1 . Look for Fn function key - Most laptops have this special key Fn that is next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It should have a blue or green color, easy to find.
2 . Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touch pad, which is to control the touch pad of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.
3 . Now hold down the Fn key and the F10 key to enable the touch pad, in this example, the Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it
4 . If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touch pad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touch pad driver is installed and working properly.
I had this exact same problem and believe me, I flipped out too. I took mine into Best Buy though because it was only 5 days old and the guy from the Geek Squad showed me that there are the touch buttons above the keyboard and the one with the square box with the finger pointing to it actually locks the touchpad just so if you are using another mouse, it will not interfere. So try hitting that button and see if that works.
check it on some other pc ... if the problem is still the same then u need an replacement, if out of warranty , then open the mouse, remove the button and get a new one of the same kind and fix it... u need a solder iron to do that bro remember :)
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.
1. Open the SetPointTM software and assign a keystroke to the button you want to use. For further details about this procedure, launch the Help Center within SetPoint and view the mouse topic To change the task assigned to a button.
2. Click the Windows® Start button, locate the function or application you want to launch and right-click it to display a menu. (If the function or application you want to launch is not available from the Windows Start menu, use Windows Explorer to locate it and then right-click it.)
3. Select Properties.
4. In the Shortcut tab, enter a Shortcut key that is the same as the keystroke you chose at step 1.
5. Click OK.
