Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook

Touchpad does not work 100%

On my HP Pavilion dv8000, the left click button on my pad does not work at all. I have to use the left one but it does get the job doe all the time. I can use the pad to position the cursor but only use the right key to click then scroll on the menu to either back the page or open a file. I even tried to change the mouse options by making the right click the primary on but unsuccessful. The right click does not allow that function.

You can "tap" on touchpad as you do with left click,
otherwise it needs new touchpad assembly.

I do not have an orange or blue light anywhere near my touchpad on hp pavilion dv8000


Click Start/Control Panel andlook for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sureyou don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on thebutton that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upperleft hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press andHold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of thekeyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key tohit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents thetouchpad.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.Get online and got towww.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support"(without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Lookfor downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system whenrequested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

Choose 'device manager'

Look downlist to find touchpad listing 'mice and other pointing devices'

Click 'disable'. Then 'enable'.

Try again with touch pad.

You may need to uninstall the driver and the reinstall.

Hp dv6000 touchpad - left button doesnt work - what do i do


Does the button actually click when you touch it? If it does not, if you cannot feel a "click" then the button underneath the plastic had collapsed and the actual button board underneath the touchpad area will have to be replaced. It is actually cheaper to just buy another palmrest with the touchpad assembly in place.
