Just above the mousepad on the laptop is a very small hard to see button, pressing this will disable and enable the mousepad. if this doesn't work you can use the "fn" key and usually f5 to enable it. if that doesn't work you most likely need to install the drivers for the hardware.

If this is a recent occurance, shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, push the on/off button and do a System Restore to a date before this problem. Perhaps the TouchPad driver is in error. You can try a external USB mouse to troubleshoot the problem in Device Manager to verify the driver or device isn't in error. I think HP TouchPad software is Synaptics Pointing Device, check your your Tray Notification Area for the icon, right click, select Pointing Device Properties. Or Control Panel, select Mouse.

SOURCE: Hp probook 4510s power button blinking won't start

maybe out of power and the dc jack is broken take the battery out and if the light dose not flash then go chance its the dc jack.

if with out battery still blinks then there's a short on mother board and or video card is bad. but some times taking out that battery will reset the m/b and get it to work if you are lucky

SOURCE: How do I replace LCD Screen on HP Probook 4510s?


according to the S/N, this notebok has several options for the display with webcam
HP p/n 535851-001 or 535852-001, 535853-001, 535854-001, or 535856-001

you need to take the upper logic top cover , remoce the screws that hold down the keyboard. disconnect the webcam connections and the LCD invereter connectio. Remove the hinges that attach the LCD to the top cover, remove the bezel from around the LCD panel. There will be or mya not be some screws to remove to the LCD from assembly top cover.
this is basically it.

if you need more information, let me know -- i can get some other assembly isntructions for you if required. But let me know which LCD p/n it is you require.

HOORAY! Double click on the upper left hand corner of the mouse pad, the light comes On indicating that the mouse pad is OFF - and it works just like HP said it would two years ago. Knowing HP, who knows for how long it will work.
This works on Windows 7 - on other systems your milage may vary.

The mouse pad on my laptop has been automatically disabled and i cannot get it back

There should be a small button / On-off switch just above or beside the mouse pad which somehow has been turned into OFF mode which is why you are facing this issue.
Please switch On the button and you will be able to access the mouse pad.
