SOURCE: My touchpad will not respond when I tap it

On the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps!
Please rate me if i am helpful.
Thank you.

How do i reactivate the touchpad on my Elitebook 8570w?


you need to double tap the light in the top left of the touchpad and it will go out....if it still does not go out after you double tap it, you will probably need to install the "Synaptics Touchpad Driver" from the HP web site.
Here's the link, Drivers software, just make sure you put in the correct OS you are using, and if it is 32 or 64bit

Thanks hope this helps,

How can deactivate the pad?i dont want to click with a double touch...thanks


To turn the TouchPad on/off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator (the yellow LED) at the left top corner. If the touchpad is disabled it is indicated by a yellow LED on upper left corner of the touchpad and when the TouchPad is active, the light is off.
This would disable the touchpad completely. Also, if you wish to disable just the double-click through double-tap, you can do this by going to the mouse/touchpad options from the control panel.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Dont know how to switch my touchpad back on when it switches off without rebooting!!


This laptop has a special feature which allows you to double tap the top left hand side of the touch pad, and it will then enable, or disable the touchpad. If you see a orange light on the touchpad, then double tap the light, and it should enable the touchpad again. On a side note, you should be concerned with why the touch pad is disabling itself to begin with!

The TouchPad is turned on at the factory. When the TouchPad zone is active, the light is off.
To turn the TouchPad on and off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator.

How do you highlight with a touchpad


With most touchpads you hold down the left mouse button to select then move the cursor with the other hand by pressing a finger on the touchpad and dragging it. Be sure your touch pad is not disabled - usually a button near it with an indicator LED.

I've had the acer one for 2 weeks. While using it today, the single and double click functions of the touchpad stopped working. The touchpad still moves the arrow around the screen and the left and right...


Hello cskpuels,

It sounds like the touchpad is working ok but probably needs some setting(s) adjusted. The touchpad settings can be accessed through the windows control panel. But before going to the control panel it's useful to review the touchpad basics for single and double clicking. They are as follows:
•Tap once on the main touchpad for single click.
•Tap twice for double click.
•The lighter the touch, the better the response.
•Tapping harder will not increase the touchpad's responsiveness.

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)
*The Enter key may be used on the keyboard in place of touchpad clicking*

In the Control Panel, do the following:
•Select Mouse [Enter] (Brings up the touchpad properties sheet)
•Look at the Buttons tab in the touchpad properties sheet.
•Adjust the settings and test the touchpad until you get the response you desire.

Have a great day,

Touchpad stopped working arrow still works


sounds like you need to adjust the sensitivity, as you can customize this to prevent accidental double taps.

you should have some software to configure your touchpad, this will either be from the manufacturer or you can use the "mouse settings" in control panel.

How do I disable double-click on an HP Pavilion dv4 touchpad?


Hi there Dublin. I recently bought a HP laptop myself, and I believe I can help your situation, or at least I hope I can. Here's what you do: Access your Control Panel>Click Mouse>Click Device Settings>Click Settings> Click Tapping> Click Disable Tapping. That should do the trick. You are not disabling your touch-pad, just the double-clicking that is associated with it. Drove me nuts for about a day, 'til I figured it out..Hope it worked for your notebook.

How do you change from a single to double click on the pad of my laptop so that in a moving truck I am able to control the computer


I am not sure if you're asking about how to change the settings to make a single tap on the touchpad function like double click. You can go to control panel>mice or touchpad.

If you're just asking how to do double click on the touchpad, by default, it's set to tapping the touchpad twice. You can change change the speed settings in control panel too.

Most likely you have to double tap. Depending on the laptop make, sometimes double tapping isn't intergrated.
