"sticky" mouse on compaq laptop

I am using a compaq presario laptop with an inbuilt touchpad and an inbuilt left and right mouse.the problem is that the left mouse is "sticky".as i move about the touchpad,not touching the left mouse, the page can change to the link which is below the pointer.other times,parts of the line are suddenly highlited in black,again without touching the left mouse.the left mouse is phsically a bit loose,compared with the right mouse.is there some way it can easily be tightened? what can i do? thanking you in advance.

    i'm on a fixed income and i'm buying a v2000 and you can see in the picture that is worn down and the seller said sometimes it doesn't work right. What must i do to put a new touchpad in it ?



    THANKS

    improved solution.go to control panel then mouse>device settings>tapping> then disable tapping by unticking "enable tapping" then click ok. previous solution of decreasing touchpad sensitivity made the cursor hard to move about.this is a problem of high humidity levels.

    I have the same problem with v2000 but when i go to control panel, mouse, then theres no device setting!!  any help would be appreciated.  thanks

    My button also has the same problem. It feels "mushy" to the touch instead of clicking like it should. I haven't had any liquid or food around the keyboard, so I can't think of a reason for this. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

    Thanks so much.

Unless your left mouse button has been severely damaged, it is unlikely that a loose button is the cause of your problem. More likely, it is your touchpad. Chances are your touchpad is set to click when tapped. Oversensitive touchpads can click randomly when you're dragging your finger across the touchpad.

To test this, position your cursor over a link (or other button) but don't press the left mouse button. Instead, lightly tap the touchpad itself. If the link or button is clicked, go to your Control Panel and adjust the Mouse options so your touchpad no longer clicks when tapped. It's usually a setting titled "tap to click" or something along those lines.

Regards,
Javabytes

I want to turn off the touchpad


HP and Compaq Presario laptop computers are made by the same company, so the hardware on certain models of each brand might be nearly identical. Many newer laptops, for example, use identical technology to control the touchpad, which in turn controls your mouse cursor. If you want to disable this touchpad use the software already installed on your PC.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Click the "Device Settings" tab. Click on the listing for the HP touchpad to highlight it. Click the "Disable" button to disable the HP touchpad on your Compaq Presario laptop computer.

My compaq presario v2000 built in mouse is not moving while the external mouse is working what do I do to fix this problem


alright, so you're saying that the touchpad ceases to function when you have the external plugged in? that is probably normal behavior set in the mouse settings in control panel, if you're saying it's not working at all there should be a button to the right of the touchpad that is used to enable and disable that device.

Compaq presario cq60 labtop- the touchpad mouse goes crazy!


os? vista, 7, x64??? ok lets get to a base point. you had a different mouse, is it still installed? Is the dongle still plugged in? are the drivers loaded? uninstall drivers in control panel. remove all traces of every other mouse, pad, pointers, etc from your cq60. in device manager you should show Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad under MICE AND OTHER POINTING DEVICES. if after reboot the touchpad is still not working then right clock the Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad in the device manager and select uninstall. reboot. let me know when you get to that point.

if your left click is showing as a right click then it is the mouse setting error

Mouse Buttons on Compaq Presario V3000 Don't Work


Might need to take it apart and clean them. Did you spill something in there? Also make sure your mouse properties are set right click speed etc) in Control Panel. Can you double-tap the touchpad to make selections.

Disable Touchpad Clicking


Hiya, At the bottom right of the screen, by the clock, you should see an icon for the touchpad.....

Hint : Hover the mouse over the icons and wait for the "Pop-Up" Display to see what they do if your not sure.

When you find the one for the touchpad, simply right click it and scroll down to the option that says "Tap To Click" and left click it so that there is NO TICK next to it..........

........ This will DISABLE all tap click options and leave the touchpad as a touchpad and the buttons as buttons...........

Hope This Helps, Kind Regards,

Me :D
