The issue could be with the corrupted touchpad drivers.
I recommend you to uninstall and reinstall touchpad drivers.
Press Windows key and R key simultaenously.
Type devmgmt.msc in Run window and click on OK.
Expand Mice and other pointed devices.
Right click on your Touchpad Synaptics or Alps and select Uninstall.
Also Update your driver after reinstalling them.

If you are talking about the touch pad

You can turn off and on the touch pad by pressing the on/off switch which is located on the touchpad. see image:

When I tap on the touch pad on a HP Pavilion dv7 cursor jumps


The touchpad is installed on HP notebook PCs.
You can "tap" and "double tap" your touchpad with your finger, and interact with the operating system in exactly the same way as clicking and double clicking on your mouse.
When using touchpad on your notebook PC, the cursor may jump, flicker, or double-click by itself.

Follow the recommendations in that HP document, or "disable" the TouchPad, if you don't like what it does.

How do i turn off zoom function of synaptics touch pad Hp laptop


Are you talking about the two finger zoom by spreading your fingers apart on the touchpad to zoom out or pinching them together to zoom back in?
This works for Dell touch pads so below where it says ‘Dell touchpad’ it probably says HP touchpad?


· Goto your control panel
· Click on ‘Mouse’
· Click on the ‘Dell touchpad’ tab
· On the resultant popup screen, double click on the main touch pad region
· Click on the ‘gestures’ setting
· Uncheck the zoom
Good luck…Chris

Hp touch pad keeps clicking like crazy....


Hi,

Try the following steps...

1. First clean the touch pad with a dry cloth.

2. Disconnect the battery and the AC adapter and any other device that is connected to the NB and hold down the power button for 2 mins. This will drain the static.

3. Go to device manager and click on the + sign beside mice and other pointing devices, select synaptics / alps touch pad driver, right click on it and uninstall it. Now go to recovery manager > advance options > hardware driver installation > select the same driver and reinstall it.

This should fix it....

otherwise, go to hp.com/suppport and download the latest bios available.

you can also run a spyware scan if all the above steps do not work. go to www.filehippo.com and download antispyware program and run a scan.

Hope it helps..
Regards,
Anup
