Question about Computers & Internet
When placing the red tab in place, control panel lights up, but when you press any touch controls, there is no response. Took the panel cover off to see if anything obvious shows up, but no luck. I don't understand HOW the touch panel works, as there is no wires to the different pads.
Try uninstalling your display drivers and let windows reinstall them for you...

First, ensure that the button that enables/disables the touchpad is not deactivated if your unit has one.
If the keyboard still works, and you can navigate past your log-in password and enter your windows environment, here is a quick way to check and ensure your laptop still has the correct software driver for your touchpad mouse.
1: Press and hold your windows key, and press the R key.
2: This will open a run command prompt. Type "devmgmt.msc"
3: This will bring up your device manager. It contains all of the software drivers of your unit. If your mouse has a missing driver, it should boldly stand out from the list as an expended menu, within either your mouse drivers, or unknown drivers. You should see a yellow asterisk or exclamation mark next to the damaged or missing driver.
4: If the driver is missing, you can often re-download it from the manufacturers website and have the computer automatically re-install it once you have the driver saved onto your computer.
This solution is only for a single scenario though. Why your driver would have gone missing should it in fact be missing or damaged would still be questionable. It is possible that another program, such as a malicious spyware or virus, could have modified or deleted it. If that were the case, simply re-installing it would not erase the software that is causing damage from your machine.
This is only a software related fix. If it is hardware related, such as the touchpad hardware itself is defective or damaged, then it would need to be replaced by a certified technician, most likely at a service center. I would recommend taking it to your nearest Best Buy and having a Geeksquad agent inspect it, test a usb or ps2 mouse with it, and give you a better idea of which of the two possibilities (hardware or software) the fault is really being caused by.
Hope that helps.

If you look at your touchpad, you will notice a small elongated button, right above it. When you push the button, it will lock the touchpad. However, it will lock it entirely, until you unlock it. You will not be able to move the cursor or click on anything. I don't think HPs have the ability to "partially" lock the touchpad. At least, I was never told anything about it while I was working for them.

You should have a "FN" key on the keyboard and one of the "F" keys should have a symbol that looks like the touch-pad, hold FN while using this key should disable it, failing this in control panel, then mouse and pointers, you should have touchpad setting there should be a disable button/radius.

O have a eee notebook. An antivirus programme attached it self to my system, asking me to purchase. I tried to get rid of it with no success. I turned off the notebook, re started pressing f 8. Tried running it in safe mode, the whole thing freezes once this is done. Everyother option on the f 8 menu, gets no response. Any ideas.

you can solved this problem by following these: 1. Find the icon of your pointing device in the taskbar (mine is synaptics pointing device) 2. point to the icon and right-click on it. 3. check if "Tap To Click" option is checked. 4. if not, then click on "tap to click" option so that it will be checked. 5. try now to double click using the touch pad...and you will be okey now.
