Question about HP Compaq 6720s Notebook

No Right Click on mouse-pad

Touchpad and Left-click are fine.

I'm having to use an external source (stylus and tablet).

I've disabled and re-enabled mouse drivers (Synaptics), have checked connections on the intel chip, but can't seem to get into other parts of laptop to check.

Could it be that the two wires (one white, one black) that appear to connect to the mousepad could be faulty? Can they be replaced?

Many thanks
Emma

You will have to get a new touch-pad for this laptop, repairing laptop parts one self is pretty risky- or use a small external mini-usb mouse.
(cheaper option)
make sure your laptop supports usb2.0.
u may think about getting an external usb hub to enlarge the number of usb ports available, when doing so get one with external power supply, else you'll face problems as the internal power supply cannot support more than the usb-ports your laptop originally holds. i had one without and use with a pc only.

good luck

Dell inspiron n5030....touchpad not working..not showing in device man..have d/l drivers,incl synaptics.mouse device settings box emtpy.enable/disable greyed out.


Are you certain that the touchpad wasn't disabled accidentally from the Fn key? There are secondary features assigned to each of the Function (F1-F12) keys, usually in BLUE. On of them is to disable/enable the touchpad (toggle-type function, do it one time to disable, the next to enable). You press and hold the "Fn" key (next to the Windows key at bottom let of keyboard, then press the associated Function Key.

Touchpad scroll function not working


Hello,

The touch pad (acer) sometimes get disabled. To enable your touchpad, restarting your computer may help. However, if it doesn't then do the following steps:

  • Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Settings
  • Click Enable (or Disable to disable)

11_15_2012_3_48_14_am.png

Notes:
  • On some models, there is a keyboard shortcut to activate or deactivate the touchpad. Press FN + F7
  • You can click "Reset device" if neither of those solutions work
  • The official website provides synaptics drivers and software needed to run your TouchPad
NOTE: If you want to make sure that all your drivers are up to date. You can download RadarSync to your computer. This is a must for your operating system. I highly recommend this because it can update your driver including your touchpad's driver. You don't need to go to synaptics or any website anymore because RadarSync will do it for you. With just a click of a mouse, then your computer will be taken care of.


If you have the same problem, right after doing the above steps please let me know. I would be very glad to help you out.


Thank you for using fixya.com. Have a nice day ahead!

Hello,

you do not need to install any special software.

Click start,

Scroll to Control Panel select Control Panel.

Under control panel, (you will find a Mouse icon), click Mouse and a dialogue box will pop out.

On the dialogue box, click "Device settings".

Under device settings, you will find "Synaptics Touchpad..."

Highlight the "Synaptics Touchpad..." by clicking on it once, then click disable.

By now the mouse pad should be disabled. Apply the changes for it to take affect.

To enable follow the same procedure and click enable using an external USB mouse.

Yours sincerely.

My touchpad left click wont work but left click and when i move it it works . i even installed Synaptics - input -synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad From windows update still the left click wont work...


I have this same problem on my pavillion dv6. sent it to warranty repairs twice they have replaced the keyboard, touch pad and mother board, worked about a week after last repair which took two weeks. I am sending it back on feb 10 for more replace parts and see if it works. I searched the web and I have not found any solution and hp won't even acknowledge the problem althoughit it is not limited to the hp product. Reconfigureing and downloading drivers etc. has done nothing but waste time. I am using usb mouse with touch pad disabled for now even that acts strange with the touch pad enabled.

I can not disable touchpad of INSPIRON 1545 of DELL Computers There is no option for disabling touch pad in the MOUSE option of Control Panel


Go to the Control Panel. Under the 'Hardware and Sound' options, click 'Mouse'immortal4u.png

Since you have a Dell laptop, you'll have a special tab called 'Dell touchpad' in the window that pops up. Click on the touchpad picture in the window.

immortal4u_0.png
In the new window that appears, click 'Device Select'
immortal4u_1.png

Click on the 'Disable' radio button to disable the touchpad completely. If you want to disable the touchpad of your Dell laptop only when an external device like a mouse is attached, check the last option that says 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present'

immortal4u_2.png

That's it. You've disabled your laptop's touchpad for good. If you don't find an option to manage your touchpad in Mouse settings, you have to install Synaptics drivers from here. Similar options can be found in other laptops as well.

Good luck ! if your problem is solved don't forget to rate

I cant get my internal mouse to work anymore. Is there setting that would turn on or off the mouse? My mom always used a plug adn play mouse and now the internal mouse dont work? can you help me


On my acer, holding the function key and pressing F7 will disable the internal mouse. If you repeat the process it will reenable the mouse. This is likely your problem. It may not be the F7 key but the Function keys should have little pictures, and one should indicate it represents the touchpad. If this doesn't work it could be a driver issue. Personally I prefer an external mouse.

Touchpad will not work


Hello, seems like a problem with the touchpad, first disable and enable the touchpad with the button which is located at the top of the touchpad, the corresponding LED should change from blue to orange and vice versa. If this doesn't solve the issue, reinstall the driver for the touchpad, you can find this by searching for 'recovery manager' in the start bar. Next step is to select 'advance options' and choose reïnstall hardware driver, there should be an option called 'Synaptics touchpad driver' select and install. kr Gijs
