Look in the control panel in windows to see how the mouse & pointing devicesoptions are set. If that is a dead end goto HP's website or look into the users guide for more info

How do I unlock my cursor on my laptop when the yellow light on the mouse pad is not on?


Do you have a micro USB device plugged in. Some touch pads automatically disable if you plug in any type of USB mouse device. You can also go into the device manager and uninstall the pad (do not use the delete/remove drivers option), then reboot. Windows will reinstall the device, and sometimes that fixes issues. Or do like it do and use a wireless mouse. I hate those touch pads anyway. ;-)

Touch pad not working


Did it work for you before? what has happened since then?some laptops have a way to disable the touch pad so you won't accidentally move the cursor while typing. It may be a switch on the computer itself, or a LED in the corner of the touch pad, or it may be one of the Function keys (does any of them have a symbol of a mouse with a circle and one diagonal line indicating "no mouse") If so, push the fn key plus which ever function key has that symbol beside it.Some laptops automatically disable the touch pad if a USB mouse is plugged in.If none of these is the problem, you may not have a touch pad driver installed. Get a USB mouse to plus in until you get the driver installed. Go to the web page for the manufacturer for the laptop. Search for your model in the support section, and look for drivers. Download the appropriate driver for your touch pad and your version of Windows, and install it.Buying a USB mouse or a wireless mouse may be a valid solution no matter what the problem is if you like a real mouse.

IF you are using something that has a touch pad on it, chances are that you are hitting the pad while typing and the cursor jumps to the wrong spot and lays down letters. I have also see this happen with shortcuts too. Try covering the touchpad with cardboard and typing.

This has happened several times... so hopefully you can teach me what I am doing. I am in the middle of writing an email, my hand moves.... somewhere.... and the message is deleted. Sometimes it goes to...


What e-mail program are you using?
Try placing a piece of card or a thin book or similar item over the touch pad so it cannot be touched. Then try typing an e-mail. If the problem goes away then it is definately a problem with the touch pad. If the problem remains then there is some other problem, possibly the keyboard layout cause you to press the DELETE button by mistake.
If the touch pad is the problem then try setting the touch pad sensitivity to minimum. Plugging in a USB mouse DOES NOT disable the touch pad, so this will not help you if you accidentally brush the touch pad while typing.

Emachines laptop e525 mouse pad not working at all so cannot use everything else starting up as normal


Look at the middle cover (above the keyboard). there are two buttons that touch the power switch, the one to the left enables/disables the touchpad. If it shows an orange light it is disabled. Just press it, and be careful not to hit it when turning unit on.

Asus mousepad stopped working after windows vista update


1.) Try reloading the touch pad drivers, should be on the CD that came with it or check the Asus website for new ones.
2.) Have you accidently disabled it? There is a Fn key combination to do this. Try Fn+F9. Also, there is an option to automatically disable the mouse pad when a USB mouse is plugged in. And of course, you can disable it from the Device Manager.
3.) Try going into :: Control Panel, find "Mouse", select the "Device Settings" tab, select the touchpad and click the "Settings" button). Check the settings in the "Tapping" section.

Touch pad driver.


Uninstall the driver from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drive automatically. If this doesn't work, check the touch pad connection, they will sometimes work loose ar get a little dirt/corrosion build up. The connection is under the keyboard. At this point, if it's still not working, then it has failed and will need replaced.

Touchpad


You can go to the Control Panel (Select the start button and then either "Control Panel" or "Settings" and then "Control panel") and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Then you can select the "Device Select" tab and check the box marked "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present."

That is also where you can permantly disable the touch pad by simply selecting "Disable Device" and "Disable Button"

Hope that helps.
