Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
When a laptop gets on in years, like yours, touchpad problems can be a result of the tiny ribbon cable that plugs into an equally tiny recepticle on the motherboard (right under the keyboard) finally working itself to a partially disconected state.Or, the touchpad itself and its sensor are finally failing.
Depending on the Model (which you didn't enumerate), even an "I swear it works" used touchpad will be iffy and could only be found on eBay. I'm a very experienced laptop repair specialist and sometimes touchpads can take me 2 hours to replace. You have to take the laptop halfway or more apart just to get at it properly, then replacing a large number of screws and reconnecting a number of other plugs and tricky litte ribbon cables.
You really ought to consider using a small laptop laser mouse and disabling the touchpad in the Control Panel Mouse settings. And, be sure to back up your data as soon as possible. Unless you've recently installed a new hard drive, you might consider that hard drives really only have a life expectancy of 5 years and can physically crash with little or no warning.
And remember, don't shoot the messenger. :)
