On most Compaq's of the CQ42 model type, there should be a little light on the top right hand corner of the touchpad, not much bigger than a pinhead. When the touchpad is active the light is out so you shouldn't see the lamp. Quickly double tap the area on the lamp and it should light up. This is an indication that the touchpad is now not active.

How do I disable my touchpad on my Compaq Presario CQ56?


In the top left hand corner of the touch pad there is a little white dot. Double tap that with your finger and it should light up orange and that means your touch pad is disabled, double tap again to enable it. Hope that helps!

I want to turn off the touchpad


HP and Compaq Presario laptop computers are made by the same company, so the hardware on certain models of each brand might be nearly identical. Many newer laptops, for example, use identical technology to control the touchpad, which in turn controls your mouse cursor. If you want to disable this touchpad use the software already installed on your PC.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Click the "Device Settings" tab. Click on the listing for the HP touchpad to highlight it. Click the "Disable" button to disable the HP touchpad on your Compaq Presario laptop computer.

I just bought Compaq Presario CQ42 which black in color (i don't know the model exactly). i have a problem with the touchpad. i want to lock it but i didn't find the button and i don't know how to lock or...


Underneath the Laptop is a Users Label marked Model it should give the FULL model No. - e.g. Presario CQ42-100 - HP made something like 150 different models for the Presario CQ42 !!! so you can see, I'm going to have to guess about this...
If your Touchpad has a black(?) dot in the top left corner - tap this once to turn the Touchpad off while you are typing.
Touch it again, to turn it back on.
Other Presarios' have a switch nearby to do this...
