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...

SOURCE: how can disable touchpad of my COMPAQ Presario

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.

Hi Helen,
Check the color of the light for the touchpad.
If it is enabled, it should be blue in color.
If it is disabled, the color will be amber.

If the color is amber, you can enable the touchpad with the button just near to that light.

Hope that helps.

Let me know if you have further problems.

My laptop model is HP Compaq Presario CQ42. I cannot activate my web-camera. The bluetooth is also not working


1) Select your exact model of CQ42 (there are many of them) from this list: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=4121902 (and download all drivers)
2) If you can't find the drivers manually, download and install a free driver updater software, e.g. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/index.htm - let it scan and update all your missing drivers.

Generally for compaq there is lock for touch pad you can see a moving lock below or above the touch pad. If locked the tochpad button,touch pad not sensitive.So open the lock and now you can move pointer using touch pad. see this pic
