Small red light that disables mouse pad

I think you have the Touch Pad disabled. You can toggle the touch pad between enable and disable by a couple of ways depending on the manufacturer. On some at the very top of the touchpad there might be a button in the middle that you can press that toggles the touchpad. On others it might be a sequence of key strokes. For example you might have to Press and Hold the ALT or FN key then hit the corresponding key at the top of the keyboard that toggles it. Most times the correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square area that represents the touchpad.

I found this on your particular model on HPs site. Apparently there is a button or area on the touchpad that is in the upper left hand corner of the touch pad that toggles it on or off.

(1) TouchPad light if Amber: The TouchPad is off.
otherwise The TouchPad is on.
(2) TouchPad on/off button Turns the TouchPad on and off. Quickly double-tap the
TouchPad on/off button to turn the TouchPad on and off.

Here is a link to the document. When it opens up click the Maintenance and Service Guide. It will show you a picture of the Touchpad layout.

Have puchased. a acer wireless optical mouse how do I change over from the present mouse pad?

Theres nothing you need to do much, just plug in the wireless transmitter drive into the usb port, then download driver if one is required. Press the link button, usually a small button located under the wireless mouse.. then you should be good to go. You can disable the mouse pad, usually there is a button or a fn key to disable the mouse pad.

My mouse causes me to have to gets in the retype all the time cause it goes back up in my sentence or highlights my words blue

This is a very common issue with mouse pads build into laptops computer and can be avoid by moving your hands away from the mouse pad (meaning to open more) during the typing process. You might also want to try to disable temporarily the mouse pad by pressing the mouse button sometimes located on top of your mouse cell or pad or, by pressing FN key along with "F's" key(from F2 to F12). There should be a pad with a hand meaning to either disabling or enabling your mouse pointer.

Finally, try to use and external mouse.

Good Luck!!

Unable to use touch pad....rt clk and slide key

If the laptop is that new, the problem is probably the touch pad "disable" button. Look for a small button just above or near the touch pad and make sure the touch pad is not turned off. If you cannot find the disable button, look in your user manual for the touch pad disable.
