Hi mommy2india,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

Annoyed when you are typing a document and accidentally the palm of your hand brushes the touchpad, changing the position of the cursor in your document or accidentally clicking on an option?

Try to install TOUCHFREEZE. Touchfreeze is a simple utility for Windows that solves this problem. It automatically disables touchpad while you are typing text.


Hope that solves the problem. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

Yes, Compaq CQ42 use Synaptics Touchpad. In order to enable on/off touchpad button in your laptop, download and install the Synaptics driver first. You can get it from here:

Make sure you choose the correct one for your operating system.

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

Any way to turn off touchpad when typing ,etc

It is a common annoyances with netbooks and laptops which lack the disable touchpad button. Most blogs out there are covering a single method to disable the touchpad, i.e, go to Control Panel > Mouse Properties and then disable the touchpad from there.

The above method is not suitable for those who need to disable the touchpad frequently for short periods of time. Who in his/her right mind would navigate back and forth just to enable/disable touchpad? This could be quite a hectic process.
TouchFreeze is a brilliant little app that solves this problem. It disables the touchpad temporarily the moment a keystroke is pressed. In layman's term, it disables the touchpad automatically when you are typing and enables it back when the typing is stopped.
It will sit silently in the system tray without disturbing any of your work. Just start typing and don't worry about the touchpad any more.

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...

How can disable touchpad of my COMPAQ Presario CQ42 laptop


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.
