First of all, check in the Device Manager if you find any yellow ! marks indicating that the drivers are not properly installed or corrupted.
If you find any entries, try reinstalling those drivers by right clicking on the entries with yellow ! mark and selecting Update Drivers.
Additionally, try reinstalling the drivers for the Keyboard and Touchpad from within the Device Manager by following the steps listed below :
Please follow the steps to go to Device Manager :

Right Click on My Computer and select Properties in the list.
Now go to Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager button.
Device Manager window opens in a seperate window.
Now click on the [+] mark next to Keyboards to expand the tree.
In the list that appears, right click on Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard and select Uninstall.
Now, restart the computer once the uninstallation is completed so that the default keyboard drivers will be automatically reinstalled.
Now, go back to the Device Manager and click on the [+] mark next to Mice and other pointing devices and if you find any entry with Synaptics Touchpad pointing device, right click on it and select Uninstall and restart the Notebook.
Now, download the Touchpad Drivers from the Notebook for XP from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34473.exe

Copy and paste the link in the address bar of a new internet explorer window and press Enter.
Save the file in My Documents or Desktop and double click the file once it is saved.
This will install the Touchpad drivers in the Notebook.
Now, try removing the USB keyboard and mouse to use the Keyboard and Touchpad of the Notebook.
If you are still unable to use the Keyboard and Touchpad of the Notebook, probably, there are internally damaged....need to get them checked by technicians.

Toshiba touchpad doesnt respond after 2 minutes


This issue could be a few things. 1. Make sure your driver for the mouse and keyboard are updated. 2. The mouse pad may be going bad. 3. There may be an issue with the motherboard. I would recommend checking your driver first. Then replace the mouse pad. You can also pick up a wireless mouse and plug the usb that comes with it into a usb port if you are not comfortable tearing apart your laptop.

Dell 1420 the twoon touch pad don't respond and the usb ports don't respond so i cannot connect a mouse neither can use the touch pad buttons I am dead on the water help!


LOL, didn't you know windows 7 was just a tad bit better than vista? Why do you think microsoft will be coming out with windows 8 in the coming months by the fall of this year. They keep trying to get it right.

Go to Dell's site and see if there are Window's 7 drivers for your model. If not, try downloading and installing the Windows Vista drivers. Right now, you might not have a driver or a good driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers and the Chipset (which has the usb ports).

Touchpad will not work


Hello, seems like a problem with the touchpad, first disable and enable the touchpad with the button which is located at the top of the touchpad, the corresponding LED should change from blue to orange and vice versa. If this doesn't solve the issue, reinstall the driver for the touchpad, you can find this by searching for 'recovery manager' in the start bar. Next step is to select 'advance options' and choose reïnstall hardware driver, there should be an option called 'Synaptics touchpad driver' select and install. kr Gijs

Broken USB Port compaq presario v5000


The hardware USB ports are identical for both versions. Only the software and hardware controller are different.
I suggest you use a temperature controlled soldering iron with a fine tip for this job.
You need to dismantle the laptop completelt to remove the motherboard from the plastic case. Take a note of where the screws come from because they may be different lengths. Don't apply excessive pressure on the plastic case else it will break, start from one side and work around each side, the plastic case has catches to hold the halves together.
Start by rmoving the hard drive, CD/DVD drive, battery etc.

If you have got a usb mouse plug it into your computer then go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and go to pointing devices. Right click on the + sign next to keyboard and touchpad, click on uninstall. Then reboot your machine, take the usb mouse out. Windows will reload the correct drivers for the keyboard and touchpad as new hardware and your problem should be resolved.

I hope this helps

Touchpad doesn't respond


MY SOLUTION - Hello, I have Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop and at once my touchpad stopped working.

So i rebooted it several times but it still didn't work.

Then i detached the battery from the laptop and let it like that for 5 min. I attached the battery again and the touchpad was working again.

So, try the simplest solutions first before you start messing with complicating solutions.

Good luck !
