Turning the TouchPad on and off

To switch the TouchPad on and off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad on/off button.
NOTE: If the TouchPad light is on (amber), the TouchPad is off.

Hi! I have the solution! I know it's really late. double tap the light with your finger.
on the touch pad in the upper left corner, the light is glowing, when you double tap it it will lock the mouse pad. do it again and it un-locks it :)

My ph pavilion dv7 touch pad's light is off, what must I do to get it on again?


Looking at a picture of the laptop, it is like most HP computers. There is a button directly above the touch pad. This is your on/off button. Press it and wait a few seconds, and the light should turn blue.

My mouse is frozen on my hp dm4 and the orange light in the left hand corner is not on, nor will it turn on when double tapped


First thought is look at the top of the touch pad, there is a button. Push this button once and see if the mouse works. HP put this button on to deactivate the mouse if needed.

If this does not work, plug in an external mouse and see if it works, if not do a hard boot on the computer and try the mouse again.

Mouse pad is locked how do I unlock it?


hi
your track-pad mouse has a horizontal bar-shaped button above it with an orange light next to it, try pressing that button. The light should turn white and your mouse should begin working again.

Internal mouse will not move and lights are red/orange


this might be a problem with the mouse lock..
check ur mouse lock button just above the mouse pad.
if its locked, unlock it & try again.

if its not locked, then go to device manager via right clicking My Computer, properties
select mouse device & expand the tab
uninstall the mouse, dont worry it can be done without mouse.
now press the windows key from keyboard, and restart ur system via pressing Start key, +u, +r for windows Xp & for Windows Vista, press ALT+F4 then select restart.

After ur machine boots up, it will automatically detect the mouse & reinstall the required drivers. its done

if u like my post, pls rate me.. i really need some good ratings..
Thanks

Cannot tap touch pad


There is not a whole lot of information that you are giving us. There would be two reasons the touchpad does not work...one, there is a small button above the touchpad and if it is red (orange) the pad is off and you have to tap that button until the light turns blue. If the light is blue, then the tapping part of the pad has been turned off in mouse properties. Open control panel > mouse Properties > device settings > click on settings button and enable tapping. All other touchpad settings are in there to modify also.

hi there.

maybe your mouse is not comaptibel with the system of your laptop or you need the disk driver to install the mouse to work properly?
or your mouse is already damage and need to replace try to change it with a new one.

Screen dark/ mouse not working


Nelia, JUst fixed one with the same problem. The lid switch is faulty - I will take a technician about 20 mins to disconnect the switch and leave it disconnected.
