Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD ProBook 4320s C Notebook

3 Answers

How do you disable the mousepad on a HP Probook 4320s. I use a regular mouse and the mousepad on the laptop is very sensitive and causes the cursor to "jump around" and it is very annoying. I have tried all the solutions I have found and none work. major design flaw that it is this difficult to disable.

There should be an off indicator in the upper left of the touchpad. If you double click in this area, it will turn the touchpad off. You can confirm that it is off because a light will come on. If this doesn't or hasn't worked, go into your device manager and disable it from there.
Hopefully you have the drivers installed for the touchpad. You can find them here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=4145546&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=4145545
Good luck.

how do you disable the - postexodus.png
If your trackpad looks something like this, press the button just above the mousepad area. This will disable the pad. To re-enable, simply press it again.
If it does not have a button, please let me know and I will provide additional steps.

How do you stop the cursor from jumping on an elitebook folio 9470m


go to control panel / mouse to open the mouse properties window. along the top of the window should be several tabs. select the tab for touchpad or maybe advanced properties. this tab allows you to adjust the touch sensitivity of the mousepad, momentum, and other properties. adjusting to make it less sensitive may reduce the tendency of the cursor to jump or move on its own. failing that, go for an external mouse!

Hi, i hav a probook 4510s laptop & i cant get the mouse pad to work... when the lappy is starting up, in the left hand top corner is says - no mouse detected. please help!


If this is a recent occurance, shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, push the on/off button and do a System Restore to a date before this problem. Perhaps the TouchPad driver is in error. You can try a external USB mouse to troubleshoot the problem in Device Manager to verify the driver or device isn't in error. I think HP TouchPad software is Synaptics Pointing Device, check your your Tray Notification Area for the icon, right click, select Pointing Device Properties. Or Control Panel, select Mouse.

Why is my keyboard so sensitive?


lol.. Its a weird problem until you're realize whats going on... While you're typing you're brushing against the touchpad, your onboard mouse.. if it is a problem just go into your device manager and disable it.. make sure you have an external mouse though.

Mouse is stuck on my probook 4320s. I tried pressing fn + f9, it did not work


Hi,
You might have disabled the touchpad accidentally. If the touchpad is disabled it is indicated by a yellow LED on upper left corner of the touchpad and when the TouchPad is active, the light is off.
To turn the TouchPad on, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator (the yellow LED).

When i am typing my cursor some times jumps to another line and some parts of my typing was deleted and i have to back again. it is nervous problem for me.


That happens when your hands or thumb are too close to the cursor pad. Due to your cursors pad high sensitivity will cause your pointer to move or delete entire paragraphs. To fix this problem by a mini-mouse connect it to your laptop and disable your cursor pad usually there is a button near by to disable it on most Dell and HP laptops.

Cursor runs all over the screen w/o moving hp wireless mouse


Your mouse could be defective, but let's try a few things first. Try to remove any wireless devices close to it (i.e. wireless router)or try to plug it in a new USB port. Last thing try to use a very dark mousepad. The laser respond to reflection so any white on a mousepad combined with some sun light could result in a free for all mouse pointer.
