Compaq 730us touch pad not responding


Hi
To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop/desktop XP Home, XPPro:
Reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.

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!

I just bought Compaq Presario CQ42 which black in color (i don't know the model exactly). i have a problem with the touchpad. i want to lock it but i didn't find the button and i don't know how to lock or...


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.

A shortcut or way to disable touchpad preasario m2000


You could disable it in Device Manager, but that has the downside of leaving you in a lurch if you are ever without your external mouse.

The latest drivers from Synaptics include a feature called "HandCheck" that will guard against unintentional movement when you are typing and your palm or other broad part of the hand is in contact with the surface.
http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers (see the link for Features to get a full description).

But I saved the best for last. A little hotkey utility that does EXACTLY what you want: http://www.notouchpad.com/

There's a free trial, but it'll cost you $4.95 if you want to keep on using it.

Good Luck!
