Hi Madre - Looking at the manual I can understand your frustration.

To turn the touchpad on and off you have to use button #6 (see below). Most certainly not intuitive!

Try updates from HP - Software and driver downloads "Synaptics" . This program will give you the features needed to disable or adjust the touch pad features.

Synaptics Link:
http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers

After installation you can access the program through Start, Control Panel, and Mouse. On the top of the active mouse window to the right select the tab "Device Settings" (the one with the Synaptics symbol next to it). Select the tab labeled Settings - you should have a column of options to expand on the left. On select "Tapping" (do not expand it) you should have the ability to uncheck the box for enable tapping. this should correct the problem. There are many options with the Synaptics software to enhance your mouse and touchpad........

If you have searched for the driver and it is still not working then it is most likely a hardware failure and will need to be replaced. I recommend contacting compaq.

Compaq cq50 touchpad isnt working, and the keyboard isnt working either when using the usb mouse, and it is all running very slowly.


You have a device conflict. Laptops do not like USB mice.
To fix this you will need the hands-on help of an expert, or
assistance from Compaq (good luck) or the mouse maker.

Compaq Presario CQ50 + over sensitive touch pad


Try the mouse settings in the control panel, also try uninstall any touchpad software and remove any touchpad software from running when the pc boots.
To do this either type msconfig into the run/search box or a program like cc cleaner under tools/startup

Compaq Presario CQ50 touchpad won't work.


Click on Start menu, click Control Panel, under Hardware and Sounds click Mouse. Once the mouse window is open click the last tab that says Device Settings. Make sure the Synaptics TouchPad V7.0 is Enabled. If it's not, then enable it by clicking at enable. Also double check your speed on the mouse pad to make sure it's not set to slow.

Compaq Presario CQ50 - touchpad problems


A simple but temporary solution would be to use an external mouse. Logitech sells several affordable and very nice wireless mice. Then you could disable the touchpad. I find them more trouble then their worth anyway and by using an external mouse you'll most definitely increase your productivity. :)
