you do not need to install any special software.

Here is what you have to do to turn off the mouse pad of your hp probook 4525s;

Turn on your hp probook 4525s, wait till it boots completely.

Click start,

Scroll to Control Panel select Control Panel.

Under control panel, (you will find a Mouse icon), click Mouse and a dialogue box will pop out.

On the dialogue box, click "Device settings".

Under device settings, you will find "Synaptics Touchpad..."

Highlight the "Synaptics Touchpad..." by clicking on it once, then click disable.

By now the mouse pad should be disabled. Apply the changes for it to take affect.

To enable follow the same procedure and click enable using an external USB mouse.

Yours sincerely.

How do I unlock my cursor on my laptop when the yellow light on the mouse pad is not on?

Do you have a micro USB device plugged in. Some touch pads automatically disable if you plug in any type of USB mouse device. You can also go into the device manager and uninstall the pad (do not use the delete/remove drivers option), then reboot. Windows will reinstall the device, and sometimes that fixes issues. Or do like it do and use a wireless mouse. I hate those touch pads anyway. ;-)

I have a HP Probook laptop and my mouse (touch pad) is locked & I don't know how to unlock it. I have tried turning it off and removing the battery.

Based on the User Guide :

Turning the TouchPad on and off

The TouchPad is turned on at the factory. When the TouchPad zone is active, the light is off.
To turn the TouchPad on and off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator.

the indicator is on the top left side of TouchPad zone.

Good Luck

working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
