Hello,

it is possible that the touch pad is disabled. Check control panel to actually confirm.

Since your touch pad is not operating, you will need an external mouse to perform this task.

Here is what you have to do to check if the touch pad is disabled.

Turn on your laptop, 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 enable.

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

If the above doesn't solve the problem, try performing system. System restore can help to back date your computer to the time when the touch pad was working....

Go to Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > System restore. Read and follow instructions.....

If the two solutions does not work, please let me so that I can further help you.

Yours sincerely.

Elect_Comp.

I can not use my mouse pad to click or scroll please advice me.my hp laptop pavilion dv6


Make sure the trackpad isn't disabled. HP laptops have either a button with an orange light illuminated when disabled or a light in the touchpad itself. Click the button, and it will turn white, indicating it is enabled. If it has a light in the touchpad, double tap the light and it will re-enable the touchpad.

I cant get the touch pad and mouse to respond long enough to change settings and not sure where to go to do that.


If mouse stops working shortly after booting up, sounds like driver conflicts, reboot and enter Safe Mode (normally press F8 on startup, but key may vary between systems) Drivers can normally not conflict with eachother in Safe Mode, Next enter Device Manager through the control panel and find your tochpad or mouse drivers, typically they will be marked with a yellow warning triangle if they are improperly configured or conflicted, rightclick and select uninstall, scan for hardware changes and let it automatically reinstall the touchpad or mouse drivers.

If driver still not working, there may be old, hidden drivers, some systems may be able to show these by pressing view->show hidden drivers in the device manager, older systems typically windows XP will have to run cmd.exe and type in the following lines to show the 'ghost' drivers:
SET DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
DEVMGMT.MSC
this will start up device manager with added parameter, you must still enable 'show hidden devices'.

Note: it is pretty safe to uninstall drivers under the sections:
Keyboards
Mice and other pointing devices
Monitors
Network Adapters
Sound, Video and Game controllers
Storage Volumes
Universal Serial Bus controllers

However, understand the risks of uninstalling and editing system components, if you do not have a way to restore your system to factory settings, or reinstall your system completely, of if you have important information stored on the computer, you should thread extra carefull- hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

If u r talking about the Mouse pad on ur laptop, then i guess u should reinstall the driver of ur touch pad..
U can do so by going to Properties of my computer
Open device manager & select mouse
Now simply uninstall the device & restart your system..
if u cant restart it then simply press F5 inside ur device manager tab. It will show a pop up named, NEW HARDWARE FOUND.
Let it install it... Its ur mouse ( Touch Pad) & after it installs its driver, restart ur system

now check out whether it works or not..

Touch pad driver.


Uninstall the driver from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drive automatically. If this doesn't work, check the touch pad connection, they will sometimes work loose ar get a little dirt/corrosion build up. The connection is under the keyboard. At this point, if it's still not working, then it has failed and will need replaced.

Touchpad


This may be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the touch pad drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. The touch pad either works or it doesn't, there's no in between, so if this doesn't work, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the touch pad.

Sounds like a driver glitch, from the device manager, try uninstalling it, then do a hardware search, it will locate it and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't solve the issue, then the touch pad has failed and needs replacing.
