Turning off the touchpad Presario v4000

I have yet to find a solution to turning off the touch pad while a mouse is in use. When I go to the control panel and click the mouse icon, I am not presented with option to adjust or turn off the touch pad. Any ideas?

I have a Compaq Presario CQ62. When typing anywhere, the cursor randomly jumps to another spot in the text and continue inserting text there. How do I correct this?


This typically happens when the typist's palms touch the touchpad, which the pad treats as a mouse click. See if the cursor is jumping to where the pointer is.
Most touchpads have a control panel (usually part of the MOUSE Control Panel) where you can reduce the sensitivity (or disable) the left click function from tapping the touchpad.

Compaq presario cq60 labtop- the touchpad mouse goes crazy!


os? vista, 7, x64??? ok lets get to a base point. you had a different mouse, is it still installed? Is the dongle still plugged in? are the drivers loaded? uninstall drivers in control panel. remove all traces of every other mouse, pad, pointers, etc from your cq60. in device manager you should show Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad under MICE AND OTHER POINTING DEVICES. if after reboot the touchpad is still not working then right clock the Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad in the device manager and select uninstall. reboot. let me know when you get to that point.

I am using my phone to ask this question.


Hello,

the touch pad is usually controlled by synaptic.

To turn it on back, press start menu from your key board and scroll to control panel.

From control panel, use the tab button to select the icons on control panel and go to mouse.

From mouse, use your keyboard to control to device settings.

From device settings, you would see synaptics touch pad, then press enable and that's all.

You touch pad would then be enabled again.

All the best.

How do I disable touch pad when using a mouse? ASUS K50IJ Win7 64 bit


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

Unfortunately, there are no keyboard shortcuts to enable/disable Touchpad movement or tapping. You can however drag the Mouse icon from the control panel to your Quick launch bar for quick access.

If that sounds too much effort, you may consider adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. This can be accessed from the Touch Pad tab of our mouse properties. Choose a low setting.

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.

System freezing when touchpad not being used.


This will be one of three things; 1- a driver glitch with the touch pad. Uninstall the drivers for the touch pad from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers automatically. You might also look at Compaq's support site for any updated drivers or patches for the touch pad. 2- You may have a loose connection. Remove the keyboard, check and clean the touch pad connection/connector. 3- A faulty touch pad. If the other two don't work, then disconnect the touch pad and try using the machine with an external mouse. If this works, then the touch pad has malfunctioned and needs replacing. Ty these and let me know.

Touch pad center click button no longer works


Near your clock, you'll usually find an icon for your touch pad (probably synaptics). Open this & select mouse properties, in there look under Device Settings & try the "Reset Devices" icon.

If that don't work, Click start>control panel (classic view)>mouse.
On the Touchpad tab, make sure the 'tapping' box is checked . Click apply, click ok.

If that doesn't work, click start>run, type devmgmt.msc
and click ok.
Click the plus to expand Mice and Other Pointing Devices.
Right click and uninstall any mouse or touchpad listed.
Reboot.
Let Windows rediscover and reinstall the touchpad drivers.

Good Luck!
