Touch Pad error

I just got an HP G62-347CL notebook and every once in awhile a picture with a finger comes up with a line through it and the light on the touch pad turns yellow and it stops working, I have been plugging in a mouse and that works but I mainly like to use the touch pad when using the computer. Any ideas?

Re: Touch Pad error

No, an error shows up on the computer, a yellow light goes on on the touchpad, and then I either have to add the mouse or restart the computer

Re: Touch Pad error

Yes, I am getting the same error. Touchpad locks up. Have to restart.... Do I keep hitting a button that causes this?? Please help. Thanks!

Re: Touch Pad error

that is the touch pad lock. if you double tap where the little amber light is in the upper left hand corner it will turn the touch pad back on.... if you don't want the pad to be be able to turn off go into the synaptics pointer setting and turn off the disable touch pad feature.
