touchpad lock button is not working

I just purchased my laptop last year, November. It's HP Pavillion dm3. I usually lock the touch pad and use an external mouse. These past few days, the lock button just above the touch pad is not working anymore so i cannot lock it. Please help. :smileysad:

Re: touchpad lock button is not working

thanks, i tried it but it's really not working. the pin light beside it is still white which means it's unlocked.

it's supposed to be orange when locked.

Re: touchpad lock button is not working

Locking as in the touchpad On/Off Switch is not working?

Have you install the Touchpad driver and checked... Post the link, just in case... ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp44501-45000/sp44940.exe
