Re: touchpad in hp probook 4530s doesnt work

Why is there no documentation on how to use the 4530s touchpad in the HP manuals? This is a total screw-up as far as I am concerned. I have never seen HP slip to such lows for providing correct documentation for their products.

Re: touchpad in hp probook 4530s doesnt work

my probook 4530s does every time it comes back from hibernation.

when i reboot, it works just fine.

but then i hibernate and when i come back the mouse doesnt move, so i have to use the keyboard to reboot.

driver is up to date. i go to device manager (using the keyboard) and synaptics is just there as working properly.

any clues on hoe to get this fixed.

thanks

Re: touchpad in hp probook 4530s doesnt work

My touchpad has also failed in the last two days. Cursor arrow is seen, but left-click does not open features.

I am desperate. My warranty on this expired end of October. Everything was working fine for the last few months.

I have installed the latest Synaptics driver from the 4530s Drivers page.

The Device Manager tab for the touchpad states: 'device is working properly'.

The 'disable' light in the upper left of the pad is OFF. I am able to use the laptop with a USB mouse plugged-in, but I would prefer to use the pad.

The only other recent change has been the roll-out of a new version of Yahoo.Mail, which features unusual visuals ('hover', auto-scroll, etc).

Yahoo made this change within the last few days as well. I think there is a bug/incapatibility issue, but I am not sure.

Can this Touchpad be swapped out with a new one? Has anyone tried this?

If anyone can help, PLEASE offer any suggestions! Thnx.

Re: touchpad in hp probook 4530s doesnt work

Try tapping the amber light quickly with a stiff finger - no swiping.  This should cause the amber light to disappear, allowing cursor movement.

If repeated single taps do not work, try a quick 'double-tap' to get the light to turn off.
